Date: 17th of Nov, 2017 - 8.8/10 on Booking.com
“The hotel was really nice and the staff were friendly. The hotel was off main drag in the countryside and the whole area was beautiful. They offered a shuttle (free, except at peak times) and it was just a short ride to the city. The breakfast options were good and the food was reasonably priced. Continue reading..
We loved that they had free bikes and ping pong. The rooms were really cool, cozy but not small.” View Less...

“Great for quiet peaceful atmosphere. Hotel offers shuttles to and from town throughout the day. Restaurant on-site is delicious and reasonably priced if you wish to stay on property. Continue reading..
Staff is wonderfully helpful and kind. Main staff members (reception, restaurant staff) seemed to speak English. They had a two room suite which was perfect for our family.” View Less...

“A short distance from Yangshuo centre. Super friendly and helpful staff. Pick up/drop off service was a big plus.”
Date: 15th of Sep, 2017 - Cozy hotel but do not believe the photos!!! - 2/5 on Tripadvisor
I just can't understand how this place received 4 and 5 dot-reviews. The people are nice and helpful, but the hotel is no-way what you expect from seeing the much too flattering pictures on the site. The pictures shown must be from when the hotel was built 15 or more years ago and the state it is in now, is definitely not like what is shown. Continue reading..
The bathroom condition is poor. We had a deposit safe in the room that didn't work cause it did not close. (Our friends in the room next to us had a safe that couldn't be opened!) We had to carry our heavy suitcases three stairs up and the offer of the girl at the desk to help was well-meant but useless. There was no wifi signal in our room so we had to go to the corridor or stairs to pick up some signal. Breakfast was good and the night porter is a nice and helpful guy, but for the rest our stay was much below expectation.
If you click on the site of the hotel, you are redirected to a much better hotel (Bamboo Leaves), that supposedly belongs to the same owners. View Less...
Date: 6th of Sep, 2017 - Absolutely fantastic - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. The apartment was unbelievable. I wanted to stay and will definitely go back. The breakfast was a perfect start to every day and set us up for our days sightseeing. Our trip to the rice terraces was organised through the hotel and was brilliant value for money with a lovely taxi driver to accompany us. Continue reading..
The area is absolutely beautiful, I didn't feel I had long enough there to experience all that I wanted to. I can't sing it's praises enough. I want to go back now!! View Less...
Date: 12th of Jun, 2017 - A little village getaway - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
This place is located walking distance from the pier of Yangshuo. The Li River view is very beautiful. This accommodation has been around for 6 to 7 years. With the constant humidity and rain, the building needs some maintenance. Shuttle service is available for usage. You are required to reserve it 30 minutes before to take the shuttle van to town west street. Continue reading..
It is very convenient to have the shuttle service as taxis could be costly.
We have a family room with balcony. A big king bed and adjourn bedroom with twin beds with 2 separate bathroom. It is spacious. There is toothbrushes, slippers, coffee tea offered complimentary for usage. Loved the big shower head. The complaint I have that the hotel leaves the window open to air and there are mosquitoes. The sewer pipe smells awful in the room. I had to get them to spray but it was useless. The water pipe on the sink is loose.
This is a family run business. The restaurant offers good food for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is complimentary. You can choose western and eastern style. Very delicious. Comes with juice and tea or coffee. View Less...
Date: 8th of Jun, 2017 - Quaint and friendly - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Yangshuo Village Retreat. The staff were truly amazing, kind and very efficient. Nothing was too much to ask for in our experience and we learnt so much from just chatting. The restaurant was affordable and varied so we were really happy to try a number of different dishes. Continue reading..
The rooms although old do have a quaint French decor and are large and comfy. One of the best experiences we had was our day with a local guide Lucy, riding through Yangshuo countryside and rafting on the quiet bamboo rafts on the Yulong river. Well worth the cost View Less...
Date: 30th of May, 2017 - OK, given the bargain price - 3/5 on Tripadvisor
If you're trying to save money, then for 1 or 2 nights this place is fine. It's hardly a 'retreat' given the construction going on in the mountain across the way. But at night, they are not working, so it is quiet, but there are other buildings nearby -- it's not alone anymore. The room was pretty good sized, but it was also dank and musty -- you could smell it in your clothes for several hours after leaving. Continue reading..
The furniture was very slap dab and looked like it had been rescued from 50 years in a storage unit. The locks were broken on the sliding door to the patio and the windows, but it seemed safe as it was on the second floor. The lock to the main door of the room was fine. There was an in-room safe that actually worked despite the fact that the keypad was hanging by its wires. But the important stuff was all pretty good: shower was very nice, so was the toilet and the sink in the room was new and very nice. The bed was also nice. The air conditioner looked like hell but worked very well. Also, the restaurant was pretty good and the people working here were very friendly. Note that it is out of town, so it's not for you if you wanted to be near shopping and other excitement. They do have a shuttle to take you into town and pick you up, but I didn't use it while I was there so have nothing to report. View Less...
