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.

As someone who normally frequents 5 star hotels, I was concerned about trying a Homestay. My mind was out to ease immediately as the owner and his family are better than most concierges at 5 star hotels. We started with a discussion over beer of options for good and sightseeing. From that point, the owner made all arrangements for us. He acquired a scooter for us to go to paddle boat tours and the pagodas. The next day, he acquired a driver for us to go to hike in the national park. He was always present to greet us on departure and arrival. His wife cooks an excellent breakfast. He put the best restaurants within walking distance into our GPS. The rooms are large with nice bathrooms, big ceiling fan and cold air conditioning. I will not return to northern Vietnam without finding an excuse to stay in this lovely small town.

Limestone View Homestay is a very comfortable and clean hotel, and the owner, Dzung, and his wife, made our stay even better. Their hospitality and enthusiasm for service was heartwarming and made you feel at home. The room is very spacious, the breakfast is delicious, the location is ideal. You are only a few minutes bicycle ride away from the most scenic attractions, restaurants are a walk away, and the view from the rooms and rooftop are spectacular. You are literally INSIDE the limestone rock karst forest, not observing it from a distance. Highly recommend LVH for anyone looking for accomodations in the Ninh Binh area. Thank you Dzung, to you and your family!

Dzung and his family are the perfect hosts. No hesitation at all to recommend this homestay. Everything about it is faultless. But, the key thing is that they are just really nice people who try hard. And, he makes the best coffee in Vietnam!!!!!

Dzung and his family get 10 stars for service, he truly goes above and beyond with fantastic recommendations, booked us scooters, car transfers, restaurant suggestions. Huge room with 2 king beds for my 19 yo son and I with a view of the limestone mountains. Delicious breakfast each day fresh pancake with banana, fresh fruit, fresh juice and coffee. We walked at night, an easy walk, to the restaurant “Nha Hang De Chinh Thu” (one of Dzung’s recommendations) and ate stir-fried goat and stir-fried vegetables (all green). I was sceptical about the goat (a local speciality) but both dishes were superb. The following night we ate at “Trang A Riverside Garden Restaurant” (a little bit further past the first restaurant but not far) and they serve pizzas as well as traditional Vietnamese dishes. Restaurant, food and service was great. Highly recommend both restaurants. We hired scooters and explored the area along the dirt road 479B (look on Google maps), it was beautiful and could also be explored by bicycle. The Trang An boat tour is best done first thing in the morning or at 3pm (which avoids the day-tripper crowds). We took Route 3 which was fantastic as it takes you through the longest (1km) and lowest cave, stunning scenery. We also rode to Mua Caves and climbed to the top, again best done before 9am or after 3pm to avoid the crowds. Very steep steps but incredible views. Then we explored Tam Coc. You can either cycle from Limestone View Homestay, scooter there, or hire bicycles in Tam Coc, head towards ‘Buffalo Cave’ on Google Maps and explore lots of little paths in that area, just beautiful. Ate lunch at Spice Garden Restaurant in Tam Coc which was good food. The Bai Dinh Pagoda and temples ‘Tourist Complex’ are impressive despite being only ~12 years old new. Despite that it’s worth a visit because of its colossal size. It’s 250,000VND for a ticket that lets you hop on and off the electric bus at the different sites and go up to the top of the Pagoda. The 60,000 ticket only gets you in the gate and it’s a long uphill walk to reach pagoda and temples. We also visited the Ancient Capital which was interesting reading the local history. All in all, staying here at Dzung’s and exploring the area was the highlight of our Vietnam trip.

We had a great stay at Limestone View. The hosts Dzung and Dep were very kind and helpful. The room was large and clean, wifi provided and a great fresh cooked breakfast each morning with fresh fruit and juice and Vietnamese coffee. Dzung made sure our family was very well looked after, helping with all aspects of our time in Ninh Binh. We were able to use bikes and rode to all tourist locations with Dzung’s helpful map and guidance. Dzung organised private transfers for us which were very comfortable and reasonably priced. There is a roof top pool which would be good in summer (but the weather was too cold to swim in December). We would recommend staying here!

We spent two night here in a stunning room with spectacular views. Dzung and his wife Dep were so helpful and kind and attentive, included breakfast served on the top floor with 270 degree view of the mountains and village, free use of bikes, dinner no longer provided but the walk into the little village of Trang An in the dark with Dzung’s high powered flashlight for dinner at one of the handful of local restaurants was part of the magic and charm of this sweet little town. (Yes their most famous restaurant serves only goat, with an impressive line of vans and cars arriving on Saturday night, but I met some of these goats on a motorbike ride to the local bird sanctuary and could not bring myself to try it.) Dzung arranged the motorbike rental and offered a late check out as we were catching a late train south. Off the main tourist path with a real feel of country life, close to everything there is to see. The whole family was welcoming and we really felt like we were visiting long lost relatives. Truly unique and unforgettable experience!

Definitely recommend, best place we stayed at during our 3 week trip to Vietnam. Dzung and his family are very beautiful people and we loved staying with them. The homestead is spotless clean with extra large rooms and beautiful views. The location is also excellent with a lot of attractions easily a bike ride away. Would definitely recommend. We are already missing them. Thanks again dzung and family we loved your homestead.

This was the best homestay we have stayed in throughout Vietnam for many reasons. 1)The rooms are big, clean and have great bathrooms and A/C 2) There is a rooftop pool and a fridge with soft drinks and beers you can drink and pay for at end of stay 3) The breakfast is fantastic and they have a laundry service if needed 4) Location is fab with main attractions within cycling distance (can borrow bikes) and lots of restaurants nearby but quiet with stunning views 5) Last but not least Dzung and family are exceptional hosts, booked tours and transfers (if required) and give great advice. They were so kind and very flexible when I was unwell and had to delay things We would stay here again and recommend 100%!
