“Do NOT go here!”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

This hotel seems good value with large rooms. Staff are helpful and willing to arrange things for you, but: it is a facade! We were robbed in this hotel: money and memory cards were stolen by hotel staff while cleaning our room. Unfortunately we only found when we'd already left Cat Ba island.

Stayed September 2011, travelled as a couple

Reviewed 1 September 2011

We paid 22 USD each nights for a dooble bed room (2 people) which was one of the most expensive hotel we have done. And not the better one!

Staff is not nice and bad english spoken except one girl, the guy who welcomed us had taken drugs before according to his face...
Bed sheets werent clean at all.

Otherwise, the bedroom was quite huge and not so bad (cleaned but not every days).

In a nutshell : too much expensive for what you have but OK if you dont have the choice (according to the number of hotels in Cat Ba Town, you have this choice!)

When we arrived at Cat Ba we just walked in to ask for a room and they had one available with a great view of the sea. The room was large enough for us, but the bed sheets could have been better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As other reviewers mentioned, this hotel is in a price/quality range not found a lot in Cat Ba, which makes it a good choice.

Reviewed 25 February 2011

I only stayed here because there seems to be a gap in Cat Ba town between countless very low standard hotels and a handful of nice but over priced ones. My sheets had obviously been slept in before, were full of cigarette burns, were damp, and the "blanket" was a very thin coverlet which didn't keep me warm at all. I asked for the controls to the air conditioner so I could turn it to warm, but I was told it didn't work and it wasn't cold. I hardly slept (despite being fully clothed) as I was itching and cold, so I got up and left at 5 am. It could be considered value for money as the room was only $10 but I would not recommend it.

This hotel is a little gem on Cat Ba Island. Rooms were cheap, clean and the staff were very very friendly and helpful. Good English is spoken and it's a great base to explore the island. If you're staying on Cat Ba, go to this hotel! Great budget option at rooms for around 10US!
