“A good choice”
Review of River View Hotel

River View Hotel
Ranked #45 of 117 Restaurants in Yangshuo County
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 July 2014

First the location : 2 mins walk from the few market streets, so you can get animation in the evening and plenty of places to eat (touristic restaurants...), but the hotel remains peaceful
Rooms are nice, quite simple, and quite different from each other... (We booked 6 different rooms). So if you have a choice ask to see the available rooms before taking them, I won't say some are better than other, they are just different. The room with views have windows or balcony on the Li river, but between, you have the road and huge trees mostly blocking the view.
Amenities are basics, wifi in the room (every room has it's own router, so the signal is ok but the speed is very average). Beds are Chinese aka very firm...
The staff in this hotel speaks a good English and are really nice! Of course they will try to sell you their tours (which are the same price than anywhere else) but even if you don't they are always ready to help you.
Breakfast was nice, many different choices on the menu (no buffet), and suitable for westerners.
It wasn't my first time in Yangshuo, but this is so far the best hotel I've been in. There are probably better hotels there but the price is fair and the staff is great, so I can recommend this place. Don't come here just for the view or you'll be disappointed.

We stayed and ate here for a second time with our family.

The location is great- right along the river. It's a perfect place for some tea and Baozi (or toast if you prefer) on a lazy morning.

We are here twice for breakfast during our stay. The omelets are tasty (it's not exactly what you'd get in Europe or the US, but still good).

For a Chinese breakfast, try the Baozi! Yum!!
They are rice-flour dumplings with meat inside. (Like a sausage biscuit, perhaps).

The atmosphere and location are great, the food is good!

As a foreigner living in China, it's nice to occasionally get away and have some Western food. River View Hotel offered just that.

I had eggs, toast and sausage. Besides the toast being smothered in garlic butter, the breakfast was very good. It was just nice getting eggs and sausage instead of the usual baozi or porrige but, [if your only visiting China for a short time, you should at least try the baozi and porrige].

The service was very helpful, the food was good (not great), and the location was perfect: on the river (as the name implies) and just a short walk to all the Yangshuo shops.

Overall, we had a great experience and are heading back again soon!

We stayed for two nights in this hotel in a triple bedroom. The bedrooms are not that great, however the best part of this hotel is the location and the service of the staff. The location is just a couple of minutes away from the busy city center, with a great view over the river. The staff is super friendly and arranged all the tours and gave us plenty of useful information about what to do in town. Overall I recommend this restaurant, not for the hotel facilities but for what is essential when we do a low budget trip... Good location and good service.

Although next to the tourist center, we felt truly relaxed here. The restaurant offers local and western food, which ment I could try new stuff while my daughter ate "safely". Great base to explore the amazing country side. They rent bikes.
The room was spacious enough and comfortable.
