Kim Lien Guest House was an excellent base while exploring the beautiful area around Ninh Binh. It is in a very quiet part of town and is near the western edge of the city which is closer to the main attractions in the area (such as Tam Coc, Trang An Grottoes, etc). It is also somewhat close to the main drag and it is entirely possible to walk to the train station, bus station, etc. If you rent a bicycle then everything in town is easy and quick to get to.
My room (a single) was basic but adequate. It was clean, had a comfy bed, and had hot water. The price seemed fair. The staff were friendly and helpful. I ate the set dinner once and it was tasty, fresh, and a very good price considering how much food was served.
Overall I enjoyed this guest house and feel it is a good choice when staying in Ninh Binh.More
