The Explorer is located right in the heart of the Yangshuo tourist district and is a few seconds walk away from West Street...the place to be for market stalls, street food and wild crowds at night. The location is brilliant but it does come with it's downside. If you're wanting an early night bring sturdy earplugs and expect loud music and crowd noise as the hotel is located between a multitude of bars and karaoke joints. The beds themselves are rock solid and probably the most uncomfortable I've encountered in China so far, I folded over the duvet and slept in the middle of it to add an extra layer of softness. The room was clean but the drains in our bathroom smelled really bad so we had to keep the bathroom fan on most of the time. There is free wifi which went a long way towards making up for the problems. If you have an open mind and want a good locaton then this hotel is definitely for you. If you like peace and quiet then maybe find somewhere else!

This was a wonderful little place to stay in Yangshuo. The front entrance opened into a small atrium-like central lobby area that was very nice for meeting and talking to people.

An attached computer room had three computers with internet access for a reasonable price.

Also attached to the lobby was the MC Blues pub with some great drinks (beer and cocktails) and food to be had. In fact Yangshuo was one of the rare places in China where you could get a cocktail if you desired.

The rooms themselves were nice, but quite small (as was the bathroom). The bed was one of the more confortable beds I slept on in China. Rooms were air-conditioned and had a small TV that I never used.

The location is just off West Street and within walking distance of all the activities in Yangshuo.
