“Perfect location”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

One of the best hotels we stayed in. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Breakfast was excellent - by far the best we had in China. Location was perfect for the town being only a few minutes walk away.

Nice small hotel. Close to the action. We stayed as part of tour group. To go see the Impressions of Sister Liu Show. The show was a highlight of our trip to China [one of the highlights]

We spent two nights in this hotel as part of a 3 week tour of China. The first night was spent in room 216. This is a room to avoid. It is long, sparse and the window overlooks a small yard full of rubbish and a car park with small motor bikes that serve the police/army barracks just behind.
The lighting was so bad - probably to disquise how dirty and worn the room was - that it was impossible to even read a book. It was also next to the only lift in the hotel and above the kitchens. The lift smelled over poweringly of cooking at all times.
After complaining, we were moved to a higher floor to a smaller but much more comfortable room.
We arrived for breakfast at 8.30am to find that only our two places remained laid and we had to ask for the chef to return. There were piles of "clean" crockery stacked on the side table most with chipped rims.
As part of our local tour river rafting we were served lunch In the restaurant downstairs facing walls stained black by infiltrated rain water.
Luckily Yanshuo has many good restaurants and the hotel is only a short walk from the centre. In the street opposite we found a laundry, next door a small supermarket and, just outside the hotel, is a fruit and vegetable market which has been misrepresented in some publicity photos .
Obviously this is a hotel that caters mostly for groups on a budget and does not see the need for costly improvements!.

The rooms met basic needs, but it was by no means a 4 star hotel. Not super clean, but not smelly ar moldy. Upon arrival AC worked in only one of our two rooms. Meals eaten were adequate, but you wouldn't go there for dinner. Local food was much better than the western style (to be expected here).
Staff was very friendly and more than happy to help with anything we asked about.
View of the mountains out the back window was fabulous.

Room Tip: 3rd floor gets very warm because of the hot air rising in the central courtyard/dining area.

The hotel is decent enough, but I was shocked to hear that it had four stars. It most definitely isn’t that nice, although I’m not sure if Yangshuo has much more to offer. The rooms are starting to show their age and the breakfast wasn’t anything to brag about.

Spent a night here after travelling by boat up the amazing Li river. Not too far from West Street which is great for shopping (particularly if you like to barter). Rooms comfortable and hotel location fairly quiet; got a good nights sleep. Only had breakfast here which wasn't the best on the trip. Whilst here went to see Impressions of Lui Sanjay (not sure if thats spelt correctly), if you are here, its a must do.
Yangshup has an alpine resort/hippy paradise feel about it - lost of backpackers here.

The rooms were simple, but clean, dry and a pleasure to stay in. The breakfast was a little let down by the water powdered milk, terrible coffee and the not brillian lunch. apart from that, the hotel was nice and dry.
