I have stayed at the Catic Hotel many, many times due to business. The place is fairly clean and things work. Reception is efficient. There is currently a construction site next door, so keep your windows closed and you will get a good night's sleep.
It is good value for money and that's about it. The hotel is more catered towards tour groups from the rest of the country and at breakfast you will see the groups busy getting their share before leaving in their tour group buses. Anyway if you find it hard to get your share of breakfast, you have not missed anything.
The location is very near Jiuzhou pier where one can board a high speed ferry to Hong Kong, Hong Kong Airport or Shenzhen. So this is a good place to stay if you have an early ferry to catch or if you just arrived on a late ferry. You can easily flag down a taxi for the ferry port here, there should be no jumps on the taximeter.
By the way, the second floor mushroom restaurant is very good, the mushrooms are flown in daily from Yunnan province and are very nice. It is not part of the hotel though.More
