“No electricity or hot water”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012

Pros: good location, within walking distance of things you want to see.

Cons: bathrooms dirty, on second day hot water disappeared and never returned, on second night electricity disappeared and never returned, beds hard as rocks, hotel open so anyone could wander up to rooms in the front building.

Stayed here on a tour, would not recommend.

Stayed October 2012, travelled solo

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

even though we had a busy road outside the building, I loved the view we had from the window. You can see those hills surounding the city , it is very pretty .
the room was big enough. Big bed and clean sheets.
Yangshuo town is not that big, but the location of the hotel is still very good. It's around the corner from the streets with shops, restaurants and bars. You can rent a bike from there and go for a ride through the country side. it is also within a walkable distance from the river where you can go on a bamboo rafting down the Li river.
the hotel offers free wifi in the lobby and the bedrooms.
but this is no restaurant or breakfast and worse ... no lift ! dragging my heavy suitecase to the 3rd floor was hard.

but I would still recommend this hotel. clean , quiet, and good location

Pros: decent view, central location
Cons: no elevator (3 floors), mouldy, dirty, watched staff clean drinking glasses with used towels off floor, needs updating
Alternative: try the Bamboo Village Resort at 10 Chengzhong Rd great restaurant, newer hotel, inexpensive and very friendly English speaking staff

Well located property. Request a room off of the main road. We were on the main road, and even with ear plugs, it was very loud. This was one of the most clean hotel I stayed at while in China. As other reviews mentioned, there are no extras here: No elevator, no pool, no internet, no lounge.

Simple modern hotel in centre of town.
Good location.

Disadvantage: no elevator and no assistance in bringing the luggage up.
Breakfast is offered (at costs), but is much better in town.

I liked this hotel (were in the new section out front), but there were a LOT of stairs to climb to room on 4th floor.
Room was relatively clean & had someone's free wifi in it. A view of the karsts outside was fabulous. Was a little off the chaotic tourist road, but really, really close to walk, so I viewed this as a bonus.

Room was quite clean.

Room Tip: In new section out front with view of karsts

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

The Li River Hotel is OK, for somewhere affordable and reasonably well-located in Yangshuo. It doesn't have any extras, like a pool, or a lounge, or internet use. The included breakfast is a fixed menu which is not particularly apetising, but edible. The front desk staff speak English well and try to be helpful, but they didn't manage to get anything done about the one big problem my friend and I had for ages. This was that the key card didn't work to open our door, so we had to keep coming back to reception to get someone to come and let us in. Each time they'd say "we've fixed it now" or "we'll fix it by the time you get back this afternoon", but it never worked. This went of for a day and a half, before finally they did get an engineer to rectify the problem and we could come and go freely.
