Excellent location it is not far from west street and near the bus station. But the hotel is right next to the river and a small dock. And they have traditional living room with wood stove. It is a very comfortable and cozy in this chilly winter.....love....

I stayed in Xi Town for 3 nights with my girlfriend, 2 months ago during the summer. The location is truly amazing, and thanks to the big terrace : it overlooks the li river (you are just above the water) and the mountains all around. It's an amazing terrace for meals, or reading a book.. So beautiful and relaxing.
It's quite romantic as well in the evenings, with the lights on the faraway bridge and some local houses living on the other side of the river. Our room had the same room, though we didn't have a balcony. (We didn't spend much time in the room, but it was really nice. First impression was good and stayed that way. Attention for detail in decoration and comfortable bed... and beautiful view!)
The staff was really friendly, which is always a good surprise... The boss hangs around the place as well, he doesn't speak English but not much is needed (hand gestures :) for communication.
The food was really good, western as well as Chinese (though I stayed away from dishes I thought i would dislike, of course). They have two small kittens that are terribly cute and not too shy, it makes the place seem even cosier.
Yangshuo center is quite busy and crowded, but this hotel is located in a quiet spot at the riverside, and 5 minutes walking away from West Street.
It was a great place to stay and if there weren't so many other places to try out, we would definitely stay there again. Though we will go back to enjoy meals on their terrace! :)

Room Tip: I think that any side you pick a room should have a nice view (mountains at least), but it's rea...

We stayed here, despite the very few reviews it had both on Agoda and on Tripadvisor, due to the beautiful pictures and the low cost. I didn't have any expectations on arrival.

When we got here, we checked in about an hour early, and were asked to wait. I looked around and there was a great little sitting area where there was a pool table, a television, two guitars and some other fun stuff to do. Great!

We checked in after a couple games of pool and were taken up to our room, which was large with a partial river view (for the lowest price room, which was around £30ish). Great.

The hotel itself is about a five to eight minute walk from West Street, away from the more crazy areas, yet close enough to walk over to for dinner and a wander, which was perfect for us.

We stayed here for four nights, and had a great time. Our only downside was that the breakfast that is complimentary is pretty horrific - and I'm half Chinese, so it's not that I don't like Chinese food at all. Breakfast was congee, with no flavouring and one of those dough sticks you can put in, which was tasteless as well and of an awful texture. We had to skip eating these, and ordered off the menu instead. We were pleasently surprised by the quality of food that came off the menu, and ended up having a few meals here (and skipping breakfast!). They have a nice area to eat in, with an outdoor area that looks over the river as well - beautiful place to be. They also have the sweetest little cat which entertained us for hours on end while it rained.

The bed was of good quality, the cleaning staff were superb, the room was nice and the staff were friendly (though some didn't speak too much english). And the coffee was fantastic as well.

I highly recommend staying here, despite the few reviews it has - and none so far in English! It's a great little place, decently priced and in a great location with lovely staff. We really enjoyed ourselves.
