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

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

Just spent 3 nights at the Yangshuo Village Retreat, and I must say it was one of the best vacations I've had. The hotel is located just a little bit outside the town centre, which was good because the town itself can get quite noisy and busy. It's a little bit out of the way, but you could arrange for...

We stayed in an awful hotel for one night in Xing Ping (CTN Li River) and then came here. What a refreshing change. The staff speak english, the hotel is charming, lovely food and wine (particularly for China) and good boutique style rooms at less than 400 yuan. Really good value with a free shuttle bus into town. I would... More

We stayed 7 nights in March 2014 following a visit to our son in Hong Kong. We were a little anxious about our first visit to China but we needn't have worried. Gerd responded immediately to my request to organise a taxi from Guilin Airport and from being greeted there with a sign with our names we never looked back.... More
