4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room and amenities were ideal. The staff and management were wonderful; so friendly and attentive and assisted in everything including assisting us with activities outside of the hotel. Room worked really well for our family of 4 (7yo twins). Had fun sitting back watching the rafts go by ... and we had our own go...with water soakers..

I stayed 2 nights at the Yangshuo Mountain retreat with a friend and had a great experience. The location of the hotel is fantastic - far enough away from Yangshuo to offer true relaxation but not too far that you are isolated. Being beside the Yulong River is amazing - sitting there relaxing and swimming in the river made for... More

We stayed at the Mountain Retreat in July, we were collected by the driver from Guilin station, and greeted straight away by one of the sisters upon arrival at the hotel. The hotel itself and the location is stunning, there are eating areas right on the edge of the water and you can hear the rafters singing as they glide... More

It is a very well located hotel right in front of the river. The room and the bathroom was nice, clean, with good matreses and hot water. The dinner was delicius, but the breakfast was the best. We got up early in the morning and can enjoy our breakfast just infront of the river with a really nice view of... More

Perfectly crafted in traditional style, serving excellent food and quiet, comfortable atmosphere. The river view rooms can't be beat. Helpful staff can arrange activities, though prices seemed a little higher than elsewhere for same events.I highly recommend the bamboo rafting, or cycling right outside the hotel up the brick riverside trail through quiet farms surrounded by the gumdrop shaped mountains....

You can not dream of a better view than from the hotel terrace in yangshuo. Directly on the Yulong river. What make this place very awesome is the service, the staff is always ready to make your stay more comfortable and arrange transportation and other visit to the area. On a slightly negative side is the quality of the bicycle... More

Having done my homework, the reviews of this location are 100% accurate. It is an oasis from the touristy downtown of Yangshuo. If you want a quiet retreat with beautiful views, this is the perfect place. If you want an active nightlife scene, this won't please you. It is about a 15 minute taxi ride from downtown -- the lively,... More

My family and I stayed here two nights during our tour of China. It was another prechosen hotel, but it was a great break from all of the city hotels we have been staying in. Best room air conditioning, hands down, and was needed during the hot and humid stay. The hotel is around 15-20 minutes outside the main city.... More

Stayed 4 nights in the family double queen room with my husband and 3 children (7, 10, 11). The room was only RMB700 a night with a 3% discount if paid in cash. No additional tax or govt charges. The room was big and comfortable for the 5 of us. Hence, very good value for money. The room was not... More

This hotel is on the scenic route for Yangshou...and for a strong reason. Nestled in the karst mountains and adjacent to the meandering Yulong River, Yangshou Mountain Retreat (YMR) is the place to relax. The retreat is located about 10-15 minutes by taxi from downtown Yangshou where the famous Li River cruises end their journeys. We've stayed in Guilin and... More
