The hotel is located slightly out of town, close enough to walk (15 minutes) and only 40RMB in a taxi, the hotel also offers a free shuttle service to town and back between 9am and 10pm! The room was big enough with fine facilities and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the scenery! Food in the hotel was also excellent with... More

We were referred to YVR by Yangshuo Insider. Gerd, the proprietor of this lovely village hotel greeted us by email within 24 hours of our booking. Since our last trip to China was over 25 years ago, we were unsure of how traveling in the new China would be. 40+ email later, Gerd assisted us with all the traveling, pick... More

The idea of this hotel seems to have been great - the view, the surrounding nature, the hospitality. However now as per July 2015 it is quite old - it doesn't look as the pics and also the rooms are not cleaned well. The breakfast is delicious, the view and the tranquility are great, the staff is very kind and... More

Beautiful place to stay, nice and quiet. Very friendly people, great food, clean rooms.. such a quiet place to stay, and perfect to get some rest or visit the rest of the town. It was the perfect place to stay, in our opinion!

The quietness was a lovely contrast to the hustle and bustle of West Street. Our room was spacious and very clean with impressive karst formations views from the window and balcony. The staff were kind and friendly with enough English spoken to be helpful. We ate two breakfasts and two dinners in the hotel restaurant and the food and service... More

The Village Retreat was about a 20 minute walk out of the hustle and bustle that is downtown Yangshuo so it is a nice peaceful place to stay after the day's events. The staff are very helpful, their English is quite good. Our room was comfortable with adequate air conditioning too. The bathroom layout was a bit weird but not... More
