Convenient but noisy
1/4 Street, Cat Ba Island (opposite the entrance to the pier) T: (031) 888 363
Slap bang in the heart of Cat Ba town, Noble House wins a spot in our listings for its location, not just directly opposite the pier but also above The Good Bar, which seems the place to be for foreign tourists right now.
It's also in the same building as Asia Outdoors, so whether you want an easy stagger home after a few too many draft LaRues or a day of rock climbing it'll fit the bill. That said, rooms are small, a bit over-priced and won't suit light sleepers, as the bar stays open late, but they're still pleasant enough.
