We had such a pleasant stay in Ninh Binh, in large part because our experience at the hotel was so nice.
We were picked up right on time at the train station by the hotel driver, who speaks little English but is very nice. The hotel is a quick drive away (walkable distance if you don't have a ton of luggage).
The only negative would be that our room was on the third floor, and there's no elevator, which wasn't a big deal for us but might be for people with physical limitations.
We went on one of the tours (the one day national park tour) which was excellent. We also rented a motorbike from the hotel for $10/day (they have a range to choose from, as well as bicycles for $2/day).
Our room was $20/night, with a private bathroom, A/C, fan, and a comfortable bed. (Our blanket smelled a little like B.O., but we didn't request another or anything, as it was hot enough that we didn't need one. There was a TV in the room, but we didn't end up turning it on.
The best surprise was the excellent food we ate at the hotel. We're vegan, so we're used to having a difficult time when traveling, but the staff was very accommodating. For breakfast, we ate pineapple and delicious noodle soup, and for dinner, we were given rice and several dishes (different each night) of tofu and vegetables for very reasonable prices. Everything was excellent. There is a vegetarian section in their menu, too. Great place for vegetarians!
