We arrived at 5 AM in Ninh Binh and we could check-in at that time without additional fees. The room was clean and the view was very nice. Bathroom was a little bit small but still ok, just make sure to turn the switch on for hot water! It looked like a residential area around the hotel, not much restaurants or store, so it was really quiet. Jackie, the manager of the hotel, also own a local restaurant near by where you can eat typical vietnamese food. It was one of our favorite restaurant, awesome local food, local price and perfect service! Ask for it at the front desk!
