“Great little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was a great little hotel. The decoration was very Chinese which was wonderful, as some of the other Chinese hotels we stayed in were charmless, depressing, business style.
I must admit it was very noisy as the street below and those close by, are full of bars, street hawkers, and PEOPLE!!
But we were supplied with ear plugs and slept quite soundly.
The room was beautifully clean. It was a surprise to have the toilet behind a curtain just a metre or so from the bed - but all part of the interesting experience of holidaying I guess.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is brilliant. We had a great time here, a highlight of our trip.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise, well located with friendly English speaking staff. Room was large by Chinese standards. Bathroom in western style and very modern. WiFi was free and so was morning fruit.
It is on a busy street that can be noisy, but that did not bother us as we were in center of town close to Li river attraction and city markets. We stayed 3 nights and would have stayed longer time permitting.

We were warned that the hotel suffered from the noise of the night life on West Street, but it was not to be as they had installed double glazing on our floor so we had a very quiet stay. We had a wonderful three nights in Yangshou in a really comfortable bed. The hotel is well positioned in Diecui Road which runs parallel to West Street and 200metres to the Li river. The hotel staff were very helpful and efficient. Breakfast was served at the Cafe on the corner of West Street for which you are issued with tokens and taken too the first morning. Excellent!

On arrival, we were welcomed with refreshments and hot towels. Rooms are tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Fantastic location just metres from West Street and the Li River. This is a very well run hotel in a wonderful town. We paid RMB380/night for a deluxe double room with small balcony looking over the street. Thoroughly recommended.

We where here for 4 unforgetables nights. First, it is a beautifull old style chinesse house rebuilded. The area is pricelees, just 10 metros from the corner where the west pedestrian street begins. The room for two, was exellent and every thing for 220 !!! Un believable. This little jewll dont have any thing to envie to 4 star hotels. They have two computers for free internet. The vegetarian restaurant, beautifull decorated is a peacefull and exquisite place to eat healthy, with rich flavours, not expensive and very very clean a very importan thing in China. The bed was just the best we had in china, even much much much bettter than the 4star hotel in shanghai called the Astor. The ladies do speak english, and at the restaurant too. Oohhh , the menu has pictures so u know exactly what u are eating. They were helpfull to us giving a lot of local information. So, if u want a coisy beautifull hotel this is your place. The tea area is as well so beautifull. Our stay at Yangshuo was better with this place. So pleasent.

Room Tip: The upper ones. The only tiny thing, they dont have stairs but dont need it, only one floor to go.

Lovely hotel, comfortable beds, tasteful decor, and very friendly, helpful staff. Location is convenient just a block from West Street and the river, but beware of the noise if you are an early or light sleeper. Our room had already been retrofitted with double glazed windows but the complementary ear plugs were still a welcome amenity. We were there over this year's Mid-autumn festival/China day holidays so the town was packed but we still felt quite at home in the hotel. My daughter and I are vegetarians so the restaurant was a wonderful accident, very good dishes for reasonable prices. The coffee shop off the lobby is also a nice place to watch the street life.

We will be back to Yangshuo but will probably look to stay outside of town next time; not because we didn't like Magnolia but just to enjoy the countryside--and to get some peaceful sleep :)

We spent our last night of our 3 week trip at the Magnolia Hotel as we wanted to go to the Impressions show and have a night in town. The hotel is lovely. We were upgraded to the Imperial Suite which was beautifully decorated and had a sitting area where you could sit and watch what was going on in the street below.

The staff on arrival were welcoming and spoke good English.

As stated in other reviews the street noise at night can be heard in the room but with ear plugs we still got a good nights sleep.

A great hotel.
