“Great hotel with incredible rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

The hotel is quite new and very clean. The room we had was gorgeous, very large with a fantastic bathroom. Definetly recommended. PS stay away from the restaurant, expensive, dull food and very inefficient service!

Avoid at all cost this hotel is just a joke; staff doesn't speak English nor French; pool is dirty and food at restaurant is insipid and over priced. Asked for a Beer, they served it WARM! Was this really a 4 star hotel??? have it closed or take over by Americans who know what service is like!

Dear Mme ,sir .....

We are please to thank you for your staying at our hotel and for your important comments.

We very regret because an our Restaurant staff had served a not very cold bottle of beer that made you upset. At that moment, our leader of customer-care team (who could speak both English and French fluently) had explained and said a sorry by French with you.

For the food which means “Vietnamese noodle soup” as your detail complaint, we think it is unfair to compare price and quality of “Vietnamese noodle soup” in our restaurant with the other one in street where always contains the risk of losing food hygiene especially of fresh spice vegetables.

On next day morning, you had a conversation with a receptionist and a representative of restaurant and both of them had talked with your in French – your original language.

We hope to server you next time at Ninh Binh Legend Hotel.

This hotel is literally in the middle of nowhere. It is about 500 metres from the main road, and no shops or restaurants of any kind in sight. So this is more suited for tour groups, and definitely not for backpackers.

The facade of the hotel was not much to look at, but the rooms were comfortable and the staff were very friendly and responsive to requests. Best of all, it was a completely non-smoking hotel! Extra points for that.

Some reviews mentioned there were no food, and staff did not speak English. When we were there, they had a fully functioning kitchen that served us a decent 8-course Vietnamese dinner. Decent spread for buffet breakfast with a good mix of continental and local cuisine. We were also able to communicate with the staff in English, so no problems there.

The room was big and clean, and the beds were also big. Bathroom was clean and big. Decor was very basic. To nick-pick a little, the beds were a little hard and the pillows were a little soft, and they had old CRT TVs. But these didn't bother us.

Overall, comfortable enough to stay the night, but not a destination in itself.

First of all. something about the bulding that looks most moscow style (lubjianka building for istance! ) but that is not the real problem.

Rooms are big enough, such as the bed, but that's all. Most of the worker doesn't speak english or french. the restaurant is expensive and not vietnamise at all, just asian style with no flavour and no soul. Terrible noodles cooked two day before!
and breakfast absolutely under the 4 stars standard.

The pool is not clean and some days the bath is forbidden for this reason.

We stay 10 days for business reason, so the hotel owner make us assure to fix a good rate, in the end we find out that our rate was the same you can find on internet, no discount at all. I'm agree to pay the rate but don't tell me is a special price just for me !

every evening a couple of buses and plenty turist came just for one night stop and then let's go for some vietnam tour..
So, in the end, I can assure this is an hotel good for, old turist, gathering of retired people, travelling with tour operator.

Absolutely to avoid if you are a real traveler, who want to taste Vietnam, or a business man who are looking for a superior accomodation .

A new hotel in the middle of nowhere. Big, clean and empty. The rooms are huge and the beds are super huges! We try to eat in the room one night and it was virtually impossible! no one speaks english and the kitchen had no food other that noodles. The location is beautiful.

Dear Mr. Patricio,

Warmest greeting from Ninh Binh Legend hotel.

There is a long time from April, 2011 when your group stayed here. We hope your product will become a great movie.

Thank you for your friendly comment. We sorry about your disappointed night because of our incomplete Room Service but we remember another your midnight small party which had been serviced by all our night-staff with boiled chicken and beer.

We hope will be served you again.

It is really quite good considering the location and price we paid for the rooms and previous experiences with hotels in similar locations. The rooms were really huge and the food was not too bad. While it isn't the best, but it is quite sumptuous and the price was reasonable. An 8-course meal for 10USD/pax is worth it. Service was good too.

Room Tip: Get a corner room.

Avoid this hotel if you can. It's a charmless block way out of town in the middle of building sites. The food is simply horrid, and odd mix of Vietnamese and Western, which is nothing like either. The staff smile a lot and do nothing, I had to ask three times for laundry to be collected and a request for the minibar to be restocked was entirely ignored.
The only virtue of this hotel is large clean rooms.
Don't stay here if you want any experience of real Vietnam.
