“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. What a wonderful surprise. We were expecting a double sized bed as the room was listed as a double room and were worried that it would be too small but boy were we pleasantly surprised!! Firstly, the room is huge even by North American standards. Everything was new and clean. The auto toilet is fun. The bed is a king-size and very comfortable - not hard like the typical Asian beds. We had a balcony with a hammock chair and another chair perfect for morning coffees. It was quiet after about 10pm. Before that you can hear the signing from nearby street performers.

The location is smack dab in the middle of Western area with all kinds of shops and restaurants.

All the staff are very nice and helpful. We booked our bamboo rafting trip, taxi back to Guilin airport (300RMB) and the longhi rice terrace tours all through the hotel. Doris was especially helpful and spoke good English. We ate breakfast once at the hotel restaurant which was good.

We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We were in the double room facing the back but we peeked in the other rooms on the second floor and...

A brilliant oasis in the mayhem of Yangshuo! Central location is great for convenience, staff are brilliant: very friendly and helpful. Also best hamburgers in town. Ate them whilst in the jacuzzi bath watching the Olympic games. One of the few hotels where you pay a bit more, but get a lot more. Well worth it particularly for the slightly older more discerning traveller who enjoys their creature comforts! We kept going back to Yangshuo, but never found anywhere so good.

Room Tip: Get a room with a jacuzzi and balcony. Rooms at the front are slightly noisier, but great for 'p...

This hotel is amazing!!!! The rooms are unbelievably huge with the most awesome hot tub baths. It looks deceiving from the outside but awesome on the inside. The staff are helpful and friendly. Best hotel I have stayed in by far! Also it is just off the main street so not so noisy.

Room Tip: all rooms are awesome!

This is a hotel and not a resort as the name suggests. Nevertheless it is a nice small boutique hotel that is centrally located, quite new (stayed 10-13 Jun 12) and is in very good condition.
The deluxe room I booked was large, and had a large spa bath that is great. The toilet and shower have glass walls and maybe suitable for lovers, but may not be everybody's cup of tea, if you need complete privacy.
The lady at the hotel reception ran out to meet me as the taxi driver unloaded my bags and carried the bags to my room. (PS. I had two broken arms in plaster!!)
I did not try the food at the hotel, as there were so many eating places nearby that I did not get a chance to try the hotel food, but what I saw in the hotel looked good.
Across the road there is a great mango juice place, and it is a must try, if you like fresh mango; the drink is most refreshing, good quality and cheap! There is also a good Laundromat below the hotel that is useful. You can walk to most parts of the city, and do not forget the nearby markets and park, the latter of which is quite nice for a walk, and provides some impressive and bold mountain views. Would be happy to stay again!

Room Tip: If you like space, then pay the extra cost and book a deluxe room, avoid the main street side as it...

Well located just off West Street so you get all the convenience without the noise. The rooms are very new and clean and very good sized. Beds are really comfortable and Wi-Fi was good. All the rooms seem to have some kind of jacuzzi or bath tubs. Service is very friendly and the restaurant served good Western food.

Ony downside - you should be aware that the rooms are open concept style - there is no privacy for the bathroom and toilet (glass is only partially matted) so you must feel comfortable taking a shower and using the toilet in the presence of your room mate. Otherwise, would recommend this hotel.

The Bamboo House Resort is a terrific value for the money in Yangshuo. This was my fourth visit to the area and my first stay at this hotel - it was far and away better than the other places where we've stayed. It is located in an excellent spot; near enough to West Street for great access, but far enough away that you can actually sleep at night. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful; they arranged our transport to and from the Guilin Airport and did a number of other nice little things for us. The food was very good (although a little slow at breakfast time) and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Well done!

Room Tip: Try to arrange to get a room facing the front of the hotel as these have better views and nice balco...

We chose this hotel because we had read about the jacuzzis in all the rooms and were not disappointed. We chose the best kind of room available with a jacuzzi for two and the toilet in a separate cubicle (in the other rooms the toilet was in the same room as the bed and the jacuzzi). The room was quite big but unfortunately there was no place to sit except at a dressing table which was not very comfortable. When it is warmer, the balcony is a nice place to sit for two persons. The room was equipped with air conditioning/heating and we got to use the wifi for free. Even though the room was facing away from the street, it was rather loud until past midnight because you can hear the music from the bars that are close by. We used ear plugs every night.
The staff was nice and very helpful, but sometimes it was just too much. After a day in Yangshuo and surroundings, where you cannot take a step without someone trying to sell something to you, you just wish your hotel to be a haven in which you are safe from all the touts. Unfortunately, in this hotel it just went on. Whenever we approached the entrance, one or several persons jumped up, asking whether we wanted them to book us a tour, a bus ticket or a bamboo raft and if we wanted to eat something or buy a pomelo etc.
And maybe the fact that you can book rooms by the hour (if I interpret the "o'clock rate" correctly) explains why we never saw other guests and they still cleaned many of the rooms every day.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is not facing the street.
