A pretty little inner yard is welcome you when you are coming. Everything was very smooth from the pick up from the airport that the the giggling had arrange to get around and see the beautiful surroundings. We arrived by lunch and enjoy a nice lunch there before jumping on the bikes that you can rent at the guest house,... More

The food (both chineese and western) is fresh, well made and tasty, made almost around the clock. There is also a good variety of drinks and snacks at reasonable prices. Rooms are... More

We have spent 5 nights here with our three young children. Good location in the beautiful countryside but still close to Yangshuo by bike or taxi. We enjoyed the courtyard, the pool and especially the proposed bike tours. A previous post mentioned the food and service quality: we liked the proposed Chinese food very much, the western dishes were less... More

The people working at the Giggling tree were very friendly and helpful. Our luggage was delayed and they helped us in every way possible (calling, providing t-shirts and sunblock).The rooms are nice and their cycling trips are well prepared (not only for the sporty people)! The courtyard is casual (can be filled with other familes and kids running & playing)... More

We stayed at the Giggling Tree three nights. The hotel was clean, the staff helpful and very friendly, and the food excellent. Our room upstairs in the farmhouse was spacious, comfortable, and very inviting. Highly recommended.

Stopped on the way back to Guilin for a drink and something to eat. The place looks clean and toilets modern. We ordered 2 Chinese teas and a Mango drink. After 35 minutes waiting we had to ask where is the drinks and 10 minutes later they arrived. I think the mango drink had been sitting out the whole time... More

The Giggling Tree is a great place. Its a few KMs from Yangshuo town centre but this is great as you get to be surrounded by stunning scenery and you are away from the hustle and bustle. The staff are so helpful and attentive and we especially found Bin, Lan and Strong to be friendly and helpful. The hotel itself... More

This is a great little hotel. Friendly, helpful, comfortable and very clean. The staff helped us book trips and excursions to the river li and the local cooking school as well as taxis and transfers. The food was great too. Would highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the tiny village Aishanmen, close to the scenic Yulong river only 5 km west from tourist hotspot Yangshuo, we renovated traditional yellow brick farmer houses into a beautiful inn. The courtyard is breathtaking. Our atmospheric restaurant and terrace with scenic views give travelers the chance to breathe fresh air again. In April 2013 we have opened our outdoor swimmingpool. Why stay in the city, when the countryside is so amazing! ... more   less
