New Li River Hotel (Pantao Road)
Ranked #175 of 475 Hotels in Yangshuo County
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Only stayed one night while on an organised tour. would have liked to stay longer as Yangshuo is a great place. Rooms were clean but a bit tired and dated which was to become the theme for this trip. Beds a bit hard, but did not bother us. location quite good and within easy walking distance of everything.

This hotel was the choice of Exodus Tours and it was one of the cleanest on the tour. It is on the main road but our room was to the backside so it was quiet. The room was clean, even without mold in the bathroom. Breakfast was good if monotonous. West Street is about 1/3 of a mile away, to the east. This is where many of the 'foreign' restaurants were. A bank for exchange and ATM were next door and convenience stores also nearby. There was a daily produce market along the street towards west street, which meant fighting your way through the crowds daily to reach West Street. There is much to see and do in and around town and we saw many western tourists here.

Room Tip: Backside was quiet.

The hotel has a run-down feel, but Yangshuo is a small town and this is probably one of the better hotels. It is well- located, just a short walk from the centre of town, the main shopping area and the river. The reception area is very nice and although the staff seemed to have limited English, they were friendly and helpful. The rooms, however, are tired and run-down. The bathroom had a stale smell and looked grubby despite being clean. The beds are quite hard but comfortable. Our aircon worked well, but smelled a bit of smoke. Breakfast was not great and it may be worth your while to walk into town and have a good coffee and breakfast there if you are a big breakfast eater.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on an Exodus tour. The room we had was grubby and stale, had very hard beds and the air con didn't work. The only view was of the side of another building and the roof of something below us which obviously had prevented anybody ever cleaning the disgusting filthy windows. This was also the case on the window at the end of the hotel corridor.
A real shame as the front rooms at least had scenery views whatever their other shortcomings.
This place should up it's game and Tour companies should insist they do.
I expect ,though, the reason they use it (we were the third tour from our company staying there in that week) is that it has to be a seriously cheap deal on block bookings.,

Room Tip: Almost any other hotel further through the town would be a good bet.

My room great ,some others on the tour not good. Dirty carpet and smell. My room was small but I had a great view. One of my students room had condos for sale and barely a window. Location was great. Steps from west street. Breakfast was very good too except for some stuff left in the dining room.

Hotel is located conveniently at the West street, the shopping street filled with stalls selling foods, souvenirs and cheap accessories.
Walking to West Street takes about 10 minutes, along the shopping street. OR you may take the mini bus RMB1 to get to the hotel's entrance
Room is clean, airconditioned, however WIFI is not available in room, or even at the lobby.

I stayed here during my tour group's two night stay in Yangshuo. The location is great, you're only steps away from the heart of the town and West Street. The lobby is nice enough, as are some of the views. But here is a quick list of what we were greeted with upon entering our room: dirty sheets, a layer of dust an inch thick, the hardest sleeping surface we experienced in all of China, a bathroom that smelled of beef with broccoli with a side of urine, crusty towels decorated with stains, a shower mat and shower curtain caked in mildew, an AC unit that pelted water ALL night, no safe or hair dryer, and the icing on the cake: a gigantic, multi-colored piece of mucus (aka booger) hardened on the wall. Others in our group mentioned AC units that did not work, housekeeping entering the room when the "do not disturb" sign was on the door, four precarious flights of stairs, and an underwhelming breakfast. Again, the location was great, but beware that the photos online are somewhat deceiving.Yangshuo is a beautiful town with lots to do and see. Definitely rent a bike and ride through the village and countryside, raft down the Li River, climb Moon Hill (bring water), see the impressions show, and flaunt your best bargaining skills on West Street.
