This hotel feels very homey. We stayed for only one night but was the best place in our entire trip in the price range of $20-30. Very good location. I really appreciated the space and cleanliness. Just feels nice and pleasant.
Advise: 1.a little hard to find off the main road so do your research prior to arrival.
2. If you can offord it, book the delux room it has a giant king size bed, lovely living area & small balcony.
3. If you ever need a snack, this hotel is very close to the shop that sells the BEST Banh Mi in Vietnam!!! Its only 5min walk away. The shop's name is Huynh Hoa. Address: 26 Le Thi Rieng St.
Enjoy!:)

I'll keep this short and sweet since I don't have much to say about this place.

Pros:
- cheap
- big room and shower
- relatively friendly staff (one boy in particular, the rest not so much)
- in district 1, which is considered the backpacker area
- they'll do your laundry on the cheap and quick if you drop your stuff off at the front desk
- could arrive late, ring the bell and they'd answer quickly

Cons:

- no elevator, prepare to lug your stuff up stairs. Not fun after a long flight and in vietnamese heat.
- the place is down an alley way and you have to walk through a small market area to get to/from
- cash only on checking out was inconvenient, had to run to an ATM and was already in a rush
- female that worked there wasn't particularly helpful, asked about taxi on check out to get to airport and she just told me to go to the Main Street and waive one down, instead of calling one which is what most places would normally do
- only got 2 bottles of water upon check in, no other water provided on subsequent days
- crappy towels
- minibar wasn't restocked after I used it...
- breakfast, I had a small thin omelette and horrible coffee on my first morning and never ate breakfast there again ...


All in all, great if you're a backpacker I guess, but for me, I wouldn't stay here again.

My family and I stayed at Cat Huy for 3 days and 3 nights and absolutely love it. The service is great, breakfast is good, and the price was really cheap for the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. Their staff is really friendly and helpful.

We stayed 4 nights and were very happy with the room, service and breakfast. It was really good value. The hotel is down a lane which has lots of interesting homes selling market produce. Close to good restaurants and sightseeing attractions.

The CatHuy is a great value for travellers. The rooms are very large with lots of room to hang and store your belongings. A mini fridge, great bathroom, and the beds are large and comfortable. Remember most beds are on the firm side in these areas. The location is also fantastic. Close to a lot of shops, restraunts and the market. The only down side is there are no elevators. So if you are fortunate to have a room on the 7th floor like we did, you will get a work out lugging your suit cases up the flights of stairs. Very safe, clean and a nice little market in the mornings for fresh fruit. Great for longer stays.

Room Tip: Pack lite cause there is no elevators, but a wicked deal for the size of rooms.

Stayed 5 nights in this hotel and 3/5 are noisy. No, it's not the voices of people but the ringing of phone, doorbell, chink of plates and cutleries. Room is otherwise huge and clean, aircon is working well and shower has a good pressure. Staff are ok and they do try to help you but I think this still needs some improvement esp in flexibility. Breakkie is adequate.

This small hotel is in District 1 so is very close to many restaurants and shops. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the reception staff spoke good English and were friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom exceeded my expectations for this category of hotel. If I was being picky the only reservation would be about the breakfast. There is very little variety or choice so you might want to skip breakfast if staying more than for a few days. It is located within 2 minutes walk of the bus station. If you are looking for the hotel on the main road you will miss it so look for the hotel sign which will direct you down a small lane. Don't let this put you off, it is only about 100m. Don't make the mistake I did: I took a taxi from the bus station which had an overspeed meter and he took me away from the hotel! Fortunately I had been warned about this scam on TA or it could have been an expensive experience.
