This hotel is an old style Chinese building based around an internal courtyard. The room was very pleasant, and the view from the window was mind blowing as it faced the karst peaks only a few hundred metres away. The receptionist (there was only one while we were there) was exceptional. With quiet good English she organized everything for us,... More

Hotel location is good, however you do need to rely on taxis into Yangshuo itself. Very local service = average in other countries. Staff were pleasant enough. Bathrooms could have been a little cleaner and less moldy, but bedrooms were ok. Our room was very noisy early in the morning with trucks going past as there was a lot of... More

Hotel is strategically located within the scenic corridor. Staffs are friendly and room is clean. Only complaint was the bed bug or whatever that bit me all over my feet during my sleep. It's been a week and I am still scratching!

This hotel was in a beautiful, quiet location, just on the outskirts of Yangshuo. It is actually in a separate village. A brief stroll through the quiet village leads you to peaceful cultivated valleys. The room was clean and as we expected from the photographs online. The bathroom was not as nice as we expected, and the tap water smelled... More

This is definitely the most nicest and most friendly hotel we have been from the 6 hotels we changed in our journey through China from Hong Kong to Beijing!.We booked the hotel having seen the views from the rooms but were so satisfied with everything else that we would highly recomend this hotel to everybody. After staying in Guilin for... More

Located on a small dirt road about 5 miles out of town, this hotel offered great views. Greeted by name on a welcoming board, we were shown our room, upstairs with large windows overlooking rice paddies. I don't understand another reviewer stating road noise, our room overlooked the road and only about 5 cars went by during our entire stay.... More

Avoid this hotel if you can. While the staff are friendly, you have leave the water running for 45 mins before it gets luke warm. The bathroom was mouldy - clearly have never been introduced to Exit Mould. We arrived off season during winter and also found the heating didn't really heat up the room. There was a consistent bad... More

I had a nice and relaxing stay at the Hidden Dragon Villa. I spent a night here, after spending my first 2 nights in Yanshou on West St. It's was a great change of pace and I would definitely stay here again if I was back in Yangshou. My room was large and comfortable. The view from my windows was... More

My husband and I just returned from a month's travels across China. When we arrived in Yangshou we were really tired. We were met at the door by a lovely young woman who spoke English. She served us tea and homemade chocolates while she checked us in. There was a sign by the door welcoming us by name. Our room... More
