This hotel was the choice of Exodus Tours and it was one of the cleanest on the tour. It is on the main road but our room was to the backside so it was quiet. The room was clean, even without mold in the bathroom. Breakfast was good if monotonous. West Street is about 1/3 of a mile away, to... More

The hotel has a run-down feel, but Yangshuo is a small town and this is probably one of the better hotels. It is well- located, just a short walk from the centre of town, the main shopping area and the river. The reception area is very nice and although the staff seemed to have limited English, they were friendly and... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights on an Exodus tour. The room we had was grubby and stale, had very hard beds and the air con didn't work. The only view was of the side of another building and the roof of something below us which obviously had prevented anybody ever cleaning the disgusting filthy windows. This was also... More

My room great ,some others on the tour not good. Dirty carpet and smell. My room was small but I had a great view. One of my students room had condos for sale and barely a window. Location was great. Steps from west street. Breakfast was very good too except for some stuff left in the dining room.

Walking to West Street takes about 10 minutes, along the shopping street. OR you may take the mini bus RMB1 to get to the hotel's entrance Room is clean, airconditioned, however WIFI is not available in room, or even at... More

I stayed here during my tour group's two night stay in Yangshuo. The location is great, you're only steps away from the heart of the town and West Street. The lobby is nice enough, as are some of the views. But here is a quick list of what we were greeted with upon entering our room: dirty sheets, a layer... More

Our agent booked this hotel instead of Li River Retreat so I was surprised when our transfer checked us into this hotel instead of one I thought would be more remote and scenic. However after a long trip from the Longjii rice terraces we were too tired to complain. This hotel is well located for everything but is very standard... More

Whether you like this hotel depends on what you are accustomed to. If you are used to hostels, then this hotel will probably serve your needs adequately. If you prefer more Western standards, you will find this location lacking. The room was in disrepair and dingy. The sheets and towels were stained, and the shower curtain was mildewed. The cleaning... More
