I spent just over a week at the Mountain View Retreat in Yangshuo and strongly recommend it to other travellers. The retreat is perfectly located near all the key attractions (Moon Hill, dragon cave, mud and thermal baths, Banyan tree, river etc) but still maintains the feeling of being nestled among the mountains. The greenery starts at the back of...

the hotel staff was great and room are comfortable (they look better on pics). The best part is that it is very close to the key "tourist" places but still just far enough from the crowded west street. Best is to hire a cycle from the hotel itself and head out into the biking tacks.
