We wanted to stay in a location that was more rural and not immediately in Yangshuo itself. This inn suited the bill perfectly. While outside Yanshuo it is still close to a number of tourist hotspots that are all within walking or bicycle distance. There is also a local bus that goes into town for about 2 yuan or a free shuttle that can take you to the sister Inn on the Yulong River. The Inn can provide bicycles or you can hire them on the main road. Riding along the Yulong river was a highlight. The room was large and comfortable for a family of 3 or 4 with all furniture made from bamboo. The bathroom is starting to look a little tired and could do with a refresh but was serviceable. There is a restaurant onsite that was very nice but is western based. There are not many other eating establishments close by. The staff were wonderful and all local people from the surrounding villages.
One thing to note is that local taxi drivers will not go to the hotel on meter as it is out of town. They charge 40 yuan. Note you may need to bargain to get to this price as they will start at a higher price. The Inn is happy to organise a pickup if you need one however.
The inn can also organise a driver to the airport in Guilin if needed. We paid 300 Yuan for this.
The area is beautiful and while very heavily populated with tourists still has great natural beauty and is definitely worth a visit.

Dear Friends,
We so appreciate your honest feedback and are glad you enjoyed our inn, which is indeed off the beaten track. While Luna, our rooftop restaurant overlooking Moon Hill is mainly Italian, we do have a dozen wonderful Chinese dishes on the menu, prepared by our local chefs. Also, surrounding the Village Inn are many Farmers' Food restaurants, though they are primarily visited by Chinese tourists and are family-style dining. We brought in Italian chefs and opened Luna because at the time, there was no authentic Western food in Yangshuo. While now there are more choices, for those staying with us in the country, we believe it is a welcome respite from Chinese cooking for most Western guests.
Thank you again for sharing your experience with other guests and for helping us to become one of the best inns in China.
Yours faithfully,
Anna, Tina, Gloria and the Yangshuo VIllage Inn Family

Was a very relaxing place to stay and staff were very friendly and helpful. Easy to communicate with staff as their English was very good Liked the fact that it was an eco-friendly establishment. A super place to stay for the end of our holiday in China after having been in huge cities.

Room Tip: Was adequate for our needs. Nice rustic decor. No fridge or TV or lift, but didn't really need them.

Safe travels,

I loved this boutique accommodation. It had all that I needed for a comfortable and restful stay. The important things like free fresh water, free WIFI, good hot shower, comfortable bed, mosquito net, opening windows, privacy, fresh fruit are here provided with simple flair. By far the best thing though is the warm and ever helpful english speaking staff. Anna,Tina,Jessica, Gloria...
Particularly good is the Italian Restaurant on the roof overlooking Moon Hill. Very good food. Great fresh salad. Everything very well done.

Room Tip: my room west loft, situated in the farmhouse, very quiet and private. You are part of the Village.

Dear Juliet,
Thank you, thank, thank you!
We loved having you and welcoming you as a member of our family. We so appreciate your praise for our service and for Luna, our Italian rooftop dining and bar.

As every other reviewer has noted, the staff at the Village Inn are outstanding! You are warmly welcomed and immediately feel at home. Upon our arrival and during check-in we were served a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and given chocolate biscotti. A great way to start a stay!

The lobby is done in beautiful rust reds and the furnishings are nice. Homey-feeling.

Our room had a direct view of Moon Hill. It is nicely furnished with lots of storage spaces (some on shelves under the bed). The bathroom is smallish but well-appointed (except our sink faucet directed water onto the drain plug and then splattered on us and the floor), but has little space for placing things.

The room had a small balcony outside with chairs and a table.

As everyone else has pointed out, the staff is the high point of the hotel. Everyone is on a first-name basis here.

The rooftop restaurant and terrace are very nice with views of the karsts and Moon Hill. Yes, there are some buildings that spoil the view a bit, but as Harry Nilsson said “you see what you want to see…”

We had a number of nice Italian dishes during our stay and enjoyed each. Breakfast was always very good.

Anna was, of course, very helpful in helping arrange a taxi from the Yangshuo High-Speed train station to the hotel (200RMB), as well as taxi’s to Yangshuo and to Guilin as well as to their other facility – Yangshuo Mountain Retreat.

Dear Friends,
It was a pleasure for all of us to have such appreciative guests such as yourselves with us at Village Inn. As you mentioned, we are a family here and all of our guests are part of our family. We believe that everyone who stays with us is a temporary resident of our village and not a visitor or tourist. Our rooms are very simple and we're so glad that they were comfortable for you.
Please do come back and stay with us again with special treats as our returning guests :)
Yours truly,
Anna, Tina, Gloria and the Village Inn Family

The Yangshuo Village Inn is located in a small village and is like a guesthouse. Our room for 3 persons was big and confortable. The breakfast and the dinner were very good and we appreciated a lot having an Italian dinner there which is sometimes a good alternative to the Chinese food.

Dear Leonardo,
Wow! It is not every day that we have an Italian guest praising our Italian cooking! We're very grateful for that :)
We built our family suites differently than other Yangshuo hotels, in that children or a friend have their own adjoining room for privacy, which we're happy to hear you appreciated.
Wishing you a wonderful journey home,
Tina, Anna, Gloria and the Village Inn Family
