Nam Phuong Motel

Our rating:

We loved this hotel, despite the beds being as hard as boards – that’s probably what they’re made of – and the pillows not much softer.

It’s got three things going for it. Firstly, the staff are courteous and friendly (not always the case in Cat Ba); secondly, the rooms are bright and spacious with fantastic views of the bay through floor to ceiling windows and thirdly, it’s cheap. If you need another reason, the back wall of the hotel is the cliff it rests up against. Seriously, go in and take a look for yourself. You walk up the first flight of interior stairs and there it is. We thought it was pretty cool.
