This hotel serves as a good base to enjoy Cat Ba island, Lan Ha and Ha Long bays. The hotel itself is within the good national average. Not amazing, but really decent, especially regarding the price. Very close to Cat ba town main restaurants, bars, and bus station, it is located a bit up a main street, allowing for less...

This hotel is fairly decent, especially for the price. You're not getting a luxury hotel by any means, but our room was comfortable and clean. We had booked a triple room as there were three of us staying there, and when we got to the room there was only one king sized bed. We went back downstairs and talked to...

Our room was a little bit run down, but for 18$ the it will give you a good night's sleep. Seems clean and the bathroom was perfectly in order. Friendly staff and okay breakfast. Looses one point due to the fact that the sheets had lots of small hairs in them and the bathroom door had a hole in it.

We expected a little more from this hotel after reading the reviews. We found it was just ok. The duvet on our bed was clearly reused as there were hairs all over it, we did have clean sheets though. The room itself is fine, breakfast was ok- nothing special and staff were friendly. On the up side it's very cheap...

We moved from a 80$ a night hotel to this hotel where we paid 18$ a night, and it was a great switch! The staff was super nice, they had great food for a good price, and the room was clean and bright. They rent scooters for 4$ a day compared to 16$ at the other place we stayed. They...

We stayed at Cat Ba Palace for 3 days, and would recommend it. We asked for room 603, which is huge and roomy with a nice bathroom, good shower and hot water, very comfortable king size bed, balcony and mountain view. It costs a bit more ($20USD) than the other rooms, but it is a significant cut above. Compared to...

All the hotels on Cat Ba Island are quite basic, and we checked out 2 others before settling on Catba Palace. It's centrally located, about a 5 minute walk from the main street in Cat Ba, so it was quiet but easy to get to. Our room was clean and basic, and the shower had ample hot water. Staff were...
