If you like the 90's, you will like this hotel. The beds are okay, but the floor was not very clean. Also some things were broken. There is no maintenance on the bikes, so be carefull if you want to rent some. The airconditioning works great. You will have a cool room, when you wan it. The staff (Lily and... More

There are lots of hotels in Yangshuo, but Phoenix pagoda is the best one I've ever stayed. It's not a big hotel with many rooms, but each room is quite clean and has nice view. I like the servers in the hotel. They are enthusiastic, polite, and passionate about guiding me to have the most relaxing and nice trip in... More

Everything was tastefully decorated, and the staff were great! They prepared all our delicious meals, both Western and Chinese dishes, helped us with each day's adventures, and made sure all our needs were met. You really cannot find better service anywhere in China, and especially in the bustling tourist city of Yangshuo. The location was also perfect. Just a short... More

We spent 2 nights early June. Amazing scenery, natural material furniture, simple and elegant, We were worried that it might be too remote but it was just perfect: quiet but not completely isolated. You could eat at the hotel restaurant (very good and reasonable prices) but also at 2 restaurants nearby or walk or bike to other places including river,... More

We just spent 4 nights at the Yangshou Phoenix Pagoda Retreat. Although it was100 F we felt right at home. The room was a good size, clean simple, and cool! The wonderful staff helped us book tours, provide transport rom the Guilin airport, and generally were gracious and very attentive. If you are looking for a quiet out-of-the-way spot for... More

Perfect small,peaceful place to start beautiful bike tours and eat good food surrounded by Karst mountains and vegetables gardens. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean with nice views. Decent mountains bikes and street bikes can be rented here. Recommend mountain bikes for the scenic, off the beaten track bike routes.

Clean, good sized simple rooms. great location - outside of town is much better, and great service. Bike hire is good. very close to the main caves and the bamboo raft landing. Rooftop dining is a great way to see sunset. Food is simple but good quality and fast. They are building an extra building at the back so part... More

Pretty hotel in a rustic style, set in some amazingly beautiful countryside. The rooms are clean and charming, the view fantastic and the food some of the best in China- truly they produced Chinese and Western food to the same wonderful level. But as ever, what makes a holiday great, is the service you get and here at the Pheonix... More
