Yangshuo Friend Hotel
Reviewed 26 June 2011

We stayed here for 5 days in June 2011. The location is the best you will get in Yangshuo; right in the middle of the centre but in a quiet street, across the big pond with an excellent view on the typical Karst-hills (if you think away the McDonalds sign).

The family is very friendly and speaks good english. It has a B&B feeling over it since the family also lives here. The food in the restaurant was good value for money, although we mostly snooped around in the neighbourhood.

The room was good value for money. I would recommend the balcony room; the balcony is very spacious and offers amazing views. The room itself was very basic and can use an update. The bathroom had a western style toilet but was simple.

Me (student in Shanghai) and my grand pa landed in this really nice place accidentally as we had not booked anything in advance. the place is very good located, right within the hot spot in yangshuo but far enough from the closest bar to have a very good night of sleep. the rooms were very clean, warm, hot shower, cheap, wifi in the rooms too, and even had a nice balcony! we had all our meals at the place because the main room had a good atmosphere and the staff was really relaxed, nice, and could speak English. on the last evening, i lost my passport and they manage to find it! they were really helpful. i would also recommend the travel agency right next to the 7th heaven hotel . the lady was nice and gave good advice without trying to rip us off. i definitely recommend this place! I'm even planning to go back there with a whole bunch of friends in May.

Just spent the one night here on our way to somewhere else. Hotel is in an excellent location - right by the shops, restaurants and nightlife. Room was basic, but spacious and clean. Staff was helpful enough. This would be a good place to stay if you're spending some time in Yangshuo and don't mind being right in the middle of the all the tourist hustle and bustle.

Our room was very comfortable with a balcony too! The downstairs cafe has fantastic food, don't have breakfast anywhere else! Their nightly movies are fantastic too, we watched "I Love You Man" under the stars! Go cycling in the countryside with their bikes for 10RMB, no deposit. I'd definitely come back. Ask for a discount if they organise your Light Show tickets.

I have just been too this friendly place watching a movie on the outdoor screen and having a late evening snack, all the while checking e-mails on the free WiFi of the cafe.
Service was good and in passable English, as was the menu. That has a good variety of western and chinese food and quite some alcoholic drinks from beer via wine to shots and longdrinks.
Prices are fair for the area (everything seems to be near double the price I payed in Beihai). Iced milk tea came for 12RMB, chocolate ice cream shake was 15, and about ten deep fried pork dumplings cost another 15RMB.
The location is nothing special but fine enough and the cafe itself is newish and nicely decorated.
They also have rooms there and it wasn't very loud outside the cafe. Have no idea about the prices though.
I would defenetly recommend this place over the Lonely Planet recommended Kelly's cafe.

The 7th Heaven Guesthouse is only 5 minutes walk from West Street. However, there are still a good number of cafes and shops close-by. There are a few hawkers selling food outside the property in the evening.
It is a small place, rooms are on 2 levels, probably 4 or 5 on each level. The single bed is actually big enough to accomodate 2 average size persons. They also have Triple Room, 1 queen size bed + 1 single bed. I have been told that all rooms have a balcony which overlook the street.
Shower and toilet are not separated, so the whole area gets wet when one has a shower but it did dry up quite quickly, no flooding like some. It is being cleaned everyday and towels get changed but they don't make beds. Our room was clean but the floor of the toilet could do with a good scrub.
There is a TV in the room with several channels and CCTV 9 English channel. Downstair is a good restaurant with WiFi service.
A very good budget place to stay.
