We enjoyed several meals during our four night stay at this hotel. The setting is wonderful - an inviting terrace across the narrow road from the riverside promenade overhung with trees. - a place where you can relax with a beer or something eat. Caters for foreigners so the English menu serves recognizable food - not the cheapest, but not... More

As you can imagine the view over the river Li is just Incredible. .... The rooms are big enough, clear and clean. The staff is really nice and helpful. The restaurant is good with a large variety if chinese and western dishes. Ideal for families with kids. The atmodphere is great, you will enjoy your time there !

4 years since our last visit and what a let down. Firstly, the location has changed to smaller, older premises where we used to eat. This part of the hotel is a real mismatch. First room was small and rear view, changed to another room 4th floor, NO LIFT, up in the rafters literally and kept hitting our heads on... More

Spent 3 days at the hotel had a room with a river view on the forth floor, not worth booking a room on 1st or 2nd floor as the view will be obstructed by the trees. 2 streets away from West St. Most of the receptionist staff spoke good English. There is a communal computer for guests to use but... More

Probably one of the best dinners we had on a two-week trip around China. Relaxed and friendly, close to the river in a peaceful corner of town - ideal for a break from the bright lights of West Street. I'm sure this is what Yangshou was like before it was "discovered" by tourists! Great choice of home cooked Chinese dishes,... More

Located at the end of the West Street, it is a quite place for retreat. The hotel is beside the river where you will hear the rushing flow of the waters. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy, balconies are cozy that you'd want to stay a night more. The staff speaks English and they will attend to your every need.... More

I had communicated with Riverview by email before my trip and found out that they not only provide lodging but have a restaurant with a wide menu (Chinese and Western), rent scooters, and sell tickets for tours including Night Time Cormorant Fishing. We had a nice meal and stayed for the Cormorant Fishing boat trip which left the hotel around... More

This hotel is right next to the river. It's a short (3 min) walk to west street meaning close enough to enjoy but far away enough for a quiet night's sleep. The staff were super helpful, helping us with a taxi to the airport and a raft excursion to Xingping. We were in room 405 which was on the top... More

This hotel is in a good location in the town, it is far enough away from the hustle and noise but an easy walk to all the amenities. This hotel is opposite to the river and is a really nice walk and the end of a busy day. The hotel is clean but in need of a little freshen up,... More

First the location : 2 mins walk from the few market streets, so you can get animation in the evening and plenty of places to eat (touristic restaurants...), but the hotel remains peaceful Rooms are nice, quite simple, and quite different from each other...
