This is a hidden gem. I hesitate to write a review, in case it causes the villa to lose it's authenticity and charm due to hordes descending upon it! Our room had picture windows with amazing views of the karsts in the background and farming ponds, complete with water buffalo in the foreground, right in front of the villa. We... More

We stayed at the hotel during off season and were practically the only guests in the hotel. The room and the bathrooms were really nice and very clean, decorated in a unique way. The view was amazing (it's definitely worth booking a delux room). The hotel is not in the city, but since we were looking for a relaxing stay... More

When we got there, we found the location and staff to be excellent. Location is abt 20mins fr centre (a plus if you're craving some peace and quiet). The view from the rooms and the... More

I loved this hotel. We had an amazing view and it was the most relaxing part of my two week trip to China. Staff was very helpful in setting up the bamboo river cruise and provided bikes for a small fee. Was very far from the actual town center but I did not care. Would absolutely stay here again. Pros:... More

Located on the banks of the Yulong River, overlooking dream-like tree covered mountains/hills, this intimate boutique style hotel, under new ownership is the perfect choice to experience Yangshuo without having to stay in the (in my opinion) over touristy town center. The owner, Shaolee and her staff are very friendly, and will do all within their means to make your... More

We recently stayed here. Absolutely great location. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Place is very traditional. Food at their Rooftop Restaurant very tasty and cooked to order. Yangshuo so so tranquil. We would definitely recommend this place to stay for a quieter location where you can just relax. You can either hire a bike for here. Or easily get... More

I took my girlfriend here to ask her to marry me! She had just come off a 14hr right from California and I had to pick a place I knew would make another hour on a plane worth it-and the hidden dragon helped make this happen. I called the management ahead of our arrival asking for flowers and chocolate in... More

The staff was super helpful and took very good care of us. Arranging transportation and tours through them was easy and efficient. I like this hotel’s off the town tranquil location and the beautiful surrounding. There are many restaurants within 15-minute's walk from the hotel. I did not experience any issue with hot water or AC. The bathroom needs some... More
