Quiet, clean hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the Li River with the karst scenery beyond. Good food, pleasant staff, and air conditioning that could deal with the high temperatures (although the operating instructions took some interpreting). About 30 minutes walk from the town (and the boat moorings), but this is what should be expected for a "retreat" (and taxis... More

If you are expecting a Shangri-La or Intercontinental you will be disappointed. Yes the property is a bit 'tired' and could do with some repairs but the room we had was clean and spacious with a view to die for. We had a tiny private balcony and enjoyed a bottle of wine one night at sunset. The king size bed... More

We recently spent 3 nights in Yangshuo at the Li River Retreat. Our pre arranged transfer from Guilin Airport to the Retreat went smoothly as was our pre-visit communication which gave us confidence in our choice prior to arrival. What a great choice by my partner. The Retreat IS peaceful. As previous reviews indicate the Retreat is about 1 plus... More

Located in a peaceful river setting just out of town, 15 min walking one way into town, 15 min the other way to a great swimming spot. Rooms are large, well furnished and maintained, if rather in staid traditional Chinese style. Common areas look spartan in parts. Not so good was that the reception staff could hardly muster bored indifferent... More

Close enough to the city of Yangshou to cycle/walk to it, but far enough to avoid the tourist crowds and noise. This is a charming place with beautiful views, spacious rooms, kingsize beds, A/C (much needed in Yangshou in August...) and a good restaurant which serves a good continental breakfast; but we also enjoyed some nice Chinese dishes here, like...

Pleasant room, great view, wonderful staff, good food, you get the picture. We were told by neighbour’s who had visited that they did not want to leave the Li River Retreat. We stayed at the Retreat on their recommendation and found it to be one of the best places in China. All of China. And we did not want to... More

I feels so lucky and relieved that I have chosen the right place to stay during my holiday with my family. I traveled with my husband, 3 kids, my sister and my parents. All of us enjoyed the stay very much. Rooms is big, staff are friendly, fried rice is yummy... my parents eat that almost every day during our... More

I recently stayed at the Li River Retreat with my two young daughters, ages 6 and 11. The hotel is set up like a traditional inn and is a few km outside of town, which is part of its charm. (Yangshuo is quite crowded and noisy). Without a doubt - the view of the Gumdrop Mountains and Li River were... More

Li River Retreat is peacefull and just far enough from the busy centre of Yangshuo. The staff speaks good English and is very helpfull. The restaurant is quite good and also offers western food. A continental breakfast is also on the menu. Rooms are spacious and luckily have aircondition (it can be HOT with high humidity outside. Better take enough... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Li River Retreat in hopes of getting some rest and relaxation away from the city in a natural place. This hotel did not disappoint us. At the Li River Retreat you really are away from the noise, traffic, and bustle. The scenery is very beautiful. While the view of the river itself may... More
