My family and I recently stayed at this hotel. We stayed there for 3 nights after Christmas (Dec 27th, 28th and 29th) Upon arrival the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We had two rooms, my husband, our 15mth old daughter and myself in one room, and my husbands parents in the other. These rooms were lovely. They were warm... More

I just spent the most incredible 3 night extended weekend at the wonderful Phoenix Pagoda Fonglou Retreat among the beautiful mountains. I was treated so specially, and truly felt like a welcomed family member. I slept very well and ate like a king. This is a gem away from the noise of downtown. Just a short walk or bicycle ride...

This hotel is located two minutes from a major road in Fong Lou Village, a short taxi ride from Yangshuo, and out among rice fields and small farms. The room was rustic but comfortable and clean, the food was authentic, the meals substantial, and the quality excellent. Best of all were the helpful staff who spoke excellent English. Our special...

We stayed here for the last three nights of our China trip, it provided us with a quiet relaxing stay set amidst a gorgeous landscape. Room was large and the view from our balcony divine, a gorgeous river 50 metres away, this was a great spot to observe local life. Shower pressure okay but wouldn't call it strong. Staff extremely...

loved the food (braised pumpkin!), the staff was very helpful. Mt. bike rentals were easy and decent bikes (just check them before you leave). It was great to wake up to incredible views. We also enjoyed being away from the crowds and noise. You do need to take a taxi into down (40-50 RBM). However you can do a lot... More

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
