Yangshuo Park Resort Hotel was booked by our agency and after a two-day stay, I can safely say that it was not a wise choice. The hotel, as the name suggests, is located inside the Yangshuo Park. Considering other hotel options in the city, many of which offer great views of the Li or the Dragon River, the location is nothing worthwhile. It is about 15 minutes’ walk from the West Street. If you do not have your own vehicle with you all the time, be prepared to walk at least 10 minutes to the nearest restaurant, sometimes in the rain, as found out one night.
One expects front office staff at a star category resort to know some English but every time I needed to interact with them the only response I received was a shrug accompanied by ‘No English’. They have a restaurant but the day we checked-in, we arrived for lunch only to be told (after much difficulty) that it opens only for breakfast. As with many of the Chinese hotels, do not expect the bottle of drinking water in your room to be complimentary. On the contrary, they are priced about five times the price they are available at the departmental shop on the ground floor. You will also be asked to deposit about 100 RMB per day as security money, so be prepared.
The hotel has a tiny swimming pool which was without any water during our stay. There were some gym equipment but we did not see anybody using them. There is almost no wi-fi signal available but they did provide us with a router in the room. The breakfast, only thing complimentary, was entirely Chinese and none of the food were marked. So you would not know what you were having. Overall, not the nicest experience.
