“Great location, great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

The inn is in the centre of a remote village. We had a room facing the village and the views of both the scenery and village life were great. We really enjoyed relaxing on our balcony and watching what was happening in the village.

Sandy was very welcoming and provided excellent food and service, including homemade yoghurt, bread and pizza. The inn is nicely decorated and comfortable. As is appropriate for the location, it is a traditional (though new) building so its not like the international hotels we normally stay in - there were creaking stairs and we had to make an effort to keep insects from flying into the room.

We arranged our transfer from Yangshou to Dazhai and from Dazhai to the airport through the Wisdom Inn and were satisfied with the service.

We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the view of the village.

A very welcoming place to stay. Our hosts were always on hand to help with questions and advice. The rooms are basic, very pretty and clean. The location is lovely, in the little village of Dazhai. You also don't have to climb halfway up a massive hill to get to it, unlike quite a lot of the other hostels in this area.

The food was also a plus point. The ingredients were fresh and it was all home-cooked.

The owner Sandy will also help you out with transport to and from the village.

Getting to this inn is half an adventure on it's own. The journey took slightly over 2 hours over roads that seem to be filled with potholes. It was a bumpy ride the whole way through and in pitch black as there were no street lamps to be seen. On top of it all, the rain was pouring when we arrived. The driver had to use a torch to lead us over a bridge to the inn. Sandy the owner greeted us in fluent English and showed us to our rooms one floor up. The entire inn was constructed in wood. Our rooms were clean and basic with an attached bathroom. Nothing fancy. The next morning when I stepped out of the inn, the picturesque scene in front of me cannot be described. Lush, green paddy fields unfold in front of me, there was a bridge with a river beneath it and the mountains that surround the village were filled with rice fields, no easy engineering feat. It was simply gorgeous! Living in a village meant there were no restaurants around you, so dining at the inn was a necessity. The home cooked food was wholesome and delicious. The crunchy yam balls I had for dessert is still lingering on my mind. On a side note, I noticed that there were other similar guest houses around Wisdom Inn that looked identical, but I think Wisdom Inn's forte is that the proprietress speaks fluent English and caters to more foreign travelers.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend to book the rooms with the front view. It is well worth every additional ce...

Dazhai village is about 2+ hour drive from Guilin airport. We arrived late afternoon and were picked up at the airport through private car arranged by Wisdom Inn. We reached Dazhai in total darkness and pouring rain. The driver nicely took the initiative to drive the car further to the front of village so we don't have to drag out luggage in the rain. When we arrived at the village gate, people from Wisdom inn waited for us with umbrellas and guide us to the inn. It was a short walk from there, and we truly appreciate the extra attention and care.

Wisdom inn is very clean with basic room. Once you get there, you need to change into slippers they provide. I am not too sure why but I think its to preserve overall cleanliness of the wooden floor and to prevent scratches.

Host Sandy is a very friendly lady who is also an excellent cook! We ordered the breakfast (which is free, price included in the stay) as well as lunch. Really yummy, feel good home cooked chinese style.

I truly recommend this place to stay when visiting Longji and Dazhai in particular

Room Tip: Breakfast included in room rate

The stay at Wisdom Inn was definitely the highlight of our trip to Guilin! Sandy arranged for a clean, comfortable, and safe van with a great driver, who picked us up from the airport. Upon our arrival, she served a delicious locally made tofu and braised vegetables with beer, which was by far the best meal we had during our stay in Guilin area. We were upgraded to a spacious three-person room, overlooking the stream and the bridge. The whole inn feels like a Swiss chalet, is immaculately clean, there is always hot water, the breakfast is copious and very tasty. The sound of water is so soothing! Sandy is a delightful hostess and offers an interesting perspective on the village life. We greatly enjoyed chatting with her on the inn's porch. She is quick in responding to emails and accommodating requests, and also speak very good English. We forgot our IPhone charger in the room and she arranged for a driver coming to Yanghuo to drop it off in our hotel there, which was so extremely thoughtful of her. We highly recommend Wisdom Inn to anybody planning to visit the Dragonback Rice Terraces in Longsheng. It feels like being on a postcard!

If you are travelling to Longsheng, this is The PLACE to stay. We walked around quite a bit around Dazhai and also from Dazhai to PingAn yet we found Wisdom Inn one of the very few places to retain the charm of this beautiful area. Location is great as you only need to walk about 5 mins from the car park. Other hostels in Daazhai require a hike of at least 30 mins. Room is super cosy and bathroom extremely clean. Sandy was immaculate in ensuring the transport to and fro was taken care off. Breakfast excellent!! Thoroughly recommend the hike from Dazhai to PingAn to enjoy the experience of this area fully!

The Wisdom Inn was wonderful. Sandy was amazing with her correspondence, arranging travel and making us feel right at home. She was delightful. The rooms were great. Beds quite firm. We loved our view from of the terraces. I think they are a bit more, but so worth it. We were able to watch the locals (adults and kids alike) walk, work and play. It was so wonderful. We also enjoyed our hike\walk up to Level #2. It was quite misty, but enjoyed it nonetheless. We also enjoyed just walking around the village...several times. Very charming. The service was fantastic and breakfast tasty. Thanks Sandy for making it a great stay!
