We stayed for 4 nights in a double room with balcony overlooking the harbour. The room was spotless with A/C, fan, satellite TV and fridge. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but the shower had plenty of hot water.
It was very quiet and comfortable. Location was good, the hotel was situated right at the harbour, where you are walking distance from restaurants, bars, etc.
The staff were very very friendly and attentive, and were NOT peddling tours or day trips, they gave us a page with the detailed info of what they offered, and that was it. Excellent.
Breakfast was not included but they had a restaurant downstairs which was had well priced, home cooking.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. At $10/night, this is the cheapest place we stayed in Viet Nam, but one of the best.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Good location, the hotel has private bancony, overlooking Catba harbour, WiFi, refrigerator, telephone, AC and fan. This place is one of the chosen sweeties of a very popular guide book, and it remains a reasonable choice, if only because the owner,Mr David speaks English quite well, and can be very helpful in sorting out tours, and activities while you’re on the island. However, we felt he was resting on his laurels a bit when it came to some minor house-keeping matters. Nothing too serious it’s just that — well…stained linens, even when clean, are always a little disconcerting. And, to be honest. But Tom’s a savvy guy, and he’s probably going to read this, so maybe he’ll do something about it by the time you visit. Recommended by the guide book Lonely Planet and ... more less
