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

Stayed here two nights. Room was underwhelming. Front door got stuck on the ground, bed seemed to have permanent soft spot (or broken spring), and there was no separate space for the shower in the bathroom. That being said, I did book the cheapest room - so your mileage may vary. Some of the other rooms appeared to be nicer... More

After having read the great reviews here and going to the Riverview after staying in a 5-star hotel in Guilin, the room came as quite a shock. No doubt one gets what one pays for but it didn't appear that well maintained or clean. Perhaps it was our luck but our bathroom was rather dimly lit and damp. The shower... More

Located across the street from the riverfront promenade and a couple blocks away from the bustle of West Street, this hotel is quiet and convenient. Even the cheap rooms in the back have views of the limestone pinnacles that tower over the town. The front rooms on the upper floors are very nice and overlook the river through leafy trees.... More
