    Lovely clean place, we loved it!”

    When we arrived the owner invited us to drink some tea, which was super nice. The whole family is very welcoming and just lovely. We really enjoyed our stay, because the rooms are super clean, the breakfast includes everything you could asked for and they help you out, whenever you have a question. Our favorite hotel in Vietnam so far.

    Pleasantly surprised”

    This place is great value for money. The location is great, right on the ocean front with sea views from most rooms. The staff were friendly and always around and their English was good enough. The rooms were clean although a little outdated. Be warned that there isn't a lift so you have to climb a lot of stairs. We extended our stay for an extra night and would recommend to other budget travellers.

    Made things easy for us”

    The host runs a nice basic hotel. He and his family are very accommodating and helped us with a very cramped schedule. His boat tour of the bay and Monkey Island are well worth it. He worked out our transport back to Haiphong easily while fitting our schedule and then allowed us to use an empty for last minute showers well after check out time.

    could be a lot cleaner and found a bedbug”

    It's a basic budget place so don't expect too much - but I ended up moving after 2 nights because I saw an adult bedbug crawl across my blanket on the second night. After I moved, I also realized that I shouldn't have put up with the place at all as I didn't feel it was too clean from the start. Place is cheap but so are many others in town that are better value. I found the bathroom was among the least clean in all the places I stayed at in Vietnam and Thailand (also all budget places). The room wasn't great either - blankets had stains, etc. even though they were probably laundered. I was there in March so the whole town was very damp, but this room was more damp and smelled of mildew which was also the case in another place I moved to. However, one place I stayed at was not damp and didn't smell of mildew - maybe because it was on the far end of Nui Ngoc St. away from the water. I don't blame them for the dampness but they could do a much better job of cleaning. overall, an unpleasant stay and Inwould advise looking around for a much better value for your budget dollar.

    Too much budget”

    I typically stay in budget hotels, but this one was too budget. Very, very damp, humid, musty. We could open the windows and turn on the fan, which was a blessing, but the only place to put clothes, in an armoire, smelled aweful. The bathroom was tiny, smelly and wet. For awhile the sink drained right onto the floor. That was fixed but the shower did the same with no way to dry things out. That said, the view was lovely, location great, staff friendly. We just couldn't take the humidity and smell, so left a day early.

    Not what the original booking implied”

    I booked for Alibaba's hotel, but the address I was given was for Trang Anh. Needless to say, I was confused. The pictures for the room were nothing like the actual. I had two beds, one was a spring mattress where you could feel every spring, the other was like a mattress board. I slept on the board. If you like sleeping on hard surfaces, it's fine. There were tiny ants in my room when I got there, which they then sprayed. Though the tiny ants were back a few at a time the following days. The hot water is only for a few hours in the morning and in the evening. And it doesn't last very long. The people are friendly though and they have cheap prices on tours. I didn't mind staying there, but it's definitely a little run down.

    This hotel is well located. The room is spacious and clean. The only charm of our room though was the balcony with the amazing view. Other than that, we've had much nicer and more modern rooms for that price. The bathroom is very cramped and smells humidity. There are really bad smells in the lobby and in the tiny elevator. The owner is very nice! All in all, it's a good choice...just a bit overpriced for what you get.

    Awesome; thanks, Ba!”

    Great hotel. We had a spectacular room on the 6th floor with a balcony view of the harbor and all the little boats in Cat Ba. No worries about the 6th floor--they have a shiny modern elevator. Excellent value-for-money, best we've had in Vietnam so far. Ba is very (very) friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The place is steps from one of the most popular eateries on the island. Ba's tour was great too, and we were among others who'd paid more for the same tour. The "cherry on top" was that we'd booked for a particular night, paying in advance, but bad weather meant we were a day late for our reservation. We called Ba that night, he said, "No problem", and we had the same room with no money lost for the next night. Seriously, come to Ali Babas. Thanks again!

    Worst experience ever”

    Where to begin? - No heating, with 12 degrees Celsius at night you need heating. - Poor English, really hard for them to understand you. - They gave us a dirty room, we asked to change it and it was changed, but not even an apology was given. - Bad bookrecords, took them a lot to find our reservation at arrival and at checkout - They retained our passports during our stay and did not return it when left. We realised 1 hour later on a 5 hours trip which consisted of 3 buses and 1 speedboat. Called them and they said that they were going to send it on the next boat and that it was our fault for not asking for the passports. 3 hours later next bus arrived and no news of our passport. Called them and they told me that it was full (it's a paper, no bus or boat is full for a paper). That it was coming on the next one 2 hours later, which it did. It was night, in the middle of nowhere and with 2 more ours of travel ahead.
