We had a WONDERFULL sea view, large room and very friendly staff. We had a good load of laundry done efficiently and it was crisp and dry within 24hrs. The staff speaks little to no English and cannot really help you navigate a bus or a restaurant. The room had ants, even though the place was pretty well kept and...

Went there for breakfast, which turned out to be a mistake. The food tasted like it was cooked a week before, the staff were rude and theres much nicer places to eat all around it. Havent heard much good about any of the food here from other people either.

To start off, the enterance to the hotel smells horrible and is filthy because they clean fish there, imagine that smell first thing in the morning. The owner is not friendly to say the least, no pillow covers and stinky bathroom, not to mention that we couldn't get a nights sleep because of the staffs constant yelling in the building...

Good price, sea views, simple, but very comfortable! Everything is walkable from here: Cat ba 1, 2 and 3; park with great views and interesting military history. Easier to rent a motorbike and ride to the nature preserve, I hear, though I didn't opt for that particular excursion.

My friends and I rocked up to Thu Ha with no reservation and the owner was happy to give us a room with a seaside view for an affordable price. As the other reviewers have said, the hotel lacks charm but for my stay was clean and comfortable enough. I did notice ants about the room however. Our room was...

Excellent location, budget hotel on the main strip.Very large rooms with double beds, spotty free wi-fi, hot water shower, tv, bar fridge, fan and amazing view. Sixth floor room serviced by elevator is a great value for only $10USD. The staff are friendly but very limited English, but good housekeeping and value, highly recommended.

“Ask for sea (Bay) view rooms. If there aren't any it is probably worth trying the massive number of hotels lined up along the water front. Haggle for price as there is definitely some room for negotiation.”
