The nicest owner ever!”

Cat Ba island is truly a gem. We're SO glad we decided to stay here and take a day tour of Lan Ha Bay instead of fighting with the crowds in Ha Long Bay. I can't wait to come back! We enjoyed staying in Phu Thanh Hotel because of its amazing view (make sure you get a seaview room. It's worth it!) and super good value! The air con is nice and cold...perfect for a hot day after you come back from the beach. By far, what I liked the most of the hotel is the helpful, kind owner, who is always there to greet you with a smile. One of the nicest and most helpful people I've met in Vietnam. Would definitely stay here again.

A Cat Ba Jewel ”

Phu Thanh is a great waterfront hotel & Thanh who runs it is fantastic. The hotel is very clean & good beds. Spring for a seaview room & you won't be sorry. We were on the 9th floor & had fabulous views. We also did a cruise & the hotel kept our luggage for us while we were gone. I also had to have a credit card shipped to me & it didn't arrive when it was supposed to. Thanh was kind enough to take me to the post office where he thankfully translated for me. Thank you! We ended up staying another 2 days but there's worse places than extending our time in Cat Ba! Hotel has an elevator as well. It's well situated on the main drag with lots of restaurants around it. The hotel will also get your laundry done for the going rate. Need a motorbike? No problem. Same with bus tickets, etc. Highly recommend Phu Thanh!

Great Choice in Cat Ba”

We had a great visit to Cat Ba island staying at Phu Thanh Hotel. The owner, Thanh, is a great host and made our stay wonderful. Booking the all-day Lan Ha Bay boat tour through him was a great deal (~$15USD) compared to the expensive packages offered in Hanoi. The hotel is a short walk from the boat dock with great views of the harbor from the Sea View rooms. It was easy to use the fast boat from Haiphong to get there. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to visit the Ha Long Bay area on a budget.

Nice little hotel with amazing seaview”

The hotel is perfectly located in Cat Ba town. Everything is in walking distance. Close to the beaches and easy to drive to the national park with motorbike. The hotel is run by a family. They are very nice and friendly and helpful at any time. Nice food. Good advises and help to organize e.g. Kajak trip if you want. We really recommend staying at this place.

Excellent Location and View right across the Bay”

I could not complain...for the price we got we had a room with an excellent view of the Bay... The hotel is right on the main promenade overlooking Cat Ba. Our shuttle bus from Tran Anh dropped us right infront of the hotel. There was a lift and the room was large and spacious. Only drawback is that they do not have a restaurant, but plenty around when you exit the main gate. The reception has a deserted look after 9 pm...but the staff are polite and helpful.

Really good place ”

Very nice see view room, with hot water, good AC. Everything was very clean. The owner is a very nice man, always smiling, he offers very good tours on the best price. The 1 day board tour was very relaxing and well organized. He helped us by arrangeing the trip back to Hanoi on a far cheaper price than we came tó Cat ba. I will stay here again. Only problem was that the wifi is weak upstairs. Downstairs ok.

Above average”

We have only ourselves to blame for choosing this hotel. We ignored the one star rating because of excellent ratings and higher prices in Cat Ba. Definitely a one star--broken, worn furniture, mouldy bathroom, poor wifi, weak staff. Fairly cheap for a reason. Nice view and fairly quiet end of street overlooking the bay.

Clean, great location, good food!”

This family run hotel was perfect. The owner and his family were very nice, easy going, and helpful. They rent motorbikes for a good price. The room was clean and the shower had plenty of hot water! Daily room service provided. Their pancakes were delicious, as was the rest of their food options. They provided laundry services for us and even returned the BND we accidentally left in our pocket-trustworthy! The owner speaks good English and some of the staff does too. They will arrange yours if you want. The boat,kayak,fishing village we took was incredible! This is a great place to stay. Everyone should stay with them!

I cannot recommend this place enough!! Trust me, you should treat yourself to a sea view room here...the view from the private balcony is beautiful beyond words. The staff is kind and helpful, the room was very clean and the AC worked well. I have no complaints whatsoever. While the price is slightly higher than others in the area, the value is so much more than I expected. And that view from the balcony is priceless...
