3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. We were given vouchers for breakfast which was included in the room rate (although after experiencing the breakfast on the first morning I decided it wasn't worth getting up for on our second morning!) and we were also given a discount voucher for a drink in the bar/restaurant opposite the...

The service here was terrible when we went to eat. They were rude and only wanted your money for their overpriced, overcooked, soggyness they were serving. The place was dirty with lots of flies and food on the floor. Would only go if I was desperate - which I was when I went in the first place.

We were told to be staying on a "simple, but clean, backpacker hostel" by our tour organizer. Hence, we had low expectations and were quite surprised to find ourselves in a quite OK room with functioning aircondition and a magnificent view at the 6th floor. I guess the rooms are cheaper at lower levels. Anyhow, there are terraces and sofas... More

They charge double the price for all types of transports. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone asking about buses or train information. Was asking about buses or trains to Hanoi, but they ended up quoting prices for private car. And train tickets cost $49 per person? That's insane. Moreover, the staffs are really rude.

This hotel is located across the street from the backpacker hostel. If 2 people are traveling together then you can get a "real" hotel room with private bath and a great view of the scenery for the same price as the backpacker hostel. Both the Long Hotel and the Backpacker place are owned by the same people. When you take... More

If you like us book a transfer from Cat Ba to Ninh Binh and found yourself outside the front of this hotel instead of Ninh Binh bus station, it is a massive scam! The manager will try and get you to stay here. After trying to hold our ground protesting to be taking to Ninh Binh in the mini van... More

We arranged transport from Cat Ba to Ninh Bin via Haiphong. After changing buses at Haiphong the driver was suppose to drive us to the bus station in Ninh Bin but stopped outside this hotel in Tam Coc. As soon as the bus pulled over they got on to invite us to book a tour through them. The bus driver... More

We arrived around 4.00 am with a sleeping bus outside this hotel (already fed up from a horrible bus ride), and the receptionist/manager told us "take your luggage over there and wait", so we did. After about an hour of waiting we grew impatiant and inquired about the reason for waiting, which he responded to with an attitude "hey, we're... More

As part of an organised tour with Stray Asia this hotel was pre booked for my boyfriend and I. So far every hotel has been decent but this one was by far the worst. Where to start... The receptionists are Rude/ignorant and really don't care about there guests. We left for the afternoon on a bike ride (the only thing... More
