This hotel is in great need of renovation! It's a real pity considering its great seafront location. We had a very spacious room with full sea view, which was amazing, but the bathroom was rusty and had leaking water taps. The bed was extremely uncomfortable - even the night train bed was softer! Also, at night and early morning we...

We are back to this hotel for summer holiday, rooms are old and not clean. Maybe staff dont have much time to clean up when it is crowed in summer. From hotel you can walk to Cat Co beach or walk to Cannon Fort.

What a mistake we made to stay here. Firstly they had not received our booking via Booking.com and were not very friendly in trying to find us a solution - we had to accept the rooms offered. On check in they wanted to hold our passports as security which I refused to accept - they eventually relented and gave our...

Staying here was an uninformed decision, and I advise against it. It's seedy and poorly equipped. They hustled us from the harbour when we were jetlagged and disoriented. We were too bagged to keep looking. It's grungy, unfriendly, unhelpful, and not cheap enough to be those things. Harrumph.

We stayed here for 2 nights having struggled to find anywhere that 'jumped out' at us on Cat Ba island..In our opinion it is worst 'value for money' hotel we have ever stayed in. The bed was rock solid and the air con temperamental so we barely slept. The bathroom was rusty and also had black mould on around the...

We stayed here for 1 night as part of the Halong Bay Imperial Cruise 2 night tour. After reading some of the previous reviews its fair to say we were a little apprehensive. However we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was in a good location, the rooms were huge, clean and pleasant. I have stayed in a lot worse that's...

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was awful- not catered for Westerners in the slightest. Food was terrible, restaurant staff were rude and had to be asked to refill cutlery/plates/water etc... Hotel manager was extremely rude, a rip off merchant and did nothing to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. The lifts stopped at every floor, whether someone was...

“If possible, ask for a room that is not exposed to the late evening noise from the loud speakers of the resort down the road. Don't know whether you can also ask for a room with a softer mattress if you are not used to sleeping on hard mattress.”
