Owners were friendly and helpful, giving a map and explanation of sights in the area over a cup of tea at check in. Rented a motorbike from them and it was reasonable. Room was clean with air con and TV. Owners invited me to join for drinks one night but was exhausted so had to politely decline. Solid option in... More

Walk in rate was $10 for a single room. The staff were fairly friendly & helpful until I didn't eat in their restaurant & then seemed to go off me. I found the manager to be extremely disingenuous over the matter of an international phone call but that's another story. The room (303) looked OK but then I found there's... More

Some people sincerely enjoy their work and the family that runs the Kin Do spreads a warmth you can feel. We really enjoyed meeting and getting to know our hosts and found them to be helpful beyond the call of duty. The Kin Do is a great bargain and even though it may be aging a bit, it is clean,...

We arrived and were met with Vietnamese tea and bananas and a smile. The room was pleasant and nice and cold at all times, day or night. Very hot days and we didn't need to use the air con, just the fan moving air around and not even on us. In difference to what it says on Trip Adviser, it... More

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel so welcome and that continued until we checked out. A very sweet family run hotel in an incredibly underrated little town. Food and drink both good quality and very reasonably priced. We arranged tours for both full days we stayed - Cuc Phuong National Park one day and then a... More

My boyfriend and I arrived in Ninh Binh, and got free picked up from the train station to Kinh Do. The hotel is very clean, spacious and VERY affordable. There is AC, cable and good Wifi in the rooms. The food in their restaurant is very cheap and delicious (I think we ate almost every single meal here). The staff... More

Friendly and helpful staff. We booked really nice tours from here with guides who spoke perfect English and we could tailor our tour just the way we wanted it. The rooms are clean but really noisy because of the big road which runs by the hotel. The restaurant is cheap and has ok food. All and all, this hotel is... More

The rooms were huge and beautiful. Breakfast was good. Service was average. The location was great for seeing Trang An, Tam Coc, other attractions and for a staring point for treks. Not a lot of food choices around the hotel. We eventually found a great local restaurant close by that was very good and very cheap. No foreigners at all... More

Size of room and price is decent. Breakfast abysmal. Hotel just a bit strange with random comings and goings at massage parlour. We used it as a base, nothing more. There are probably better places for same price if you look around.
