I stayed here as part of a tour group. What can I say about the place? It's a complete dump, if you find yourself here something in your life has gone terribly wrong. How do I start? The room completely stunk. Not just a little bit of a smell. It was horrid. It was damp, there was mould on the... More

This was the worst hotel or hostel I stayed in during my month-long trip to China. Although the sheets had been changed, the room and bathroom had obviously not been cleaned before we moved in. Hairs and toothpaste etc. everywhere. Also, the tap of the sink was loose, the shower had no curtain so that the toilet seat was wet... More

Staff were nice and the bedroom was clean. Good air conditioning, powerful hot showers. Great location. Nice roof top terrace. Staff didn't speak English but really tried to help us as much as possible.

This hotel needs major refurbishment. Do not accept a room on 3f. All the rooms have a serious smell of mould. You can, however, rectify this with incense. Shower was adequate, at least there wasn't water all over the bathroom floor. Air conditioning worked well. Do not leave your windows open as all kinds of insects will get in. Bed... More

Yangshuo is a very beautiful place, I think this hotel is well located, I really love the views from the balcony. The room was regular, didn´t´have any problems. I liked to stay at night at the balcony having a beer and playing cards with the people I met from Gadventures tour.

This dump is in a convenient location. Handy for the water front and shopping. But it is still a dump. The decor is straight out of the 1930s and this is not meant as a compliment. The rooms smell and the entire hotel is an unpleasant place to spend any time. Intrepid should speedily eliminate this as one of their... More

Stayed here as part of the Intrepid Travel China tour. This was a dingy poorly lit hotel with old stairways carpet and a strong odour on entering the bedroom each time. Toilet blocked on 2 occasions. The location is however fantastic, with terrace views of the river and Karst mountains. Shopping streets and bars within 1 minute walk from the... More

This hotel is in a marvellous location if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of Yangshou being played out in the street below. The traders pack up late and are back early in the morning, so if you are after peace and quiet it would be best to look elsewhere. The biggest problem with this hotel is the attitude of... More

Of all the hotels I have stayed in and of all the hotels that were used in China, the Imperial City hotel would have to be the worst. The hotel is located on the river and the whole establishment had a damp smell and feel. The front foyer is shared with over a dozen fish tanks set up for aquatic... More

We stayed at the Imperial City Hotel as part of a G Adventure Tour Aug 2013. First impressions were not great, we were given rooms that was like a backpackers, the room was not finished the sliding door to the outside was hard to lock, the bathroom was so small you could not sit on the toilet properly as there...
