Plus points: on a quiet street but still convenient; a nice, old fashioned feel, helpful receptionist, optional spa facilities and restaurant/ bar if you want. Reasonable price (we paid $19) including breakfast. Minus points: bathrooms very old and not very good (you won't get a satisfying shower here), in low season you won't find anyone in the bar/restaurant, spa facilities...

Room looked ok but the beds had obviously not been cleaned since the last guests. Felt very dirty. Breakfast was very basic (bread, jam and option for eggs). Did the job for an overnight stay but I wouldn't choose it for a long trip.

Just returned after my girlfriend and I had a lengthy refund battle with the staff... The jacuzzi was filthy and the masseuses were caked in makeup and wearing bra and hot pants... Not exactly the 'professional' spa service we had in mind. We asked for a refund and were refused. The duty manager eventually agreed to repay us 300 of...

We did a kayaking tour over the Lan Ha bay rented from Catba. After 3 hours kayaking under the sun by 35deg, we ran out of water and tired. We saw the resort from the sea and wanted to get there to ask if we can buy water and maybe eat. When we were 50m from the beach, a 'man'...

We supposed to stay there for three nights but we decided to leave earlier. The room was dirty and the bathroom was not well clean. Only one person of the staff was able to speak English and it was really noisy, due to a lot of organised tour that were staying there. Moreover, they charge 5% for card payment. Other...

The hotel is located pretty close to the main strip of Cat Ba Town with a lot of restaurants near by. Check-in and Check-out have been fast and straight forward. Our room was on the second floor, so we didn't have the nicest view. Considering the price tag it was good value for the money. The room was clean and...

I went to this hotel to get a massage and I had the worst experience there! I almost never write bad reviews like this, but I have to tell everyone what happened to me. I got a massage there. It was not very good in comparison with other massages I got before. The pressure was uneven and caused pain in...

This hotel located in centre of Catba island, it is convenient for moving and easy to find restaurants around. Room equipment is old. Staffs are not professional, especially receptionists are bad and rude. Breakfast is quite good, you can enjoy breakfast and also ocean view.
