This hotel was GREAT! Great location, personal and great service, and a perfect place to relax and enjoy the fantastic scenery! I really recommend this hotel if you are going to Yangshuo, I would much rather stay here than in the city itself, this will make you enjoy the nature in a completely different way than if you are only...

We stayed in YMR for 5 nights in July and enjoyed our stay here very much. This place is located on the banks of the Yulong River. We had a big family room on the second floor that comes with a balcony with gorgeous view of the Yulong River and the karst mountains. A room on the second floor is...

Stayed in a family suite with 2 friends and it was a lovely experience. Don't expect down comforters and sparkling bathroom tiles, but the place is well kept and the surrounding landscape scenery looks like it came out of a postcard. The staff all speak English and were extremely accommodating with all our little requests and queries. They arranged everything...

Superb riverside location, coupled with efficient, English-speaking, always helpful staff will make this small hotel your favorite of your visit to China. Whether drawing you a map for your bike excursion, arranging a private river raft trip, or whisking your dishes away after dinner by the river, this is an extremely well-run hotel, staffed entirely by an exceptional group of...

The Yangshuo Mountain Retreat (YMR) shows that you don't need to be 5 star hotel to earn a 5.0 rating! After arriving on Guilin airport, we were picked up by our ride that we reserved through the hotel. Yangshuo is about an hour from Guilin and we found the 300 RMB that we had to pay for our ride was...

the staff was always kind and helpful, and they organize a lot of excursions in all the most amazing places around Yangshuo. The garden is amazing and you can eat at the really good restaurant of the hotel outside with the great view of the Yulong river and the carsic mountains. The room was wonderful and confortable. Great place!

In July 2011 my family of four spent about five days at the Mountain Retreat and it was the highlight of our three-week trip to China. The setting is really stunning -- we looked out our balcony each morning and had beautiful river and karst mountain views. Stunning -- like a picture postcard. We were also very impressed with the...

I am writing this late - but still needed to write about our super stay here. It was in December 2010 and after a wonderful 4hour river cruise we arrived to the melee of Yangshuo wondering what we were going to find - but we needn't have worried. This is an oasis in a maelstrom - the setting, the upkeep...

After living and traveling in China for the last 8 months we understand the challenges that hospitality business owners have to deal with...especially those that are trying to offer an authentic experience with western amenities at a good price (not to mention green practices!). We just stayed here for 4 nights and it was an absolute delight! Everything that others...

While the location is out of the main city, the gorgeous view and serene atmosphere more than makes up for the 30 yuan taxi ride into town. The rooms are great, and the staff is exceptionally helpful. They can help plan any activity for you to do on your own or with a guide. The restaurant is also very good,...
