We've stayed here 3 times. This year we brought a large student group. Some of us stayed in the hotel and many students were in Cosy Garden across the street. The rooms are comfortable. The restaurant food is tasty; excellent breakfasts and good Chinese food, with fresh locally-sourced ingredients. The setting is very beautiful...truly a retreat. But the best part...

The hotel was in a convenient area, it was about a 20 minuet walk to the centre, the hotel also provided a shuttle bus to the centre which was helpful. The room was large with chairs and coffee table but a little dated, the beds were clean and comfortable. the shower was over the toilet which we didn't like and...

We stayed here thinking it was close to town walking distance. Mistake, actually quite far to walk under the unbearable heat of South China in the summer. However, they do offer a free shuttle to and back from town every 30 min and we took advantage of it. Place is beautifully looked after and far away from the noise and...

This was the final place we stayed in our three week trip through China. It's tucked away outside the main town of Yangshuo, though it's an easy walk or bike ride into the town centre. Compared to other places we stayed this was probably the least modern and the least luxurious but it was fun, comfortable and friendly. We had...

The room was excellent. I didn't care about the shower room "with a view". The food was good and the staff entertained us by playing the zither. We were finishing a trekking holiday at Yangshuo. I would love to go back there and see a bit more of the place.

Many Westerners coming and going, so it's easy to meet and chat. Staff is friendly and helpful. They have bed heaters! Loved that! The little huts for sitting outside are spacious with electrical outlets and fans. Complimentary bottles of water offered daily. Didn't like that the shower is basically over the toilet so after showering the toilet and floor at...

This place is set off in the countryside, but near other buildings, and a short drive from Yangshuo town. It is a short walk from the river. They have really good food, and the guides they assigned us for our day tours were cheap and very professional. They were also great with our small children. We had a wonderful time...

This hotel shows up near the top of Trip Adviser reports and Agoda booking site as a top rated hotel. Bear in mind that this should not be presumed to mean that the hotel is a 5 star Hotel. It isn't. If you want a luxury hotel experience along the lines of a Sofitel or Grand Hyatt you would want...

Because of the rave reviews, I expected good service and got more than anticipated. The star of the hotel comes from it's friendly staff (who speaks great English) and it's beautiful location. Although not that close to the West Street, stay here if you prefer quiet nights and waking up to beautiful scenery. Their breakfast is delicious! I would have...

We had a great time at YVR. The location is a nice walk from the city center (there is a free shuttle if you want). We enjoyed walking by the river side and heading to our quiet retreat. Our room had nice mountain views as well. Bathroom/shower was not my favorite. Great view, but not super functional. At least our...
