Catba Princes Hotel
Ranked #26 of 37 Hotels in Hai Phong
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

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 look ok but not luxury.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled as a couple

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 the paid 500VND. Not acceptable.
Avoid unless you're happy to contract a water borne illness and possibly an STD.

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' was screaming loudly : get out of here, shaking his hand. Not any guest on the beach, we disturbed nodoby. We were thirsty and he didn't try to help us at all. We finally paddled 40min more to find a nice guy. I didnt spend a night here and just for this bad experience, this place deserve this rating. It show how bad the staff is !!!

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 guests were very loud with children screaming all time and ringing all the doorbells.

Do not go there if you are not local.
