West Lily Hotel
Ranked #136 of 450 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 December 2013 via mobile

This hotel is clean, warm & comfortable with western toilets, hot showers & wifi. It is located in a quiet laneway a few minutes walk away from west street.

The beds are quite hard but not uncomfortable. The staff were friendly & helpful. I felt we got great value for a great location.

First off, if you are looking for an extravagant hotel with 5 star service and panoramic views you need to look somewhere else. West Lily is your down the line cheap and cheerful holiday hotel which offers exactly what you would expect. The rooms are clean and well appointed with western toilets and flat screen televisions. The beds are somewhat hard but still comfortable. The hotel is located in a yangshuo alley that is a bit quieter then other parts (i.e. west street).

The owner speaks relatively good english and has hire bikes, tours and advice on offer. For the price you are going to pay this is a great option for those staying for 1-7 days and is a great option for those on a budget.

Room Tip: this hotel has no elevator so its a toss up between the noisier but more convenient lower level room...

We stayed in a triple room for 5 nights in West Lily Hotel. We would highly recommend it to other travellers.

There's not much to complain about regarding the West Lily Hotel. It's cheap, the rooms are good, the staff is friendly and helpful, the location is good, their tours are reliable and well executed.

There's no elevator and with ground floor plus 4 more, there are many stairs to walk. The noise from the street can be disturbing for light sleepers. We stayed on the top floor but it didn't seem to help much. They also have no kitchen, but there are plenty of food options on the same street. The ground floor lounge wasn't too big, but we didn't feel a need to hang out there anyway.

Room Tip: Choose lower level floors if you don't want to walk the stairs.

Went there in late November 2011.
Stayed there for 3night. Wasn't exactly a hotel to me.. The place itself looks old and do not have much facilities but it was good enough. It was less than 10sgd per night if i remember correctly. Basic necessities are all provided.
I chose this place because of the review over here. it is located near the bus station and all the markets and entertainment areas.
What i like the most is the services provided there. The staffs are very friendly and will cater to you every needs. they even provided us a room and extra towels to bath after we checked out.
Do get tour packages from them. Is true you probably can find even cheaper deals out there, but why trouble yourselves when you can probably get everything done with a few more dollars. One recommendation is the water moon cave. you have to crawl in the cave to reach your destination - a mud bath... was pretty cool.

Do take note, there isn't any lift in the hotel. jus flight of stairs to climb. so take into consideration if you have elderly or kids with you.

Room Tip: Top Floor since less people will be walking around there but this means you have to climb up and dow...

we stayed here for four nights before our train journey from guilin... we paid 70 yuen for a double room with private bathroom which was ok.

we was on the fourth floor with poor wifi connection, also i agree with the last comment about no lift. for anyone with difficulties climbing stairs this place is not advisable.

The owners were friendly with little english but other then that we felt that we have had better service in previous hostels let alone hotels.

for someone who wants a cheap no frills room for a night or two then this hotel would be ok.
