We stayed here for five days so we could look around Yangshuo and its surrounding countryside. What a lovely find! The staff could not do more to help you and Lilly and Nikki were on hand to give advice for the surrounding activities. We had a room on the second floor with great views of the mountains, very clean, had...

Choose Phoenix Pagoda if.. A) you want to be away from tourists, but close enough to make a leisurely 30 min. bike ride into town B) you'd like to stay in a comfortable and romantic country setting, surrounded by the sublime, surreal mountains of Yangshuo C) you appreciate local. Lily grew up down the road and she can point you...

A charming and relaxing unique place, with friendly and helpful staff. The owner has converted a large Chinese country house to a uniquely organic, laid-back guest villa. This quaint retreat is quiet, rustic and intimate. Enjoy taking local walks and bicycle rides along quiet mountain roads and small villages or head into Yangshou to experience the famous Water Show, set...

We stayed 3 nights to explore the area. Very friendly, and helpful staff. English speaking staff made booking and stay easy. Clean comfortable rooms with views of Karsts. Bikes available and close to bike paths and hiking. Slightly out of busy Langshuo, but close to major attractions. Small quiet hotel. Restaurant on premise, very good variety on menu and food....

Es war sehr gut. Das freundliche Personal, das saubere Zimmer. Das Essen hat zimelich lecker geschmeckt. Obwohl die Zentrum nicht in der Nähr war, war der Preis billig ! und die Landschaft war einfach wunderbar ! There are lots of hotels in Yangshuo with incredible view, including this one. But the reason why it impressed me a lot was not...

On my fifth visit to the Yangshuo I was lucky enough to book here. I've stayed in some great places but the hospitality from Nikki and her team was second to none. Location is decent if you want to hire bikes, it's next to Moon Hill and close to the Banyan Tree. Looked forward to the tuk tuk back from...

Ideally placed to take in all the local tourist interests without the fuss and noise of a traditional tourist hotel. The staff are friendly, efficient and very welcoming. Food selection is adequate . All freshly cooked to order and served in pleasant surroundings. We would recommend the use of insect repellent and take plenty of anti histamines just in case....

Nice small hotel away from the crowds. Beatuful surroundings and bicycles available to go around the river. Some team member speaks english. Relaxing ! Rooms are clean and all necessary is available... Small restaurants aling the rivers are great with fresh and delicious local specials.

This hotel is located near the hills 20 minutes from the city. Quiet, peaceful and scenic. No tv and no phones. The staff at the hotel is what makes this place outstanding. Lily, Nikki and the others are terrific. For meals you can eat in the courtyard, upstairs in the dining room or on the roof for the best views....
