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

After staying closer to the city centre, we moved here for a quieter location. There is a fair amount of new hotel construction still going on in the area; this hotel is up and running. Built around a central courtyard, it has a lovely period feel about it; we loved the rooftop, immediately above the restaurant, as a place to... More

Avoid. Just avoid. Read the one-star reviews--they say it all. They need to invest significantly in upgrading what could be a lovely place. Fortunately they were honorable and agreed to let Hotels.com give us a full refund. We left instantly.

We stayed here for three nights. It is a quiet peaceful spot 5km out of town. Our room is nicely furnished in traditional Chinese style and it is lovely and warm. This is important in December. Breakfast is not included in our room price but it us good value and views from the roof terrace restaurant are pretty amazing. The... More

The Hidden Dragon Villa was the first of two hotels our family of 4 stayed in during our trip to Yangshuo. An evening arrival, we were greeted warmly by the reception staff with a welcome sign posting our names (a charming little touch). The layout is an open-air central foyer with entry to upstairs rooms via staircase, and a restaurant/bar... More

We made our third trip to Yangshuo during Golden Week (early October 2014) and again stayed at the Hidden Dragon. Others have commented on the beautiful view. We haven't tired of it and continue to enjoy watching the sun go down from the rooftop garden over a drink. This trip was bracketed by business, and we chose Hidden Dragon so... More

Granted, the bed is rock hard, and you'll have to wait a couple om mins for hot water. It could have been cleaner. But the share hospitality and warmth you'll get is what makes this hotel the little gem that it is. Eat at the rooftop restaurant. Ask the manager for the rice wine (overlook his attempt to convince you... More

We heard from friends that we should go to straight to Yangshuo instead of Guilin, and by a coincidence(actually because of the pictures posted of the view from the hotel rooms) we ended up in Hidden Dragon Villa just 5 km outside of Yangshuo. What a great decision! The Hidden Dragon is a quiet nice small family hotel, where we... More

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
