“Great price!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2012

So at 70 yuan this budget hotel represents good value.
The double room we had for 6 nights was small but had tv and aircon .
We arrived by bus so was very easy to find the hotel from the bus station , just a 5 min walk, with West Street and all its bars and restaurants just a 10 minute walk away.

However............................we had to ask to have the room cleaned after 3 days and after 5 had to demand that they change the bedding!
On our last night we had to be up the next morning early (7 am) for a flight from Guilin so asked if it was possible for a wake up call, we were told by the "helpful" owner perhaps we should use a mobile phone with an alarm as the staff would probably be asleep!? Hence a bad nights sleep before a long day travelling across half of China.
We also used the laundry service after 2 days which wasnt worth paying for.

I was dissapointed after reading all the good reviews on TA but actually feel that because we like to do things independantly and not go on "tours" which the hotel tried to sell us, they more or less werent bothered , even though we booked in for 6 nights.

Looking around Yangshuo there is loads of accommodation easily available for the same price so would probably look elsewhere next time.

We stayed in the West Lily hotel for three nights while travelling through China. It is a well kept hotel with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms, very helpfull and friendly owners. They went out of their way to help you with anything you needed, tours, bike rental or just general information. Just a 5 minute walk from the main town center, shops, bars and restaurants. In a perfect location to start a cycle tour to the mountains. They arranged cooking classes for us just outside of the town, which was amazing and the food was really good. The hotel is three or four stories high and doesn't have a lift, but that wasn't an issue for us. Great dumpling restaurant in the street and a little market just down the road. Would definitely go back if we're ever in Yangshuo!

At RMB70 a night for 2 of us, it was a real bargain. Its clean and comfortable even though it was a no frills option. Having said that, it is definitely better staying there than at a hostel because of the privacy (including the ensuite bathroom) it afforded. But to me the best thing about the stay was to meet the delightful young couple who ran the hotel. They gave us a lot of local information. They arranged for us to go on a bamboo raft "cruise" on Lijiang river from Yangdi, which included puting us on a local bus and arranging for someone to meet us at the end of the journey. They also arranged for us to be picked up to watch the Liu Sanjie show one evening and to observe commorant fishing on another. Their prices for all these excursions were very reasonable and well affordable. On the day of our departure, they arranged for a taxi to take us back to Guilin airport. It is not always that you encounter such attentive and helpful hospitality in China and we were blessed for having met them.

Room Tip: The front rooms faciling the road are slightly larger.

For budget travelers, this hotel is a sure shot in Yangshuo.

The room is cleaned every day, free wi-fi, hot shower, a/c. Plus, the staff is very helpful and friendly. 5 minutes walking from the bus station.

The owner speaks very good english, which is a must when you travel in China without speaking chinese!

There is no elevator so if you don't want to climb 5 levels with all your bags, try to have a room in a lower level ;-)

We spent 3 nights here having been recommended it by our son. The owners made us feel very welcome and were very helpful about booking buses and taxis. The room was fairly basic but had everything we needed and was clean. We had breakfast there one day and it was good. The beds were very hard but that is standard for China.The hotel was very good value.

Room Tip: The twin rooms are a lot larger than the doubles.

I thought the location of this hotel is good - not far from the centre (a pleasant walk), but away from all the night-time noise of Yanshuo.
We were on the top floor of the hotel which was quite a haul up the stairs at the end of each day - but okay.
The owners were very helpful. We booked Sanjie Liu show with them - excellent!
I did not find the rooms unclean - but also did not feel that they were cleaned each day. (We were also spoiled by our previous hostel in Guilin where, unusually, the beds were made-up each morning). Our bathroom had no window, which I do not like.....and one morning the toilet was blocked with toilet paper - and was found the same way when we came back to our room that evening. I thought the bathroom taps were VERY dangerous - particularly with children; instead of mixer taps, both the hand-basin and shower had separate hot and cold taps - and the water from the HOT tap was SCALDING! I burnt myself a couple of times and was terrified the children would be scarred for life!
We did not eat here at all, partly because there is a wide choice in Yangshuo itself.
