We'll definitely recommend this hotel since it's amazingly cheap and very tidy. We booked a room with a beautiful view of the sea. The room was big enough and clean. Nothing you can call luxury but consider the price. Besides, the owners are very very friendly!

Simple hôtel with good views. Very nice people working here. We originally booked for two nights but we end up staying four nights. We even asked for laundry and had our clothes dried hanging next to our door the next morning ! Fantastic spot.

We spent one night in Cat Ba town before going on a boat trip for 3 days. The trip was quit expensive so we wanted to save money on the accommodation.

Yes, there are shortcomings to this hotel. Lots of stairs and no lift, very hard beds in some rooms, very strange plumbing (sink empties directly onto bathroom floor then runs down a drain...), but wake up and look out of the window and that all melts away! It's perfectly located near the ferry dock along the seafront, near to restaurants...

My husband and I returned to Cat Ba Second, we have stayed at motels Nam Phuong, budget rooms but also cheap price, I paid the $ 15/night. a space hotel overlooking the sea is great. Owner very friendly, they guided us on how to go to market specifically to buy seafood. we had a great time at Cat Ba.

View was awesome, but then again, each hotel on the bay road has the same view. We paid $39 for two rooms for 5 people. Rooms were outdated, airco didn't work very well. The next day we found a better hotel. $22 for a bigger room with soft matresses.

This hotel has some rooms with an amazing view over cat ba bay. Our room was pretty large and had two queen size beds in it. The beds were impossibly hard. We might as well have been sleeping on the floor. The pillows felt like concrete blocks. Seriously if this hotel got new bedding and mattresses this would be a...

We got there and they moved us to a room above their restaurant. The room was small and the beds were extremely hard. No mini fridge and the hot water didn't work.
