Location was good. But the French people in the hotel were not friendly and pretty arrogant. I was using the computer at the lobby and one of the old french lady with the most snobbish attitude would ask, "do you live here"? I replied yes I did. Then she went on to say, the owner (lady by the name of... More

A french couple on the bus introduced us to Chez Loan. We were impressed by the location, right next to Tam Coc and the other caves, mountains and boat trips dotted around. Room was nice, there are free bikes and it was definitely a much better experience than staying in Ninh Binh town which is 6-7 km away. We really... More

We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Loan made us feel that we were part of the family. The location is in the middle of the countryside, in rural Vietnam. The food served was tasty, beautifully presented and affordable. Tam Coc is only 1 km away and there are many nice sites to see within 30 km.... More

We had the top floor family room for the 5 of us ; this room has been build afterwards on top of the small hostel and it was rather hot inside when we arrived. The airco functioned very well so cooled it off at night. Bathroom is rather small for 5. Food downstairs is served on the terrace and was... More

Chez Loan has very good comments on Trip Advisor and different tourism guides so we booked at her place, luckily for us only for 1 night. Mrs Loan was very friendly by mail for the reservation but all along our 2 days/1 night stay, she has been extremely unpleasant and rude, which came as a very big surprise for us... More

We really enjoyed our time at Chez Loan. The rooms were big & warm. The restaurant area was a bit cold though. I notice some people have complained that they don't speak English only French. We don't speak French but it wasn't really a problem. Our 2 children 8 & 6 years enjoyed it too. We ate the Vietnamese Hot... More

Chez Loan is a family run business where you will quickly feel at ease. Miss Loan is a warm person, always ready to make her customers happy (she offered a bag of sticky rice, my favorite breakfast dish, before I left). Location is very convenient to walk or ride around the beautiful region of Tam Coc. Food is a bit... More

We stayed at Chez Loan as part of a 4 night tour to Tam Coc and Mai Chau organized by Oriental Bridge travel. Like all the hotels we stayed at with Oriental Bridge, we were given their best room, which was clean and had a great view of the valley. We luckily speak French, as nobody speaks English here, though... More

This place is out of the way and kind of hard to get to, but that's what makes it worth the effort. We spent a few lazy days cycling around Tam Coc and waving at the locals in the rice fields. Ask Loan for her recommendations and splurge on the food - it's pricey for Vietnam but we didn't find... More

Located in Cam Tho, the hostel is a very short bike ride from some extremely picturesque locations, and the bikes are included. Much quieter than Ninh Binh and definitely quieter than Hanoi. We found that the price of her food was a bit high for Vietnam (a few bucks a plate), but extremely tasty (if you're a vegetarian, try the... More
