We toured Cuc Phuong National Park and the endangered primate rescue center on a very reasonably priced tour offered by the Long Hotel that included pickup at our hotel, transportation to both sites, a trail guide in the park, and a delicious and plentiful lunch and ample bottled water. Our guide, Duan, was knowledgeable about the area and able to... More

At first glance the hotel looked nice. But the dorm room was smelling really bad all the time (sewer smell) The staff was not very friendly and are only after your money with overpriced food, scooters and bus tickets. If you need to book anything go to the lady next door to the dorm, much cheaper and much more friendly!... More

Both Western as a "simple" Vietnamese Pho are utterly disgusting. Dont let the customers inside or the images on the menu fool you. The food looksnothing like it! We had fried shrimps (they were teenie tiny), noodle soup and a burger (what was I thinking yes I know). The soup had no flavour, as did the shrimp. The burger was... More

Overall the place is average. Food is very expensive, but if you stay there you get a discount so it's affordable. But the bathroom smelled horrible, I think it came out of the sewers. So the dorm smelled awful as well. Plus the lockers are very bad. If you go there, avoid the upper dorm.

So I just want to say that we didn't stay in the hotel or the hostel across the road which is owned by the same person. Anyways the lying began when our bus dropped us off there, and the staff kept telling us we were in Ninh Binh when we asked if we were in Tam Coc or Ninh Binh.... More

Ninh binh is a bit of a ghost town so we planned to stay right near the tam coc river because that's why we went there! The hotel was fine but we felt quite shut off from the world when we were in our rooms. Rented motorbikes and drove around ninh binh which was good and also through tam coc... More

We planned to stay for 3 nights and ended up staying for 2 weeks. We could not have been happier with our time there. The owner Doan and her husband Anh, were the perfect hosts, generous and a pleasure to deal with. After 2 nights in a 6th floor room we were given an upgrade to a very large room... More

I spent 2 nights in the hotel even I didn't want to stay in Tam Coc but Ninh Binh. They probably bribe the bus drivers who drop people in Tam Coc saying it is Ninh Binh. Buses arrive early in the morning so passengers are not able to recognize the place. They offer good price for a room but still... More
