We booked this place during a two-month trip around SE Asia as it was very cheap which is something I always take into account when reviewing. However the room we were given was dirty, the bathroom smelt strongly of urine and indeed I had to clean under the seat and the curtains smelt quite badly as they needed a clean.... More

An excellent option in a great location. The sea view rooms have outstanding views, the hotel is clean and cheap. I ended up staying longer than initially planned, and would certainly stay here again. The staff can help organise tours, motos etc, or walk just a few meters to the centre of things and do it yourself.

I work and stay in Haiphong about 45 minutes by boat from Cat Ba Island. My favorite hotel on Cat Ba Island is definitely the Cat Ba Dream Hotel. I always stay in a lovely spacious room with a balcony and wonderful sea view. Only 5 minutes walk from the speed boat port and great restaurant nearby. 15 minutes walk... More

The location of this place is perfect, especially the rooms with seaview are amazing. Rooms are clean and not too small. Beds were comfortable. Rest of the hotel was simple, not much to do, but close to restaurants/boulevard. Good value for money (10$).

Good location, good value and clean. (if you don't mind aunts in the room) The hotel is just by the busstation and habour. Frontdesk can help to organize trips on the Catba island and transfer to other destinations.

I stayed at Cat ba Dream during my recent visit to Cat ba. The rooms were of different sizes, but the price seemed the same. Ask for one facing the sea for best light, but those will also give you the most noise! I was there during low season, so many hotels were doing upgrades, mine included. No need for... More

I myself am an easy person, but this hotel was pretty good for the small amount. I had a spacious room with bathroom apart and 2 bed which one was a 2 persons bed. The view was fabulous, lots of windows. It's not very fancy and even a bit simpel but it absolutely does the trick. So when u don't... More

This hotel was a 10/10 purely because of San- one of the main staff. Never in 4 months of traveling and hotels have we come across someone so helpful and wonderful. He is genuine to the bone, and is honest from the beginning- never ripping you off for your money. He was so good to us, so helpful, and so... More

We came to Cat Ba in September and we were looking for a clean and comfortable room. The Cat Ba Dream Hotel was right at the bay, seemed to have a great view and was recommended to us, so we booked a room on the seventh floor there for 250 000 Dong, which is an excellent price overall. The real... More

Even though this is a beach area with sunshine and good fun, we all want a bit of wifi at the end of the day. In this average tier hotel, you can connect to the wifi, but the internet is horribly slow, close to physically painful. Rooms are decently clean, but there is a strange scent in the room, could...
