“Great Location, Great Service!”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

We booked here last minute after another hotel did not meet our expectations. The staff were very helpful and let us see all the types of rooms so we could get the right ones for our group. The rooms are big and face the river with private balconies. The staff responded quickly to our requests for extra blankets and provided a space heater when our room didn't warm up much. We had laundry done there and while it wasn't ready when they said it would be they got it to us later in the day which worked for us. This is a good place to stay for your time in Yangshuo - it's close to the river, shopping and restaurants.

Nice property with good modern facilities. Not really a "view" property as the trees block the river view and when the river is low it's not all that super of a sight anyway (sorry Yangshuo tourist center). Good heat in the rooms, but like many other hotels in the area, no heat in the lobby for the free internet or their restaurant. Staff was pleasant but it seemed they were living on their having been listed in the guide books with just a bit of "attitude" and a bit pricey. Still all in all a very reasonable choice for lodging.

There really is no other place to stay when you are staying in Yangshuo.

The location is perfect over looking the river, close enough to West street, but far enough away to be quiet.

Be sure to request a 4th floor balcony room overlooking the river.

The only negative I have is that the showers are small and prefab. But besides that our stay was perfect.

Stayed there for 4 days a week ago. Large comfortable room, very large balcony overlooking the river. The usual rock-hard mattress! Quiet, but very close to town centre. Cost? 248 yuan per day.
Also has a very good restaurant serving both Western & Chinese food. Overall - the best hotel in our 10 day stay in China.

Room Tip: Its a little more expensive - but try & get room with balcony!

Wer really enjoyed our stay at the River View Hotel. You must accept that this is not a five star hotel. I certainly believe you get more than what you pay for. We had arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport. That went accoring to plan. Hotel is far enough away from the main tourist street to provide some peace and quite. It is advisable to take ear plugs as locals tend to use the river front as a meeting point after establishments close, and it can get noisy late in the night. Rooms are clean and have all the necessary ammenities. Internet is free, and all staff seems to speak enough English to organise tours, tickets and drivers. Restaurant food is ok for what you pay. Only negative, bathroom sign says not to flush paper down the toilet, but place it in basket. Ignored that request. Others also appeared to have ignored this request, but were not so lucky. One couple were at the front desk, asking for a plunger after encountering some problems.
