Li River Resort
Ranked #6 of 475 Hotels in Yangshuo County
Reviewed November 30, 2007

I chose this hotel because last time I visited Yangshuo my hotel, also good, was in the downtown area and I thought we'd like being outside the hustle and bustle that can be Yangshuo/West Street at night in particular. We actually spent so little time at the "retreat" due to our day excursions that I don't know that I'd book here again as we couldn't just drop into the hotel to drop off bags/change without arranging a "speedy" (small van - a taxi service) to take us home. We also had the speedy pick us up every morning. (The speedy rides are inexpensive at about RMB20 one way.) The retreat is definitely outside normal walking distance (and this comment from someone who runs all the time). If you try walking back at night, be sure to take a flashlight - it's pitch black. I booked a "deluxe double" (RMB320 - Room 305) for my brother and his wife. It had a small balcony and a view of the karst mountains. My "standard" room (RMB250 - Room 203) - one single and one double bed - didn't have a balcony or the greatest views, but it was much more spacious. We had breakfast in town every morning as the retreats meal service didn't start until later---and we were always up early for excursions. Take a hairdryer if you want one. Very clean/orderly and comfortable.

We stayed at the river retreat for 2 nights (20 & 21 ) August , we booked through the hotel website which was very quick and easy, before we travelled to china we asked the hotel via email about hiring bikes, tours etc and received quick responses, we used a website called yangers.com for good information.
Checking in/out was very easy with friendly staff, our room was very clean and tidy and quite spacious, with great views of the river/mountains. Breakfast is available (not included in your room rate) this is on a menu basis with a good selection to choose from. You can hire bikes from the hotel for 20 Yuan per day and the bikes are of a good standard, I would recommend hiring bikes to see the countryside along the river, you can also put your bikes on the back off the bamboo rafts if you want to!.
The staff on duty were a little vague with the details off trips you could book E.G. prices, timings of trips etc we decided to book trips in one of the booking offices in the town ( this was cheaper than the hotel)
Please be aware that between 9 - 4 pm approx (time can vary each day) you can not get to the retreat by motor vehicle due to the market. Also the retreat at night is a good 20 minute walk away on a dark road!!. However please note the following - you can easily arrange a taxi by going into the buffalo bar in town, which is connected to the hotel. If you arrive by boat you could drop your luggage off at the bar and have a look around town until the road opens. the taxi is 20 Yuan and runs until late at night!!
Overall if you are looking for a good clean, quiet place with great scenery then this is the place for you. We really enjoyed our stay.
