“Beautiful, beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This was by far my favorite city, as well as hotel that we stayed in during our trip to China. Tea Cozy was beautifully decorated, the staff was so friendly and eager to help. The owner, Curry, in particular was excellent as he recommended the sunrise hike to the top of a lookout point which overlooked the karst hills of Yangshou. The view and sunrise was truly spectacular and breathtaking. He said very few people even know of the location, and without him we most certainly would have missed out on a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend this hotel!! The food was excellent as well, and not over priced in any way. We ate every meal there, and easily could have tried everything on the menu if we had had the time. It was all very good. Look no further, stay at Tea Cozy! And look for the Tea Cozy 2 opening down the line :) I really cannot praise Tea Cozy and the amazing staff enough!

Dear Friends, thanks for your kind words to me and to our hotel! Since both me and my partner have been English speaking tour guides in the area of both Yangshuo and Longji rice terraces for about 14 years already, so that it's easy for us to arrange all kinds of tours and activities for you, as well as your trip to the other parts of China. We look forward to your next visit.

Best regards from Curry and the whole Tea Cozy team

What a gem –hotel staff spoke very good English, a gorgeous room with giant size king bed, balcony and wooden bath tub for relaxing at the end of the day. This is a very mountainous area very similar to the hills in the Vietnamese Halong Bay area with tons of things to do. The staff were exceptionally friendly, professional and were happy to assist with anything you wanted help with or to do. But the food was my lasting memory - we dined at the hotel for all our meals and the choice and flavours will stay in my memory forever. Both western and Asian are catered for but local foods with the freshest ingredients straight from the garden were stunning.

Very nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Tea Cozy very much, and we are glad that you enjoyed the food at our hotel restaurant as we have our own vegetable garden so that most of the fresh vegetables we just planted ourselves. Sometimes you can pick the vegetables at our organic vegetable garden yourself if you like. Both chef at Tea Cozy are about 15 years experienced and were trained by some professional Western chef. Many thanks for all your kind words, we look forward to your next visit.

We booked the Superior King Size Suite, and it was well worth the money. Our comfy king bed was a spacious retreat every night after soaking in the deep wooden tub--big enough for two. Water was warm also in the shower. The AC worked great and the surrounding hills provided a beautiful view from the balcony. The hotel arranged all our tours, including a river raft ride and an all-day car hire to the rice terraces and traditional long hair show. Taxi to the hotel from the airport cost about 350 RMB, and it was around an hour drive. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. I could eat another plate of crispy sweet and sour pork right now, with a banana shake! Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

I can't praise it enough. I booked tea cozy based on #1 ranking on TripAdvisor and many good reviews. I'm glad that we stayed there, now it is part of our family memory, the beautiful , peaceful morning on the balcony, tasty food from the cozy cafe. Amy and Bella were so nice and helpful. We rented bikes , rode along the yulong river, and stayed away from the crowd. Tea cozy is best of the best.

This gem is a little way out of Yangshuo, which you will be grateful for once you arrive. You can easily jump in a cab and hit the town from here if you want to, but it's so nice you might not bother.

The rooms are spacious, well decorated and have balconies. The staff are so incredibly helpful you won't get stuck with anything. There is bicycle hire on site and they will also organise drivers for you if you need them.

The food was amazing, some of the best we had in China. I recommend the Chinese breakfast and the Sichaun pork.

We have traveled to China 4 times now. We have stayed in several cities and been in several grades of hotels. We found that the Tea Cozy was a wonderful example of a boutique hotel that has done it's research on what western travelers are looking for. The rooms were clean and decorated in a fashion that made each a unique experience. I travel the world and have stayed in many countries. I look for many things in hotels but the main points I like to see is clean rooms, cold AC, comfortable beds, good pressure in the shower and well functioning plumbing in the room. The Tea Cozy did great in all these areas. After touring all day in the hottest time of the year the Tea Cozy provided a welcoming Oasis to return to. The service is wonderful and the kitchen was amazing. As they will tell you they serve both Chinese and western dishes. If you don't see what you like they will do their best to create it. They will even let you come to the kitchen yourself and cook a special dish if that is your desire. We had no issues with anything on the menu and even returned the afternoon after we checked out to have lunch before returning to Guilin we liked it so much. They are located in the rural farm area just outside Yangshuo so are close enough to get to anything in town but far enough away to provide a peaceful retreat. I enjoyed walking in the path between the rice paddys in the morning light and taking pictures of the fields and scenic mountains. I would gladly recommend this hotel to anyone, they have created a wonderful retreat in a beautiful location. It will be a part of our future trips to China. The best part was the owners and people who worked their. We immediately felt welcome and they were so helpful with out requests and needs.

Room Tip: They have no elevator so I would recommend higher floors for the view but take the stairs into consi...

Tea cosy was everything that we could have wished for and more!
The location is perfect. About 3 km out of town in a quiet countryside location. Close enough to town for convenience but away from the hustle and bustle and the perfect cycling distance from the rafting. The free shuttle mini bus to town leaves and returns three times a day or alternatively a taxi one way should cost 30 yuan.
The rooms are great. very comfortable beds with fresh white linen and boutique hotel decor, each room is different.
The food was delicious. The menu has a perfect blend of Chinese and western dishes and food can be ordered at any time of the day. It was not un common for us to order food at 10.30pm after spending the evening playing cards on the terraces and sharing a pot of the delicious range of teas available.
An added bonus we didn't expect was the hospitality. Amy and her team were fantastic. Always smiling, efficient and hospitable. NOTHING was too much trouble.
They booked and arranged tours and activities with no hard sell and everything we did was slightly 'off the beaten track' and away from the hoards of tourists and the over crowded hot spots... They genuinely made every part of our Yangshou experience perfect.
We were so sorry to be leaving. We stayed 4 nights but could easily have stayed longer.

Room Tip: It's quite a climb up several flights of stairs to the top floor rooms. After a day hiking or cy...
