This hotel was fantastic. Good views, EXCELLENT staff, great rooms. We were very satisfied by its amenities and were so thankful for its service. We recommend the kayaking tour they set up for us, too!

Our room is on the riverside so we do have a peek-a boo-view through all the tall trees. The room cost only 180rmb so it is good value for a budget hotel. All the staff that works there are very friendly and helpful. They even provide umbrellas in the lobby on rainy days.
We ate lunch at the hostel once and had an enjoyable and relaxing time with a few beers!
This is one of the hotels that was recommended by our lovely guide Lilly and we are more than pleased with her suggestion!

We were highly satisfied with our 3 nights in the spacious and clean room, great service and location of the hotel. Plus points also for free internet, cheap bike rental and good breakfast. Best accomodation I had in China.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The staff was phenomenal, with information about the area and our future travel plans. The ability to speak English was appreciated, as our Chinese is limited. Even the cleaning staff had a smile.

The location was perfect - the view of the river from the balcony was awe-inspiring, and the relative quiet and distance from the hubbub of Yangshuo's nightlife meant that we had peaceful sleeps!

This was my second choice if Li River Retreat had been full. Location was good, overlooking Li River, but just around the corner to the bustling west street. Even though we didn't stay, we ate there and it was good. Rooms looked good in the brochure.

We stayed here last July for 4 nights, and again this May for 5 nights. The rooms are clean and roomy (for China). The balcony is a plus. The manager and staff are friendly, and arranged a bamboo raft trip on the Li river, a guide for a bike ride to Liugong (which we could never have found on our own), and a taxi to the airport. The hotel is away from the crowds of West street. The terrace at the Inn on the corner provides a nice, fairly quiet, place to sit, eat, and watch. And free wi-fi!

My father and I really enjoyed our stay at the Riverview Hotel. The staff was super friendly , spoke good Englih and very helpful, especially the manager Rocky. He helped us arrange all activities during our 3 night stay and we had a wonderful time in Yangshuo. The room was spacious and clean, great value for the money. Be aware of the mosquitos, ask the manager, Rocky, and he will place an air despensing device to keep the bloody insects away. Location is ideal as well, right by the river. The street can be a bit noisy if you are a late sleeper, but we didn't mind since we got up early every day. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and family.
