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 absolutely adored this homestay and would have happily stayed here for more then our 2 nights we booked. The location was gorgeous and we had probably one of the most beautiful sunrises of my life. The rooms were cute & quaint - we were even able to get in-room massages! The family was so kind, very attentive and made amazing food! They went out of our way to ensure our stay was incredible. Highly recommend. For my solo, female friends - I was there with my partner, but I would 100% feel safe here alone!

Incredible location, we were mesmerised with the surrounds, and how beautiful the property was designed. Immersed in a fantastic setting and the property blends in perfectly, with all the comforts. It feels completely isolated, yet easy to get to nearby attractions in Ninh Binh via motorbike or bicycles available for rent on site. Just the local taxi drivers seemed to have trouble with directions. Access road is quite rough and narrow in some spots, but no problems for any type of vehicle or walking. Owners were the most cheerful, kind and wonderful people.

The perfect place to stay to appreciate the tranquillity of the idyllic landscape around Ninh Binh. The setting is wonderful and the main attractions (Trang An / Mua Cave) are a short bike ride away - you can use complimentary bicycles or mopeds at the homestay. Staff are attentive, friendly and helpful. We were allocated rooms 1 and 2 which overlooked the lotus pond and fields beyond. They were large and really comfortable with a balcony to relax on in the evening sun. We even had a family of monkeys hanging around the trees at the back of the lodges. You have the option of eating delicious home-made food from a wide menu and the value is just amazing - 2 rooms for 2 nights, 3 evening meals and 1 lunch for 4 of us, all for less than £200 equivalent. Truly the highlight of our Vietnamese adventure. I can't recommend Lotus Field homestay highly enough.

The rooms are located in the most breathtaking spot of Ninh Binh. I had to pinch myself every morning and found myself just immersing myself every morning in the atmosphere. A truly magical location. In addition, what also made a huge difference to our break was the staff. The young man who checks you in and looks after your stay is second to none. Every interaction with him was a genuine pleasure. Very happy customer!

Beautiful scenery with stunning land scapes. What sets this Homestay apart if the staff, can’t thank you enough for all you help and care you gave us, always taking the time to do what they can. A Homestay that I’ve already recommended to a lot of people.

Had a wonderful time at this homestay. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The location is spectacular. Renting scooters from the homestay and driving into town was a trip highlight. The location is a little bit far from town, but that is also part of the charm of this place. It's not hard to get into town via scooter, bike, or taxi (though you may have to wait a little while for a taxi to arrive after being called). Breakfast and dinner options were plentiful and delicious. I highly recommend staying here for a unique experience close to nature.

I so wanted to fall in love with this homestay. I booked it for one night and of all the places we stayed during our two weeks in Vietnam, this was the one I was looking forward to most. And I would encourage anyone to stay here because it is a great place but we just had so many issues with our stay that I can't say our experience was great. First issue was finding it. We arrived in Ninh Binh on an extremely hot day (45c/113F). We had just spent three hours on a boat touring the Trang An area where we got a taxi to take us to the homestay. The first guy could not locate the homestay on his map app so he said no. The second guy also could not find it on his maps and said no. The third taxi driver thought he could just find it so he agreed to take us. He drove for about 15 minutes and then stopped at a narrow little street and said he could not take us any further because his car could not fit down the road that led to the homestay. He said it was less then a mile and we had to just walk there. So we started down this narrow alley that soon turned into a dirt road with no shade. We were using google maps on our phones to find it and it kept telling us to use roads that did not exist. It would say to turn left and it looked like they had started a road through the lotus fields but it was not completed so the only option was to wade through water which we were not willing to do. We kept walking but in 113 degree heat with no shade after 40 minutes of walking I ended up passing out in a ditch with heat exhaustion still with no idea where we were or how to find the homestay. After sitting many many minutes I tried calling the homestay for help. No one answered. I called several more times and after maybe the 6th time someone picked up but he spoke no English and hung up. After sending an email via the booking app I was able to communicate our situation and they said they would send someone to pick us up. It was the same guy who spoke no English that came on a scooter and was able to take us back one at a time. I felt bad because once he got me back to the homestay (which we would never have found on our own) I passed out again from the heat getting off the scooter and he just had no idea what to do with this crazy foreigner on the ground next to his scooter. There was no one there that spoke any English and it was just a mess. I think we must have been there during their down time because there was no one around the entire place. We just wanted to check into our room and lay down but he did not seem to want us to go to our room which was very strange (it seriously felt like they had forgotten we were coming). After about 40 minutes of sitting in a deserted seating area a car dropped off another girl that spoke a little English and then they took us to our bungalow. There was no "check in" procedure- they never checked our passports, gave us information about the homestay (scooter rental, meal options,), and we were never given a password for wifi. I don't think our bungalow had been used for quite a while because it was about 95 degrees in the room from being closed up. They turned the air on and brought in several fans but it was just too hot of a day for them to ever catch up so we spent a very long hot night here. We went a few times to the reception area but there was never anyone there (we had been hoping they would have some waters we could buy since there was none available). We had read online they offered a dinner option so we had been counting on that for dinner but it was very obvious this would not happen. We felt trapped and so isolated here (which was what we wanted and why we booked here but did not expect to have no one working here). A lot of other reviews mentioned a family that worked here that were so welcoming and helpful but this was not the case for us. The same caretaker that spoke no English finally got someone on the phone so we could make arrangements to rent a scooter from the homestay so we could at least go into town to try to find some food (we had not eaten since 6.30am). As we left we paid very close attention on the roads because they were not on our google maps at all so we could find our way back. We made sure to be back before dark and spent the rest of the evening in our bungalow trying to cool off (was still a very hot night). The next morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise sitting on the hammocks on the terrace and that almost made up for the mess that was the day before. The place is gorgeous and so peaceful. You could not ask for a more serene setting which is the major selling point of this homestay. Breakfast again seemed like maybe they had forgotten we were coming based on the photos I had seen of other peoples options. Ours was eggs and toast. Which was delicious but I could see a lot of people getting mad about that for the price you paid (there are a lot of other places much cheaper offering more amenities). We then spent the next few hours on the terrace just enjoying the scenery before our car came to take us to the bus pick up. About the bus pick up- when I booked our tickets (it was a limosine bus) it said pick up at this homestay was not available so we were gonna have to walk back to town to catch the bus. The lady the day before called the company and got them to agree to pick us up in a car to transfer us which was great not to have to walk back on another extremely hot day. But she is gonna have to be the one to call and give directions because they(limo service) also could not locate a good road on their maps. In all we just had a series of unfortunate events. While this was not the homestays fault it still dampened our experience. It is a hard location to find so my recommendation is let them arrange your pick up (I tried arrange that but they said this was not available when I asked ahead of time about doing so). Don't expect there to be someone who speaks English so if that is a requirement maybe seek other places (the lack of any staff being there for assistance was a little disappointing). Bring some snacks and drinks as there is no food or water available once you arrive. The appeal of this homestay is to be away from the bustle of town and out in the quiet countryside and this is still the highlight of this location. I loved this about it by the time we left and would still say it is a great place to stay but just be forewarned about some issues that may come up. I think any other time of year when it is not so hot it would be the absolute great place to stay in Ninh Binh.

You can’t beat this place for the views - stunning vistas. It’s run by a lovely family who are helpful and kind. The downsides are the paper thin walls, and very cold non insulated bungalows .. we were there in winter and it was very uncomfortable. It’s also very far from anywhere so if you want to be close to town this isn’t the place for you.

We recently had 3 nights here and would highly recommend. The warmth of the family that runs the place is amazing, they constantly assisted us with transport and suggestions of places to visit during our stay. Each cabin is comfortable and very clean with amazing views of the mountains over lotus fields. Very helpful staff

We had three nights at Lotus Field Homestay and loved every minute of it.! It all starts with the warmth and kindness of the family that runs the place. Mr. Anh is doing a great job in making sure You have all You need and gives You good advice and to make Your stay perfect. The cabins are spacious and equipped with a warmer, fan, electric kettle, hairdryer, minibar and a nice bathroom. The beds are big and comfy (a bit hard which we prefer) with a mosquitonet surrounding it. We didn`t experience any bugs, mosquitoes etc in the cabin, but maybe we got lucky. One night it was rather humid outside and a bit inside, but the warmer took care of it easily. They arrange a dinner for the quests every night at 7o`clock for a fair price containing fried/steamed rice with 7-8 different dishes to share. The food was delicious and the selection of dishes as well. We stayed in room 04 which had a great undisturbed view of the amazing nature. You are in walking distance to Mua Cave Viewpoint (around 3k), and You can easily reach the other sights and temples by bike/motorbike within 20-30 mins. We can highly recommend Lotus Field Homestay.!!
