“An OK Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This hotel provides basic but clean accommodation. Location is central. Rooms are getting a bit tired and could do with an update. Complimentary WIFI available. Western style breakfast was OK. Staff service was fine.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed two nights at this hotel -it seems mostly suited for conferences and business functions but worked fine for leisure guets as well. Although staff does not speak much English, we managed to find information otherwise as concierge could not understand us. Our room was comfortable, clean, had a nice bathroom and balcony. We had a nice view of the river and surrounding mountains.

The hotel is not far from popular West street so it is easy to go out and find a place to eat. The breakfast at the hotel is a buffet with a good variety and all food has labels to understand what the dish is. There is a good choice of dishes from chinese and western cuisine.

This hotel does not have much personnality, but has other benefits that make up for it. It also has a nice outdoor pool and a small gym. The beds are very hard but I managed to get a very good night sleep. Hotel is very quiet, no noise disturbance which is nice.

Stayed in the hotel together with my wife for 3 days on vacation. The location is good and we got large clean room. However we booked the hotel on booking.com and when we arrived they have raised the daily rate in 15% saying this is the current rate and asked $12 more for breakfast.... The frontdesk manager told me that we can choose to leave or stay on the new terms as he doesn't have the authority to change anything and this is the hotel policy.... breafast is more Chinese style......

The relatively new Green Lotus is very conveniently located - along the Li River with great views and a short walk to the bustling West Street for shopping and food. The hotel is very large. The rooms are average modern and perfectly acceptable except for the beds - which are hard as rocks. Our tour guide told us this was true in all area hotels due to the extreme moisture in the area but I'm not sure about that. We did not have a great night's sleep because of this. Breakfast buffet had a number of choices and was adequate but not overwhelming.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the end of the corridor nearest the River for great views.

Best hotel in town. Location is very central and you can walk to the boats 10 min.
Do not change money at the cashier(reception) they dont have a good exchange rate.
You do need time to check out, they check the room while you are doing the check out .. can take time. You need time to check out.

Room Tip: ask for high floors and view to the Li River. Free Wifi.

We have stayed here in the past. Nice room-good size
Western bathroom.
Clean-especially good for more rural China.
Breakfast buffet excellent.
Had Chinese lunch and a dinner--too greasy for most of us.

We were really happy when we saw this hotel from our Li River cruise as we were about to dock - clearly has a terrific location, right on the water and looked quite pretty.
It took about 15 minutes to walk from the bottom of West Street where the boat docked to the hotel and it was nice seeing what West Street was all about as we walked to the hotel.
Rooms: Rooms are quite large with really big (very hard - Chinese-style mattress) bed. Bathroom had old tub with shower curtain (yuck) and one of those soap/shampoo dispensers that they have at the gym. The view though is pretty amazing!
Restaurants: The only meal we at the hotel was breakfast and that was a big disappointment. Hotel is supposed to be a 5* but the breakfast buffet was no where near what any of the international brands would serve. Not a great choice and not well prepared.
The other two hotels I initially wanted to stay at in Yangshou were sold out as it was a Chinese holiday but all in all, this was a good choice to be close to everything.
