You will find many hotels on the booking sites. However, most are either on busy streets or 3 to 15km from the city center. We wanted to be close to town, but still enjoy a good night sleep. West Street region has many shops/restaurants/massage places, etc. It comes alive at night to the extend that you can't have a conversation... More

We loved this place! Our TWIN room had quaint and charming touches and a balcony overlooking the river - idyllic! Meals are available on the pleasant outdoor terrace and menu is in English. It is a short walk to West St - a pedestrian street/night market. The location is perfect - riverside promenade with shady trees across the narrow road,... More

the view from our room was great however it does have a downside- streetside hawkers/their customers can be quite noisy til the early hours 2-3am. Not constant but one night out of the 4, was not ideal. The room itself is average- some lights don't work, carpet was grubby, shower is small ,water pressure intermittent. It is very close to...

The people at this hotel are really nice -- and I hired one of them to take me out touring: he did a really great job! The room was well-furnished also. The bad news is that the noise from the street goes on late into the night, so do not expect to get any sleep until after 4 am. Crowds... More

Second visit to River View Inn. In 2012, the staff was incredibly pleasant & accommodating. This time, pleasant but not very helpful. Manager downright rude, at least by American standards. Held out her hand for money without looking up. Rooms are nice but not as clean as in past but OK. If you want a door on your bathroom rather... More

Travelling in China independently is tiring and can be quite stressfull if buying train tickets is involved. Here is a wonderfull little town, friendly and very traveller friendly.

We stayed here for one night in May 2016. The hotel staff is very helpful and speaks great English. We rented two bikes from them (no deposit needed) and they explained to us where to go for a nice afternoon tour. They also helped us booking a shuttle bus to the airport the next day. Don't forget to try their... More

My wife made reservations about 12 hours before arriving at the hotel (3am). They were able to give us a room with a balcony and a queen-sized bed, which was nice because when we arrived, it looked like they had a full house (the dining area was jam packed). The dinner was pretty good. The western food they served wasn't... More
