My wife made reservations about 12 hours before arriving at the hotel (3am). They were able to give us a room with a balcony and a queen-sized bed, which was nice because when we arrived, it looked like they had a full house (the dining area was jam packed). The dinner was pretty good. The western food they served wasn't...

While a stay on the river outside the town is preferable this is great if you prefer a town stay. The room was comfortable with a balcony overlooking the road and river/hills. The service was honest and very good (booked the show thru them); excellent English. Restaurant was excellent. Close to West street but quiet.

Lovely place,right on the Li river. They very kindly gave us the 4th, top, floor which we were a bit horrified with as there isn't a lift. When we got up there the room was great with a balcony and the best views. Room was delightful, clan and well laid out. Shower and toilet also excellent.

If the rooms were better, I would give this place a 4 or 5. Likes: Location! Very close to the night market in Yangshuo. The noise didn't bother me at all. The view of the river outside the hotel is gorgeous! Tours - Lucy was our tour guide during our biking tour! We went biking to the bamboo rafts and...

River view Inn is in a great position in the west st area. The rooms are a good size and generally clean . Make sure your room has a shower recess if that is what you are a custom to. The staff speak English which made life easy for us. The food was good and the breakfast was good

The room was so dirty we had to change hotels. There was Mold on walls and everywhere in the bathroom. The shower was so bad you did not want to use it. There was dirt all over the walls and it looked like it has not been cleaned at all. Do not look on top of the cupboard in the...

Our second stay at the River View Inn and it didn't disappoint. Very centrally located near West Street facing the Li River in a great location.cxx We took three rooms accommodating 6 of our family staying for three nights plus our dog. The rooms are comfortable and reasonably priced and for us much nicer than some of the larger hotels...

This is not a 5 star stay, it doesn't claim to be, but It is the perfect base to begin your walking, rafting or cycling adventure in the most amazing scenery. The hotel is run by friendly, helpful staff and is clean and quiet for the most part being away from the main part of town. This was our second...

This isn't the prettiest Hotel in the world but the location is great, the staff helpful and attentive and at such a low price it is excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it, but making sure that people weren't expecting 5 star. the river, as per the name, is just across the road and...

We got a spacious family room with a balcony overlooking the street facing the river bank. The room is functional and simple. As our room was located in the 2nd floor (the hotel has 2 floors), we had to carry our heavy weight suitcases up through the stairs as there is no elevators there. The hotel itself is located at...
