Staying here was an uninformed decision, and I advise against it. It's seedy and poorly equipped. They hustled us from the harbour when we were jetlagged and disoriented. We were too bagged to keep looking. It's grungy, unfriendly, unhelpful, and not cheap enough to be those things. Harrumph.

We stayed here for 2 nights having struggled to find anywhere that 'jumped out' at us on Cat Ba island..In our opinion it is worst 'value for money' hotel we have ever stayed in. The bed was rock solid and the air con temperamental so we barely slept. The bathroom was rusty and also had black mould on around the... More

We stayed here for 1 night as part of the Halong Bay Imperial Cruise 2 night tour. After reading some of the previous reviews its fair to say we were a little apprehensive. However we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in a good location, the rooms were huge, clean and pleasant. I have stayed in a lot worse that's... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was awful- not catered for Westerners in the slightest. Food was terrible, restaurant staff were rude and had to be asked to refill cutlery/plates/water etc... Hotel manager was extremely rude, a rip off merchant and did nothing to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The lifts stopped at every floor, whether someone was... More

The trip began with being advised that we were on a 9th Floor Room, not a problem for me, however, the duration in the Lift to the 9th floor took about 10 minutes to reach said floor - the only way it could have felt slower is if it was rammed full of people and it was extremely hot in... More

Other guests shout at each other in the corridors & canteen (it cannot claim to be a restaurant); smoke in the corridors and put the butts in the plant pots; despite no smoking sign in reception, people smoke and the staff ignore it; the smell of smoke seeps into your room.

The price of this hotel counts heavily against it. The hotel feels dead or dying. The food hit and miss, both dinner and breakfast. The interior and furnishings are seriously in need of an update. The only good parts are the view and the beds are softer than most of the other hotels in Cat Ba. If you pay to... More
