Our Favorite place in Vietnam.”

We spent six nights in Ninh Bình and were so glad we found Ruby Homestay. We found this place riding around on a motorbike and decided we wanted to move there based on what we actually saw. The pool was excellent and the location was perfect. To put it all over the top, our host was extremely generous and hospitable. We hope to go back to Ninh Bình and wouldn’t think to stay anywhere else.

Lovely owners - so friendly ”

‘Rupy/Papa’ doesn’t speak English but he uses his phone to translate conversation back and forth. He was excellent, very friendly family, from teaching us Vietnamese to offering to take us to his beehives in the Bird Valley. The breakfast is perfect - the best banana pancakes with organic honey from his bees. The bungalows are large and clean, from reading other reviews they are mistaken when saying there is a pool though. This belongs to neighbouring hotel ‘Lavender’ which you can pay to use if you wish. The location is great, a short walk down a quiet road, we hired a bike which you need if you want to get to Trang An, waterfalls etc. Really wonderful stay in Tam Coc thanks to this family.

Exceptional hospitality and Value!”

The owners, Ruby and Cau could not have been more accommodating. From their warm welcome and exceptional friendliness to their arranging a taxi for our departure and everything in between, it was a great experience. The breakfast was custom made and Delicious and a delicious lunch is available too. We had 2 rooms (small, individual cabins) and both were modern, spacious, clean and well appointed. With air conditioning and fan and plenty of hot water. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and it’s a very short walk to town with easy access to boats and restaurants. There is cold bottled water, beer, wine and other cold drinks available 24 hours for a reasonable price. Maybe the best stay of our vacation. We were confused at first by the term “home stay”, thinking it may be a shared room or B&B but we’re very pleasantly surprised with the individual cabins combined with the genuine home feel from the owners. A fantastic value!

We stayed here for 4 days in total and it is our the best hotel so far in Vietnam. The host family were welcoming a lot and tried to help us :D They have big swimming pool and free bicycle as well. The breakfast is filling ( such as Bread, Eggs, Veges, Fruits and Tee or Coffee). It is located in Tam coc so you can easily go anywhere! I highly recommend here and I would like to stay again if I visit Vietnam again! Thanks.

Great homestay”

This is a great budget option for a family. We arrived in the middle of the night and Ruby had made arrangements for the room to be open. Location wise its very convenient to Tam Coc and local attractions and restaurants etc. Kids had access to the pool next door so that was awesome as well. The rooms are pretty simple but fair for price overall. Ruby is the highlight though, he looked after us so well and made the stay amazing. He organised transport at great rates, and exposed us to local foods, language and experiences. I'd stay again if I was back there.
