Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at Lys home stay for 4 nights while exploring this beautiful region of Vietnam,between us we had 3 rooms and everyone of them were spotless and well set out. Ly and her husband run a very good and homely establishment where nothing is a bother from booking all our tours to our transport and even our transfer back to Hanoi's airport in a premium van everything was no hassle for Ly, also a note to say that Ly did all these things for us with no recompense to herself. A truly remarkable stay with a remarkable couple thankyou both so much for a true home stay with smiles and ❤️

We loved Ly’s Homestay! Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming. They have recently developed their property so everything was brand new, clean, spacious and very comfortable. Our hosts went out of their way to be helpful - making us breakfast, providing us with bikes, washing our clothes and organising transport to and from Hanoi. There was even a router in the room which is really important to me as I work remotely. We would definitely stay here again and next time we look forward to using the pool as the weather was a bit too cold when we were there. We would recommend staying at Ly’s Homestay, you won’t be disappointed!

We stayed at Lys for two nights after selecting & booking based on positive reviews. The reviews were entirely accurate.

Our room on the third floor was clean & comfortable with free water provided, a great shower, & a huge smart TV on which we watched a little bit of YouTube.

Breakfast was awesome on the morning after our arrival & we were even sent away with a take-out breakfast when we left at 5am the next morning.

Scooter rental was a bargain & the bike we selected did the job of getting two of us around local Ninh Binh attractions. Lys also arranged our private car transport from Ha Long Bay & back to Hanoi, all seamlessly charged to our accommodation bill.

This family-run enterprise exudes authenticity & genuine care for guests in a great location at fantastic rates.

Wow. I'm so glad I happened upon Ly's Homestay. I needed a break from hostel life without breaking the bank. She gave me a fantastic rate and service beyond compare. Great local info, fantastic trip booking, perfect location, great breakfast and all the amenities to make a very comfortable stay. There's only two rooms here but if you're lucky enough to get one, take it! You'll receive even better service if you're French (I noticed her French was better than her English) but I have ZERO complaints. The whole family walked me out to the taxi to see me off, she gave me a kiss on the cheek and some snacks for the road. My best experience at any hotel or hostel in all of Asia. 10/10!

Firstly I would like to thank Lys and her family for their care highly above the standard. She made our stay precious. She was really, really kind and helpful. She always wished us a nice day and she gave us a lots of advises about trips and neighborhood. Our room was clean and nice with a big windows. We really enjoyed tasty breakfasts which you can choose from a menu. There is also possibility to rent a bike or scooter, what we recommend, because this accommodation has perfect location for exploring surrounding areas. In the end of our stay Lys booked us a nice sleeping bus to Sapa and her son went with us to help us board on it. We also got some snacks and water from Lys. It was so heartwarming! We highly recommend you to book Lys homestay. You will not regret!😊 We will remember this experience forever.

One of the finest home stays in the Ninh Binh Area! The hostess is such a nice woman and she, with her whole family, have takes such a good care of us! The breakfast is really good and you can choose from a variety, from traditional pho to scrambled eggs with toast. They also rent out bikes/mopeds for a fair price to discover the surrounding area!

Great stay at Lys Homestay! The hosts were very nice and accommodating. They helped us book our onward travel at a good price and let us store our luggage, take a shower, have a swim and relax in the common area until our overnight bus arrived. The room was clean and included bottled water and breakfast. Really helpful and a great place to stay!

Really simple to find - central location but just off the main road so very quiet and tranquil but lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Great facilities renting bikes and pedal cycles. Laundry on site. Room was clean and well kept with excellent fridge. Swimming pool was a great feature alongside it a nice seating and lounging area. The owner and staff were very attentive helping us book taxis, getting us a reasonably priced all day taxi for sightseeing and even providing us with complimentary water and fruit for our train trip to Hue when we checked out. In summary - Great location, Great rooms, laundry on site (same day service), lovely owner and staff, excellent facilities and a great price.

Lys Homestay is an absolute gem. This is the second time we have stayed there and our second visit was every bit as wonderful as our first. It is run by a lovely family who do everything they can to make you feel at home. The rooms are immaculate and the location perfect. It is close to what would be considered the heart of the town but on a quiet street far enough away from the lake front square that you avoid the noise of the honking traffic. On our last visit the weather was chilly but our AC converted to a heater so we were toasty warm. The breakfast was comparable to all our Vietnamese breakfasts; coffee, tea, juices, eggs, pancakes, fruit etc. If motor bikes and bicycles are your preferred mode of transportation they have plenty of both and just received a batch of brand new bicycles the day before we left. If you are fortunate enough to stay at Lys Homestay we guarantee you will be happy you did. Paul and Geri Richardson, Canada

Lys Homestay is a great Homestay in Tam Coc. Close by to everywhere and very affordable. Rooms are clean with hot showers and AC. The family are some of the nicest people I’ve met and go out of their way to make your stay perfect.

The breakfast is fantastic as well. This gem of a Homestay should be on everyone’s radar if they are looking for a central location for exploring Ninh Binh.
