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

I had a really pleasant stay in River View Hotel. Yangshuo is quite a small city but I really liked the location! Very charming place with a very nice balcony just in front of the Li River. Next to the hotel there is a small local market where you can buy souvenirs and stuff and it is also 5 min... More

The rooms here were a little damp, but this is to be expected everywhere in yangshuo. The staff was friendly and helped us book several really nice trips. They even speak english well here. You can order several kinds of breakfast menus, the ones we tried were really good, including fresh orange juice! The adjacent restaurant was also very nice,... More

Family of 4, we had 2 twin rooms which had enough room, comfy firm bed, clean bathroom and free wifi. All of the staff were extremely friendly and provided excellent service throughout. Great location on the river and less than 5 minute walk to West St. Food at restaurant was consistently good with plenty of choice at reasonable price.
