Tuan is a very enthusiastic host and an amazing cook!
I stayed with him for two nights.
He greeted me with excitement as I got in, me and other guests followed him to his football (soccer) game after dinner and he told us which spots to hit in great detail, giving us small tips to save a few bucks here and there and planning the next leg of our trip.
I'll definitely visit Tuan again!
(Ask him to prepare ginger chicken for dinner. He's a master!)
I liked the rooms, you have a lot of space and it's really quite because you're are in the nature and have only a few neighbous (they are really nice) and some neighbours ducks (really cute):) The view is really really really nice. Tuan, the owner, makes everything to feel home and you can move free in the whole house. The food cooked by Tuan, his sister or the neighbours (when I was there) is really good and the most time very traditional. When there were not to many guests we ate together with the family and the neighbours outside on a really nice wooden kind of terrasse. I loved to sit on the floor all together, eat and talk together. If you like to join some english classes it's possible because the really nice sister of Tuan gives nealy every evening some free english classes for the village kids. Also the surroundings are really nice and I can recommend to take the free bikes and just drive around in the nice ninh binh area. and one of my highlight was to go to the view point just next to the house early in the morning. I was the only one and I enjoid the view and the sun.
Fabulous place to stay, great location, spotlessly clean, and excellent value . Tuan is very friendly speaks excellent English he is very knowledgeable about the local area and can organize taxis/ transfers etc for forward travel. His wife is an excellent cook. Thank you for being so hospitable. We will return.
Excellent location, in the middle of the rice fields. The offer bikes for free so it is easy to discover Tam Coc and they give good advice.
The owner and his wife are so friendly, you will feel like family.
