The name has been changed to Cat Ba Paradise Hotel. The place seemed abandoned. The staff while we were there consisted of one junkie--coming in at night you have weave through a crowd of his stoned friends gambling, smoking, and being rowdy, and in the morning I couldn't find him to get our passports back--found someone in the street who knew where to look for him in a back room but it took him 15 minutes to pull himself together and come out, mad as heck at being woken. Came within a few minutes of missing our tour because of it. Oddly enough, room was clean and everything worked, but a shady place with a staff that would rather you didn't stay there and disturb them.
