Not recommendable

Friendly staff & decent room
The room itself is ok but the bathroom could really be better... It's located 200m up the street that goes to the main street, so with your luggage is quite a hike. I'd recommend to stay somewhere closer to the main area as there are plenty of options and maybe stay in one of the resorts located in the Cat Co 2 beach (if you can afford it). The stagf is friendly but they rented us a motorbike with just one working brake and no horn or lights...

An easy overnight stay a bit aside of everything

Solid room standard and kind staff
It is a hotel for an easy overnight if you do not expect anything and are ready for compromises. It is quite far uphil from the centre, has no facilities except of a dark restaurant. Staff is helpful.

OK.... That's about it.

Erm... Nothing was the best.
Booked a deluxe room that didn't feel very deluxe (guessing as a lot of rooms were being decorated it wasn't what we bought). Greeted by a massive cockroach. The room was shabby. The view wasn't good (they do have ok views in some rooms). Bathroom was in disrepair and aircon was a bit hit and miss. It was cheap and the lady that worked there was helpful. It is a 5 minute walk from the main front. Nothing to write home about, especially as we had stayed in many other hotels at the same price point and been impressed!

Excellent stay

The room was spacious and clean, the staff were fantastic and the motor bike was a blast
This was a beautiful hotel to stay in. Our room was spacious, clean and modern with great air con and wifi services. We rented a motor bike from the hotel also which was a blast. I highly recommend staying here. It was so affordable and had extremely friendly staff! Great stay!

good place to stay on Cat ba

room, staff, location
Very friendly and helpful man behind the desk. He did bis job with passion. We got some fruits and coffee/tee for free. The room was big, clean and quit. Big window to the back and we just saw green (forest). Location good. A little bit up the hill, but so it is more quit. Breakfast was not included. It is possible to add it for 2$/pax. We didn't eat because we left for daytrips befor the served it. No safe in room. Anyway, we would recommend the hotel.

Meh - but everywhere else is bad

Big Room, Mountain View
Some perspective -I am a frequent traveler in SE Asia Pros: 1. Big room that comfortably fit several people. (It was their large Mountain View room) 2. The shower has hot water and it does not flood 3. Quiet (I heard no wild parties) Cons: 1. The mountain view is kind of hilarious - the building backs up onto the hill and if you don't have mountain view, you get no view or street/trash view. 2. Do not let them wash your clothes. The perfumes lasts (and I am not exaggerating here) for months afterwards - even when YOU wash them at home 3. Not too clean - but that is kind of to be expected. The shower was usable, but nothing to write home about. 4. Even the sheets on the bed had so much perfume that I slept on the little couch on day one. I also rubbed my dirty, jungle trekking clothing all over the sheets in the hopes that it would dissipate the smell. (It did not help...) 5. Cat Ba itself is pretty dumpy. I wish i had not gone. I was going to enjoy one of their swimming beaches, but the dead, bloated dog floating in the bay and the trash dissuaded me.
