Travelling in China independently is tiring and can be quite stressfull if buying train tickets is involved. Here is a wonderfull little town, friendly and very traveller friendly. The River View Inn provided us with a visually exciting base. Matched with reasonable service and food, this was a great experience and left us wishing we could stay for longer. We... More

We stayed here for one night in May 2016. The hotel staff is very helpful and speaks great English. We rented two bikes from them (no deposit needed) and they explained to us where to go for a nice afternoon tour. They also helped us booking a shuttle bus to the airport the next day. Don't forget to try their... More

My wife made reservations about 12 hours before arriving at the hotel (3am). They were able to give us a room with a balcony and a queen-sized bed, which was nice because when we arrived, it looked like they had a full house (the dining area was jam packed). The dinner was pretty good. The western food they served wasn't... More

While a stay on the river outside the town is preferable this is great if you prefer a town stay. The room was comfortable with a balcony overlooking the road and river/hills. The service was honest and very good (booked the show thru them); excellent English. Restaurant was excellent. Close to West street but quiet.

Lovely place,right on the Li river. They very kindly gave us the 4th, top, floor which we were a bit horrified with as there isn't a lift. When we got up there the room was great with a balcony and the best views. Room was delightful, clan and well laid out. Shower and toilet also excellent.

If the rooms were better, I would give this place a 4 or 5. Likes: Location! Very close to the night market in Yangshuo. The noise didn't bother me at all. The view of the river outside the hotel is gorgeous! Tours - Lucy was our tour guide during our biking tour! We went biking to the bamboo rafts and... More

River view Inn is in a great position in the west st area. The rooms are a good size and generally clean . Make sure your room has a shower recess if that is what you are a custom to. The staff speak English which made life easy for us. The food was good and the breakfast was good

Our second stay at the River View Inn and it didn't disappoint. Very centrally located near West Street facing the Li River in a great location.cxx We took three rooms accommodating 6 of our family staying for three nights plus our dog. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced and for us much nicer than some of the larger hotels... More

This is not a 5 star stay, it doesn't claim to be, but It is the perfect base to begin your walking, rafting or cycling adventure in the most amazing scenery. The hotel is run by friendly, helpful staff and is clean and quiet for the most part being away from the main part of town. This was our second... More
