“Nice place to stay in Yangshuo”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

A very nicely furnished hotel in the heart of Yangshuo. My husband and I stayed in one room and our teenage daughter was next door in another room. The room was very clean and secure. The bathroom was modern and large. I am a very light sleeper and although they try and soundproof the rooms it was a bit noisy at night. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are plenty to chose from in the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly and accomodating.

We booked two rooms at the newly renovated Rosewood Hotel. One Deluxe Double for my husband and I and one Standard Double for our teenage daughter. Both rooms were opposite each other on the first floor. When we were shown our Deluxe Double we were a little concerned because we feared that it might be noisy at night. We did not need to be concerned because the set-up of the room ensures that it was very quiet at night. The bed is near the passage and you walk through the large bathroom before you get to the balcony. The hotel is located in the “old town” pedestrian street area with lots of restaurants and souvenir shops. The street is quite noisy at night with people dining at tables in the street, but it is a terrific atmosphere and feels like a big street party every night. However, when we closed the balcony door and the bathroom door we slept very well on the very soft comfortable bed and did not hear any noise in the bedroom.
Our daughter’s standard double was perfect for her but I thought that it may be a bit small for 2 people. The bathroom was very large with a nice enclosed shower. A lot of the living area was in the large bathroom such as the chair and the fridge and the bedroom itself was a bit small but together it was a large room. Our deluxe room was so much bigger and was not that much more expensive. Both rooms were exactly as depicted on the website and both air-cons worked very well and both showers were powerful. The rooms were very comfortable with all the extras such as bathrobes, slippers, fruit basket, all bathroom goodies even bath salts and washing powder.
We loved being in the middle of the action, it meant that we could stay up late having dinner and be back in our room in no time also after a long day sightseeing we could go upstairs freshen up and come back down for dinner and shopping we found it very convenient.
All the six or seven restaurants on the beautifully cobblestone pedestrian strip outside the hotel are owned by the Rosewood group. I especially liked the German restaurant. We had been travelling throughout Asia for 2 weeks and our daughter was tired of the different food and wanted pizza and pasta. We were able to order from the other menus and have pizza or pasta or anything else delivered to our table from a different restaurant and put on the same bill. The 10% discount is handy also.
The daytime reception staff and very friendly and knowledgeable. We booked a trip that required public bus transport and they had a staff member take us to the station and make sure that we got on the right bus. Mr. Rudi was always around the pedestrian strip in the evening and he always enquired that all was well. These little things make all the difference.
The only thing that I would have liked is an in room safe as we had to keep our passports at the front desk and we had no place to secure our lap top. Also bottled water every day would be nice, not just on the first day as we always seemed to be going out for water although the latter is only a small thing.
All in all a lovely hotel with great staff in an excellent location.

Hello customer,

thanks for staying at our Rosewood Hotel. We are happy that our work to keep the noise outside works (two doors, two layer of glas). From today we give a bottle of water every day to the Rosewood Hotel guests. November we will start to install safe boxes in most of the rooms. We hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

We stayed at both the inn and the hotel. They are both fantastic places to stay; the inn is nice and quiet and the hotel puts you right in the middle of everything in comfort and style. With 2 young kids having a balcony view of everything from the second floor made it easy to stay around the activity even while in the hotel. You can have food on the balcony or on the first or second floor, whatever is convenient. Also the people at the inn and hotel are super friendly and willing to help you with any questions. The owner and hostess love to make sure you are comfortable with your stay. You will see either of them around the place on your way in or out. The only thing I would change with the visit would be to go to Yangshuo on the off-season as all the hotels and inns get pricey; but that's to be expected. The best place to stay in a great little town.

Dear customer,

we are happy that you and your kids enjoyed the time at our hotels. Ana and I hope that your kids still have all shoes. We agree with you that the "October Golden Week" is not the best time for travel.
We hope to see you and your family again at a not so busy time.

Kind regards

Stayed here for one night in February 2011 at end of Li River cruise. The hotel is very nicely decorated in an old fashioned style. Everything in the room was spotless with free fruit and bottled water included in the price. It doesn't have eating facilities so you have to go round the corner to one of their other places if you want breakfast.
Unfortunately when we were there there was no hot water although bathroom was very well equipped. The manager was very apologetic in the morning and said the water was supposed to have been fixed. He offered to take us for a complimentary breakfast to compensate but we were leaving for a taxi to the airport so didn't have time to take him up on his offer. Still, it was a very pretty hotel and I would stay there again.

The service is not bad, but it is definitely not worth 288 yuan a night if you don't usually fall asleep to bad rowdy karaoke tourists who can't sing. 2nd night in a row.

Like to thank the guest for his opinion.
We can remind ourselves of this guest. The guest is moved twice within our hotels in another room. We understand that the guest is a very sensitive sleeper. Our policy is to make all guests happy. From October we will equip all rooms with balcony with a second sheet of soundproof glass for the window and a second soundproof door. As the guest says, we are not a bad hotel.

The service at The Rosewood Inn was first class. Rudi and the team coul;d not have been more helpful-even accompanying us to locations in the town when we asked for directions.

The room was luxurious,spacious and trendy with a fantastic bath and shower-our balcony was the ideal place to watch the world go by or for having a drink at the end of the evening .

Situated at the heart of Yangshuo the hotel provided an ideal location for accessing shops, bars and restaurants. Rosewood's all you-can -eat breakfast buffet provided an excellent start to the day

Rosewood hotel caught our eye as we walked past the beautiful wooden balconies over-looking the busteling streets in yangshuo. from the moment we checked inn, the service was outstanding, all aspects of the hotel are highly thought out and their attention to detail isamazing. all the rooms we saw, no matter the price all offered, bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bath salts, amoungst a long list of many other things.
some rooms had a bath and a shower-a must after a sweaty day of biking or hiking.

alongside the hotels facilites rosewood also offers great food-a particulary good breakfast buffet for just 58RMB for residents (approx 5.50GBP), daily fruit and chocolates are brought to your room and complimentary tea and coffee in offered the afternoons.

unfortunaly during our stay at Rosewood, 2 out of our party of 4 were ill, without hesitation one of Rosewood staff, walked us to the nearby hospital where she waited with us and helped with translations. when the other half of out party found out we had gone to the hospital the manager immediatly escorted the rest too. a service we thought was above and beyond their call of duty.

overall, a wonderful stay in a wonderful place-highly recommended.
