The owner (we think?) of the hotel always put in the extra effort to make us feel comfotable at the hotel. We asked if we could eat dinner at the hotel but came out with glasses of fresh orange juice as an apology for having no kitchen staff, and also offered us a temporary room to shower and change in...

Most of Cat Ba Island is covered in cheap hostels for various international backpackers and fairly old run down family owned hotels. Cat Ba Palace was neither of these and was a comfortable, clean and pleasant hotel. The hotel is up the hill a bit, so you lose out on the ocean view that many of the other hotels in... More

We stayed here for two nights and were very pleasantly surprised! The manager did everything he could for us - he kept us supplied with free bottles of water, and when we came back sweaty from a long walk he provided us with free cold Fanta and offered us a room to shower and change (this was after we had...

Finding accommodations in Cat Ba was tricky, as hotels seem to be either supremely dodgy, isolated, or overpriced. Cat Ba Palace hotel falls nicely in the middle. The rate was extremely reasonable, especially since we visited during the high season. Rooms were very spacious and clean and maintained daily. The location is good because it is off the main road...

We stayed at a nearby hotel while the rest of our group stayed here. We gave our laundry to this hotel. They charged us $2 per kilo but when we got it back, it was still quite dirty. There was literally mud on it. Total waste of money. They also keep your passport while you're staying there.

Generally, Cat Ba hotels seem to fall into two categories: Expensive resort hotels that trap you in their isolated location and have more than questionable TA reviews, or low cost low quality hotels. In this environment, the Cat Ba palace hotel stood out to us for its price value proposition: For the price we paid a reasonably clean room was... More
