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. We very much appreciated their honest approach and we really enjoyed talking and laughing together. The trips they offer are of very good quality, worth your... More

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

The place is really nice decorated, clean and finished! It's the complete package. They gave us amazing advice, and we were so convinced by... 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
