Morning Sun Hotel
Ranked #28 of 475 Hotels in Yangshuo County
Reviewed September 24, 2009

Prior to our trip to China, I e-mailed the Morningsun to make a reservation. The quick response indicated that they would reserve our room and only requested that we let them know in advance if we were not coming. On arrival, we were thrilled with the location, which is right in the middle of the town. Within a short walk, there were many great restaurants, the outdoor market, cormorant fishermen, atm's, used book stores, etc. I think they can arrange a tour of the area and the Li river, but Lilly Lu (who we also found on Trip Advisor) was our guide. The Morningsun is a Chinese hotel with a lovely open courtyard, a comfortable lobby area, and friendly staff. My husband wasn't happy with the air conditioner in the first room, so they gladly moved us to another room. While it is an older hotel, you can't beat the price and the location. This little town is charming and being right in the middle of it, made our experience so enjoyable. Don't miss the light show if you go here!

Thanks for the nice review. Actually the hotel was just built in 2002, but in this humid climate buildings start to look old quickly. And in 2012 we have completely remodeled and upgraded every room.
Hope to see you again,
Frances

We found this hotel through Tripadvisor and another on-line travel guide. It's just a bit off from the center of all the action (and noise) and across the street from the beautiful lake. Staff was helpful and friendly and spoke English very well. We had a triple room with a balcony which was a cozy place to sit and read in the sun. The beds are hard but that's the norm in China. Two highlights for us were renting bikes and riding along the small river (not the Li, but the one where the bamboo rafts go), and watching some local performers in the town park. Easy and lovely place to spend three days and a good launch into the backcountry.

Great location, just off West Street. Really friendly staff. Room at front can be noisy from street noise but overall great place for the price we paid.

Absolutely charming. The rooms, located around a large, open marble staircase, were comfortable and quite clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The girls at the desk went above and beyond to make our stay in Yangshuo very enjoyable. They helped us book our balloon ride and rent scooters, and also arranged transportation for us to and from the airport in Guilin. The location is excellent - on a cul-de-sac near the main shopping and restaurant area. Yangshuo is well-worth the journey from the busier, more congested city of Guilin. I would definitely go back both to Yangshuo and the Morningsun.

We are a family of 4 and have just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay at the MorningSun. We stayed in a triple room with an extra bed and a large balcony which was perfectly suitable. We definitely recommend staying at this hotel for the personal service that Frances and her staff offer. They all speak good English and really try their best to organize transport/activities to your requirements. You get the feel it's a family business that the owner takes pride in. We like the hotel for the traditional feel of it - it's not 5 stars but certainly pleasant and especially for the very reasonable cost. Being China, there's always hiccups but they were able to assist in resolving matters. We arranged bikes through them (with helmets) along with a guide and arranged transport to Xingping and to the show at night which is definitely not to be missed. All the costs are reasonable. Yangshuo is wonderful - good variety of food with sightseeing and biking and shopping - something for every member fo the family!

This hotel is a little noisy, but certainly less so than anything on a more busy street. Probably one of the quiter places in town comparatively. If you're really concerned about noise get a room at the back which faces a small pond.

The service here was great though. I used the hotel to arrange a trip to villages and a river raft trip. The guide who works for the hotel was flexible at customizing the day to see what I was interested in and we toured many small villages not on the tourist trail.

One thing about this place is that it's an open layout - there's a courtyard and open stairway in the center so any noise anywhere in the hotel is transmitted throughout. This is typical of traditional design though and the authentic atmosphere more than makes up for the lack of sound proofing.
