We stayed 4 days over summer and we can't speak highly enough of the hotel's ambiance, views and service levels.
As others have noted, but really hard to appreciate unless you see it, is that the hotel is beautifully constructed and decorated. There's a very harmonious blending of stone, woods and living things right through the property.
Service was very good from the team , and they managed our crazy late arrival with a smile and a welcome beer. Alf is a great host, with tons of useful information on what to see and do in the area.
It is located a bit out of town - a very good thing - and quite walkable or rideable using rented bikes.
BTW , its a bargain as well- it was very reasonable for a hotel of this quality, we thought.
If you to Yangshuo you must give this hotel a try.More
