Paid a little extra for the top floor room with balcony which was worth it for the light and the view. breakfast was good value for 50,000 VND but nothing special. Wi fi problems and water problems on occasions but maybe this is common in Ninh Binh. Hired a motorbike for 2 days at $10/day which I thought was a... More

Dear guests, we are pleased to hear that you had a good time in Ninh Binh. That doesn't come as a surprise as we already enjoyed your cheerful mood. Thus we are really saddened by some of your comments which we fail to understand. While you were here, you did not mention anything to us about internet and water problems.... More

It's a 15 min walk here from either the train/bus station - in a nice, quiet residential street (just down the road from the market). Mega portions for tea (dinner) and a great breakfast. The motorbike trip they organised for us (trip one in thw brochure plus Hung Mua) wasa highlight in our trip in Vietnam so far. Definitely choose... More

They have lots of interesting tours but they don't push you. They also rent motorbikes for 10$. Staff really nice and good... More

This hotel deserves 12 out of 10 points. Our room was clean and comfortable and our room even had a private balcony. And also the shared balcony with hammocks is nice. The food was really good and the portions large. The organization of tours, bicycles etc is cheap, easy and reliable. Last but not least the great family who runs... More

We had such a great 4 night stay at Kim lien guesthouse. It exceeded all expectations and really felt like a vietnamese family guesthouse with western comforts! The guesthouse is run solely by the owner, with a little help from her children. She takes bookings, cleans, cooks, gives tour advice, does your laundry (40,000dong/kg) and makes you feel very welcome... More

Nice place to stay in Ninh Binh. Kim is really friendly and helpful! The banana pancakes for breakfast, served with fresh fruit salad and a drink was delicious. Double room was very clean and spacious, with air con and a fan. The shower was the best one I've had in a while, water was so hot! The rest of the... More

We love this guest house! We stayed 3 nights at the end of a one-month trip through Vietnam and had the best time. Kim Lien and her husband Rudy are really nice and helpful.
