Trang Anh Sea View Hotel
Ranked #5 of 75 Cat Ba B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had a great stay at Alibabas. Ba speaks perfect english and is a warm and generous host. He invited us to have dinner with his family one night which was great fun. It was am enlightening experience conversing with Ba and his brother about modern Vietnamese culture and traditions.

We went on a one day boat tour with him which I highly reccomend, Ba was a great guide and the food was delicious!

We stayed at Alibaba's in March 2014 for two nights. Our choice was made based on the tripadvisor reviews and we were really not disappointed! Getting a double room with private bathroom, SEA VIEW (!!) and WIFI for such a small price is really a bargain. Mr Ba and his wife, the owners, are incredibly friendly and helpful. We wanted to go kayaking, Mr Ba organised it for us with a smile (including free transportation on his motorbike), we were looking for the best way to get back to Hanoi, same thing (except motorbike of course) etc etc. The food is cheap and quite good. Only minus point is that the mattresses are a little hard, but hey, you could be sleeping in a tent for this price...

AliBaba's Hotel Is a wonderful place! The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. He offers boat trips on his brothers small boat with an extremely friendly environment. On some nights Ba, the owner, is willing to have a good time with the good people around him. He enjoys good company and many of the people staying at Alibabas are just that. Many of the rooms have windows looking out on the harbor and the rooms all have fans to keep the room cool, or dry wet clothes.

Alibaba's hotel is probably the best place I ever slept. The owner and his family are the best. Always here for you, for every things you need. Cruise on the Saigon bay, laundry, excellent food, motorbike. Smile always stick on his face, mr Ba is a legend for every people who came in his hotel.
Honestly if you have already booking in a other hotel, cancel your room now !!!! And come book one here and experiment the Mr. Ba signature !!!

Honestly, we were really lucky to find this place. We did not have any plans where to stay in Cat Ba Town so we took the fist Hotel which had a good impression on us. Mr. Ba gave us a friendly welcome und it felt like home from the first second.

The rooms are big and offer a fantastic view ober the harbour of Cat Ba Town. The beds are king-size and are very comfortable. Furthermore, the bathroom is well equipped and also quite big.

One night, we had a sea food hot pot at the restaurant. I only can recommend to everybody to try such a meal. The amount of different fish was incredible and it tasted so good!

The manager was awesome and we had a great room. The mattresses aren't extremely comfortable, but that was the only downfall. The free breakfast is pretty good as well. Our view from the hotel was amazing and he also did our laundry for cheap.
