If you feel like getting out of Ninh Binh City and into more rural surrounds, then maybe opting for a stay in Tam Coc is your best bet for accommodation in Ninh Binh. Tam Coc’s village and its grottoes comprise a much more idyllic atmosphere than Ninh Binh City, with cheap places to stay abounding amid the green and gold rice fields.

Ninh Binh Hidden Charm Hotel & Resort is not so much a ‘hidden charm’ as it is a gigantic imposing building on the side of the road towards Tam Coc from Ninh Binh. Nevertheless, rooms are very stylishly decorated and many feature wonderful views of the undulating Tam Coc scenery.

3. Where to stay in Van Long Nature Reserve

Van Long Nature Reserve is a vast marshland where locals row boats for visitors to Ninh Binh who are maybe fatigued by the mass tourism in Tam Coc. The most peaceful solution to the question of where to stay in Ninh Binh is often Van Long.

Quite possibly the stateliest example of Ninh Binh accommodation, Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh is a stunning specimen of Vietnamese architecture, set on a lotus pond and encircled by tall limestone rocks. The level of service and quality of the amenities here is unbeatable, and this is reflected in its rather luxurious price tag of 2,800,000VND per night including breakfast.

4. Where to stay in Cuc Phuong National Park

Cuc Phuong National Park is right on the fringes of Ninh Binh Province, but it is gradually seeing more and more interest as its beauty is uncovered to visitors. Accommodation options are very sparse around the park as most tours come from Ninh Binh City, but any independent travellers looking to spend the night surrounded by rugged wilderness should check out the options.

4.1. Hotel

The cottages of the Cuc Phuong Resort & Spa are a bizarre mix of romantic straw-roofed huts and stately English manors. This adds much to the charm of this piece of Ninh Binh accommodation, along with its spa, gym swimming pool and location amongst the fertile trees of Cuc Phuong National Park.

5.1. Homestay

It seems like everything at Ninh Binh Panorama Homestay is made of bamboo, which adds to the very natural feel of the place. Hammocks are situated on the decks for anyone wanting to relax with a view of Tam Coc’s rice fields stretching for miles around them.

You can’t really get closer to the action than at Lotus Field Homestay, where stilt huts sit just above the water amongst the reeds. A wooden walkway connects the huts that lie at the foot of some vertical limestone peaks, while a view of Trang An waterway reaches out in front.
