The rooms are good here, we had 2 nights in the Seaview room which was very nice and 3 nights in a double room without a view.. also good. The hot water in the shower is poor, and it seems they control it from reception and so late at night we couldn't have a shower as it was turned off... More

Booked the room with very short notice, got a free upgrade. Room very clean and staff very willing to help with requests. Went on the island tour booked through the hotel which was great. Hotel were able to sort out transport back to mainland, very satisfied. Great hotel, great value.

When we booked this hotel, we knew that Cat Ba island doesn't offer very good standards, so we knew that we couldn't expect much. But we haven't expected to be treated so disrespectfully and we left although we had already paid for a longer stay. When we arrived, I gave the receptionist our Agoda voucher with all the booking details... More

For price of 16 USD per night you get great value. We had superior room with ocean view, fresh towels every day and washed sheets. Furniture little bit outdated, old bathroom with leaking shower corner during showering. You have to wait quite long time for hot water from pipes but everything was working. If you are looking for low price... More

Don't get suckered in by the low price and nice pictures. .this place is horrid. 'Superior ' room doesn't have a window, the walls are paper thin, can hear the next building's shower and toilet flushing, the bed is quite frankly disgracefully lumpy, and as for the groups of Chinese tourists that stay here overnight, up at 06.00 making the...

Excellent value for money, ftiendly and welcoming staff, clean rooms. I stayed in a dorm. The only problem was that the lock in the door did not work. There is safety box for each guest, but still... However, with this price worth it!

We stayed at this nice Family Hotel for 3 nights. The owners are very nice people and there's a good Restaurant. Rooms are clean and spacious. Although we went there Off season so there were construction workers at 7:30am to wake you up. But anyway in Vietnam you have to get up early. Everyone in every Hotel will book Tours... More

Well, I am putting 5 stars here because our room rate was extremely low, the room was large, nice and clean, the beds very comfortable and the view was wonderful. Breakfast was very adequate too. Staff has everything under control and can schedule anything you want at anytime. Laundry service was great too.

Clean and cheap Hotel! I stayed here for 2 nights in a dorm. Really nice stuff that was always really friendly and helped us to organise the trip here in Cat Ba. The location was also really good because it was directly in the middle of the bay side.
