Vu Binh Stilt House”

The reception was Not occupied at arrival and must be called by the caretaker. To climb up steep unsecure stairs and walkways are Not comfortable for elderly people. The rooms were ok, beds quite hard but clean. Nice Swimmingpool on top of the mountain. Interesting is the kind how the small huts on top near the Swimmingpool where build using plastic EURO palets.

Hill/Rooftop pool and bar with good food”

Definitely recommended for the above mentioned, especially for the rather (local) touristy Cat Ba island. Also has a small fridge stocked with common drinks, along with motorbike rentals and responsive management that spoke rather fluent English, making the stay very convenient. During my stay, there were some bugs in the room, and power was intermittent due to loose sockets but these seem like common issues on the island. (Except maybe for one real high end resort at the other side of Cat Ba town) These did not cause too much inconvenience though, devices charged just slightly slower, and some bites (as one expects in tropical areas) would happen during your sleep. Otherwise an excellent choice: Great view, great food, sufficient amenities, pleasant decor, and a rather private hotel unlike those in town. Definitely value for money.

In the nature”

If you go in low season (March in our case) it might be cold in the rooms. The walls between rooms are a bit thin and you can hear your neighbors talking. But generally, the hotel is located in a calm and picturesque place, you can reach the downtown by motorbike in 5 minutes. And the staff is very friendly and helpful :)

All you need is here! Be patient with local staff and you'll enjoy it!”

Although you need a motorbike to get anywhere, this location is very calm and relaxing - much better than the crowded Cat Ba town. The staff is nice, but little bit confused - had troubles taking care about too many customers. English knowledge was limited, but okay. Fried rice with shrimps in local restaurant is delicious, but sometimes they are run out of supplies... And try the mountain view above the hotel during the sunset - great place! The rule for motorbike rent is stupid, but it was quite easy to set it right. There are also possibilities of BBQ and trips; motorbike rental for a fair price... And if you can choose, take one of the rooms upstairs!

Traveler ”

I came on a recommendation. As a female traveling alone this accommodation did not suit me. I was starving after traveling all day. The guesthouse is 6 km from town. I was ripped off by the taxi. (Common in Vietnam ) and when I arrived I realized I am not near anything. I do not drive motorbike. . This is a very hilly and secluded area. There were only 4 other people staying here so there was no social atmosphere. The overnight guy spoke no english. I went to my room by 7pm. Hungry, sad ,and lonley. Checked our early. No refund. Nice place for couples maybe who want solitude.

It surpassed all of our hopes for a place to stay! The staff are so generous and kind. We really felt at home. All we did was show up, and it was like we were a part of the family. We've been travelling around SE Asia for about a month, and this has absolutely been our favorite place. Thank you Vu Binh!

Les photos sont particulièrement trompeuses. Les chambres sont spacieuses mais très bruyantes. Les "cases" sont toutes les unes sur les autres et la piscine (très petite) se mérite puisque qu'il faut monter un escalier pendant 10 minutes avant d'y accéder. L'hôtel est à plus de 3 km du centre.
