“Worst service yet”
Reviewed January 21, 2011

The name has been changed to Cat Ba Paradise Hotel. The place seemed abandoned. The staff while we were there consisted of one junkie--coming in at night you have weave through a crowd of his stoned friends gambling, smoking, and being rowdy, and in the morning I couldn't find him to get our passports back--found someone in the street who knew where to look for him in a back room but it took him 15 minutes to pull himself together and come out, mad as heck at being woken. Came within a few minutes of missing our tour because of it. Oddly enough, room was clean and everything worked, but a shady place with a staff that would rather you didn't stay there and disturb them.

This was the most expensive place we stayed in our whole time in Vietnam and was not worth half of what we paid. The aircon stopped working at about 8 pm (more likely just turned off at the main) the stool fan had the cord sitting in the plug and not wired up so that didnt work either. The TV stopped working and the water came and went a few times a day for the 2 day duration of our stay. It is the only place I have stayed in Vietnam where I wanted to choke the staff (especially when they tried to demand that we book a tour with them) and burn the place down. Great location.
