This hotel was good value and comfortable, the view over the bay was very nice. The rooms were clean but there were a few ants around, this wasn't too much of an issue though. The staff were friendly and helpful and spoke very good english.

We didn't have anything booked after leaving a terrible hotel nearby. Nicely approached on the street by a helpful Vietnamese man that spoke perfect English. Top floor rooms overlooking harbour nicest. Only paid 250,000 dong for a night. Great bathroom with nice shower perfect for after boat trip. Organised bus to Hanoi with no fuss.

Simple hotel with okay beds, wi-fi, bathroom and a excellent host called Larry who was really friendly and will give you good advice on what to do! The view was also stunning and the hotel is located in the center of the town which is great because it was close to all the night life and activities during the day!

The hotel is okay, but it has some ants walking on the floor, of course you can't expect too much in SE Asia for the budget price. You can get better at other hotels with a much nicer view (I.e. without the mega TV in front). These people will just completely lie about the tour. We had an explanation about...

Rooms were ok for the price, no more and no less. We've been there in off-season and paid 12$ for a double per night (without breakfast). The view of the front rooms is great, you can sit on the shared balcony observing the local harbour's atmosphere. We booked a one day trip as well as scooters at the hotel, price...

We booked this place during a two-month trip around SE Asia as it was very cheap which is something I always take into account when reviewing. However the room we were given was dirty, the bathroom smelt strongly of urine and indeed I had to clean under the seat and the curtains smelt quite badly as they needed a clean....

An excellent option in a great location. The sea view rooms have outstanding views, the hotel is clean and cheap. I ended up staying longer than initially planned, and would certainly stay here again. The staff can help organise tours, motos etc, or walk just a few meters to the centre of things and do it yourself.

I work and stay in Haiphong about 45 minutes by boat from Cat Ba Island. My favorite hotel on Cat Ba Island is definitely the Cat Ba Dream Hotel. I always stay in a lovely spacious room with a balcony and wonderful sea view. Only 5 minutes walk from the speed boat port and great restaurant nearby. 15 minutes walk...

The location of this place is perfect, especially the rooms with seaview are amazing. Rooms are clean and not too small. Beds were comfortable. Rest of the hotel was simple, not much to do, but close to restaurants/boulevard. Good value for money (10$).

Good location, good value and clean. (if you don't mind aunts in the room) The hotel is just by the busstation and habour. Frontdesk can help to organize trips on the Catba island and transfer to other destinations.
