As a 3* hotel, it's very good hotel. It's clean, tidy, and less than 5 m walk to the market street.

We recently stayed at this hotel as part of a tour of China. While the other hotels we stayed in were quite nice (4 and 5 stars), this one barely deserved a 2 star rating. When we first entered the lobby, it was dark and uninviting (despite being the middle of the afternoon). I assume the hotel was trying to conserve energy, so they shut most of the lobby lights off which made for a very dull first impression. We found our way to the room only to discover it was poorly appointed, not anything like the management pictures provided online, with water stains on the wall and a bed that was harder than the pavement outside. The towels provided were threadbare, complete with several large holes. Our breakfast, served in the charming lobby restaurant, was the least appetizing of the “western style” breakfasts we ate in China. The fruit was not replenished, leaving us with the scraps (despite being quite early in the morning), and the other selections were dry and tasteless. Luckily, our stay was short, and we were ready to depart for Shanghai later that morning. If we had stayed more than one night in this hotel, I would have asked our tour operator for a partial refund. There appear to be many hotels in Yangshuo, so shop around!
Easy walking to centre of town with a free water cooler in the foyer to quench thirst on return. Front desk staff offhand but room was large and airy with a comfortable bed. Stayed here for dinner and breakfast after a cruise down the Li river and had enjoyable meals both times with the breakfast buffet set up in the ground floor atrium. Recommend going to the nearby spectacular "Impression of Sanjie Liu" evening show if tickets are available as it is absolutely superb and a highlight of our stay.
This is a hotel catering to Chinese tour groups. Beds are 'hard' class. Slightly state-owned hotel feel about it all. Reception looks more like a train ticket office than a hotel reception. Food is served when the tour groups need it.
But it functions OK. The rooms are clean, bathroom nice if old, aircon working. Actually the TV did not work in my room - but not much to watch on it in Yangshuo anyway. Breakfast is chinese noodles and steam buns basically. And set up for Chinese tastes. So tea good, coffee awful. Internet at a 'business centre'. So basic three stars.
However the staff are fantastically helpful. Got my laundry done in record time when I needed to leave. Helped me get around town. Very kind.
Good hotel in decent area. Handy to walk into the town. Eating places nearby. Breakfast room very busy with large groups of people all arriving at once, but ok..staff a bit disorganised and not too friendly but that's China! Would recommend
We visited the lovely Yangshuo in April along with 14 other photographers on a 25 day tour of
China. During this time we used 11 different hotels and this one was the worst by far. On the credit side of the ledger, I have to note that the hotel was well placed within easy walking distance of "West Street" and the river, adjacent to a park and very near to the city markets. Also on the credit side is the fact that the rooms were equipped with all the amenities one needs......they were just very tired and dated.
Our allocated room was comfortable but the curtains were drawn - we opened them and found a wall a metre away! We closed them and got used to all the lights being on when ever we were in the room. Colleagues whose room was on the other side of the corridor report that they looked down onto the very grubby roof covering the central courtyard where breakfast was served. We were able to observe rooms at the front of the hotel. These looked over the park, were large and may have been recently refurbished.
Skip cereals at breakfast there was plenty of other things on offer.
We loved Yangshuo and recommend visitors go "Impressions of Liu Sanjie, a spectacular evening show on water. We also recommend visiting the Yulong River and taking a bamboo raft down stream. If you visit the market in the morning you are in for a surprise - check out the meat department.
