The hotel is located in tiantou village which is a 30min uphill hike from the village of Dazhai. Being higher up means that it has fantastic views of the best rice terraces in China. This is a wooden building in a remote village so it is not a luxury Hong Kong hotel. The room facilities are therefore fairly basic and supplies are brought in by foot or pony. You get a lockable room with en-suite, toilet and basic shower. The hotel have done a very good job with the simple provision; the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms have free wi-fi and television. The rooms are clean and the dining room has fantastic views of the rice terraces. There is a good selection of food available at a high standard and a good price. The owners Jimmy and Hannah are very helpful, speak good English and own a travel service that can arrange trips, transport and accommodation around Guangxi(Yangshuo, rice terraces and Sanjiang). The attractions nearby are walks such as Pingan (a nearby village) back to the hotel which is a really amazing 4hr walk and the JinKeng Cable Car. When you arrive at Dazhai parking lot, there will probably be locals willing to carry your bags up to the hotel for a small fee. I recommend using these even if you can carry your own luggage as the porters are very helpful and will show you the way. You will enjoy the walk more and they will appreciate the extra income. We strongly recommend this hotel for its stunning location, clean rooms and friendly staff.
