Rustic but clean with basic amenities, value at the price for a single traveler. The breakfast and dining space is totally new, open to beautiful green rice fields. Leaving Ninh Binh at 7a.m. for bus to Halong Bay, I still had chance to eat a simple buffet with crepes, petit four, croissant with marmalade, condensed milk and some juices. The... More

We actually rode bikes after a scenic boat ride to this lovely guest house. Accommodations were comfortable and relaxing after a long day exploring the Vietnamese country side. The a/c was not working in the first room we were assigned and they quickly moved us to another room where the A/C was working. Accommodations are rustic but comfortable, and I... More

Because there were 4 of us they offered us one of the bungalows for $50 between us which was amazing as the... More

I wouldn't call it a hidden gem but the place has been recently refurbished and the rooms are vast and cheap. We stayed in one of the new bungalows. The Restaurant was being renovated so there wasn't really any dining area as such. We decided to stay for dinner but it was a mistake. The food was blend and the... More

We didn't stay here although we've eaten twice in the restaurant in two days, the food was delicious and the staff are lovely as well. Reasonably priced and a nice atmosphere. The caramelised pork was delicious, as are the sweet potato chips

Chez Loan is a nice and not very expensive Hotel near ninh binh not far from the pagodas and grottes. The breakfast was good, so was the dinner we had there. The reason why I cannot give chez loan more than 3 points is that the boss obviously prefers French speaking guests and acts in an almost flirty way with... More

The hotel is nice, a bit away from the main jetty in Tam Coc, has clean and comfortable rooms (2pax from 14 USD to 35 USD) and a peaceful common area / restaurant with a great view on the mountains. But what makes you feel at home is Loan and her family who are always smiling and try to help... More

I didn't actually stay in the hotel as I was staying in the center of Tam Coc. Nevertheless I went there to enjoy's the restaurant area. I was delighted by the meal and by my host. Indeed Loan is a very welcoming host and I had a very nice dinner there. I can recommend you the deep fried crabs which... More

We stayed in this beautiful hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. We are French Canadians and Loan is a true francophile who speaks French really well. I don't know if she's comfortable in English though... The room was really nice and comfy, on the first floor, for 18$ US per night. Hot shower and TV (although the TV abandoned... More

Nice, quiet hotel. Nothing all too special. The rooms are nice and clean. The shower was nice. You can get some bicycles for free and the owners are really nice people. The location is perfect. To the left you can bike into the little village Tam Coc and to the boat trips and some pagodas. And to the right you... More
