If the rooms were better, I would give this place a 4 or 5. Likes: Location! Very close to the night market in Yangshuo. The noise didn't bother me at all. The view of the river outside the hotel is gorgeous! Tours - Lucy was our tour guide during our biking tour! We went biking to the bamboo rafts and... More

River view Inn is in a great position in the west st area. The rooms are a good size and generally clean . Make sure your room has a shower recess if that is what you are a custom to. The staff speak English which made life easy for us. The food was good and the breakfast was good

The room was so dirty we had to change hotels. There was Mold on walls and everywhere in the bathroom. The shower was so bad you did not want to use it. There was dirt all over the walls and it looked like it has not been cleaned at all. Do not look on top of the cupboard in the... More

Our second stay at the River View Inn and it didn't disappoint. Very centrally located near West Street facing the Li River in a great location.cxx We took three rooms accommodating 6 of our family staying for three nights plus our dog. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced and for us much nicer than some of the larger hotels... More

This is not a 5 star stay, it doesn't claim to be, but It is the perfect base to begin your walking, rafting or cycling adventure in the most amazing scenery. The hotel is run by friendly, helpful staff and is clean and quiet for the most part being away from the main part of town. This was our second... More

This isn't the prettiest Hotel in the world but the location is great, the staff helpful and attentive and at such a low price it is excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it, but making sure that people weren't expecting 5 star. the river, as per the name, is just across the road and... More

We got a spacious family room with a balcony overlooking the street facing the river bank. The room is functional and simple. As our room was located in the 2nd floor (the hotel has 2 floors), we had to carry our heavy weight suitcases up through the stairs as there is no elevators there. The hotel itself is located at...

Vivienne, an English speaking staff member, added tremendous value to our stay by making suggestions and recommendations that were great. We hired her husband (not an English speaker) as driver and guide - he took us to the major sites and great restaurants that would be hard to find if you were not a local all at very reasonable prices.

After spending two nights somewhere a little out of town it was good to stay somewhere much more convenient. The location is great, alongside the river as the name suggests and just around the corner from all the hustle and bustle of the town. The staff where very helpful and spoke very good english. We also hired bikes from the... More

This hotel is in an ideal position when staying in Yangshuo. It is directly opposite the river and close the the shopping area of West Street. The hotel is a little tired. I must say that it one of the few hotels that we stayed in during our trip to China that had "soft Western style beds". The morning breakfast... More
