The thing that made my stay in this hotel was the friendliness of the staff. I got bitten by a dog so had to go to hospital to get my rabies jab. The hotel owner took me to hospital immediately on his bike, waited with me and explained to the doctors what had happened and even refused when I offered to cover the cost of parking the motorbike. The hotel itself is nice, it's a good base to explore the surrounding area.


We really enjoyed our stay at Canh Dieu hotel. The staff were very helpful and always available to answer our queries. The room was nice; clean and comfortable, and with a good view. It was well located for the train station, market and some nearby restaurants. We were given free water, a fruit shake and a lift to the station when we left-much appreciated. We organised a day trip to Cuc Phuong, and were driven by the owner of the hotel. And the cost of the room was very reasonable. Many thanks!


The staff was great, really kind and helpful, which always makes your stay so much better. Thank you again!! :) And 'til next time!


Recommended. Buses to Hanoi and south stop directly in front of the hotel. Staff were friendly, helpful, and prices were all clearly listed. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and our room had a heater (which was great, since it was drizzly and cool when we were there). Not much going on around the hotel, but there are some little pho places around the corner. They organize cars and motorbikes for sightseeing. Noise from passing trains might disturb some guests. Food was good and inexpensive.


Great friendly family run hotel. The tours are expensive, but worth it. You get a private chauffeur (I believe it was the dad of the family) and he is really friendly and helpful. The food in the hotel was ok, and reasonably priced. Hiring a scooter was cheap and easy. The room was quite comfortable and clean, they even let us check out about 7pm with no extra charge. Definitely would stay here again.


The most friendly, helpful and genuine staff we have come across in 4 months of travelling. Nothing was too much trouble, they went out and bought our train tickets from a ridiculous busy station for no commission, bought a Sim card for us, helped put credit on it, and generally helped with all our queries. Good breakfast (a choice of one drink and one food item from the menu).. Big spacious rooms with aircon, tv and fridge.It can be a little noisy due to the train station but is ok at night.


Clean and comfortable hotel to stay in when passing through. Staff were helpful and helped us get to the train station. Breakfast was good, so much bread!


Satisfactory hotel. Staff was pretty helpful booking tours, I wish they had given more information however. Not amazing, but no glaring problems. Bed was EXTREMELY firm.


Nothing here was 'bad' per say, but nothing was good or above average either. Contrarily to other reviews, I found the staff to be very neutral, like they didn't care. The room was small and they don't wipe the bathroom floor when they do the room which leaves you stepping in water everytime you go in. I found the tours to be way overpriced; ask for the total price (chauffeur was fixed price, but food was 14$/person, not 14 for 2). Bike rentals is 2.50 US$, it's 1US$ everywhere else in Vietnam..


The room was very small but comfortable. In January the room was very cold and promptly brought me a heater. A friendly and honest famil,y bought me the train ticket and did not charge commission. Ninh Binh is a city to visit almost no tourists.


Very helpful staff and nice breakfast


Very nice and helpful staff. The room was clean. You can rent a bike for 1$ per day (really easy to go to Tam Coc).


The staff here are excellent - they were really helpful in calling around town when we wanted to hire motor bikes for the day and most were already taken, helped us book our onward travel when we couldn't get a seat on the train because it was sold out, good restaurant recommendations, and let us leave our bags in a room and have a shower after we checked out before we got on an overnight bus.


Very close to the train station. Nice and friendly family! Even though it is less then a 10-minute walk to the train station, they brought us to the train station by car for free (including free bottle of water)! Good value for money and cheap bike renting.


Very nice hotel. Basic but good. And the staff is great and so helpfull!
