After, within 24h of arriving at Cat Ba, having left two unsatisfactory hotels (Phong Lan, because of bedbugs; and Thu Ha, because of noisy construction work that began next door at 6am), we finally found Cat Ba Sea View. The price offered was more than fair, the rooms were immaculate and spacious, and we slept like babies, with no distractions.... More

Just arrived here for couple of hours, really love the spacious room with sea view balcony. Good tips and advice for our trip as well. Good location as well, right in the centre of catba town. The staff are really nice and friendly

We stumbled upon this hotel from a suggestion from our tour company Asia Outdoors and it was right beside their office . They offered a slightly high rate of $12 for seaview corner room, even gave us the choice between 2 rooms. After walking around town we noticed $8-$10 was more standard. But our room was very large with 2... More

Easily the nicest place we stayed in during our trip through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and somehow the cheapest too! We might have just got lucky due to the time of year though. Good location on the main street and the arch out the front is a prime meeting location for catching up with friends/ other travelers. The staff were... More

We stayed at Sea View for 3 nights and it was a great, modern room. It is a budget hotel but it didn't feel like it. The shower was one of those big shower heads which was amazing. The beds were fairly soft. Reception wasn't anything too special, not friendly yet not rude. The only con is that we had... More

Came across this after turning up to cat ba without booking anything and trying four other hotels on the main strip. Mr manager (didnt get his name sorry) was very friendly and accommodating. The room was a really good size with two double beds and the biggest bathroom we've had in Vietnam. The food and massage was also very good... More

A clean, budget place with large rooms and clean beds. It's a fine place to stay if you just got off the bus and want to stay on the main road. Pretty quiet at night, with only a little bit of bass from the restaurant next door. Honestly, for how cheap it is, it's a nice place. The staff was... More

Woke up at 6am due to rats running about the room. They had eaten my food and crapped all over my clothes. Realised the dirt we had wiped off the bed the night before was rat droppings. Cheap price, hotel room was decent, lovely view, staff are nice, but not worth it.

A few days after arriving to Hanoi, me and a few friends is met in Bangkok, headed to Cat Ba - 6 hours away. We arrived at 4 after getting the 10am bus/ boat and arrived at the very quaint, very relaxed harbour. Straight away we headed to Bamboo restaurant after reading reviews somewhere - food was good, had most... More

This place is really bad! It is in a great location, unfortunately the room we got is terrible! Very small, smells terrible and no windows! The smell is the worst I've ever smelled. I had to cover my pillow with my jacket, it smells so bad! We didn't book a room before we got here so it was a last... More
