We booked 1 night at The long hotel in Tamcoc. The hotel itself is nice and located at good location. The room needs more care from staff from curtains to the chairs. TV did not function well maybe a reason of far from the city, we understood.
Staff was helpful to us, they served us with bycle service and we did a long road with bycle.
Landscape here was beautiful and we really loved it.

Room tip: Higher floor should be booked in advance

We had been booked to stay at Lang Viet Co but after viewing the small dark damp smelling cell like rooms I spat the dummy and said no way to my husband so we set off walking around Tam Coc for an alternative and found The Long Hotel and it saved the day!

Firstly the receptionist at The Long Hotel spoke good English and happily agreed to show us a room, she lead us up the stairs to room 500 on the 5th floor. It was light and bright, clean, air conditioned with a good bathroom. And only $30 a night and that included breakfast! we were thrilled.

It wasn't exactly a private balcony outside but as there were no rooms beyond ours no one walked round there so we felt like it was ours, so at night we could sit out on the very comfortable cane table and chairs and enjoy a drink overlooking the square and river. It was absolutely magic.

We asked about laundry and that was no problem and very cheap, done the next day. The restaurant downstairs which was part of the hotel was great for dinner and we went there both nights. It was also where they served breakfast.

Tam Coc is very much a day trip tourist stop so at night it is very quiet with just a handful of tourists and the locals. Being directly across from the wharf and the market was fun, the action starts quite early in the morning so plenty to watch. We particularly loved all the goats that wandered around the square which our guide explained to us came down from the mountain for some easy food and if they were not careful they ended up food themselves! We found the locals very friendly, there were some excellent souvenir shops (we bought some very good quality T-shirts very cheaply) where they happily took US dollars in payment.

We needed to change some money and our wonderful little receptionist at the Long Hotel offered to either call us a taxi to take us to Nimb Binh to go to a bank or change it at the hotel, the rate at the hotel was very good so we changed it with her.

We did two boat rides whilst there, the main one across from the hotel and then another lesser known route further down the main road that a guide took us to. Both were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Room tip: Choose and end room so you get the view, we had 500 and it was fab!

Stayed here for three days room 600 (?) had the view to die for but thats about it. If you are looking for a room whichever is a good location stay here. Didn't eat in the restaurant due to other reviews however checked out the breakfast which was free. Well didn't go back for the other two morning it must be the worse food I have ever seen ...do not eat here. The view is great watching the village and overall glad we stayed here in tam coc. Ninh binh was way to busy for us. Not what we were looking for. The morning we arrived from the train the taxi driver told us of a restaurant on the way in (4 doors up from the hotel ) LANG KHANH ...everything was great here coffee hired motorbikes got invited to the owners son wedding breakfast.went rowing with the aunt could not fault the place ...food was good and has fast wifi which is free .great to upload photos while having a drink and waiting for a meal .

We stayed here for one night, before doing a cycling and rowing boat day trip early the next day (to avoid the mass tourists). It seems to be the main hotel here, with fantastic views of the local market, lake filled with rowing boats and the beautiful mountains and rice paddies. We could hear the locals chattering in the streets and watched local boys play football until the sun went down, it was great to see another side to Vietnam after spending a few days in hectic Hanoi. Our room on floor five had panoramic views of the town and I would recommend asking for a room on this floor. Each room felt very spacious and had these huge windows where you almost felt like you were in a glass capsule! Everytime we wandered down the spiral staircases, lots of friends/families were just hanging out in their rooms with the doors wide open or on the stairs chattering to each other and you could get a glimpse into their private world which was very bizarre but kind of sweet. We ate at the hotel, but were the only ones eating and I'm not sure why it was so quiet. The food was OK, but the hotel does feel like it could do with a bit of an overhaul as it lacks a little warmth and care. Overall I think it was an interesting place to spend one night and seemed to be the best hotel for the location that we were in. I would recommend it for others looking to do something similar to us, who like slightly quirky hotels, rather than some luxurious chain hotel!

Room tip: Ask for one on the fifth floor

This hotel is in the best location to explore the Tam Coc area, being just across the road from the start of the Tam Coc boat trips. Tam Coc is about 10km from Ninh Binh. There's a local market also across the road with freshly cooked snacks and fresh produce. The local people were friendly. The hotel lent us free bicycles to explore the area, which was a highlight.
The whole hotel building seemed to be on a lean, ie. like Leaning Tower of Piza, and the entrance and public areas need a really good clean. There was brown liquid running down the walls behind the computer area. We spotted mice running along ledges in the kitchen where the clean crockery is kept. Mice are everywhere in Vietnam, but the mouse dirt hadn't been cleaned away for ages. The breakfast consisted of stale bread rolls and pre-cooked fritter things - all reheated in the microwave. The fresh fruit was good though. The bedrooms were spotless and there was lots of hot water.
Beware of the one day tour offered by the hotel at US$50 pp. Our guide was an employee from the hotel. While he tried really hard, he had very limited english and did not understand when asked questions. He also spent most of his time talking on his mobile cell phone. The tour lunch was just awful at the VERY run down and derelict Van Long Resort. The food was awful and the place was dirty. At this stage we decided to bale out of our tour, and headed back to Tam Coc to do the boat trip and then some cycling.
I'm not sure what the alternatives are for accommodation in this fantastic area. If only the The Long Hotel owners could give it a good clean up, it would be great value.
