My 12 year old son and I stayed here for 4 nights last July, and it was delightful. We stayed in two rooms both of which were on the second floor and had outdoor terraces. They both clean and tastefully decorated, although the first room had a leak in the bathroom. The second was amazing... right above the lobby with...

No matter where you travel in China, it can often be extremely hard to find peace and quite. Yangshuo is known as being one of the less polluted, more cultural and provincial towns in China, but increasing tourism is quickly changing things. Yangshuo Mountain Retreat is excellently located and it allows you to be close enough to the necessary sites,...

We were a 2-family group, (4 adults, 2 children aged 6 & 8) spending 5 days at this lovely riverside hotel. We were met with warm smiles and sunny greetings from all the staff and throughout our stay they couldn't have done more to help us at every turn. Little Fish and Angel are the stars of the show -...

It was my second visit to Yangshuo Mountain Retreat hotel. This time I was accompanied by 2 friends, so we stayed in a 3 bed room. Once more the experience was overwhelming. The location of the hotel on the Yulong river with the Karst hills all around. We went out cycling and took the bamboo boat back. The hotel provides...

Mountain Retreat. The location, overlooking pleasant gardens, leading to the river, with montains at the back is idyllic. The reception was quick and efficient and the glass of real orange juice and biscuits to welcome us was a pleasant surprise. That’s the end of the praise I am afraid, from there it’s down hill. We were promised a room with...

UndertheMoon, Partner at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, responded to this review

We're pleased that you chose to celebrate your anniversary with us, but there are some serious misstatements in your review that we should address here. Most importantly, the Mountain Retreat is a Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise since 2000, and is not registered in the name of any local staff. Your assertion that we somehow get a tax break because we...

The staff, service,facilities, food, room and location are all excellent. The room is particularly comfortable and cosy. It is such a beautiful place to relax just sitting at the room balcony or at the many sitting areas at the lawn just to absorb in the tranquility and the beautiful scenery of the Yulong River. We rented their bicycles and the...

The staff were helpful and friendly, the location is fabulous and our room with a veranda was comfortable and relaxing. If you want to stay somewhere with character rather than in a chain-style hotel or a downbeat hostel, this is the perfect oasis.

My husband and I stayed at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat in April 2012 for 3 nights. I don't see how it could have been a better experience and it was one of my favorite parts of our trip to China. Location: It is about a 1 hour 15 minute cab ride from the Guilin airport. The hotel arranged for cabs...

We really enjoyed the amazing view outside the room. The restaurant is also highly recommended. The hotel is just a bit far from the town center. However, that's why you can find peace of mind.
