...this isn't the place. In a word, "uncomfortable."

Beds are the hardest I've ever slept on (north American, Asian, South American, European, African).

AC stopped working about 5 minutes in.

Noise has been unbearable - from the street (sounds like the honking busses are in the hallway), from a loudspeaker going off in the back of the hotel and screaming kids in the hallway (had to go out and give them and their parents the "stern uncle" look.

Also, no safe in the room. Boo.

On the plus size, the rooms are massive, as are the bathrooms, so yeah, there is that I guess.

.....but it is true about the beds. I had to check to see if they had forgotten to put a mattress on the base. However, after a full day of traveling and kayaking, I managed to sleep pretty well and it was for only one night. On the plus side, it's right on a main side street, the rooms and especially the bathroom, very big by Vietnamese standards and the staff are really friendly. We lucked-out on timing and stayed here on Independence day, the town was packed with Vietnamese tourists and it was incredibly noisy as we had a street front room. But as they say in Vietnam, 'go with the flow', any other time would probably be quiet. A good choice if you're in Cat Ba, and you like a hard mattress.

Room Tip: The room on the top floor at the front has a balcony.

The place is just up the main drag about a 10 mins walk to the beach.

Similar to other reviews, these are the hardest beds in Vietnam hands down. They were clean though.

Other items worth noting: FULL SHOWERS! Yes big bathrooms for the country.
Complimentary house coats and shower slippers.

The brekfast was ok but just standard. Had to be oredered the night before I suspect cause it was the slow season.

Final Thoughts: Clean and the showers make this place worth the stay. Would stay there again.

Some might say super hard..! Average hotel but then Cat Ba is not very interesting for Vietnam. Wouldn't go again. Some good restaurants on the seafront but more expensive here than other parts of Vietnam.

The rooms were a reasonable size and clean but the beds were like Rick they were so hard. We only stayed one night and that was enough. The location of the hotel is good and a very short walk to good bars and restaurant. Breakfast was basic but good value and tasty
