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

My best friend and I stayed 3 nights at the Phoenix Pagoda and it was absolutely wonderful! Upon request the hotel staff organized a car to pick us up at the airport in Guilin for our late night arrival from Shanghai. Even though it was the middle of the night when we arrived we were greeted warmly by Jerry, one... More

Stayed for three nights in March at the end of three weeks in China - this was definitely the high point. Beautiful setting, comfortable room, great food, and very hospitable hosts. Felt like staying with friends. A great place to relax.

Our four night three day stay was splendid . Tucked in amongst the mountains this place is a real retreat. Situated 6 km from town centre this retreat has several small villages in the near vicinity all within walking distance. Our room was possibly the smallest of all rooms was still very comfortable for the two of us. Our room... More

We had a pleasant stay at Fonglou during last week of April. My finance and I stayed there for 5 days 4 nights. We wanted more privacy so Lily arranged a top floor room for us with a discreet balcony. We really appreciated! For the activities, Lily took good care of arranging everything for us, car pick-up, show tickets, secret... More
