We stayed at the mountain retreat for 3 nights during a tour of China. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and made us feel welcome. The hotel was a perfect location for a family bike ride up the river. We were also able to enjoy a walk through the local villages to moon hill and the mud caves... More

We just arrived home from a wonderful one week stay at Yangshou Mountain Retreat. We arrived on a misty, cool afternoon and we enjoyed tea while sitting in front of the fire they made for us in the fire place. The location on the Yulong RIver and at the base of the karst mountains is simply beautiful. We woke up... More

We spent five nights at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat in April 2015. We were welcomed late at night with warm smiles and tea which really set the tone for our entire visit. Our room (specifically requested when we booked) had two bedrooms and looked out onto the river. It was comfortable and had everything we needed, including space for our... More

Small hotel situated on the edge of the Yulong River with views of the karst mountains. Our cozy room had a huge picture window looking out to the mountains. The restaurant was staffed with happy, helpful waiters and the food was hot, tasty, and plentiful. Meals on the terrace beside the river were especially scenic. The front desk was helpful... More

Far too expensive for what you get. Although clean, the room is extremely basic. You are close to one of the main roads so there is a lot of road noise. We paid extra for a balcony but overlooked some rough fields and the hotel's clothes lines. I've stayed in similar with no problem but not for more than 30-50... More

If you want to be away from the crowds but have easy access to getting around by bicycle or taxi, this is a perfect choice. While not a spa, it felt equally as relaxing and peaceful! On sunny days, we lounged on our balcony or the river side patio watching bamboo rafts meander their way downriver. On rainy days we... More

One of the friends I travelled with found this highly rated hotel on trip advisor. We stayed 4nights in March. Arrived at Guilin airport morning of the 24th and unfortunately no driver was there to meet us (we had arranged for a car through the hotel for 300 rmb). We were able to call the hotel from the airport and... More

A very comfortable hotel along the Yulong River. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is great. But above all it is the stunning view of all the bamboo rafts passing by on the river and the beautiful shapes of the Carst Mountains.

For the location alone this place would be hard to beat. The food is superb and the staff were faultless too. Exceptionally good value. A great base for exploring the surrounding countryside. The best place I stayed during my time in China.

This is not a luxury room-- it's a clean, comfortable, airy room with a wonderful porch overlooking the tranquil river. We ate both breakfast and dinner outside by the river; the setting may have enhanced the meal but all of the food was the best we ate in China. The service was exceptional-- so friendly and helpful and everyone was... More
