The room we had was a larger room with two beds and far exceeded our expectations , clean well appointed and spacious . Our hosts were amazing. Organising meals at different times taking us to attractions and dropping us off at train station at the end of our stay. Would highly recommend. Super friendly and very knowledgeable. Food was delicious .The happy water was a nice touch at Dinner times. We ate all meals over the three days in the cosy restaurant .

We booked for a two night stay after reading the TA reviews. From first contact to the time we left, our hopes and expectations were more than matched. Before our arrival we contacted Mr. Truong to ask if he would pick us up at the station after our overnight train journey from Dong Hoi and take us back to his hotel for breakfast and to freshen up before travelling out to see the local area, this was all arranged via WhatsApp. As we came out of the station he was waiting to meet us and drive the short journey to his hotel. The breakfast menu is very extensive and offers a very good choice, the food was equally delicious. Our room was ready and we rested for a short time before showering to go out. The room was spacious with a huge bed, it was light and airy, with a good bathroom, there was also tea and coffee making facilities. Mr. Truong knows the area well and offered several sightseeing options. Some places were closed due to the Coronavirus situation but he found areas that were open and we had a full afternoon with him. On our second day we arranged for him to take us out for the day to Trang An and the Van Long Wetlands and he recommend the best boat journeys to take. He gave us information about the whole area and took us to places that are not necessarily on the normal tourist route. Having been pleased with our first breakfast and seen the varied menu for dinner we decided to eat in on both nights and had lovely home prepared meals in a nice relaxing atmosphere. We had arranged with Mr. Truong to travel on to Halong Bay, but received a message to say our cruise had been cancelled. He offered to take us to a more remote National Park and homestay for a couple of days, a trip he has done many times. It sounded really good but we opted to go straight to Hanoi because of the closures and our own health concerns. Nothing is too much trouble for this lovely family, you will be made to feel very welcome.

I've stayed in hostels, hotels, guesthouses all over, and this place should be a model for all others. The attention to detail is amazing. Super well-appointed room/bathroom. We had the "luxury" room, the only one with a window on three walls for excellent cross-ventilation (until the air quality outside got bad). Loved the goose-neck bedside reading lamps and amazing shower heads. Wifi was slow at times. Usually when breakfast is included in the room price, it's a set menu and often continental. By contrast Mr. Truong offered a multi-page menu of made to order breakfast items. Incredible.

Booked the room for the wrong day by mistake, they let us cancel our booking without charge and arranged our stay for the right night. Room was nice and clean, hot shower, AC and heating. Breakfast nice too, you can pick anything from the menu :) Lovely family, very helpful with everything (tours, transport, information of any kind).

We spent 2 nights at the Friendly Home hotel & we had the best time. The big 5-star hotels could learn a lot from the very genuine customer focus and high service levels at Mr & Mrs Truong's family hotel. The rooms are spotless & so comfortable, the food for breakfast & the evening meal we had was absolutely excellent. Again the service, hospitality from the Nguyen family was so wonderful & enjoyable. We also had the benefits of Mr Truong as our personal guide for 1.5 days showing us the best sights of Ninh Binh. His knowledge was awesome and it made the absolute best of our time and the weather - we never would have seen so much in same time had we tried to do it ourselves. From our 14 day trip from north to south, the sights around Ninh Binh & the amazing hospitality we received at Friendly Home hotel were a genuine highlight. Thank you Mr & Mrs Nguyen for an excellent stay!
