Yangshuo Outside Inn - The Original Countryside Experience. The Outside Inn is a friendly small guesthouse with a unique character, located in a set of traditional farmhouses and an apartment building, ideally located just outside Yangshuo in a beautiful setting with lush gardens and the karst peaks right at your doorstep. The traditional farmhouses are renovated into comfortable rooms and family houses with western standards. Close to this complex of farmhouses is our apartment building with more modern family apartments and rooms. The Outside Inn offers guests a very quite place where you can experience the real traditional China. A stunning swimming spot at the Yulong River is a few minutes walk away and if you want total peace you can walk in 20 minutes to "The Lost World Plateau", a small field up one of the karst peaks where you are just by yourself surrounded by the mountains.

We have spent a lovely week here, visiting most attractions Yangshuo has to offer. Location is superb, great to explore some with the inn’s free bicycles. We were looking forward to our meals every single day. Did not even think about trying somewhere else. Loved the local food. And anything was possible vegetarian friendly version! Atmosphere is really good. Rural, hostel, “Bauernhof”-like. All staff are very friendly, but must highlight Wendy. She is exceptionally good. Ready to answer any questions any time, help plan tours and make the best of your stay. The only thing we did have an issue with, was that everything was constantly wet. Bedclothes, towels, our clothes; so we kept all our clean clothes in our suitcases, to keep them dry. (there are no cupboards to unpack anyway). We are not sure if it is only now, as it has been raining a lot, or it is normal here. The smell is a bit disturbing after a while. It is manageable, but we did not expect this after previous descriptions/web page/ and room pictures... We came on our friends’ recommendation, but must admit, years passed by, and it feels the shower and room could do with “some” touching up.

We visited the outside Inn as a family with teenage kids. As we were looking forward to a countryside holiday we weren’t disappointed by the whole area in-and outside the Inn. PROs: -very nice staff especially Wendy was so helpful and always warm and welcoming -food is great on a good pricing also if compared with close-by restaurants -bike rental is included -other guests are mostly western tourists with a interesting background (like diplomats, expats from all over) -bed and lining is nice and clean -activities arranged by the outside Inn are interesting and on reasonable prices -Outside Inn is in a authentic surrounding...with chicken and ducks running around, a friendly cat and a baby dog CONs: -unfortunately rooms are definitely in need of a good clean up -some mayor renovation has to be done e.g. fix the bathroom door for closing, fix the lightbulbs in several lamps, fix the air condition that it would work at all (we informed staff ad arrival but nothing happened) -rooms are damp and have a heavy smell of mold -after a 3 day stay literally everything is damp and has a bad smell of mold -as air condition isn’t working nothing ever dries...feels like living in a swamp -unfortunately the nice view from the tea house is spoiled by a new 4 story building All in all it’s a friendly place for very basic rooms...if you like to stay more comfortable there’s lots of alternatives around.

The third time within 1 year I stayed in the outside inn for more than a week. The tranquility, the always friendly staff, the great location and beautiful excursions. This hotel gets 5 hearts from me.

We stayed here as part of our china trip. Really authentic old building. Rooms were very spacious and had great air con. Not many bugs at all considering it was so rural. Food was spectacular. Laundry service available and cheap. Really cozy feel to the outside Inn. Would recommend staying here instead of in the main town of yangsho.

Review for the restaurant only. The food here is delicious, the hostess second to none. Recommend the Snoozing Dragon, Pineapple Chicken, Bamboo Shoots with Mushrooms, Lasagna and the home made Apple Pie.
