I am a solo traveler and recently stayed at the River View Inn, Yangshuo in May 2017. The location is great because it is close to West Street but far enough that the crazy night life won't effect your sleep. It was extremely affordable and centrally located which made it convenient traveling to and from the hotel. Most importantly I...

If you are going to Yangshuo and want to stay in town this is the place. We stayed here for 6 nights in April and have been really impressed with everything the hotel offers. The rooms are beautifully presented and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful even though we don't speak Chinese. Vivian and Kevin in the Office...

You will find many hotels on the booking sites. However, most are either on busy streets or 3 to 15km from the city center. We wanted to be close to town, but still enjoy a good night sleep. West Street region has many shops/restaurants/massage places, etc. It comes alive at night to the extend that you can't have a conversation...

We loved this place! Our TWIN room had quaint and charming touches and a balcony overlooking the river - idyllic! Meals are available on the pleasant outdoor terrace and menu is in English. It is a short walk to West St - a pedestrian street/night market. The location is perfect - riverside promenade with shady trees across the narrow road,...
