We were upgraded to this hotel by our tour company. We have been told this is the best hotel in the area too. Whilst it was ok it really wasn't 5*. The hotel in itself was nice however it lacked a basic 5* finish. When we got to our room it hadn't been cleaned that well. There was hair on... More

Really great setting on the Lijiang River and a short walk to the pedestrian West Street with its restaurants, banks, shopping, bicycle hire, curios and general mayhem. The hotel lobby is very large and impressive. Check-in was chaotic as many travellers arrive at the same time off the river ferries from Guilin. Was booked into a non-view room that looked... More

Chinese food! Western food! Local food! AND CHEESE! I only regret I had one day at this hotel; their breakfast spread was delicious. Great location, less than 10 minutes from West Street. Two floors were under construction and roped off, but there was no noise pollution from that. Rooms - Had a rain shower, bathtub, and floor length mirror. No... More

The size of the hotel is a big surprise, I expected a small, quaint green colored hotel. It has a huge, impressive lobby. The rooms are a very good size although we has to crane our necks to see the promised river view from the balcony. Hotel breakfast is disappointing, perhaps best to go out to eat. The souvenir shops... More

As an overnighter this was a great hotel to choose well located just outside the madness of the Main Street the hotel looks after its guests irrespective of how long your staying Nicely appointed clean updated rooms with good air conditioning and a hearty breakfast Just the job

The hotel has a large and attractive lobby. The bedroom and bathroom were a good size. Our room had a view towards the river but it was not an exceptional view as the room not at all close to the river and so the river was mostly in the distance and also it was mostly a docking area for the...

This hotel is in a location with lots of local restaurants and convenient stores around, and 10-minute walk to the well known West Street. The room is classy, clean and quiet, although my room doesn't have a view, I'm glad I picked this one. If I have to have a bone to pick with this hotel, it's that their wi-fi... More

Green Lotus Hotel is a good location to explore Yangshuo and within easy walking distance of the spectacular light show. The hotel room was comfortable and clean, with staff being helpful and enthusiastic. The hotel's general facilities were good. The breakfast range was rather limited for a Western diet, but had a wide variety of Chinese breakfast options.

I found this hotel just average. Check-in was relatively easy. We had asked for non-smoking rooms and according to one of the staff members, they were all sold out. There was only one floor of non-smoking rooms in the main building. We had made reservations for 4 rooms and 3 out of the 4 rooms had a strong stench of... More

Location is excellent, short walk from the markets, that you walk through after getting of the boat. The ambiance was excellent and the rooms very spacious. We were given a complimentary drink voucher on arrival but you were only allowed to have orange juice, not even tea! The beds are to die for - the most comfortable bed in all... More
