10.0 Excellent
Pros: How it was away from everything yet easy to access haylong bay and all around. The food at the bungalows was amazing. Im surprised by reviewers saying food was not value for money. We had lots of freah and tasty Vietnamese food every night (we stayed 4 nights). Breakfast was simple pancakes but no less tasty. They arranged a fantastic private kayaking trip and all our onward journey connections. Great place to stay
Cons: Nothing really... for what it was it was absolutely great. Lots of tours come to the island during the day so the village can be a little busy but thats fine.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: If you want a quiet relaxing place to chill with wonderful views then this is the place to go. Small simple bungalows in a lovely garden where they grow their own veg.
Cons: Would have liked kettle in room but owners very happy to give flask of hot water
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful and friendly staff. The manager went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. We booked tours and transfers via him and can warmly recommend doing so. Location is great and we ate dinner there twice, which was also very good and different both nights.
4.6 Okay
Cons: This place needs a very good clean and the rooms need some maintenance. We were the only people staying there so it did not have the vibe that we were looking for.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great stay in peaceful location away from Cat Ba town. Whisper bungalow is situated right by the Cat Ba National Park making it a perfect location to explore; the boat ride over was amazing to start with! Whilst I was there I went on a great boat trip swimming and kayaking around Lan ha bay. Cuong the owner was really welcoming and helpful - organising the boat trip and transport from the hotel. The food there was amazing - some of the best I’ve had in Vietnam. I’d definitely recommend staying here if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Cat Ba town.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great experience , clean , good dinner and breakfast, very quite. The host was generous and arranged us the way to Hanoi
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Stayed there for two nights. Location was amazing. Very quiet, in the middle of nature, surrounded by mountains. Lot's of butterflies. The bungalows are simple, but cozy and clean - better than expected. Mosquito net was provided. Hike to the viewpoint is highly recommend (~2km from the resort). Had one of the best views ever. The owner is great. He helped us whenever it was needed. He even hiked to the viewpoint with us after he couldn't find an english speaking guide. He also helped us organizing our trip to ninh binh, which worked perfectly. Although there is not really a choice the food, cooked by the owner's wife, was fantastic.
Cons: The door and the window didn't close completely, so there were slits. Because of that there might be some insects in the room. Didn't bother us too much, because a mosquito net was provided - and we had our protecting lizards. However, we saw other bungalows without this problem.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: A lovely quiet place to relax. Great food which was different each evening. The host was really helpful in arranging transfers, boat trips etc.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good information on typhoon whipa. Very good handling of the situation. Thank you Cuong!

Cons: The accomodation is overpriced for what it is
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Quietness. Cute and simple. The bartender was awesome! Thanks Kio! The golden retriever on the island is adorable. “Map.” People have mixed reviews about this place. Don’t listen to the negatives. Make of it what you will. If you’re open minded and want to come to a great place w awesome food and staff. Eggplant with ginger sauce was hands down one of the best we’ve had thus far on our journey through Vietnam along with the calamari. Anyone who shows up and has anything bad to say will say that about every place they stay. We loved it and would tell everyone to check it out for a night or two! Oh and fair warning about the monkeys, do not pretend they are cute. They will take your things and drink your beer!
Cons: There is some leftover construction current or old. But it didn’t bug us at all.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was fine. Location was interesting but difficult and expensive to get to.

7.0 Good
Pros: The views were the best part of the trip.
Cons: Our first morning at the property was lovely, there was a buffet breakfast which my partner and I had been looking forward to. On our second morning we eagerly arrived for the Buffett to find there wasn't one. The waiter informed us that there would be no buffet as there were only 6 guests. Which we didn't mind, expect that we had no choice in our meal and we were served a very disappointing egg sandwich. There was no buffet on our third morning either. On our last night, the peaceful nature of the property was disturbed as the staff had a party and played loud music, keeping my partner up until past midnight.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Staff misinformed us that cat Ba Island was in a shut down mode and asked to cancel our booking. While there was no such thing at Cat Ba. When we pressurised him, he let us check in. We also have to pay 100,000 dong more for the view. The previous room doesn’t have geyser. Very inconveniently they didn’t accept card payment. We have to pay cash only.

4.0 Okay
Pros: The guys running it were very sweet.
Cons: The whole place just felt properly run down. It needs a bit of a revamp. I get the concept but I also feel that things need to be of a certain standard. We had someone ranting in the early hours. Someones mobile alarm went off and they didn't mute it for ages. Then the camp plays music in the main social area from 9am so no chance of a lie in. It felt welcoming but at the same time it felt like a group had been there for ages and they were content keeping it that way.
7.5 Good
Pros: Amazing communal area (especially when it’s warm)
Cons: Not that clean, but still livable

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The woman at reception is fantastic - super friendly and very helpful. The hotel was exceptionally clean and given that it was low season we were upgraded to a sea facing roomwith a balcony which was great.
Cons: The only downside is the volume of music pumping from clubs floating in the Harbour across from our room. It’s tragic that such a magnificent place that could be enjoyed by all is now being branded as cheap party/backpacker jaunt that dominates the entire stretch. I’m all in for a good party but not when I need sleep at 2am
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was situated in a great location and had really friendly staff. ‘Hoi An’ the manager was especially lovely and acted quickly to correct any issues we had. The room was spacious and beds comfortable.
Cons: The shower head was quite narrow but that is standard of Vietnamese showers.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We live in Haiphong and visit Cat Ba often. This is the hotel we choose to stay in because of location, value for money, and our positive experiences with the staff. We like it here. In our opinion it is the best location in Cat Ba Town.
Cons: We prefer this location, but others might like to be closer to the beach. Our last stay the breakfast waiter was kind of grumpy. We found that a bit unusual for Vietnam where most service staff that we've encountered are incredibly pleasant.
7.5 Good
Pros: Central location along the waterfront
Cons: Some how cold feeling through the place Lack of warmth No one in the reception present most of the time. Found out through staff that it was run by government.
6.3 Good
Pros: The receptionist and the lady taking care of the motorbikes is very polite and nice. The room comes with a balcony overlooking the bay. The breakfast is nice and big portion. It's just at the edge of the main strip where the happening are. Walking distance to the Hydrofoil Pier. The bike rental from the hotel is very cheap. Just 80,000 VND for morning to 7pm. They require you to leave your passport with the reception upon check in and only upon check out you make payment. Payment can be in cash or Credit Card. Lovely place. With nice staffs. We will be back.
Cons: The bathroom lights is too dim. The tap water at the basin is a bit salty. The pillow is very hard. The aircon always off itself at 3am. Then you have to get up and restart it again.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: friendly staff and convenient location . habour view and a balcony

Hung Long Harbour Hotel - Cat Ba - Building

7.3 Good (52 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Hai Phong (Cat Hai), Hung Long Harbour Hotel is within a 5-minute drive of Cat Co Beach and Tung Thu Beach. Featured amenities include a computer station, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Cons: The yard is too hot.
7.9 Good
Pros: I did like the location. Just far enough away from the real hub of the the town, but close enough to walk anywhere.
Cons: The beds were very hard. I woke up both mornings with my hands asleep. Staff could not understand much English, but we managed. Within the town, the vibe was good, and travel arrangements back to Haphong were easy and reliable. Cat Ba is not easy to get out to, nor is it easy to leave. Just trust the arrangements.
4.2 Okay
Pros: The location is very good our room had excellent views of the bay. Easy access to Cat Ba town.
Cons: Everything else. Old broken furniture. Badly fitting windows allowing noise. No shower cubicle, we had to crouch under the sink to use the shower so as not to flood the bathroom. No safe in room. Shabby badly maintained communal areas. Only edible food for Westerners at breakfast was eggs. Staff were uncommunicative, sheltering behind the reception desk wrapped up in jackets. I didn't expect a lot as Cat Ba is a developing resort, however we were very disappointed. There is a much nicer small bar/restaurant/bungalows about 3 mins away which was less than half the price. We asked to see the rooms and they were lovely plus there was a pool. A real 'Oasis'. Most of all we were very disgusted with our airport pick up. We paid $60.00 and were told we would have the best driver on Cat Ba who spoke English. Instead we were dumped at the ferry, with our cases. We got on the ferry not knowing what was happening. There was a small car waiting at the other side which drove us to the hotel. Compared with the excellent transfers we had during the rest of our travels around Vietnam this was extremely expensive. We paid about £45 for a lovely driver from Hue taking in all the sights on the way. We also got a bus who picked us up from the Hotel and took us to our hotel in Tam Coc a 4 hour drive for £12.00 each. The coach took us across on the ferry. I had thought this hotel was probably the best choice but it's never worth the $40.00 per night that we paid.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Balconies
Cons: Bed was horrible !!! Breakfast no coment really really basic. Not recommended at all
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Hung Long is just off the busy strip and has lovely views of the harbour. Breakfast was very good. Room was spacious and very nice. Staff were great. We had one meal in the restaurant which was very good. The hotel itself was quiet (although you can't escape the music from the floating restaurants anywhere in Cat Ba town).
Cons: Had a balcony which was great but a couple of chairs would be nice.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location was perfect
Cons: Bathroom style was different

3.7 Mediocre
Pros: The location is fine, thought it’s in a tiny town so really the only way to be worse would be farther away from the water. Adjoining restaurant staff were nice
Cons: There were literally 4 different types of hair in one floor tile area. The bed was very hard with the springs poking through and the sheets were dirty. The room did not smell well and all the amenities were very old.

Cat Ba Garden House - Cat Ba - Bedroom

9.1 Excellent (1 reviews)
9.1 Excellent
Pros: We payed about $5 per night in low season, and the staff here were excellent. Breakfast was included and the tour options offered here were by-far the cheapest in town. We had a really nice time here.
Cons: The dogs next door sometimes bark at odd hours. On top of that the beds themselves could use a small foam-topper or something just to make them a bit softer. Very springy otherwise. Internet was good, but network settings need to be updated as sometimes it would kick you off for no reason.

This hotel has facilities measuring 646 square feet (60 square meters), including a meeting room. Free valet parking is available onsite.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The room was spacious. The breakfast was great. No buffet or pre-made foods. The pho was better than the nearby restaurants we had. Got juice, coffee and warm french bread.
Cons: We had just body towels, no face or hand towels. No safe (which I overlooked when booking). The bed was really firm.
6.3 Good
Pros: Staff was accommodating, breakfast was good and quick service. Good location. Quick and easy check in and check out. Bathroom had an enclosed shower.
Cons: Couldn’t believe it was rated so high. Disappointed In property overall. Dated and well worn. While I appreciate conservation, hallways were dark and eerie. Since hardly any guests, we could have been put in a room with a view other than the roof of neighboring property. No shelving to place shower items in shower, difficult to get into shower since door swings in to the shower . Room not very clean as indicated from our personal cleaning, sanitizing wipes were brown from handles. Beds were very hard. Stayed 4 nights in Cat Ba, only 1 at Princes Hotel. Loud karaoke until late at night.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food and drinks were really good and the common areas were very nice! As well it is really close to a nice beach
4.6 Okay
Pros: Lots of hot water, room was clean, location was close to the main strip in Cat Ba
Cons: Hotel was deserted, only a few guests, so made for a very creepy atmosphere with lights turned off throughout the hotel. Very noisy room- due to poorly sealed windows, we heard street noise ALL night long. The hallways are vast and echo, so as the few guests returned to their rooms each night their conversation and foot steps echoed through out the nearly vacant hotel. And to add insult to injury, they put us in a room directly below the breakfast room, so every morning at about 05:30 we heard the staff setting up for breakfast, moving chairs, yelling. The hotel only had about 4-5 guests, so why put us in this lousy room? So frustrating when all you really want from a hotel is a good nights sleep- NOT HAPPENING HERE! The wifi was so weak it did not reach the guest rooms. Even in the large lobby the wifi was so poor all the staff huddled in a certain area to get coverage. So we joined them there to get our messages home. The staff was completely aloof. Sat in the lobby smoking and playing cards. When it was time to check out they had trouble with the credit card machine not being charged, then having to find a cord to plug it in, then reaching the machine to the desk so we could use it- a fiasco! Absolutely terrible experience at this hotel. The price was somewhat high for the area and season. I’m sure there are way better choices in Cat Ba. Definitely would not recommend this hotel.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The location is the only positive.
Cons: This is a large empty hotel with skeleton staff. There is no atmosphere, it was eerie and we didn’t feel very safe. The receptionist tried to keep our passports. The “Mountain View” was mainly building materials and other hotel roofs. The bathroom was not clean and there was no hot water (despite being possibly the only guests in this 7 floor accommodation). Pillows were stained yellow and all bedding smelled stale and dusty. We recommend you cross reference other travel review websites because we found the review and score on this site to be extremely different to our experience. We only checked other websites once we were staying there and found the reviews and scores were unanimously low.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: They arranged us a great Cat Ba and Lan Ha Bay one day trip, and also a bus to Ninh Binh: both was much cheaper than other options! Friendly staff, great scooters for rental! And the best value for money!

Pros: How it was away from everything yet easy to access haylong bay and all around. The food at the bungalows was amazing. Im surprised by reviewers saying food was not value for money. We had lots of freah and tasty Vietnamese food every night (we stayed 4 nights). Breakfast was simple pancakes but no less tasty. They arranged a fantastic private kayaking trip and all our onward journey connections. Great place to stay
Cons: Nothing really... for what it was it was absolutely great. Lots of tours come to the island during the day so the village can be a little busy but thats fine.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: If you want a quiet relaxing place to chill with wonderful views then this is the place to go. Small simple bungalows in a lovely garden where they grow their own veg.
Cons: Would have liked kettle in room but owners very happy to give flask of hot water
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful and friendly staff. The manager went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. We booked tours and transfers via him and can warmly recommend doing so. Location is great and we ate dinner there twice, which was also very good and different both nights.
4.6 Okay
Cons: This place needs a very good clean and the rooms need some maintenance. We were the only people staying there so it did not have the vibe that we were looking for.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great stay in peaceful location away from Cat Ba town. Whisper bungalow is situated right by the Cat Ba National Park making it a perfect location to explore; the boat ride over was amazing to start with! Whilst I was there I went on a great boat trip swimming and kayaking around Lan ha bay. Cuong the owner was really welcoming and helpful - organising the boat trip and transport from the hotel. The food there was amazing - some of the best I’ve had in Vietnam. I’d definitely recommend staying here if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Cat Ba town.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great experience , clean , good dinner and breakfast, very quite. The host was generous and arranged us the way to Hanoi
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Stayed there for two nights. Location was amazing. Very quiet, in the middle of nature, surrounded by mountains. Lot's of butterflies. The bungalows are simple, but cozy and clean - better than expected. Mosquito net was provided. Hike to the viewpoint is highly recommend (~2km from the resort). Had one of the best views ever. The owner is great. He helped us whenever it was needed. He even hiked to the viewpoint with us after he couldn't find an english speaking guide. He also helped us organizing our trip to ninh binh, which worked perfectly. Although there is not really a choice the food, cooked by the owner's wife, was fantastic.
Cons: The door and the window didn't close completely, so there were slits. Because of that there might be some insects in the room. Didn't bother us too much, because a mosquito net was provided - and we had our protecting lizards. However, we saw other bungalows without this problem.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: A lovely quiet place to relax. Great food which was different each evening. The host was really helpful in arranging transfers, boat trips etc.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: Staff misinformed us that cat Ba Island was in a shut down mode and asked to cancel our booking. While there was no such thing at Cat Ba. When we pressurised him, he let us check in. We also have to pay 100,000 dong more for the view. The previous room doesn’t have geyser. Very inconveniently they didn’t accept card payment. We have to pay cash only.

Pros: A lovely central hotel with a great view of the bay. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room were kept very clean every day by the cleaner. I was very happy with my stay here
Cons: Can be noisy at night. To have a view of he bay also means a room beside the road. In saying this I was also staying during tet so a lot was going on.

Cons: All good.

7.0 Good
Pros: You have your own private beach! Played volley ball with the staff. It was chill. Great place to wind down.
Cons: The accomodation is overpriced for what it is
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Quietness. Cute and simple. The bartender was awesome! Thanks Kio! The golden retriever on the island is adorable. “Map.” People have mixed reviews about this place. Don’t listen to the negatives. Make of it what you will. If you’re open minded and want to come to a great place w awesome food and staff. Eggplant with ginger sauce was hands down one of the best we’ve had thus far on our journey through Vietnam along with the calamari. Anyone who shows up and has anything bad to say will say that about every place they stay. We loved it and would tell everyone to check it out for a night or two! Oh and fair warning about the monkeys, do not pretend they are cute. They will take your things and drink your beer!
Cons: There is some leftover construction current or old. But it didn’t bug us at all.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was fine. Location was interesting but difficult and expensive to get to.

10.0 Excellent

7.0 Good
Pros: The views were the best part of the trip.
Cons: Our first morning at the property was lovely, there was a buffet breakfast which my partner and I had been looking forward to. On our second morning we eagerly arrived for the Buffett to find there wasn't one. The waiter informed us that there would be no buffet as there were only 6 guests. Which we didn't mind, expect that we had no choice in our meal and we were served a very disappointing egg sandwich. There was no buffet on our third morning either. On our last night, the peaceful nature of the property was disturbed as the staff had a party and played loud music, keeping my partner up until past midnight.
