We arrived in Cat Ba island in the afternoon after taking 3 buses and a boat from Hanoi (just over a 4 hour trip), not too bad of a journey. The island was very quiet and not many people around. Our hotel was a short 5 minute walk uphill from the fishing pier.
The hotel was quite dated but very adequate for what we had paid and the staff …
Woke up at around 10:00 which was nice to have a bit of a lie in! We decided that we were going to go kayaking so we headed out and looked for the best trip.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCatba Palace Hotel Cat Ba
The hotel was fairly dated but clean and the rooms not massive but big enough. Ok hotel- you get what you pay for. Staff very friendly. Short walk up a hill from the harbour (not even 5 mins away). If went again would probably choose a hotel on the seafront though overlooking the harbour.
