From the moment we were whisked away by motorbike from where the bus dropped us off we had such a pleasant stay here at Cat Ba Central Homestay. Located away from the main hub of town (which is ideal) it's nice and quiet but still walk able to the town center. The owner organised everything for us - transfers from Hanoi, scooter hire, day trip tour by boat and transfers to Haiphong, we didn't have to think about a thing! We also enjoyed a delicious dinner with other guests one evening which was great. You really feel at home here - Highly recommended!

We stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is not in the center of the action, which is a plus for us (we look for quiet hotels); but it is one block away from a major road and it is easy to rent a motorbike to explore the island. The owner is always there to lend a hand and can make all the reservations for tours, if you need to. He designed the hotel and each room has a different decoration. Super clean, includes breakfast, AC in every room.

Stayed here for 2 nights The owner collected us from town where the Cat Ba Express dropped us off He made 2 trips on his moped to collect my wife and then myself He was the perfect host Organised the perfect day trip around LAN Ha Bay & Halong Bay Within walking distance of Cat Ba Town for evening meals and drinks Only 40000 dong back up the hill in a taxi when we were too tired to walk A stiff climb up to Cannon Fort but doable if you take it steady, about 40 min walk from Homestay Rooms are clean and comfortable And because it’s down a side street it’s quiet. Would recommend as a good place to stay at very reasonable price

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Cat Ba Central Homestay and had an amazing time. The hosts, Truong and his wife were very sweet and helpful. and they arranged a delicious home cooked meal for all the guests to enjoy. The island and the bay is gorgeous and we had an incredible experience.

Where to begin? The place is new. Everything is nice. The owner Truong and his wife go out of their way to accommodate. He picked us up at the bus drop off. It was my birthday and I came back to the room to find a bouquet of flowers and a card. Absolutely amazing. It is located close to the town for eating and walking around. They have all the information you need and can organize everything and trust the good price. The roof is nice to see a view of mountains. I can easily recommend Cat Ba Central Homestay.
