Stay away from this hotel. The bathroom stinks! We have to change several rooms to find one not smelly (because they did not put in the U-tube under the sink during construction so the sewage smell comes up). I went in Jan when it was cold. The room was ice cold when I walked in--no heater is on! I had to turn on the in-room air-conditioning unit, which took forever to heat up and will not go up to more than 17°C. Later I was told that I had to call front desk to ask them to turn on the heater for my room! Am I asking too much to think that a hotel should turn on its heater when it is open to receive guests? I understand they want to save energy and money, but don't do it on guests!

Things just go downhill. Rooms are not clean. But that is so trivial when compared to how front desk treats guests. We booked the hotel through a local travel agent because we decided on an overnight stay in yangshuo the day before. They gave us a good rate. But when the front desk realized from our passports that we are US citizens, they insisted on a new rate which doubles the original price citing that the lower rate is for Chinese only! How outrageous is that in this day and age to discriminate against people based on citizenship!

I can't think of any positive things about this hotel--it is located quite far away from the West street in the middle of nowhere. The air quality is so bad that one cannot see the river from across the street even if one is in a river front room (as we did).

Just stay away!

The Chinatown hotel is a 3.5 to 4 star hotel catering to tourists. The rooms are clean with very big beds. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the West Street tourist area. Be careful to ask the front desk how to walk to this area...it can be confusing if you are not familiar with the area. Overall we had a good experience here.

I did book this hotel as it said next to Li River.Little did they mention that theres a very busy road separating the hotel and the river.The views of the river are aslo not pretty as its full of big blue tourists boat. Its also in a very awkward part of town far from west street. I have not checked the facilities and rooms though.
