We spent four nights at the Outside Inn and found it to be excellent. The food was pretty good too, although we ate in quite a few places in the area which I can also recommend - The Giggling Tree (excellent crispy bacon and eggs) and The Tea Cozy (try the beer duck). Both are within walking distance. We had... More

We stayed 3 nights here and it was great. It is an interesting property based on old farmers houses in a small village right in the middle of the stunning kharst scenery. Our room was spacious with a.c. which is needed as it was very warm and humid. The staff are really good and extremely helpful, the food is a... More

Yuangshuo Outside Inn is a great place to escape from the touristic spots around Yuangshuo and experience the 'real China'. You sleep in authentic, old Chinese farmer houses, and the rooms are clean, large and provide everything you need. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Tip: explore the area around Yuangshou with your bike.

The Outside Inn is hidden at the end of a road in a little village, which you can reach in 10 min by bike (which you can hire at the hotel) from Yangshuo. The more than 200 years old buildings are nicely renewed and have still their old charme. The rooms are clean and the showers and toilets, too. We... More

What a wonderful surprise this hotel was! Although it looks rustic from the outside this hotel has everything, Roland and his staff could not do more to help the guests. They not only run the hotel with wonderful care and attention to detail. They can help you arrange trips and things to do for the whole time you are there,... More

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
