It was located in Jima, 15 minutes from Yangshuo by car. It is a very quiet and nice place next to Yulong River. Front desk was located around 150 meters away from the street; we had to follow some easy indications to get there. We had a very kind reception that included a delicious and refreshing tangerine juice. This accommodation... More

If you go to Yangshuo and want to see life outside the city center; this is a perfect place to visit. You can rent bikes, have dinner, sleep in nice and clean rooms with good showers. The staff is nice and speaks very well English. The surroundings are magnificent

I was told that the place was owned by some Dutch couple, whom I have never met. And, funny enough, I was taken there by a Dutch lady who was very familiar with everything Yangshuo. I have only had one lunch there, but consider the place to be worth mentioning. I have just arrived in this beautiful town. The same... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were a welcome change from the city hotels and we loved the homely feel. The service was warm and friendly and the food was good. The location is fantastic as you are so close the the farming families and a taxi ride away from the main markets and bars. I would definitely... More

My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The set up is very clean, rooms with AC and nice bed/sheets. Food was good and staff very nice. We went on a great 3 hour walk and the following day a 4 hour bike ride to Moon Mountain with a really nice local guide... More

The Outside Inn is generally a nice place - scenic, quiet, rustic, with a nice breakfast and friendly staff. But the first night, I had an unpleasant experience staying in a first floor room with a damp smell. I didn't think much of it when I first walked into the room, ignoring what appeared to me the smell of mold.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yangshuo Outside Inn - The Original Countryside Experience. The Outside Inn is a friendly small guesthouse with a unique character, located in a set of traditional farmhouses and an apartment building, ideally located just outside Yangshuo in a beautiful setting with lush gardens and the karst peaks right at your doorstep. The traditional farmhouses are renovated into comfortable rooms and family houses with western standards. Close to this complex of farmhouses is our apartment building with more modern family apartments and rooms. The Outside Inn offers guests a very quite place where you can experience the real traditional China. A stunning swimming spot at the Yulong River is a few minutes walk away and if you want total peace you can walk in 20 minutes to "The Lost World Plateau", a small field up one of the karst peaks where you are just by yourself surrounded by the mountains. ... more   less
