The Hidden Dragon Village is a beautiful building in an old style in the heart of nature. The hotel overlooks the river and all the peaks, and is a nice, quiet getaway from the very touristy Yangshuo town. The views are definitely some of the best ones we got. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They booked us excellent seats for the Impressions Light Show, tickets for the water cave, etc. all at face value / cost (e.g. there is no booking mark-up - it's simply a service they offer). This was easy for us, because we got a receipt from the hotel and simply exchanged the receipt for a ticket at the ticket office. We also booked a massage with them, and the massage therapist was EXCELLENT and came to the hotel. We were there during low season, and the staff were all very welcoming and often played with our 6 month old, who was traveling with us. The staff also helped us with some late night rides to a nearby restaurant another night, because we were traveling with a baby. The rooms are nice and there was clearly thought that went into the materials and decorations. They're not luxury accommodations, but they are clean and have all the basic necessities. We stayed during the off season, during one of the coldest weeks of the year, and the AC unit had trouble keeping our room very warm. But if you're not traveling in the dead of winter, this likely won't be an issue. There's also a great booklet in the rooms with tons of tips for all of the Yangshuo sites and activities.

My family booked the Hidden Dragon Villa through Cathay Pacific Holidays for a short-break holiday during Easter 2018. The hotel is located in a refurbished Ching Dynasty traditional courtyard house in Jo Wu Du Village about 7 kilometres outside Yangshuo. The hotel staff, who were very pleasant and helpful, organised taxi transfers to and from Guilin International Airport and locally when we wanted to do sightseeing. The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Yulong River and the Big Banyan Tree while other local scenic spots like Moon Hill and the Gold Water Cave are also accessible on foot (about 30 minutes). The rooms are clean and comfortable but we requested a transfer from the tatami room on the ground floor after our first night as we did not enjoy the experience of sleeping on the floor and there was inadequate storage space for three persons. The restaurant on the top floor commands excellent views of the karst limestone scenery. The food was good but, as the cook doesn't work all the time, it was necessary to check with the reception staff as and when he was available. Luckily, there was a modern hotel just along the road with a good restaurant where we were able to eat if we couldn't eat at our hotel. One major criticism is that, on our final day, we were unable to have breakfast at the hotel as the cook wasn't working and were only able to have a bowl of noodles at the other hotel as they only had enough breakfast for their paying guests. Apart from the 'hit and miss' nature of the hotel meals, which is something of which all potential guests should be aware, we enjoyed our stay at Hidden Dragon Villa.

Elle the front desk manager gave us a warm welcome and spoke good English. Since it is low season and only 2 rooms are occupied, she upgraded us to a room on the third floor with a lovely view of the limestone hills. The restaurant is on the fourth floor with the same view, only higher! We had dinner there the first evening as we didn't know there were perhaps better restaurants in the neighborhood. Actually the pizza and vegetables were quite good and we enjoyed a nice bottle of Australian red wine for 180 yuan. Breakfast was okay, but the toast was underdone and only strawberry jam available. Our room is quite spacious with a good sized wardrobe. There was no bedside table on my side of the bed, so I improvised with a small stool that just fitted into the space to put my reading glasses etc. The bathroom is in dire need of maintenance and should be redecorated. The shower works fine but water leaks out onto the floor. But for the price, it is good value for money.

Very cozy clean room. The view is breathtaking if you take a room with a view. If not, you can enjoy even better view from a terrace on the roof, open 24/7. Stuff was very helpful with everything. They english is very good. We have exchanged emails before my arrival. They helped me organize activities, rides to train station. The hotel is distant from downtown. But there are couple of restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. I enjoyed long walks along the river, bamboo rafting, and tea plantation. First two are minutes away from hotel, tea plantation is a half an hour taxi drive. I picked tea and brought it home with me. Dried it in my oven and now serve it to friends. At the tea plantation you can also enjoy traditional teas of all kinds.
