Very friendly staff. Angel and her colleagues were extremely helpful. The food was excellent. The walk by the river to town and back was very nice. Room has a great view.
Date: 12th of Jan, 2018 - OMG. The best. Incredible room. - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
Getting here was a bit of an adventure. I’d printed out my reservation confirmation which had directions, but it was all in English and our cab driver did not speak English. Also, my phone battery had died so I couldn’t look anything up or call. (If I had called , they would have sent a car to pick us up. Continue reading..
) I assumed the taxi driver would know the hotel but he didn’t. My daughter used her college level mandarin to translate the directions we were given, and we pointed to what we thought was the hotel on a map on his phone. He said he could get us close, but after that we’d have to walk. He dropped us off by a covered pedestrian market. Apparently we pointed to the wrong hotel. But my daughter went in to ask about LiRiver and they told us the way. We walked the length of the pedestrian market, mostly closed at the time but with a great view of the river, a worn limestone floor, and a beautifully carved old stone guardrail. A shopkeeper offered to drive us but we decided to keep walking, it was so picturesque. Eventually we got to a sign pointing to a number of resorts including Li River, 400 meters on. The resort is on the river road but elevated up a long flight of stairs. So we were a bit frazzled by the time we arrived. The welcome we received couldn’t have been more warm. We were greeted with glasses of warm water (this is winter, in the off season), our luggage carried up from the road where we’d left it, and shown to our room, which was one of their river view family rooms. What we saw upon entering made it all worth it. The room was easlity triple the size of a standard room with a vaulted ceiling enhancing the sense of spaciousness. The end of the room projects out with nearly floor to ceiling windows on three sides overlooking a classic Karst landscape with the river below. The king bed was placed here, so you have incredible views even when you’re lying down. It felt like sleeping in a luxurious treehouse. Behind this alcove for the “master bed” was an attractive living room suite, twin beds, an armoire for clothing and a bakers rack with tea and coffee makings. A full set of adorable slippers for the entire family sat underneath - furry for winter, rubber for summer and bath, one foot cat face and the other dog.
One third of the room was taken up by a bathroom featuring separate glassed in cubicles for toilet and shower, a large marble vanity with waterfall-style faucet, and, and, and.... a large circular bathtub in the center. Curtains surround the tub so you can close them for privacy when others are around, or keep them open and bathe with the view. While we were settling in, someone arrived with a beautiful fruit platter to compensate for the inconvenience we had in getting there. The fruit was high quality, which is not often the case in hotels. The only drawback to the hotel is you regret leaving to go sightseeing! View Less...
Date: 9th of Jan, 2018 - A Very Charming Hotel - 5/5 on Tripadvisor
Stayed 3 nights here in July when we visited South China.
This is a beautiful quaint small hotel nested in Yangshuo river/mountains. We loved it.
The hotel was peaceful, quiet and stylish. It’s not in town, but I would not like it if it was, because west street was very very noisy and becoming tacky in my opinions. Continue reading..
It’s walking distance to west street and along the river, it was pretty.
The host and owner Alf was charming and helpful. He is native Australian, so he speaks both English and Chinese. We exchanged a few emails before our arrivals. He was always prompt responding my emails.
The hotel has a nice pool, which was blissful for the hot summer.
The restaurant was adequate, we ate there for breakfasts and dinners. Our experience for food sampling at Yangshuo was not over the moon, same here at the hotel.
The room was beautifully decorated. Sitting on the balcony looking at the mountain mist in the morning was one of my best moments in Yangshuo.
The staff here trying their best to help for any requests you may have.
We enjoyed our stay. I was disappointed at Yangshuo, it became so consumerized, but Li River resort made up for it.
The hotel was new and it had room to improve, and I am sure it will. For example there was no safe in the room; there is no bath robes in the room.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Yangshuo. View Less...

Шикарный вид на горы и реку, рассвет просто изумителен. В номере комфортно, на первом этаже неплохой ресторанчик (правда время от времени готовят долго). Владелец не китаец, возможно поэтому платили за проживание мы после выселения и без залога за номера (как принято в Китае). Continue reading..
Расположение сначала кажется неудачным, но после понимаешь что до главной улицы с ресторанчиками рукой подать, минут 15 на машине. View Less...
