      Friendly staff and nice hotel”

      Clean rooms, new bathrooms, comfortable beds

      the fantasea exceeded our expectations. we spent two nights at the hotel while exploring cat ba island and were happy with our choice. the room was spacious and the bathroom was clean (although we're still confused why the shower train was outside the shower...interesting design). there is currently construction going on next door, which is unfortunate, because they start working pretty early in the morning. also, if your room is on one of the bottom floors your balcony will likely have a view of the wall of the building next door...not much the fantasea owners can do about it though, i suppose. i appreciated the effort the staff put into our stay - they served us cake when we arrived and brought fresh pineapple to our room the second night. they also arranged for us to rent motorbikes for the day to head up into the national park (highly recommended). the only blemish on their service record was the lengthy turnaround for a friend's laundry. our friend gave them a bag of laundry, which they promised to deliver the next morning by 9am. they did not. actually, it took them an additional 24 hours to get the laundry back to him right before we left. i guess the hotel doesn't have a dryer, so they hang dry guests laundry, which is obviously a problem when it rains on cat ba island. nevertheless, i'd still recommend the hotel.

      I was staying on cat ba for a week and needed good Internet. I was recommended cat ba palace by another hostel. Rooms were newly renovated. They had hot water. Private bathrooms. Clean. Breakfast was included. Staff was very nice and helpful. They would leave some water in the room each day. You could rent a scooter to go around the island. You could ask for a bus to pick you up at the hotel to go to Hanoi. Internet was great. The building itself doesn't have any extra stuff but I didn't need anything extra personally. For the price tag, this place is a steal. I would definitely stay again.

      I believe this is one of the best hotels in Cat Ba. The staffs were amazingly friendly and they had helped us a lot. We had some meals in the hotel, the price was 150,000 VND per person.The food was great and the chefs were so nice. The rooms were clean and nice. If there is one thing I must complaint then it would be the wifi connection was a little bit weak, rather than that it was totally fine. If we had the chance to come back again, Catba Palace would definitely be our choice.

      Can’t fault a thing! ”

      From the get go nothing but positive and warm welcomes from the staff - even scored a cheeky upgrade which never happens! Spacious and spotless room with comfy bed. Fast wifi if you’re bothered. Elevator which is a big treat when you’re on the 6th floor and last but not least a great choice of breakfast, fresh fruit and tea/coffee! The whole stay was lovely, located well in Cat Ba easy to get to everything! On my last night however I fell quite ill and stirred myself up in quite a panic - this was when the gentleman(maybe owner I think) on reception really went above and beyond in helping from fresh ginger tea in the morning, then followed up with another check up, was more than hospitable when I woke him in the lobby at 4am, offered us packed lunches - just his whole being towards me was so comforting and made me feel calmer The hotel is wonderful and a steal for what you pay, give the guys here a shot and you won’t be disappointed. Thank you for everything Cat Ba Palace :)

      As a couple, we still felt like we saved some money but had a really comfortable stay in Cat Ba, as opposed to the many budget hostels on the island. Didn't arrange any tours or affordable transport (which we found easily elsewhere) but had a great breakfast menu and were happy to arrange a second-night at the same price very last minute!

      Nice and spacious rooms.”

      I stayed in a room alone but it could actually accommodate 3 people. It was big and clean. The staff was nice and gave me an early check in. The food at the restaurant is over priced but so is everything in Cat Ba Island. I would avoid going on the weekends when rates are double the normal price.

      Friendly staff

      was a nice hotel that had all the amenities. staff were very friendly, however the cleaning staff had s habit of walking into your room when you were still there. i got the impression that there were cheaper hotels for pretty much the same type of room in cat ba, however if you don't want the hassle of just walking into a hotel this is a good choice

      Hotel piacevole”

      Vicinanza al centro

      A cat ba bastano due giorni: uno per visitare la Baia di Halong e l'altro per vedere il parco nazionale. L'hotel è pulito, in zona centrale. Tuttavia il personale non sa bene l'inglese. Cat ba è un'isola in cui c'è molto turismo vietnamita per cui non è così facile trovare posticini occidentali dove si mangia "al pulito".

      Very good”

      The hotel is located in a side street of Cat Ba, but still central. The staff was friendly and helpful. I he breakfast offered Vietnamese as well as continental alternatives. The room was big and clean. The bed was pretty hard.

      A simple place, but OK”

      Price, location, room size

      This is a basic hotel that gets a mix of Vietnamese weekend tourists and Westerners making a one-night stop on their Halong cruise. We used the hotel as a base to explore Cat Ba. It is good value and a safe bet, but is nothing fancy. Note that the Google.map.location of the hotel is.incorrect. It is about 300m north of the strip.
