In 2020 I did stay at City Bay Palace Hotel, located in Halong city but at a bit awkward location, being a bit out of the center. But with stunning view over the karsten mountains in Halong Bay. It is a brand new modern hotel with a bit small but comfortable rooms. City Bay Palace Hotel serves a good breakfast buffet and the restaurant also serves lunch & dinner (except with the TET festival). All together good value for the money, but location-wise not my cup of tea. Photo above is not my photo but is looks like the room I had. For more information see : City Bay Place Hotel.
