This is a lovely, clean, and quiet place to stay just outside Yanshou. We came from Guilin by boat and once off the dock, walked about a mile to the hotel. As we were there for the May 1 holiday, this place offered so much peace and quiet compared to central Yangshou that was about to burst with domestic tourists....

Yangshuo was one of our last stops on a 3-week tour across China and the perfect place for a few rest days (partly planned and partly mandated by downpours!). The suite we had on the 2nd floor was amazing: extremely spacious with beautiful views of the river and mountains from huge picture windows on 3 walls. Staff were very helpful...

Beautifully situated with a great scenary. We came here after weeks in big cities and enjoyed very much the calm and the landscape. Yangshuo and the river Li is a must in China. We hardly went into Shangshuo but, a part from river rafting and biking tours, stayed at the hotel, eat good food and walked in the area. Some...

We stayed here for three nights - for us it was lovely - a little out of town so it was quiet with great river views. It was being managed by an Australian guy and his family. At most I could have recommended a coat of paint in a few places but he told us that the week after we...

Dear Jonathan, Yes, it is a great shame that the Li River Retreat has to close. In the long run it will be for the better as the new building will be much better suited to being a hotel. We expect it to reopen sometime late 2016. In the meantime, we have setup what we think is a lovely option...

I stayed there for a long weekend. Here is my summary: - AMAZING VIEWS - The hotel has amazing views of the mountains out of the room balconies or the entrance patios. Really breathtaking and some of the best in the area. - PEACEFUL LOCATION - The hotel is a 10-15 min pleasant walk to the center of town. Downtown...

We stayed during the off season, so crowds were very thin to start, but we could see how nice it would be to stay here during the peak tourist season as well since you're a bit removed from the bustle of West Street. The lodge is a ~15 minute walk from 'downtown' Yangshuo on a pleasant paved road along the...

We booked ahead to score the nicest room at Li River Retreat and it was lovely with a beautiful balcony overlooking the beautiful Li River. There were two huge air con units which completed negated the summer heat. The town is a 15-20 walk or a 5 minute taxi ride away although the town can be extremely touristy and it...

Listen, this property is fine. There are no big issues with the place. All the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor that you're reading are for the most part accurate. But there is something I feel the need to express and perhaps to caution potential travelers. Originally, I booked for 5 nights, 6 days, and as I suddenly couldn't make the...

The place is perfect for those who look for a quiet, relaxing getaway. The hotel is in the middle of no where hence, options for food or shopping is limited to none. You can get a taxi to town (35¥) or rent a bike from the shop 100m outside the hotel. It's gonna be hard and does not look safe...

“Choose a room on the first or second floor as the restaurant is just outside the groundfloor rooms. For some this might be comfortable though.”
