We visited the lovely Yangshuo in April along with 14 other photographers on a 25 day tour of
China. During this time we used 11 different hotels and this one was the worst by far. On the credit side of the ledger, I have to note that the hotel was well placed within easy walking distance of "West Street" and the river, adjacent to a park and very near to the city markets. Also on the credit side is the fact that the rooms were equipped with all the amenities one needs......they were just very tired and dated.
Our allocated room was comfortable but the curtains were drawn - we opened them and found a wall a metre away! We closed them and got used to all the lights being on when ever we were in the room. Colleagues whose room was on the other side of the corridor report that they looked down onto the very grubby roof covering the central courtyard where breakfast was served. We were able to observe rooms at the front of the hotel. These looked over the park, were large and may have been recently refurbished.
Skip cereals at breakfast there was plenty of other things on offer.
We loved Yangshuo and recommend visitors go "Impressions of Liu Sanjie, a spectacular evening show on water. We also recommend visiting the Yulong River and taking a bamboo raft down stream. If you visit the market in the morning you are in for a surprise - check out the meat department.
