This is in a great setting with large wrap-around balconies, spacious rooms and an intimate ambiance. We're told it was among the best hotels in the area. However, the room we stayed in (103) was very awkwardly designed, with high thresholds in every room, making it clumsy and easy to hurt yourself, especially going to the bathroom at night. The...

This hotel is lovely for anyone looking to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city. Situated about 15-20 from Yangshuo, it is a bit remote but easily accessible. We borrowed a bike to explore the gorgeous scenic surroundings and rented an electric scooter at night to go into town. The distance does restrict your choices in restaurants,... More

This is a beautiful place to stay in the mountains. We stayed here for 3 nights during our tour of China - after all the hustle and bustle of Shanghai it was so lovely to come here amongst the peace and quiet and relax. It was 40 yuan (£4/5) for a taxi into town or we hired a golf type... More

Nice location, near the mountains. Very nice staff and so helpful! The staff speaks English, a big plus!! The cleaning could be a little bit better, but not a very big problem. The Restaurant in the hotel is good and it is open all day. Good Breakfast!

Just back from China and I made this my first review because I almost opted out of this hotel due to some very bad reviews just before leaving for China. Totally confused by this as we greatly enjoyed our stay at this small hotel in Yangshuo. This is not a Marriott so if you are looking for that type of... More

The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was large, with a wide bath tub overlooking the lake. The local area was wonderful, and it was enlightening to watch the local community carry out their day. The staff are friendly and helpful, and there are many books and films on offer for free. It's quite an arcadian wonder, with a... More

Yangshuo is an incredible place to visit. With the number of tourists increasing, lodging choices continue to grow. But I will go out of my way to stay at Moondance again, and here's why: 1. Moondance is small, intimate, rustic, yet well-appointed. 2. It is secluded and quiet. If you are looking for night life and action, this may not... More
