This hotel is in an ideal position when staying in Yangshuo. It is directly opposite the river and close the the shopping area of West Street. The hotel is a little tired. I must say that it one of the few hotels that we stayed in during our trip to China that had "soft Western style beds". The morning breakfast were adequate.

Stayed here two nights. Room was underwhelming. Front door got stuck on the ground, bed seemed to have permanent soft spot (or broken spring), and there was no separate space for the shower in the bathroom.

That being said, I did book the cheapest room - so your mileage may vary. Some of the other rooms appeared to be nicer in the other reviews.

Location was very good. Hotel is just off west street, so you're literally steps away from the hustle and bustle but far enough to avoid the noise. Staff was also friendly and helpful.

After having read the great reviews here and going to the Riverview after staying in a 5-star hotel in Guilin, the room came as quite a shock. No doubt one gets what one pays for but it didn't appear that well maintained or clean. Perhaps it was our luck but our bathroom was rather dimly lit and damp. The shower curtain was a bit moldy and there gaps around the bathtub. It looked scary under the basin / vanity top. Worst of all, both our toilets got blocked once during our 3 day stay.The list goes on......damp patch on bedroom wall, mosquitoes, lights and in-room telephones that didn't work......

The positives include the good location and great views when you are outside by the river. (There were many interesting activities going on and my pics try to show that and the surroundings). The reception staff spoke English and it was easy and convenient booking tours and activities. They gave a discount for the Liu San Jie sound and light show and we also arranged a guided cycling tour to Liugong ancient village with them which was the highlight of our stay. Had the "super breakfast" there one morning - it was good and very reasonably priced. Slept well too, surprisingly.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a riverside room on a higher floor for better views.

Located across the street from the riverfront promenade and a couple blocks away from the bustle of West Street, this hotel is quiet and convenient. Even the cheap rooms in the back have views of the limestone pinnacles that tower over the town. The front rooms on the upper floors are very nice and overlook the river through leafy trees. The staff speaks good English and the restaurant offers one of the most comprehensive Chinese menus in town. Great food, excellent prices. Try the Guilin style steamed bun for breakfast.

I had a really pleasant stay in River View Hotel. Yangshuo is quite a small city but I really liked the location! Very charming place with a very nice balcony just in front of the Li River. Next to the hotel there is a small local market where you can buy souvenirs and stuff and it is also 5 min walk to animated streets with bars and restaurants. It is though a calm place to sleep!
I stayed there 3 days and they helped me organize the visits I wanted to do with the time I had (if you want to fully enjoy the city, the area you should stay more). Also, I recommend you to do bamboo raft on Yulong River, it is gorgeous (better than the Li River I think)! Otherwise the staff is really nice and helpful especially Angela who is such a wonderful person and she can speak a perfect english! We had a chance to do a day trip with her and it was one of the best day of our week of vacation over China. I highly recommend this place and hope you will have the same experience as we had! Anaïs

Room Tip: I took a room in front of the Li River with a balcony and I was really satisfied. There is a good wifi and a flat screen (chinese channels but who cares when you are in a beautiful city?)
