Golden Week during October holidays in China congests all major streets anywhere worth visiting, including Yangshuo. This means all ground transportation and hotel rates are at least doubled. YVR is nicely located away from all the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk to West St in twenty minutes. The converted balcony into bathroom is acceptable, although a bit...

If you are planning a visit to Yangshuo then I would highly recommend that you stay here. Good location, very helpful owners, Gerd and Jenny,excellent staff Flower and Michalle and a very nice restaurant. Classic rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable with some having great Karst Mountain views.

There are plenty of lodging options in Yangshuo these days and we've stayed at several of them. In the future, we'll only stay at Yangshuo Village Retreat. The reason isn't the actual facility, although considering it's located in somewhat rural QuangXi it is quite good. The real reason is because the staff at this property is so incredibly helpful and...

It was unbelievable we stayed in the hotel for 48 hours without venturing more than 100m outside its compound. This place is not within YangShuo town - it is in a village, north of town. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite. It has a nice balcony facing the mountain. It has enough privacy and a huge jacuzzi tub. Shower has...

I couldn't have had a better setting for my wife and I during our week long stay in Yangshou town. The staff were always willing to help out with any quandaries. The kitchen churns out excellent food, both western, European and Chinese. It is super clean and the rooms are secure which slated a lot of the anxiety I had...

I arrived at the Yangshuo Village Retreat after a long taxi ride. It appeared that my Chinese friend had made an error in writing down the address for me! A patient taxi driver hauled me around for a while before we found the spot which is actually only a nice walk from the center of Yangshuo. While at the Retreat,...

No kidding, the Penthouse is the way to go while staying at the retreat. Oh and make arrangements before arrival, the retreat will get you from the pier and drive you there. There was no desire to leave the Retreat for meals, other couples staying here like us, are repeat dining patrons. So, the fifth floor penthouse is majestic. The...

Peacefull setting in a village and yet within easy reach of the very beautiful (but touristy) Yuangshuo center. Nicest hotel manager/owner we met in China; from Ghent, Belgium, which also explains the welcome presence of Belgian quality beers :) ! He also saved part of our trip (further south) by generously helping us out with getting hands on the necessary...

We, 5 friends from Belgium, stayed there for a few days and had a wonderful time! The boss was a nice guy from Gent, Belgium and welcomed us when we arrived there. The hotel is located in the village next to the yangshuo town. It's ideal if you don't want to be surrounded by the thousands of tourists day and...
