    Clean and comfotble room. Good AC. Great location along the river and a quick walk to central Yangshou. Staff all spoke good English. Lots of tours offered but didnt do any. We ate twice at the hotel restaurant, both of which were very good.

    We paid extra for a room with a river view however the 'view' is obstructed by a row of trees which ran all the way across the front of the hotel, so a bit missleading. Shower also ran hot and cold and needed more power. Overall I would recommned this hotel however dont waste money on a river view room because you will be dissappointed.

    Help at desk hotel was basic and did not feel welcome at any moment. Room OK. We do not have problems sleeping but street is busy with small bbqs so if you have a light sleep this might not be your hotel!

    Location Friendly staff speaking good English. Organized two tours very efficiently. Set up good quality taxis to/ from Guilin hassle -free. Had room with nice balcony overlooking river. Working WiFi.

    Can be noisy well into the night, but the whole city is that way. Hotel showing its age.

    This was a good hotel with an excellent restaurant attached! We ate most meals at the retaurant and the menu was fantastic. The location was excellent and quiet for Yangshuo itself, however if I were to visit the area again I would prefer to stay outside the main town as west street was a very noisy and busy place. However for convenience for transport, trips and local amenities it was fantastic and staff were very helpful. They rented us bikes and were able organise airport transfers and local trips for us.

    Friendliness of staff. Location close to amenities but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Nice views of the mountains and river.

    Location just next to the river with a very nice view. There is an excellent restaurant with reasonable prices.

    There is a street market nearby so if you count on silence it is not a good choice.

    - off Xi Jie (easy to get to the main road, but not noisy) - facing river - clean - large rooms - great food (inexpensive and decent quality)

    - climbing steps (no lifts). - staff who are a little disinterested

    Location, food, staff were all excellent. As I don't speak Chinese, the fact that staff had good English and knowledge of local areas made getting around independently very easy.

    only fair is size of the family room we had, good enough for 3 people

    lets start with that there are two river view hotels-the same owner, and what I was told: first one is for and the second one further down the street-for Chinese people. pics on are from Chinese hotel which we coudnt stay in. our room in the first hotel was shabby, dirty walls, broken door handle, no promised river view. they don't offer anything for free, staff is rude, even for local map full of ads youll have to pay. if you don't want to go for any of their organised trips forget about getting any service or advise. if you don't want take their bikes forget about any info in terms of possible routes or cycling tips.if you want to eat elsewhere forget about any advise from them where is the best place to eat. location further from very noisy West str but be ready to hear drunken and very loud people coming back from there every night and hanging outside this hotel, earplugs is a must. overall don't stay there, unhelpful staff and zero service if you pay for room only, no help for independent travellers, misleading pictures here, you not going to get what you see.

    The staff were fantastic. Communication even prior to arrival was fantastic.

    Bring some insect spray.

    The hotel was well located being just around the corner from where you want to be of an evening and the room was large and clean. The menu is attractive both for choice and price. We eat there several times and for bkft we made up our own combinations and drank 3in1 coffee in our room. We did rent a motor scooter for the day which was the highlight of our China holiday. Satisfy yourselves as to how legal it is. We passed many police on foot and in vehicles on the open road with no problems!!!!!

    Well mature trees blocked any but the smallest pinhole of a view to theriver. I said the staff were excellent, which they were, BUT BEWARE this whole town is a rip off prices wise, and the really helpful staff are out to make a bit on excursions and rentals etc. and do neglect to tell you certain aspects of excursions etc. Although the food was generally good I ordered the schnitzel; it could not be eaten, tough wrong meat, not tenderized and hammered. I returned it and ordered another dish. When I came to pay the manager/owner said nothing to me when I offered the advice to take the schnitzel off the menu to save him further aggravation. I had to pay for it!!!

    Extremely comfortable room which had steps up to the roof from the balcony for better views (ask for room 405). A fridge and safe would have made it perfect. Fantastic location yet quiet at night (except for the noisy insects in the trees outside!) Very effective air con.

    Food in the restaurant wasn't great. Staff a little too keen to sell extras like tours. Towels appeared to be replaced daily but weren't always as clean as they might be. No air con in public areas.

    Great location. A/C worked well. Nice beds and balcony. Decent bathroom.

    Can be very noise late into the night with tons of chinese tourists out. Usually you're so tired that you will sleep through anything by the end of the day though!

    good location

    not really clean (red water; mosquito stains on the wall; balcony never cleand and always dirty) THE WORST; this hotel plays a double role as they are a hotel and a tour agency as the same time. They lied to us in order to force us to buy their services, which was on top of that more expensive than other tour agencies in the city. e.g: they told us there was no shuttle from yanshuo to the airport in guilin which is not true to force us to take their minibus to the airport (they are either liars or a bad hotel for not knowing this elementary information). Finally, they also told us that there was only one way to go see the rice terrace, (through their tour), which was crazy expensive, whereas a local told on the last day that there is another one cheaper, closer, and more authentic but of course the hotel has never mentioned it

    Everything contained in the description of this hotel on the booking website is true. I suppose the view from the hotel entrance was a little understated. Right across the street is a pedestrian walkway with an incredible view of Li River an amazing mountain landscape.

    The woman who works there, Vivian, is so helpful and has a very warm and friendly personality. She helped my parents and I plan our time there, took us out on bicycles, and never made us feel rushed. She has a lovey smile that is infectious. I would recommend this place highly because of her.

    Really helpful staff!! Their service is truly excellent --- everything will be arranged neatly+fast and they can organize substantial discounts for local tours.

    We rented a motor bicycle from the hotel (fuel included). The reception lady asked us to refuel it for her for 10 Yuan. Due to a communication problems at the fueling stations, it was refueled for 20 Yuan -- but the reception lady claimed we had not refueled it. Additionally, she tried to blame a broken part of the motor bicycle's on us which we clearly did not break. As we had become so happy with her & the rest of the staff, that was quite a downer...
