Stayed two nights. Simple hotel at foot of Dazhai with comfortable bed and great shower . Lovely view from our room. Could benefit from a little refurbishment ( cracked window pane and update shower cubicle) but overall we had a lovely peaceful stay here . Great breakfast with omelette, pork , homemade bread and fruit ( watermelon and passion fruit which were in season when we were there). The owner Sandy was delightful.

The rooms are a bit worn around the edges, especially for the price, but overall, we were comfortable, and it was a great jumping off point for hiking the terraces. Sandy arranged a very comfortable minivan to pick us up from our hotel in Yangshuo and to take us back to Guilin. We didn't do major hiking, so there may be better spots for more extensive trekking in the terraces. But for our one night's stay (which was plenty for us), a lovely morning hike to a spectacular view, some leisurely wandering around the small village, and some great traditional food from a nearby restaurant (sorry, we didn't get the name - phenomenal bamboo chicken!!), the Wisdom Inn served us well. Also please note that the photos got categorized as 'view from room' - not quite - rather, they are from our hike, which had a starting point very close to the hotel.

I can't say enough good about Sandy and the Wisdom Inn - our two nights there were the highlight of our entire China trip. Everything was easy from the very first email to Sandy who was so responsive and organized our transport to and from Guilin. The Inn was clean and welcoming and the Dazhai village is charming with great walks. A must stay place.

It's hard to divorce the hotel from the entirety of Dazhai (one of the most magical and awesome locations I've ever visited), but I will try to review only the Wisdom Inn. Sandy the proprietor has excellent English and is very easy to get in touch with via email. She helpfully arranged a driver for us from Guilin -- a terrifying journey not for the faint of heart. We received breakfast, but contrary to some reviews here there was no dinner offered, instead Sandy recommended a place across the street. Sandy and her husband were sitting in the lobby or on the front porch all the time so they were always available to talk. Western toilets a very welcome amenity. No air conditioning, spotty wifi, hard beds. Easy location with no hiking necessary.

I booked a Queen room (1 queen bed & requested for 1 extra bed) for 3 person via email. Paid RMB 550 nett/ night. This is a beautiful wooden/ bamboo house where the owner lives. Sandy is an English speaking lady who rents out some of the floors for guest to stay. Sandy was so helpful in providing all necessary information prior to my visit to Guilin. She was prompt in replying all my enquiries via email. She was kind enough to upgrade my room to Family Room (consist of 1 queen bed & 1 single bed) as we were the only guest for that night. She also accommodated my request for a lower floor for the convenience of my mom who can’t be climbing up the stairs. Room and bed was clean and comfy and some basic facilities (i.e. kettle, mug, dressing table) were provided. No wardrobe. However, kettle was rusty and I wasn’t pleased to use it even after washing it several times. Bathroom was clean with western toilet, but could have been better. For village area, this is good enough. Wisdom Inn is located in Dazhai Village, 8-10 mins walk from the cable car ticket counter. Guest need not to hike to reach Wisdom Inn. In fact, our driver managed to drive us directly to Wisdom Inn as no other car was coming in the opposite direction. A few restaurants serving local dishes could also be found nearby. Just that I find that RMB 550 nett/ night is a little pricey for a village area, expensive than my stay in a 5 star hotel (Lijang Waterfall Hotel, Guilin for RMB 416 nett/ night). But I still chose Wisdom Inn due to the location which doesn’t involve much hike for my mom. And also, due to availability of western toilet and for the convenience of English speaking. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here. Refreshing and breezy air, the wooden house, mountain view made my day so calm and relaxed.

Dazhai village is accessible only on foot. It is a lovely traditional Chinese minority village in the heart of the Longji Rice Terraces. The Wisdom Inn is run by Sandy, a delightful lady, who speaks excellent English and is extremely friendly and very helpful. She gave us lots of good suggestions and looked after us very well. If we ever go back to Dazhai village ( it is a great spot), we would choose this Inn again.

We had arranged our 1 night stay with the lovely owner, Sandy - whom has great English skills & from Shanghai, originally (I believe). She was easy to work with, even though our plans had to change several times. Transport was all taken care of by her & we had no issues (after walking quickly past the line of touts yelling at you to hire them, to find our young, but careful driver), so no need to pay the driver (research tipping practices in China, if you haven't already). The Guilin airport was interesting, quite empty & a slight Cold-War feel to it (this was our 1st day in Mainland China, so the "deposit your newspapers & radios" statement before getting off the plane came as a slight surprise. The drive was long, through rice fields, then through a beautiful river gorge until you reach the small village in which this clean, basic guest house exists. Tip* - you should have Dramamine/Bonine in your travel meds bag for this ride if you're sensitive to motion sickness at all. You will likely be greeted by a bunch of older women of the Hakka Tribe (known for their awesomely long hair kept hidden in a bun), who want to pack you luggage up the hill for you (these ladies are strong & capable, but you can't help but to feel bad if you were to have them haul your heavy bags up the mountain). Fortunately, this Inn is one of the closest ones to the end of the road, so you simply have to walk ~ 100' or so. A win, as you'll be dragging any rolling luggage across the cobblestone. The Wisdom Inn had several (~4-6 or so) clean, basic rooms upstairs, although electricity was limited at times. Tip* - tall people, watch your head going up/down the stairs (this place was not built for tall folks). The water was hot, linens/blankets were clean & warm. The area is subject to very high humidity, especially in summer months, so be prepared to feel moist & cool at night. Things quieted down nicely in the evening. Sleep was good. This proved to be an excellent home base while in Longji, and I would definitely stay again. You should, however, look around the village for much cheaper meals. I think we found some breakfast noodles/porridge (quite good, actually) about 2-3 doors up for ~ $2USD. Excellent experience, wish we had more than 1 night there to allow exploration of the nearby villages. Sandy will give you the rundown on how to maximize your time to hike to the best viewpoints (we found it challenging to try to get to all 3 major viewpoints in time to catch our 16:00, pre-arranged taxi (also setup by Sandy).

The first thing I liked about the Wisdom Inn, was that Sandy, the owner, was always prompt and polite to answer my many emails and questions leading up to the trip. Once I was in China I was always able to easily get in touch with her by email, when I was on wireless, or with my China Mobile phone (which cost 180 RMB for the basic one - I highly recommend having one, or the Chinese SIM card - it really comes in handy when you are in a situation where everyone is talking Chinese and you need to know what they are saying - you can call your hotel, and they can usually straighten it out). We needed a driver to get us to the village where she and the Wisdom inn was, and she arranged a really nice driver with a very reasonable cost. The Wisdom Inn is right at the entrance of the village. (The road ends at the village, you can't drive in the village - in fact there is not a road in the village.) Sandy was there to greet us when we arrived and carried some of our luggage to the Inn which was about 100 feet or so from the entrance. She was welcoming, inviting us to have tea at her "tea table". We stayed two days with her, and never had to worry about meals. She fixed us tasty meals for a reasonable price, using fresh local food whenever she could. She is an educated Chinese lady originally from Shanghai and nice to talk to - she was responsive to my wife's many questions, some personal. She had her Inn built in the last few years, but it was built in the same way as the other buildings and houses of the village, using the same local materials, so it is made of and has a lot of local wood in it and is basic but nice and comfortable for what it is - a house in a Chinese village. We had a nice room in the front on the third floor that looked out over the village and rice paddies. It was scenic and really very cool. I don't think you could beat the location. Our stay was very peaceful and quiet, as we were the only guests, and had Sandy's focused attention all to ourselves :-) (Sandy said she liked to keep her guest list small, so she could give guests individual attention.) Additionally Sandy told us we could drink the tap water without fear - and she was right, though it took a little bit to trust her on that after traveling through China and having to use bottled water everywhere! Of course Sandy knew the area, so she could direct where to hike through the rice paddies, and the other nearby villages. I don't think you could duplicate the experience of staying at the Wisdom Inn right in Dazhai with Sandy. I was very happy to stay there and have that experience, and would stay there again, if I ever came back, as well as recommend it to others. This gave us the opportunity to see life in the village with the local ethnic people, as well as be right in the rice paddies. The caveat is that this is a simple basic village, so something like a luxury hotel is not an option in this village. We stayed on the third floor, there are no elevators, but Sandy helped us with getting the luggage to and from our room.

We read about this inn and booked it months before we arrived, and were in contact with Sandy, sending her emails (asking all kinds of questions) which she answered promptly. There was a land slide close by blocking the road there, which made the drive for us in two parts, one from the airport to the location of the slide, then another driver picked us up and drove us to the start of this small village. (This last part was after the locals carried our luggage in their baskets, that were strapped on their backs, down the hill and over a wooden bridge to the last driver. They were happy to get the business as I'm sure their income is minimal). Sandy met us and helped us to her hotel. We ventured out a bit and came back to a nicely cooked meal, (this was the first of the two nights we were staying here.) It was like stepping into a national geographic page. I was so excited, every bubbling brook, every baby duck, any locals, and all children and then the rice fields, with the wooden homes with the close lines filled with colored clothes hanging on them, was for me the once in my life time adventure. As we got settled into our room, there was a door and windows that opened up to the balcony. It was right there this amazing slice of the world seen by only a few. Yes, the bed was hard and yes, this was basic, yes I got cold, but all I had to do was ask for an additional blanket, (and I like luxury like anyone, but that is not what I was coming this far to experience, so I find it hard to read some of the negative reviews. Come on. It is what it is - beautiful, remote, and as far as I'm concerned accommodating). The air was fresh, no smog, and clean water, (you can drink it right from the tap -in other cities, we had to buy bottled water daily) And all the food was fresh - the vegetables and local eggs as well as local poultry. I completely enjoyed the food and the conversations with Sandy, and all the arrangements she made for us.

Stayed at Wisdom Inn in April 2014 for 2 nights. It was long enough. I must say that we were all disappointed after reading the rave reviews from other visitors. First of all i must point out that if you get Sandy to arrange a taxi transfer for you, do not pay the taxi driver. We were not told this and paid the driver who later tried to say we hadn't paid him and then said we had paid him 200 less than we had. Sandy puts this service on your bill at the end of the stay. Fortunately it was sorted eventually after much upset. The room my husband and i stayed in was at the rear of the property with no view at all. The room was damp and also the bedding. For the whole of our visit the bathroom floor never dried out. There was a power outage during most of our visit which meant there was no heating to dry out the room and no hot water for a shower. We did get some power around 8pm each evening. This also seemed to cause a problem regarding eating, as Sandy then did not want to serve any meals and told us to try somewhere else. Fortunately the few places available to eat did manage to cook for us without a problem. Sandy seemed obsessed with cleaning the floor of the entrance way but never touched our rooms at all. The bathroom bin wasn't even emptied. We did complain about all these things but Sandy said she could not give us a reduction in price even though we had paid for services not supplied. I know the power outage was not Sandys fault as she stated but we were paying for these services. All in all we found it very expensive for what we got. It cost us more to stay here than it did to stay in a beautiful penthouse suite in Yangshou. We would like to point out that the village, surrounding rice fields and walks are amazing. Lovely to see but would have been better to just stay one night. Please note that we do understand that this is in a remote area and did not expect too much of the accomodation, but saying that the pricing should reflect the quality and services.
