It has taken me far, far too long to get round to writing this!
I stayed at the Ngoc Anh for six nights in March this year and I still remember my time there with pleasure. Tam and his sister are perfect hosts, and it is them and their readiness to do everything possible to make their guests feel at home that sets this hotel apart from the others in the town.
I'm not entirely comfortable with smallish inside rooms so I stayed in one of the larger ones overlooking the street. Actually it was far too large for one person, but boy did I enjoy having all that space to myself. The balcony ran the full length of the room and it was great to sit out there in the morning and late afternoon to watch the world go by. The room, and indeed the entire hotel, were kept spotlessly clean.
Another large plus with the Ngoc Anh was that there was no need to go hunting for a restaurant at the end of a long and tiring day as the food there was terrific. The fish in tomato sauce was particularly delicious and I became addicted to the pineapple and cucumber 'salat', which I had with every breakfast and dinner!
The best way to visit the nearby places of interest is to hire one of their bicycles. Cuc Phuong is too far to cycle to, but Tam can organise a motorbike with driver/guide at a lower rate than that charged by other hotels.
I am very grateful to Tam, his sister and all the staff for making this old lady so welcome, and I highly recommend the Ngoc Anh to anyone who is contemplating a stay in Ninh Binh.
