We can just recommend anyone this Guesthouse. It was very clean, the owners are extremely nice and helping, the breakfast was the best I had so far in Vietnam. Only thing you will have to get used to is that everything is a little bit more expensive there. We rented a scooter from the Guesthouse which was 8$ per day... More

What a great time did we have in Kim Lien guesthouse. Kim was absolutely great. We discovered the real Vietnam in Ninh Binh. We loved how full of energy Kim was. The room was clean and had a great balcony. We stayed for 4 days and rented a motorbike. I would absolutely recommend this guesthouse. Greetings Pieter en Daphne

We stayed with our family at Kim Liens guesthouse and felt very much at home. Kim Lien gave us good and honest advice about possible tours in the neighbourhood. We enjoyed exploring Ninh Binh (especially the beer garden just around tbe corner) and Trang An by bicycle.

Came into Ninh Binh late and Kim let me stay a night. Room was super clean, air con and fan was great, clean towels and bathroom and the bed was so comfortable! She helped me plan a day trip in Ninh Binh and provided maps, directions and everything I needed. Good food too, highly recommended. Quiet area too

For quiet,safe neighbourhood,obliging staff Kim Lien ticks the boxes. Ideally suits travellers on a budget,and solo backpackers looking for bed and breakfast. Very reasonable prices,so don't get carried away with expectations of grandeur.
