Location is far and hard to find, but the view is worth it! The staff is great in every way, even the ones that don't speak English. All friendly, always smiling. You can rent a motorcycle in the hotel to go get around, but be really carefull because everyone drives REALY bad.

Very attentive service, enthusiastic to help us get good deals on transport and activities. Good, clean rooms newly outfitted with cedar fixtures. Our shower backed up a little bit; asked the owners son to fix and he did but it started backing up again. Internet in rooms was okay for web surfing but a little to slow for netflix or...

I stayed here for 3 nights on a school trip. Room price was a real steal for what we got. The rooms are huge! As described before - they are modern, with an asian feel. Bathrooms vary from room to room, mine could have done with some updating. But the shower was powerful enough and water was always hot. Little...

The staff here cannot do enough for you. The rooms are spacious and clean with a mixture of modern and authentic decor. Apart from a few intruding giant moths, the bathroom too is really clean with a powerful dual shower. (Hot water takes forever though.) Lovely to have a Balcony, albeit small. Excellent value for money at just $32 a...

We stayed at Riverside Retreat in the summer of 2012 (it is not possible to put this date under the review). We were there for about a week. We had a beautiful family room with plenty of space for us and our two children. We loved the location of the Riverside Retreat. It is in a small sleepy town, where...

Very nice hotel, quite clean, my room was like almost new. My friends and parents got two rooms with a fantastic view on the moutains. It is calm place, we've met a couple that came here because it was too noisy in town. My only complain was the air conditionning electric fan outside that was making a very big noise...

Our experience at the Riverside Retreat couldn't have been better. Our rooms were newly refurbished and offer amazing views. It's positioned perfectly - just a 10-15min bike ride from West Street (西街),but still very quiet and peaceful at night. The staff was very charming and of great help with setting up activities and transportation for us. On our last day...

I'm giving this "Retreat" 2 stars simply because of the view. We arrived at this establishment late in the evening so the view in the morning was its only reprieve. The smell of raw sewage from the bathroom made it impossible to use. Sheets on the beds were ripped and beds like rocks. Incredibly disappointed. We were booked in for...

I spent a week at the Riverside Retreat. Everything was excellent. I flew into Guilin and a car from the hotel was waiting for me. The staff was friendly and spoke good English. The room was comfortable with a a great view of the karst peaks. The breakfast was not your typical Chinese breakfast, but a western breakfast with eggs,...
