I hate to complain about a trip to Beautiful Yangshuo, but I was "had". My wife and I booked the best room in the hotel, based on the official website. Room 1201, the corner room with the best view of the Li River. I know this because #1, my wife stayed up until 3 AM making sure she got the best room for me based on the web page and #2, I kept the key so that I could make an accurate Trip Advisor report. The room on the web site had a beautiful, unobstructed view of the Li River, almost 3 walls of river view. The room in real life had a huge, ugly Western restaurant blocking the view. In addition to being tricked about the view, the room was unbelievably cold and had no hot water. The TV didn't work until I made them change the broken electrical power strip. In a nutshell, the room sucked. I couldn't wait to get the heck out of there. On the bright side, the city of Yangshuo is beautiful and the people are friendly. I had a great time once I left the hotel, warmed up, and talked to the locals. DO go to Yangshuo, avoid Jan and Feb, but DO NOT stay at this hotel.
