A small lane separates Xuan Hoa hotel 1 and 2 in Ninh Binh, we stayed in room 406 in hotel 1 and it was perfect. We arrived at 5 am and we were allowed to check in and have some sleep for only 100,000 Dong instead of waiting until 12h. The room was very clean, the bed and pillow comfortable, we had a little balcony and the private bathroom had good pressure on the shower and hot water as well as free toiletries. The reception and restaurant are on hotel 2, we had 2 good dinners. Like in many other reviews, the owner was friendly, booked our onward journey to Hue and help us pick a hotel. Both the hotel and the bus worked out really well. We rented a scooter for 2 days at $6 each day and he kitted us out with maps and advice. All that said, if you're not renting your own scooter, Tam Coc is probably a better place to stay as you're then within walking distance or cycling distance to the boats in Tam Coc and the pagoda in Bich Dong but still as far to go to An Trang boats and Hoa Lu.
Standard budget room with comfy bed, great owner!”
Due to a change in our travel plans we had to change our original booking date and this was accommodated with no problem at all. We arrived at 5:30 am and had to wake the owner, he checked us in and took us straight to our room with no fuss. Mr Xuan is an excellent host. He provided us with detailed information regarding the sights to see around Ninh Binh and we rented a good quality scooter from him. We ate in the hotel restaurant a couple of times and he always had a good chat with us and shared some local 'Ninh Binh water' as he called it, otherwise known as rice wine. Based on his performance we would have rated 5 star but unfortunately there is a chap that works there most of the day who is one of the worst hotel staff we've come across. Every request was met with a grunt and he made it obvious we were putting him out massively. He spent considerable time lying on a bed watching films and ignoring his customers. He really lets the place down! The room was pleasant and the bed was incredibly comfortable! We stayed in Xuan Hoa 2 hotel which is a few doors down from Xuan Hoa 1.
Quiet;, friendly and familiar hotel, very helpful ”
Im very charmed of my staying in Xuan Hoa Hotel, is a familiar hotel very quiet and clean and in a good location to rent a motorbike to discover the amazing Ninh Binh, the staff is very helpful and honest, I forgot my passport in Hue and the they helped me very much, they called and arranged all to get it back, I really recomend this hotel
Good Hotel, great owner!”
We were in ninh binh for 2 days, each day the owner made an amazing Tour with us by bis car. He took us to the Nationalpark, pagoda and so on, for a good price. He also organized bus Transport to hue. He was really great during our stay. We have booked a very cheap room, but he gave us a bigger, more expensive room for the same money! Food was very good, but little expensive, but we wanted to try some speacialities of the Region, and therefore it little expensive. When eating at his Restaurant he always came with his 'ninh binh water', a ricewine ;) We recommend this Hotel!
Xuan Hoa 2 is GREAT”
Actually, though I initially booked into Xua Hoa 1 Hotel, on arrival I found it a bit dated and mildly depressing so I upgraded to the much more modern, adjacent, Xua Hoa 2 Hotel. I had the really nice and light 3rd Floor, large Room Number 403. This hotel has a lift and my room had its own balcony facing over a man made lake and two double beds, lots of hot water, FREE WiFi, A/C and fridge. Including breakfast it was a reasonable US$20 a night. Husband and wife team Xuan & Hoa speak good English, are very welcoming and are very welcoming. The food is very good. I particularly liked their fried rice with chicken and the sweet & sour chicken. I arrived by motor bike and they have secure parking for bikes. They also rent out scooters. A very good place to stay. Andrew Bruce, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland, UK.
Very nice accommodating owner”
our night bus arrived very early in ninh binh, and we got there at 3:30 am. after wandering around, we decided to wait outside the xuan hoa hotel and wait for it to open. before opening, mr. xuan noticed us waiting and gave us a room at 5:45 am. this was above and beyond what we would've ever expected. the room was big, and very average. there were a lot of ants all over the place, which were a slight nuissance, but not a huge bother. the restaurant is located in the 2nd hotel which is just down the street and the food is absolutely amazing. we rented a moto for the 3 days that we were there, and my one complaint was that the staff never told us that the gas gauge was broken on the first moto we got. it stalled and quit on the highway which was incredibly upsetting. once we told them that it broke down, it took a while to discover the problem. upon realizing the broken gas gauge, the staff ridiculed us for not filling it (when the gas gauge said the tank was full). the next day we were given a different moto and told relentlessly to fill it with gas (as if we didn't know that it needs to be filled). the gas station was only 600m from the hotel and they didn't give us enough gas to make it there and again, we were walking the moto on the busy highway. it was a little upsetting that they laugh at us rather than apologize. however, that was our complaint for the hotel/service, and everything else was good or great.
Excellent place with great staff”
We were dropped off at the hotel by a dishonest taxi driver who tried to scam us but fortunately Mr. Xuan Hoa stood up for us. It was very nice to see how involved he was in the situation and it made us feel safe and welcomed in his hotel. Our standard double room was big and clean with a big bed, air conditioning, TV, bathroom with hot water and toiletries. For breakfast we could choose from a variety of sandwiches and pancakes (which were very tasty) as well as a whole range of drinks (coffee, tea, juice). The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk away from the bus station. You can also rent good motorbikes at the hotel and/or book tours. Everything was great but the best was the kindness and helpfulness of Mr. Xuan Hoa and his family.
Average hotel, outstanding owner”
The hotel could use a refresh, it looks old and a bit cold, most is ever present. Beds are fine. Prices for the food are a bit high for the quality. This said, Xuan, the owner, will go far and beyond to help you in your trip, suggesting the best spots to avoid the touristy places. We really enjoyed our staying here, especially the excursion in Trang An! He will also offer to guide you in your trip if you want it, planning everything as you like. Definitely going to stay here again if I come to Ninh Binh!
Good Location and Price”
Hotel is Close to Bai Dinh Pagoda and Tam Coc. 5minutes to Ninh Binh city. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Friendly owner, good location and nice rooms”
We had a very nice stay in Xuan Hoa 1 hotel. Nice owner/family and a very good location for visitting the everything around Ninh Bihn.
Clean hotel with good value and helpful staffs”
Good english spoken, and warm family atmosphere. The position is over 10 minutes walk from the train station so if you arrive late you may ask for a pick up by moto. Small lake view, and clean pretty large room (we stayed in Xuan Hoa 2. You can ask for moto cycle hiring and the drivers are very kind. Free WiFi available in all rooms (at least mine which is 5F).
Nice base for tours to nearby sights”
Found this place in Lonely Planet who recommended it highly. The owner Mr Xuan is a lovely man and speaks good English and gives great advice. The room is clean and convenient with a soft bed for once. Restaurant and service was excellent. Nice family run place. I hired a moped from them and they booked my bus to Hue also.
Great food & accommodation”
We stayed 1 night in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly, spoke good English and were very helpful in suggesting things to see on our travels the following day. As we had our own motorbike they were not pushy in trying to sell tours etc. The room was comfortable, bathroom was ok, tv didn't work (but that wasn't really an issue for us). The best part was the quality of the food in the restaurant. I can thoroughly recommend eating in and sampling some of the local Vietnamese dishes. Great stuff!
Friendly helpful staff”
Pretty good. We took the motorbike tour of ninb binh in the morning was cheap and saw a lot. Shame it rained but had a great day. Food wasn't great thou but staff were very friendly.
Good cheap stay including breakfast. ”
Can't daily our stay here. It's a 1 star hotel so you get what you pay for. Owner was nice and really helpful.
great hotel in good location”
we arrived early morning & they picked us up & took us straight to our room no problems, they were so very helpful. the next day we quickly organised a motorbike & got good advice of where to visit. the hotel is in a great location.
The owner was very helpful. The hotel is close to the railway station but a bit of a walk. The room was very reasonably priced and included breakfast which was ok.
Good stay here”
This place was a great fit for our needs. Owners very nice. Clean. Can walk to bus. We let them know we were getting dropped off at 5am and a lady very kindly let us in and showed us to our room. We paid a little extra to check in so early (which we were happy to do and very grateful for.) Thank you again so much for that!!!
Moody but helpful ”
Very complete clean room. Anything you want to know about visiting places ask the owner. He will always be a bit in a mood but, the info is worth it. They serve goat (traditional dish, it gets fried in your table.
Good value for money”
The room was very clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. He told us where to go and how to go to benefit most in term of both time and money.
