Only 4 km outside Yangshuo, the Outside Inn is a very friendly small guesthouse with a unique character, located in a set of traditional farmhouses, renovated into rooms with western standards.

The houses are built with 'Adobe' mud bricks, which give them their typical yellow color. The walls are about 40 cm thick maintaining the interior relatively cool in summer and warm in winter.

The unique character of the Outside Inn is reflected in our rooms. We are embedded in the famous Karst mountains and surrounded by old worldly China that has inspired people for centuries.

Yangshuo's famous outdoor activities start right at our front door. You are welcome to stay with us and enjoy this wonderful surroundings or relax in our gardens and enjoy a home cooked Chinese or western meal in our restaurant.

The Outside Inn is located near the Yulong River which makes it ideal for bamboo raft trips and relaxing swims

“The location was outstanding - staying in a quiet and peaceful location in rural China, in an old farmhouse...unbeatable! The rooms are spacious and clean - they give a feel of rural China, but also provide a clean bed, well plumbed toilets, and good showers. The staff are also very helpful and friendly, arranging free bikes or petrol scooters (for a small fee). Continue reading..

“We really enjoyed our staying in this hotel! It's a bit out of the city which we didn't regret at all!! Yangshuo itself was too crowded, so this location was perfect ! The surrounding of the location is unique and beautiful. The staff was really helpful and their English is perfect. Also they have a nice overview with all the activities you can do and you can easily book them at the hotel. Continue reading..

Date: 8th of Oct, 2017 - Favorite place in China - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

We arrived here after visiting a few other places in China, and it was very relaxing. The staff are so nice and accommodating, the food is good, and the atmosphere is peaceful. Ronald the owner is actively involved and helpful. Michelle and Sycamore are kind and pleasant!

Date: 8th of Oct, 2017 - Relaxed, welcoming hotel in gorgeous countryside setting - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

This was my second trip to Yangshuo, and we decided to give Outside Inn a go - having eaten here on the previous trip. Chaolong is about 2-3 miles outside Yangshuo, but easily accessible via the (free) bicycles along a lovely canal path ride (15-20 minutes, and good exercise!).

It's in a gorgeous rural setting - the hotel buildings are converted farmhouses, and as such every room is slightly different. Continue reading..

Date: 1st of Oct, 2017 - Comfty option for the adventurous - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

This hotel is far from downtown Yangshuo but that is part of the beauty of it. Nearby you can ride along the river, swim in it, take a cooking class in one of the neighbor houses, and many other activities. The restaurant is inexpensive and the food is great. Also a great place to get the laundry done after touring China. Continue reading..

Great place to stay out of the busy center, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. Easy access to hiking and biking trails. A lovely place to relax with friendly and helpful staff.

Date: 30th of Jul, 2017 - So Relexing - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

We spent a wonderful stay with our 1 year old daughter at the Outside Inn. It was so utterly relaxing we didn't want to leave.
It's within easy reach of Yangshuo town but surrounded by mountains and the Yulong river, where we walked and swam every day.
Ronald and Wendy are fantastic hosts happy to chat and share info about the local attractions. Continue reading..

Date: 23rd of Jul, 2017 - One of the Most Interesting "Hotels" Ever - 5/5 on Tripadvisor

This is a 6 star spot. No, it's not the Hilton; it has no concierge, no elevator, and no room service. It DOES have a friendly, interesting, and helpful staff in a spectacular location and there are surprisingly delightful amenities. It's tucked away in Yangshuo-close to the rivers, the farmland and the famous limestone peaks of Guilin. Continue reading..
