My boyfriend and I have been traveling around South East Asia for 3 months now and staying here felt very homey for us. Everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating. We were only going to stay for 4 days but ended up extending our stay for 7 days instead, as it was a nice break for us. For their free breakfast you choose one meal and one drink, which honestly wasn’t enough for us all the time. However you can always order more which is between 20,000-30,000 VND. So for us that was only about 1$ CAD extra for breakfast (which wasn’t a big deal). We loved their dining area, you can play pool and they also have cards you can play as well. For lunch and dinner they have LOTS of options, including vegetarian, and everything that we ordered throughout our stay we loved. Plus the food was reasonably priced. The room was good for the price, it was cleaned every day and stocked with new towels. The only problem with the room is that the walls are VERY thin, and you can hear your neighbours very clearly. You can rent scooters on site for cheap and they give you a map with the best destinations to visit and how to get there. Overall we would highly recommend to anyone!! We’re definitely going to miss cherry (their dog), the workers and the homestay. Hopefully we’ll be back one day!!

Nice option if you don't want to stay in Tamcoc. Everything is high standard and good value for your Dong. Nice rooms with soft beds and nice view on the garden. The swimming pool next to the rocks is a big plus. Friendly manager who we every time we walked by, made a friendly chat.
Two things that make this review a 3 star instead of 5:
- a lot of noise during breakfast time because of the building. Building noise is acceptable during the day after for example 9 am, but constant noise in the morning is not OK.
- When we arrived at 10 pm the last night at the hotel, the gate was closed. We rang the bell dozens of times, phoned the hotel and whistled and called for people. No contact and nobody there! Except the dogs... We had to park our motorbikes outside the gate (safe?) and had climb the fence. This was scary because we didn't know what the dogs would do. We managed to reach our room. At the reception we looked for a person to speak to, but nobody. The place was abandoned and if you wanted you could take everything. Really strange.

We spoke to the manager the next day about both things and he would tell it to the owner. That's a good thing! Normally we don't complain very fast about things but this didn't feel very welcome.
Overall we had a nice stay here and we liked the friendly and helpful staff!

I hope this review helped you to choose a nice place to stay in Ninh Binh!

We had a not so good experience in secret garden:

I would not write this if it was a 10$ hostel, then you get what youpay for!

- paid 34euro/night (900.000dong)
- unwashed bed linnen, bed linnen was not washed, sweat stains, hair of previous user still on the bed and cushions, even spiderweb (including free spider ;) between cushion and wall.
- swimming pool dirty water, uncleaned pool
- party-place for vietnamese:
The whole hotel common area/garden is rented for partys (maybe mainly in wknd), loud people, even someone tried to enter our room in the middle of the night...
- breakfast very poor:
One, dish to chose, untasting...

- pro's: thick matres, good one's...

In genereal:
No value for money! Poor service!

We stayed here for 2 nights in there little house in there garden. First of all, they are very very very very friendly. We loved interacting with the lady working there, the little son, the dof named chili and the cat Miaauw. The restaurant with pooltable where lovely, with a lovely view. We rented 2 motorbikes and explored the area with our 3 kids. Don’t expect a good hotel but a Nice Homestay with very friendly and helpfull people. When staying in the area, we do recommend!

Went for dinner this evening, 3 separate orders - fried shrimp with cashew nuts, stir fried noodles with seafood, cucumber and tomato salad plus fried fish. It was all delicious and served with a smile. Think a wider dessert menu would be great but the mango pancakes were fine.
Good value meal and within walking distance of our homestay.
Many thanks.
