Thang Loi Hotel Cat Ba Island Reviews

Affordable with great view May 31, 2011
When I arrived in Cat Ba Island, I initially relied on the Lonely Planet guide book for advice on a cheap but decent hotel. The peeked inside a few hotels, and they were all pretty dreary. The ocean breezes and island climate take their toll on these places, and some are just not clean. I then found Thang Loi Hotel. I was shown a place on the 5th floor (quite a climb with no elevator). The room was clean, cable tv, comfy bed (like a memory foam mattress, not an old clunky spring bed) and cleaner than usual bathroom. The thing that really did it: the view, right out onto the harbor with a balcony to hag laundry and just sit and people watch at night. For $10 a night, it was a great price in Vietnam. And right next door is the hoang long bus ticket office where you can take your bags next door and be back off to Hanoi at the end of your trip.

The only disappointment was there was no hot water. Usually, there is, but apparently there was a problem with the heating system when I was there. Ask about it when you arrive and insist to check the water to ensure that there is still not a problem. For most Vietnamese, a hot shower is not a priority, so make sure it's been fixed.
