This place is set off in the countryside, but near other buildings, and a short drive from Yangshuo town. It is a short walk from the river. They have really good food, and the guides they assigned us for our day tours were cheap and very professional. They were also great with our small children. We had a wonderful time... More

This hotel shows up near the top of Trip Adviser reports and Agoda booking site as a top rated hotel. Bear in mind that this should not be presumed to mean that the hotel is a 5 star Hotel. It isn't. If you want a luxury hotel experience along the lines of a Sofitel or Grand Hyatt you would want... More

Because of the rave reviews, I expected good service and got more than anticipated. The star of the hotel comes from it's friendly staff (who speaks great English) and it's beautiful location. Although not that close to the West Street, stay here if you prefer quiet nights and waking up to beautiful scenery. Their breakfast is delicious! I would have... More

We had a great time at YVR. The location is a nice walk from the city center (there is a free shuttle if you want). We enjoyed walking by the river side and heading to our quiet retreat. Our room had nice mountain views as well. Bathroom/shower was not my favorite. Great view, but not super functional. At least our... More

We were really looking forward to this hotel, after reading many positive reviews and seeing the pictures on Booking portal. The start was really good - hotel owner (Gerd) responded to my initial email very fast and sent me detailed instructions of how to get to the hotel, together with the map. Unfortunately when we arrived, we realized that our... More

The hotel is 25 minutes walking from Yangshuo's city center (free shuttle available). Perfect to scape from noise and crowds. Stay for three nights in a comfortable and nice room. Staff kind and helpful with very good english level. We were positive surprised with food. Only try Chinese plates and they were delicious. Highly recommended.

Nice place to stay. Clean, comfortable, some cool views. Good location from town centre, far enough to feel private but near enough to walk. (25 mins) Good bikes for hire 35rmb per day. Breakfast quality good but all "sets" as I don't eat bread or noodles so it was hard to find a "set" that worked. Managed by adapting whatever... More

We stayed in the family room comprised of two double rooms with a connecting door. The room was very clean and cleaned daily. There is a restaurant on the premises which serves decent food, including pizza. The courtyard area is very nice with seats, tables and a small pond, a ping pong table and a baby swing. Our boys had... More

The hotel is located slightly out of town, close enough to walk (15 minutes) and only 40RMB in a taxi, the hotel also offers a free shuttle service to town and back between 9am and 10pm! The room was big enough with fine facilities and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the scenery! Food in the hotel was also excellent with... More
