We have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel and couldn't fault it in any way. The views were amazing, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. The restaurant is open from 7.30am till10pm and during that time you can get delicious sandwiches, snacks or a full meal for next to nothing. We had... More

We rented 3 rooms at the Li River Retreat for me and my family of 5 and my brother and niece at the end of March. We had a very positive experience at the hotel, and with its staff. The location was great for us for a few reasons: a) we had 4 children in tow and we felt the... More

Hotel is about 20 minutes walk from Yangshou centre which is a tourist town. This location is very peaceful with lovely views over the river. Restaurant is good (better than those we tried in town) and well priced. Owner is Australian and he and his staff were great at suggesting and organising trips for us. We did cycle/ bamboo raft...

There are a lot of nice places to stay in Yangshuo, but I found the location of this hotel ideal. It's right on the Li River, and there are views from every room and balcony of the river and mountains. Some of the other places reviewed at this site are pretty far out of town, and I liked being just... More

I am traveling around Guilin with my mum and my 3 young children (15 months, 4 and 6), so i really needed a kids friendly hotel! The hotel is facing the river and the peaks, great scenery!! And 15 min away from yangshuo, so quiet! Everything here is great : they sent us a taxi to pick up us after... More

We stayed here and very much enjoyed the hotel and the staff. The room was large and comfortable. The views from the room were great and from the rooftop, spectacular. Breakfast was very nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Wish we had stayed at the hotel and in Yangshuo at least a second night. The town and... More

A unique spot with fantastic views over the Li River, a quite hotel away from the chaotic Yangshuo. We stayed a few nights, and it was a great break. The staff is very helpful, the rooms are beautifully done and all of them have a very big terrace, and the food is pretty good (Chinese and Western). We had a... More

We visited Yangshuo during Chinese New Year festivities, so the town was very crowded and hectic with tourists. Staying at the Li River Retreat was a nice break from the pace of the town, and the restaurant more than satisfied our needs for both Chinese and Western food. We had a great time chatting with Alf, the owner, who even... More

After a great trip up the Li River we settled here for a few days peace and quiet. Very nice hotel away from the madness of Yangshuo and its beer gardens. Room nice and comfortable, great terrace for sitting out eating breakfast or just lounging. Lovely gardens absolutely full of butterflies. Plenty of walking if you're into that sort of... More

My friend and I stayed here in December 2013. We had a wonderful time there and would highly recommend it. First, this is a very nice hotel, but it is not a super-fancy 5 star hotel. It's a very nice, but if you are the type of traveler where luxury is first and foremost in your mind, then this may... More
