The rooms are spacious but rather basic, the bathroom even more. If you do not expect any luxury you will enjoy the tranquility of this guesthouse. Yangshuo is a few kms. down the road and can only be reached by taxi (or bicycle), fortunately the food served at the porch is delicious and not expensive. The personnel is very friendly... More

Couldn't wish for a better place to spend my days here in Yangshuo. Just a few kilometers outside of the city of Yangshuo lies this amazing place behind a few houses close to the road. Ronald, the owner, is super friendly and he gives you a lot of great tips over things to do here during your stay in Yangshuo,... More

The Outside Inn is a real find. It sounded attractive in the Lonely Planet Guide, and it outshone that write-up. The guest house rooms, simple and functional – including AC and shower - are in two-story adobe buildings. The area is hot and humid but we skipped the AC and used the fan and the mosquito nets; we acclimated very... More

Lovely renovated farm houses in a smallish village, tucked away out of sight. We only stayed one night so didn't have much chance to explore but the accomodation has been thoughtfully renovated, and the furniture quality and room standards are high. I had a massage in my room which was organised by the owners, I think foot massage is also... More

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...
