We spent 4 nights here in September 2014. For the most part, Gerd and his staff were very nice, and extremely helpful with booking excursions. The property is located a short distance out of Yangshuo - 10 minutes on the regular-scheduled shuttle, 20 minutes if you take the pleasant walk. We had a bit of an issue with our booking.... More

We always appreciate when guests leave an honest review about their stay with us. It really encourages us to keep up with the services that are very much appreciated and where we fail to improve our services where guests feel we should. However with this review I personally feel quite a bit cheated as it contains facts that are either... More

The hotel was great for what we wanted. It was 30min from town, so in a quiet area of Yangshuo. They provide an hourly shuttle service, give or take, otherwise its a 20-30min walk. Location - Great if you want to be away from chaos, bad if you want to be near bars and restaurants Service - Great. Helped with... More

One of the best beds of out Asia adventure. Cool shower/bathroom with views. Gorgeous views from rooftop. Interesting and funky spaces around the hotel. It's outside of town but has convenient shuttle hourly. Very nice staff. Yummy breakfast.

This is a good choice if you are looking at cleanness, comfort, family feel, quietness, countryside plus a reasonable budget around USD50-60 per night. Staff are friendly and gives a good choice of activities. I like European beer and we're happy to find the variety of Belgium beers.

We had a hard time getting there, since the bus station from GuangZhou was at the other side of the town. And we didnt know about the shuttles (we shld've read more). When we got there we had the feeling that it's very far from the west street, but the mini van shuttles made it easier to get around. The... More

Beautiful scenery, excellent service from the front desk staff, large seemingly comfy room. The first night was pleasant except for the broken toilet, which was promptly fixed. Second night people in the room above us were playing dice games (or something similar) and the noise made it difficult to sleep. Third night the toilet broke again. The surly staff member... More

Hello Nathan, We deeply apologise for the inconveniences the toilet related issues have caused and how this was poorly followed up by us on your third day. A toilet that clogged twice during one's stay is really ususual so we called in a professional who at first could not identify the problem so we decided to have it replaced by... More

I am amazed by some of the positive ratings on here. Yangshuo is a scruffy miserable town not worth the death threatening driving needed to get there from Guilin by bus or taxi. The roads are terrible and vehicles swerve over double yellow lines to avoid cavernous potholes and straight into on coming traffic. It is truly petrifying. Meanwhile, all... More

Not far away from Yangshuo town. Lovely hotel with all modern amenities. Deluxe rooms are quite large with lovely decor. No need to spend extra bucks for water as dispensers are stationed in every floor. Good view of Karst mountains from upper floors. The restaurant serves tasty and affordable food. The host Gerd is a lovely man; very attentive and... More

Don't be put off by its modest exterior in a village just outside Yangshuo, this is a great hotel with extremely comfortable, well equipped rooms and very helpful staff who speak flawless English. Far more luxurious inside than the outside would lead you to believe! Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds, a sitting area and wet-room bathrooms. Fresh linen daily.... More
