TravelPod Member ReviewsHongfu Hotel Yangshuo
Based around renovated Qing courtyard style hotel; beautiful mountain backdrop. Quiet & peaceful. Amenities good. Next door restaurant (Le Votre) also owned by them- excellent food at good prices. Very central and room had good facilities. No in-room internet but attractive lobby had guest computer.
