Very comfortable hotel and great staff
Central location, staff, near main attractions
Great stay. It's a small hotel for now, just two rooms, so large groups won't fit. But great for small parties and this means David, the owner, focuses all his attention on you. Terrific guy - very helpful. He sorted out transport (motorbike), a guide, had good recommendations for dining and was just all-round personable. You can stay comfortably in Ninh Binh for cheaper; the Vancouver is pitched at a higher price-point and a higher spender not on a tight budget, but it delivers the extra little touches. Would stay here again.

Fantastic. Was best hotel we stayed in Vietnam.
David the owner was great organised our transport and had excellent English speaking skills. Room was excellent clean and tidy and much better than the expensive hotel we had stayed in previous night.
Excellent. Look no further really well presented room with access to a laptop and free wifi. David the owner goes out of his way to help you to enjoy ninh binh which is a truly spectacular place and a must visit.

Awesome base for trips
Owner's passion for excellence, ability and willingness to help, modesty and patience of owner
Ninh Binh is not the destiny of choice for a city of itself - what it affords is awesome access to some of the sights around Ninh Binh that are truly amazing - and the hotel provides the means top achieve that unlike any other in my experience. This hotel is fledgling (two rooms) and has plans to expand and will if the owner continues along his current path. You really do feel in safe and caring hands when you land in this hotel.

a gem in Ninh Binh
we liked the quite location just off the main drag, the easy access to sights and local markets and the high standard of cleanliness and fantastic staff.
We had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at the vancouver. The staff especially David the owner was very helpful and obliging to our needs. He was very informative and full of advice regarding the local area . The hotel has a high standard of cleanliness and a pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Friendly, great location, great room
Clean, friendly, friendly
We stayed for one night and came with the night train from Hanoi. Our old hotel called David, the owner of the Vancouver hotel, and he picked us up straight from the moment we left the train. That was really nice, especially considering that it was already late evening. After he drove us to the hotel he recommended us some places to go and organized us a driver. We were three persons, and the room was really big enough. Also the bathroom was really nice and big. The whole room and hotel is pretty new and everything is well maintained and clean. Really awesome. He cooks the breakfast after you order. Breakfast was really good and tasty. He also recommended us some places to hang out around his hotel and in the evening we could shower in his bathroom and he also provided us new towels. It was really a pleasant stay, if you go to Ninh Binh, take a room at Davids place. You wont regret it and you also support a vietnamese family, and not a big hotel resort.

Wonderful. Sensational. We loved it!
Friendly, attentive , considerate staff, good food and amazing help with organising all our tours n northern Vietnam.
Our stay at the Vancouver Hotel was superb. Owner, Mr David, organised all our transport and tours by email correspondence. Everything was well organised, he listened to all our requests and worked out ways for us to see and do everything we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and his assistance made our time in Ninh Binh and also in Hanoi, Halong bay and Sapa very special and easy. From our first email correspondence to when we finally met him at our hotel in Hanoi David was professional and attentive, really taking that extra care to make our trip a happy one, We enjoyed the meals in the hotel and sharing a sip of rice wine one night with David. We fully recommend this nice little hotel.

Excellent, great service
Great service, good bed, pleasant family run hotel
Great stay,we arrived early in the morning and could access our room instantly. David, the owner/manager was very service oriented. For the trips through the mountains we rented scooters at the hotel and while goingto the National Park a private driver was arranged. When moving from Ninh Binh to Cat Ba Island, the hotel manager arranged our boat tickets and our drive to Haiphong. There were some comments of other travellers regarding the breakfact, in our opinion it was simple and good. We would recommend this hotel to everyone visiting Ninh Binh.. ps, Ninh Binh is not the most interesting city, but the sightseeing around Ninh Binh is fantastic.
