    The room is spacious. They were cleaning it every days as well as changing towels too. The bathroom was a little mouldy but it was kept clean. The owners were very helpful but not pushy .The food was good and portion were copious and affordable price. So overall if we were to come back to cat ba we would come back to the same hotel.

    Big dorm room, clean, freshly painted, no mold issues in the bedroom. They provided a towel. No individual lights at the beds, but there are power outlets. The dorm is on the 4th floor, stairs only. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Inexpensive scooter rentals here. I met good folks while staying here

    Beautiful hotel with amazing view from the bay. For the price you can't go wrong. The owner was very friendly and helpful and told us all we needed to know. If you need to book a tour go through them! Our boat tour was beyond expectation. And I also met some great people there. Wifi didnt work very well, and the shower would get cold sometime, but for the price it cannot be beat. Would recommend.

    Good location, free breakfast and lovely reception lady ( or manager, owner maybe). One big minus - room was very damp. We decided to look for another hotel for the next day ( initially we booked just for one), but since the staff was so nice we decided to stay one more night despite the dampness :) Wifi in the rooms so so, usualy you had to stand up and go closer to the door in order to get some internet. Anyway, friendly manager made the stay great, thanks.
