we booked this hotel thinking we had booked the yangshuo mountain retreat, which has great reviews. When we turned up at this place it was a total disaster, overground and run down , the rooms smelt damp and it was a place totally uncared for. We took one look around and then phoned another hotel to come and get us... More

I loved every bit of my stay there. The service is superb and the staff are warm and friendly people. They speak good English so you have no problem in case you can't speak the Chinese language. It is not too far away the heart of Yangshou. Thus you have time to rest away from the noise of the city... More

It's away from the city centre, which is nice to get away from the noise. Quite friendly and small. The food at the restaurant is reasonably good quality. It's family run and the staff are very friendly and helpful and will help you arrange the airport transfers and a ride into town to the shops and restaurants. Very close to... More

This has to be one of the worst hotels (perhaps the worst) we have stayed in over 4 decates of traveling. I think that some of the nicer reviews are probably meant for another similar sounding hotel, though we didn't stay in that hotel so can't be sure. This place did have friendly and helpful staff (who, btw, speak virtually... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here over China's Labor Day weekend. The staff was friendly, easy to understand, and allowed me to practice my Chinese with them as well. Transport was arranged when needed with no hassle, bicycle rental was a breeze, and the view from the balcony/deck was amazing. Do yourself a favor and bike the trails away from... More

Dear Guest, Thank you vary much for you feedback! We are extremely happy to hear that your stay with us was a pleasureable one!

We booked this hotel for 4 nights over the long Easter weekend, based on its #19 rating and favorable TripAdvisor reviews. (We ended up staying only 3 nights, then spent our final night somewhere else - see below). Either the past Tripadvisor reviews are outdated, something has changed, or we had poor rooms - but I feel the obligation to... More

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.
