This was the best place we have stayed in Vietnam and we stayed in 18 hotels in a month!! We chose this hotel because of its location and style and it met our expectations, a very nice management team and very helpful indeed. The rooms are all very spacious and full of luxury and the smells in the rooms are... More

This hotel strikes me as a brave venture. The Ninh Binh area provides limited competition, but also (being still a little off the beaten touristic track) a limited through-flow of potential guests, although it makes a good third destination in North Vietnam after Hanoi and Halong Bay for those who do not want to head north to Sapa. The weather... More

We loved our room. It was large and the beds were super comfortable! After 25 days in Vietnam lodging, the Emeralda beds ranked up there in the top 3. We took another reviewer's advice and asked for a room near the main lobby and breakfast buildings to avoid too many long walks. We were still far enough away to have... More

Our family with young teens was just here one night and were very satisfied. Dinner at the organic restaurant was one of the tastiest and stylish of the 5D/4N stay in Hanoi/Ninh Binh/ Halong Bay. Surprisingly large menu for both dinner and breakfast. I compare this with our similar one night stay in a similar hotel in Inle Lake, Myanmar,... More

Having spent a few days in Hanoi we booked this hotel as it is located in a beautiful and quiet part of Vietnam. From the second we arrived to the minute we left we were treated like royalty by every member of staff. Customer service is clearly very important in this hotel which clearly shows. Our room was beautiful and... More

I heard and was told good things about Emeralda Ninh Binh, and so was excited to come with colleagues on an official trip, with a thought would bring my family there for a vacation. To my disappointment, the room was full of moldy smell, right when I entered the room, particularly the beddings, as if it was an old store... More

This resort is a calm and very countryside resort - typically Vietnamese if you want to enjoy the real VN style. It is quite near of Trang An grottoes - a must see magical site, very crowded at grotto though, but worth every pennies. Do give tip to the boat worker - 3 hours trip ! $10 or more would... More
