We spent a night here shortly after the New Year. Lovely property, nestled in the hills above Yangshuo, with stunning views into the valley and town below. We were upgraded to a room overlooking the valley, and did dinner and breakfast at the hotel. A few plusses to point out: 1. Did I mention the view was incredible? Nothing like... More

Great view of Yangshuo, Getting into town requires a 10 walk to hire a boatman, or bicycling. After dark it probably means getting a cab. On the downside when it came time for me to check out, the manager/front desk clerk was nowhere to be found for about half an hour while I and the cab waited.

I will begin from advantages. Quiet place with great views. English speaking staff which is extremely helpful and professional. They have very nice bicycles to rent and scooter as well. I have tried both for reasonable prices. Disadvantages. It is huge problem with taxis in Yangshuo so every time you need to take it to consideration. Not so easy to... More

Hey everybody, We visited Yangshuo during last September and the hotel was the main event. We felt like part of the family and the staff were really nice and helpful. And lets not forget the amazing view! The place is 10 minutes drive from the center, and the solitude is a big advantage. Also, we rented bicycle (they got excellent... More

Dongling resort is located in a beautiful hillside. it has beautiful view and very very friendly staff (always offer to help). Room is in good size. That are the only pros of the resort. The hotel is very far from Yangshou, you need to take a taxi (can't walk), and the taxis take a lot of money, because they know... More

Staff was very helpfull and arranged everything we needed at all times of the day. Rooms are very clean. View from the balcony was wonderful! Note that the hotel ia a bit far from the city which means you have to get a taxi (30rmb) for every trip to town - getting back to the hotel will cost 35-40rmb because... More

I liked the place, its view over the hills, its remote location from the city (we have a car though, I would not recommend it if you don't drive). Rooms are well furnished, clean, no smell. Our pet was indeed welcome. Wifi was fast enough. Regrets : no fridge and no safe in the room but then I remembered it's... More

Rooms were fairly basic but adequate, food not particularly great but ok. Beautiful views over river and valley below with helpful staff which arranged transfers and taxis. The taxi costs of staying in this hotel were quite high due to the remote location.

Somewhat remote which was why we choose it, but problematic with a taxi being required for any expedition out of the hotel, it is high on a hill so make sure not to get a tuk tuk home, as we had to get out and walk up the hill as the tuk tuk motor was not powerful enough to drive... More
