I liked the place, its view over the hills, its remote location from the city (we have a car though, I would not recommend it if you don't drive). Rooms are well furnished, clean, no smell. Our pet was indeed welcome. Wifi was fast enough. Regrets : no fridge and no safe in the room but then I remembered it's... More

Rooms were fairly basic but adequate, food not particularly great but ok. Beautiful views over river and valley below with helpful staff which arranged transfers and taxis. The taxi costs of staying in this hotel were quite high due to the remote location.

Somewhat remote which was why we choose it, but problematic with a taxi being required for any expedition out of the hotel, it is high on a hill so make sure not to get a tuk tuk home, as we had to get out and walk up the hill as the tuk tuk motor was not powerful enough to drive... More

My friend and I stayed at the Dongling Resort during our tour of China. The resort itself is in the most spectacular setting with beautiful scenery. The girl who works in reception is absolutely lovely and speaks good English. The weather wasn't good whilst we were staying and so we couldn't do the boat trip we wanted to from Guilin.... More

We did went during the PEAK OF PEAK season...the labors day in China! Hence, I noticed a almost 100% increase in price. That might me more picky :) Overall, the location of the hotel is a double edge sword. It is so far away from the town center that you basically stuck here if you don't have a vehicle, yet,... More

After two weeks in Beijing, we had a fantastic stay at the Yangshuo Dongling Resort, which was the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle in the city. We had two river-view rooms, which were incredibly comfortable with gorgeous views. Air conditioning was excellent and cut the humidity from outside, and the room was clean and relaxing. We were so... More

We were two couples: me my girlfriend and my parents. We stayed there one night. Simply amazing. The hotel is immersed in the natural landscape. The staff speak English and helped us to organize our trip the day after. They even offered us the Chinese new year eve Dinner. When we left we were really satisfied about the service.

Nice tranquil place, probably ok for more than a few days stay, had some trouble convincing taxis to bring us back to hotel without paying a fortune! It has to be said, the view from the place is amazing, we had a very simple, nice and clean room with a terrace (although it was August and way too hot to... More

The staff can speak English and allowed us to rent scooters. They were able to suggest really nice trips around Yangshuo. The resort is really nice, clean and quiet, the landscape is wonderful. The kitchen offers typical dishes: good option in case of rain but in the town you can find something better. They are really flexible and the manage... More
