“Good View”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Its location is good, we merely walked about 5 mins to reach the hotel after the Liu San Jie show. We stayed at the highest floor that have a patio where have very nice view of the surrounding. However the rooms at this floor do not have window. Besides there was problem of hot water supply, the water temperature was beyond control, either too hot or too cold for shower. Breakfast wasn't good but did serve tasty hot soya milk.

The hotel is quite new, but the location is really good. It's close to the Li River, you can enjoy the beautiful view from the hotel. And the staff is really nice, they also give travel tips to the surrounding area.

Room Tip: higher floors have nicer views. and rooms next to the mountoun are quieter.

I stayed in this hotel for a few nights. The location is beautifully set right on the edge of the countryside. Views from the hotel are outstanding, especially if you get a room on the upper floors. From one of the common patios of the hotel you can see the Li River and surrounding mountains. You can easily access biking, hiking and walking paths that will take you right into the heart of the famous Yangshuo mountains. It is also 30 seconds from the Impressions light show, the most well-known night show in Yangshuo (definitely worth seeing!). The staff was extremely friendly an helpful. Most of the staff are local so they are knowledgable about where to go, how to get places, what to eat, the price of various attractions, etc... If you need transportation, tickets to the light show, a bicycle to rent or want to go on a bamboo raft the staff can help you arrange it, which is much easier than trying to do it on your own (especially if you don't speak Chinese!).

The downside is that it is about a 10 minute taxi ride (20 minute bike ride) to West Street, the main tourist area in town. If you are the kind of person that likes to party all night, stay out late and are into the bar scene this may not be the hotel for you because of the distance (it would be a long crawl back in the wee hours of the morning...). Also, not all of the staff speaks really good English so you might have to do some sign/body language.

I would definitely stay here again. I'm the type of person that prefers to get away from the crowds, so even though it was a little far from West Street (keep in mind though that Yangshuo itself is not very big) it was worth it. The countryside is much less crowded and noisy, and getting around on a bicycle was super convenient and easy. The breakfast buffet also wasn't too bad--definitely Chinese style. You should note that the hotel only offers Chinese food, but if you want Western food there are tons of options on West Street.

Bottom Line--Thumbs up for location, scenery and friendliness of the staff. Thumbs down if you want to be in the center of the action and love night life. Recommendations in Yangshuo include a bike ride through the countryside, a bamboo raft on the Li River or Yulong River, Impressions light show, and Moon Hill hike (incredible views and cool rock formations!).

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor to get the best views!

We are a couple with two kids and we stayed four days at Yangshuo River Valley Resort. The staff was very friendly and good with the children. We had a very big family room with 2 rooms and three King size beds and a beautiful view from the balcony. They organised a very good bicycle tour in the countryside and arranged tickets for the show in the evening. A good place to stay if you want to have a quiet night as it is a little bit out of town.

Room Tip: The top floors seem to be better as you are above other buildings and can get a nice view.
