The Queen Hotel: A Pleasant Surprise
WE stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in Nov 2015. We arrived by train from Hanoi intending to stay 2 nights to do the river ride. We ended up staying 4 nights solely because of the pleasant nature of this hotel and the neighborhood surrounding it.
Our rrom was rather large with large bathroom. Facility appears very new and in excellent condition. Room was extremely clean as was the entire hotel. Flat screen TV with many English channels inc HBO, Showtime. We paid about $20 USD total per night which included breakfast. Breakfast was quite good with a selection from about 6 entrees from a menu on some days and on others a fairly large buffet breakfast, depending on how full the hotel was I guess. Dining room is very large, bright, clean and cheery. Wifi is available throughout hotel and is free. The staff speaks good English and were very pleasant and helpful. The owner actually drove us to the train station the morning we left, complimentary, with no explanation as to why, a very nice and unexpected gesture. I highly recommend this hotel and I also highly recommend you extend your stay in Ninh Binh if you are just looking to unwind a bit.
Perhaps one of the outstanding features to this hotel is the neighborhood it is located in. Minutes walking distance from bus station, small streets packed with very attractive and well kept cafes, restaurants and shops, delightful spots to just sit and relax and take it all in day or night. An excellent restaurant just two doors down with friendly staff. Actually bestowed departing gifts on us our last evening here, different snacks to enjoy on our long train trip the next day. A very homey feel to the whole little neighborhood tucked away from the noisy areas of this fairly good sized city.

Xuan Hoa Hotel: Be part of the family in this hotel
Having being dropped off a local bus from Vinh, on the main street, we had little idea of accomodation available and were heading for only one we had heard of, Queens. A motorbike pulls up and the rider asks if we are looking for somewhere to stay. Usually, I would be very suspicious and reluctant to go with such offers but he showed us the hotel card and said if we came and did not like the place, he would take us to Queens for free. Fair enough!!
No worrying necessary though, as from the moment we arrived, the whole family who own the hotel were so warm and friendly and the hotel new, spotless, well equipped and located.
Given that Ninh Binh doesnt really get that many over night visitors, there arent that many restaurants but there is no need for them as the hotel's food is excellent (see restaurant tip). The restaurant is downstairs and was a good meeting places for the travellers staying there especially when the owner keeps giving you shots of the local brew for free!!
Rooms are tiled floors and all ensuite with double glazing, balconies, tv, hot water, a/c, fan and nicely furnished. Building is your typical narrow, tall Vietnamese style and they are currently working on doubling the size.
They offer bike and motorbike rental, tour services, train tickets and cafe bus tickets. Their advice is excellent and there is no attempt to rip you off at any point. We went on a variety of trips with them. All excellent.
Even on departure, they will take you to the train or bus for free and will not accept no for an answer.
Friendliness and great service of the staff.
Great value for money hotel (10 USD for double room) and travel services.

Queen's Hotel: Best place in town
Great range of rooms, all very clean and tidy.
My Luong has to be mentioned. You'll meet him, and he really does talk (good English). He does appear to be most reliable and honest, if you're in any doubt!
And the food's excellent
