“Quiet with good beds”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Just finished an overnight at Remy's during the peak travel season. The guest house is on the far side of the island and off the main road so it was quiet. Emily spoke great English and was very helpful when we checked in ... Especially getting the air on going. We stayed in the garden room 8b which is beside the main house. The room was just big enough for the king bed and 2 arm chairs. The very cold air con and the soft pillow top mattress was great at the end of a long hot day.

Our breakfast was included in the room. We didn't see a menu and were served a fried egg, white bread, and small fruit bowl. I think Remy made the coffe himself and it was just what we needed to start the day.

Hospitality is very friendly and Remy helped us get oriented to the island and recommended a couple restaurants. We enjoyed a couple of very cold beers in the garden last night while catching up on email (free wifi).

The only recommendations would be to upgrade the towels and pillows to match the quality of the rest of the room. Overall good stay and very helpful staff.

Room Tip: We liked the garden room in the adjacent small building. There are 2 side by side if you have 2 coup...

We stayed for 2 nights at Remy's Guesthouse. The location is great for exploring Gulangyu and the beds were extremely comfortable (pillow top mattress!). Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Only drawbacks were: Breakfast plan was a little confusing (what was included, ordering the night before) and room originally booked didn't have an ensuite bathroom as expected- it was two doors down.

We stayed in Rémy's for three nights. There was a problem with our booking the first night so he upgraded us for the first night and we had our booked rooms the next two nights.
The best things about Rémy's are:
Rémy himself who speaks English, French and German, and his wife speaks Chinese. So he can help you with directions, restaurant suggestions, tips about going to various activities, etc.
The location is very good for us - in a quieter location but still within quick walking distance to sights and restaurants.
The rooms are large and very comfortable, extremely good beds, and decor with a bit of a quirk (we stayed in a large sleigh bed with diamond studs). There is a great hot water supply.
The breakfasts are lovely, and served in a small garden.
Also there is Léon, the night guard, so you can come home any time.
Finally, there is a comfy home environment at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: all the rooms are good. Maybe the bunk bed one is best for children.

Stayed here over the weekend and it was just fabulous. The beds were very comfortable and the whole hotel was very clean. Remy and his staff were so accomodating and helpful; making reccomendations for restaurants, organising tours and offering advice.
I would definitely definitely return and reccommend it for friends.

Room Tip: We had a roof terrace by our room- a twin room on the top floor (room 7)
