If you want to get away from the tourist, the pollution, the noise and crowds then this place is for you! Not only did Ronald and his staff go out of their way to insure that we had a great time, but the peaceful atmosphere of Outside Inn itself ensured that we left feeling rested, and ready for more travel...

We slept on night on this really nice place. If you like the European standards melt with Chinese standards hence it is the perfect place to go for backpackers and couples. I recommend to choose this place for the view, the really charming and authentic rooms, the quiet atmosphere and for the food (especially the dumplings, the amazing apple pie... More

Absolutely loved this place, a beautiful country home from home clean bright and really friendly helpful staff. I cannot fault this Hotel at all, I enjoyed every minute of my stay there and cannot wait to go back again. There is nowhere else you should stay if you go to Yangshuo! I actually felt sorry for all the other travellers... More

We wanted a place where we could wake up and the kids would be entertained by the great outdoors. Plenty of safe contained spaces for the kids to follow chickens, watch water buffalo, and run freely. The food was the best Chinese food we've had, though we prefer their Western breakfast and that's hard to find in China. Ronald and... More

The Yangshuo Outside Inn is a very special place to stay and I think quite unique. The Inn is like a little village itself and is a very relaxing place to stay. Old ancient village houses are furnished in a simple but thoughtful style. The surrounding landscape is stunning and very quite because there are nearly no other tourists. My... More

We explore that it is very hard to find a nice and QUIET hotel to relax in yangshuo. China is crowded almost everywhere in the east. Espacially yangshuo, coralgem in the national holiday week in oktober. Even in this time there was a place that was so nice and peaceful. The Outside Inn Hotel is just 3 km out of... More

Ronald, the owner, and Wendy who works at the front desk are simply lovely people who are honest, helpful and friendly. In fact all the staff are. Ronald has a great knowledge of the area. The beds were not the hardest we have slept in in China but they are very firm. The hot water was hot but lacked pressure.... More

What a find! After spending a couple of noisy nights in downtown Yangshuo, we found the beautiful Outside Inn nestled in a small village a short bike ride from downtown Yangshuo. You can smell the flowers, hear the birds sing and really experience why we came to this area - the stunning karst mountains. Outside Inn has taken some of... More

This place is simply amazing. Clean rooms, nice staff, increadible view, good restaurant (a little pricey, as is every restaurant in the village though) and very nice view. You easily understand why Herbert, the owner, decided to settle down there, this place is amazing. The fact that it is outside the city (in a village 5 km from the center)... More

Very relaxed and friendly place in local Chinese style but with western comforts! Our whole family loved it - amazing good value meals. Wendy and the staff could not have been more helpful organising trips to the rice fields and light show - both brilliant. Cycling around the local villages with karst scenery and taking the bamboo raft was spectacular.... More
