“If you only have one night, you better do it right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

So we spent 590RMB on our night at this fancy B&B. The room was well heated you could stay in the Jacuzzi for hours. High tech toilet which left us puzzled for hours on how to flush?! We got the back room facing the mountains all rooms have balconies two chair and a table. The location is great 2min walk away from Western street hence away from the unnecessarily loud clubs. Ask for Anna at the front desk and they'll help u and every way possible. (And not rip u off)

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

When checking into the Bamboo House Resort you'll be greeted by a warm and friendly smile. If the person working doesn't speak English, he/she will soon get someone who does. (Note: It's always good to know at least a few phrases from the language used in the country, but my Chinese is definitely very limited.) After a quick check-in I was taken to an impeccably clean room on the front of the hotel. Yes, the bathtub, shower, and Japanese-style commode are not walled off as in most hotels, but I found this difference to be fine. After unpacking I stretched out on the bed and discovered the best mattress since my arrival in China. The balcony definitely is a good place to 'people-watch'. The activity from the street can be heard in the room, but not so much that it disturbed my sleeping (and I go to bed early). I had breakfast there twice...delicious both days. Though the hotel really is just a five minute walk from the bus station, it was a little difficult to find so here's a tip on its location. When walking from the bus stop you'll cross two bridges. When you get to the third bridge (don't cross it), look to your right. There's a sign on the front/top of the hotel with its name. Finally, after relaxing a bit, most every traveler goes to West Street. You'll probably pay twice as much as you should because you're only paying half as much as the original price before the bargaining game started. When you realize what you've paid for all those souvenirs, come back to the Bamboo House Resort, run a hot bath, and let water in the jetted tub massage a weary body. For the price, location, and great staff, the Bamboo House Resort is a jewel.

As much as I liked Yangshuo itself, I liked this place as well. The rooms are rather small, but cozy and furnished pretty well. The room we stayed in (306, deluxe suit) was furnished with white furniture in French style. The most pleasant part of the interior is the hot tub.
In some rooms the bathroom is open, which is not suitable for every one..
The staff speaks decent English, friendly and helpful. No matter what you ask them about - taxi to the airport, bikes rental or some emergency case, like we had with our toddler, they are ready and eager to help you.
Pretty low prices when it comes to food there.
There's a supermarket right across the street, atm, lotsa restaurants. The hospital and a pharmacy are also nearby.

Other review comments are spot on: the small rooms are pretty cramped, and the bigger rooms are quite spacious. Regardless of size, each room that I saw was quite nicely done, with the exception of the open bathrooms. Front facing rooms have balconies and look over chengzhong street; back facing rooms are best to keep the drapes closed. Staff are great, free wifi, and a good location . And, important to note that there are multiple bamboo house properties, which can be confusing. Breakfast was good, can't speak for other meals. They also arranged transport back and forth to Guilin airport - easy and no hassles.

We stayed 3 nights here after a busy 12 days touring Chinese cities. It was perfect as a getaway from stress. Fantastic room facilities, and incredibly friendly staff. The wholesome breakfast made a great start to the day. Anni was so helpful in organising day trips and activities for us, and the hotel is totally central for anything you wish to do in Yangshuo. Don't miss out on the chance to stay here if you are in the area.... and the bedroom hot tubs are fantastic after a hot day out on the road. Martin Fiona & family.

Room Tip: Go for deluxe !!

As it turns out, the Bamboo House Resort is rather an inn, with twelve rooms, four each located on the 2nd to 4th floor while the 1st (ground) floor constitutes the reception and restaurant. The rooms are rather unorthodox (to say the least). Each room on a floor is unique, with its own layout and furniture, with a French flavor (apparently designed by a French friend of the owner). However, the biggest surprise, and maybe not to everyone’s taste is the fact that there is no wall, or for that matter any barrier between the bedroom and the bathroom (including the toilet). It certainly does take some getting used to. However, the employees did mention that some curtains may be available on request for the ‘more prudish’, and as a matter of fact, the staff is under the impression that their arrangement is in accordance with the Western norm. In any case, it was quite an experience to be sleeping beside the Jacuzzi (every room has one, and perhaps the reason for the “Resort” in the name). The beds are comfortable enough, the other amenities adequate, and although located at one end of the busy pedestrian street at Yangshuo, the rooms are surprisingly quite, probably due to the double-glazed windows. The overall cleanliness is beyond reproach. The location is perfect, with most that needs to be explored in town within striking distance by foot, or by bike if one desires to explore the hinterland (the hotel will arrange rental). One is spoilt for food choices in Yangshuo (and probably China in general). However, the restaurant at the Bamboo House does churn our fairly decent local and Western meals, at prices lower than the more touristy eateries outside.

On the balance, the biggest asset of the Bamboo House Resort is its staff- one of the most friendly, helpful and cheerful bunch that we have encountered. The relationship actually preceded our arrival at Yangzhou, regular e-mails updating our most recent status, helpful advice, organizing transport and so forth, so that we ‘knew’ each other by the time we arrived, and were good friends by the time we departed. Amongst the staff, Anne, Doris and Coco speak good English and do endeavor to fulfill all reasonable requests.

Note: Bamboo House Resort is one of the three (and the most up-market) properties run by the proprietor. The others are the Bamboo House Inn and Bamboo House Hotel, so one can should be wary when making bookings.

We really enjoyed our stay at bamboo house resort. The rooms were really clean and spacious, each with a Japanese style toilet and hot tub (though ours wasn't working). The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful in booking our transport and activities. Location was excellent except that there was some construction going on next door that was really unbearable. When we alerted the staff, they immediately made arrangements to change rooms. Definitely recommended but confirm which room you're getting.
