We stayed here for two nights. It was a nice, quiet and small guesthouse. But it was very basic. No refrigirator on the room and an AC which could nog provide a cool room as we wished for. But the prices are not high so do not expect a lot. It was rather far walking to the town and we... More

Dear guests, thanks for writing a review. However, we are a little saddened by your hard verdict that contradicts the majority of our other reviews. They do testify we offer something special when comparing us to other hotels in our category. When reading your other contributions, we noticed that you frequented hotels in Vietnam with room rates of $50. Perhaps... More

I stayed at Kim Lien's guest house for two days. The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. They wanted to help me with whatever I needed and even arranged a free motobike drive to the train station when I was late. So nice!! The people who run this guest house are really friendly. One thing: because it was low season... More

Dear Irene, thanks for your review. We appreciate your feedback. However there are some misunderstandings which led to incorrect conclusions. I recall you were sitting in the lobby wet with perspiration telling me that the hot and humid weather was something unexpected. True, the humidity (near 100%) affected everyone and could not be escaped easily. Except inside our rooms. Perhaps... More

This guesthouse has really comfortable beds--I think they're memory foam mattresses! Which is a great treat for a backpacker! Kim and her partner are very kind and upgraded our room for free. The breakfast is delicious! Our one night stay here was just what the doctor ordered! Thanks Kim Lien!

We stayed at Kim Lien's Guest House for 4 nights / 5 days and it served as our base for exploring the surrounding attractions as well as Ninh Binh itself. Our travel to NB by private car and our return to Hanoi by train were all well organised by Crossing Vietnam in Hanoi, and these were an adventure in themselves.... More

Dear Ross and Kerry, Your review in support of Liên's guest house is highly appreciated. We noticed a mindful observation regarding Liên's passion and pride. Since you stayed five days with us, you got to know Liên and Ninh Binh a little better. Allow me (manager Rudy), to take this opportunity to further explain to the readers where your comment... More

I stayed for 2 night in the KimLien Guesshouse and It was excellent. It is in a quiet and small corner of the City and not very far from the train station so you could get into the taxi and pay around $1 to maximum of $2 for a drive to the guesshouse. The owners were very friendly, caring and... More

Although it is just a small guesthouse but I did really impressed with this place and definitely I'll come back. First is the surrounding, it is a small corner of Ninh Binh city, peaceful and calm lifestyle. It gave me a relaxed mood during my trip. Next, the staff is so nice.

Room was ok. We could leave our luggage after check out and we could also stille take a shower before we rook the nighttrain! We rented a motorbike from the hotel, but this was quite expensive (8 USD), normally you can rent a motorbike for half the price. Laundry was also more expensive than other services (40,000 vnd per kilo).... More
