Decent place to stay for foreigners, excellent food.”
There are swankier places to stay in Yangshuo for less money, but you'd need to speak Chinese to book them. This was a good option for those who speak no Chinese as the staff spoke English and were helpful. The place is getting a bit tired and could do with some renovation. I also found it odd that there were two unfinished buildings either side of the main hotel, which didn't seem like they were under construction. But the location was very peaceful and the food was excellent (honestly, really good - even my Chinese husband loved it).

Solidly Overrated”
I don’t know who writes these glowing reviews, but they clearly are hyping what might be a rather ordinary accommodation. The Retreat is in the middle of nowhere in what purports to be some sort of ecotourism area. The place is gated between 7 AM and 7 PM, so it will cost you $8 to $10 for an authorized ride anytime you want to go to or from the outside world. Everything at the hotel is pricy. We paid $30 for a cheap bottle of wine and arranged our own raft trip saving substantially with respect to the hotel’s prices. Yangshou is a bit grotty and depressing; better to stay in Guilin, which at least has some charm and interest.

Perfect”
Perfect place to stay when looking to escape the city! We wanted to travel to Guilin to escape the city so very happy qwe cdecided to stay a little bit out of town than in Yangshuo town. We were among the mountains and nature. The location and hotel were perfect made even better by the staff and management of Phoenix Pagoda! Thank you Jerry, Lily and linlin.

Great stay!”
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They went the extra mile to help us plan and understand the area. The hotel is located outside of town which is quieter and is centrally located to a lot of the outdoor opportunities. A great place!

Fantastic venue and superior hosts”
A group of 6 women from Australia we stayed for 3 nights in 2 family suites. The rooms and facilities were spacious and very clean, the location and views outstanding. Lilly (excellent spoken English) and the rest of the staff were so accommodating and friendly. We were all impressed with our stay, they even cooked us a dinner (good wholesome food) on our late arrival and nothing was any trouble to them. Use the bikes, go bamboo rafting, walk, see the light show, rice terraces - lots to do and Lilly can arrange it for you, including any transportation. Would highly recommend The Phoenix Pagoda Fonglou Retreat and the location is fabulous.

Peace, quiet and hospitality in picturesque Yangshuo”
Phoenix Pagoda Fonglou was an oasis of peace and calm for us. We wanted to see more of the stunning beauty of Yangshuo, but the hospitality and helpfulness of Lily, Nicky and Jerry made it very easy for us to decide to explore locally, sleep in and enjoy the great tasting food prepared in the hotel restaurant. We hired bikes from the hotel and rode along the river bank paths nearby, and we had a very relaxing 3 days staying at Fonglou. If you want a relaxed place to stay amid the stunning natural beauty of Yangshuo County and its karst mountain scenery< Phoenix Pagoda

Remote but convenient location, helpful and friendly staff, amazing homecooked food!
Tucked away in the mountains of Yangshuo, this hidden gem is a perfect spot for a getaway. Incredible value for money, great staff who can arrange all activities...and the food is delish! TRY THE PUMPKIN! Just saying. Will be back next time!

Amazing view- helpful smiling staff, speaking English- beautiful room
We stayed 2 nights, June 2015, rain so no river activities. However, we could do a lot of activities: biking in the middle of an amazing landscape, taichi school one hour away by bike, golden cave with fun in the mud and kissing fish, only 10 mn waking.We had a balcony with an awesome view. The room was clean, beautiful, decorated with excellent taste, perfect in all details including fragrant bath gel and shampoo . The staff was kind, helpful, smiling, speaking English. Because it was not high season, we were allowed to stay for free an extra afternoon. The staff organized a taxi to go back to Yangshuo (20 rmb). Before we arrived, we were a bit anxious to be too remote and depend only on the hotel amenities but there were restaurants around. We had a nice tasty lunch at the hotel, reasonable price, including local beer. Drinkable water, free and unlimited quantity. Everything was perfect and we thank the staff for this unforgettable moment.

very good choice for a retreat”
Room view; room decor; hospitable staff
It was very pleasant experience living in Phoenix Pagoda. The location is ideal for me, travelling with elderly parents. The village is transquil and the view surrounding the hotel is unparallel. However for those who love entertainment and night life it does not make a good choice since it is $7 taxi ride away from Yangshuo town. The senic corridor runs right next the village within bike-riding distance, transport to town and other places of interest is also quite convenient. One shortcoming is the food they serve, which is quite westernized and the Chinese food I tried there is no much better than average. There is no TV in the room, which I appreciate since the inner peace we gain from the stunning landscape wouldn't be disturbed by modern noises. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The bamboo raft they recommend is really worth it and more importantly it is hassale-free.

Outside the city”
Quiet
Loved that it was quiet because the location was pretty far from the city. But we had a hard time getting a ride back and it's pretty dark and scary at night. Also scared by 2 huge jumping spiders as soon as we checked in. Staff is super helpful and food was pretty good.

Reviews about YPP hospitality are 100% accurate!”
The staff at YPP are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. They are very knowledgable about where to go and what to do in Yangshou. We were made to feel like part of a family during our stay.
Nothing seemed too much trouble for the staff while we stayed at Yangshou Phoenix Pagoda. and the kitchen staff treated us more like family than guests. The room was comfortable with excellent amenities and bathroom facilities. Despite October break being a busy time, the staff always responded quickly and cheerfully to any requests we made. Guests were treated to informative and free tours of the local area by the owner. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and any requests were organised quickly and efficiently. Both my wife and I had a wonderful time exploring Yangshou on foot and by bike, thanks largely to our lovely hosts.

Friendliest hotel in China”
The staff, the staff and the location
We had a lovely time at the Phoenix - well up to the reviews we had read. Don't expect a posh hotel with hot and cold running bellboys, but you will get a wonderfully calm, friendly and easy going time. Lots to see around by bicycle, close enough to Yangshou but far enough out of town to be peaceful and surrounded by stunning scenery.

Relaxing, beautiful surroundings, great staff.
We felt so much at home here that we ended up extending our stay. The lovely staff speaks good english, and they helped us book everything we needed, including a phone call to our next hotel to make sure everything was fine. The food is great and the rooms spotless. Book one with a balcony, the view is magnificent. If you're tired of the crowds, go here and reload - all the sights are just a short cab drive away. If the weather lets you, bike to Yangshuo or around; it's only 7km to the city.
