Not to be confused with the Mountain Retreat - which is what we did, only to be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Far less touristy as its a tiny bit off the generally beaten path, much closer to Moon Hill than town. Incredibly helpful, welcoming and characterful, with a central courtyard where the staff sit merrily chatting away all day... More

We had a really great stay at the Mountain View Retreat - the hotel is perfectly located for some of the main attractions in Yangshuo (Moon Hill, Dragon Cave, Li River etc) and yet still felt peaceful and relaxed. The room was large, clean and had everything you could need. The restaurant at the hotel had a wide range of... More

I spent just over a week at the Mountain View Retreat in Yangshuo and strongly recommend it to other travellers. The retreat is perfectly located near all the key attractions (Moon Hill, dragon cave, mud and thermal baths, Banyan tree, river etc) but still maintains the feeling of being nestled among the mountains. The greenery starts at the back of... More

the hotel staff was great and room are comfortable (they look better on pics). The best part is that it is very close to the key "tourist" places but still just far enough from the crowded west street. Best is to hire a cycle from the hotel itself and head out into the biking tacks.

The hotel is very close to all the attractions Yangshuo has to offer. Very cosy and clean rooms. If you want to live right in the middle of Yangshuo's scenery, this is the place to go.
