“Excellent service and location ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed for two nights in this hotel in a triple bedroom. The bedrooms are not that great, however the best part of this hotel is the location and the service of the staff. The location is just a couple of minutes away from the busy city center, with a great view over the river. The staff is super friendly and arranged all the tours and gave us plenty of useful information about what to do in town. Overall I recommend this restaurant, not for the hotel facilities but for what is essential when we do a low budget trip... Good location and good service.

“Chill hideout in busy town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Although next to the tourist center, we felt truly relaxed here. The restaurant offers local and western food, which ment I could try new stuff while my daughter ate "safely". Great base to explore the amazing country side. They rent bikes.
The room was spacious enough and comfortable.

“A good stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Location is perfect, next to West street and facing the Li river!

Staff was ok, the receptionist was very good with English and helped me out when need. Price was really cheap considering the view/location.

I never took the breakfast hence I can't judge.

Room per se was nice. The only thing I did not like was the shower area.. It was worse then in a hostel to me.

All in all it is ok.

Tip - if you go there, ask to get the rooms facing the river. They are way better then the room at the edges (like the one I had)

“Great River Side Terrace For outside Dinning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The terrace was very nice and the food was good. A great place to people watch as it lies beside the main river side promenade in town. Not boring.

“good meal, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This place ain't too shabby, had a veggie burger with fries and salad. The price was reasonable and the location is really convenient (2 min walk from west street). Nothing super special about this place but its a good place to sit back and recharge before getting back into the thick of Yangshuo!
