Bamboo House
Ranked #109 of 433 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed two nights in this hotel. Admittedly, I am not a backpacker, and maybe that is the clientele that the hotel serves. The first room that they gave us smelled so strong of mold, and since my son has asthma, I immediately switched rooms. Our room had a sign that read "the police prohibit prostitution, gambling, and drunkenness." That should have been enough to tip us off. Sleeping was non-existent since we heard fights throughout the night in the alley, and since we were with young children, it was a bit scary for them. The only plus was being within spitting distance of the main drag. However, there were several nicer hotels not too far away from the main drag that we should have stayed at. Don't stay here. I felt as if I had to wear my flip,flops the entire time that I was in my room. I made every effort to stay out as long as I could have to avoid the room, which I can't say that I've ever done before. Forgot to mention that the bathroom sink was not even attach to the countertop, so water leaked everywhere when you'd brush your teeth.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel 4 nights. The room are quite big, clean with AC and heating.Hot shower. Free Wifi. Restaurant downstairs is serving excellent food especially their breakfast (bamboo breakfast is delicious). All day long they are serving home made banana cake and brownies.

They have open a second hotel (bamboo house resort), on West Road. A little bit more expense but newer, offering great comfort such as jacuzzi.

What we appreciated the most in staying at the Bamboo House was all the good advices and services that it offers. Doris and Lisa speak perfect English!

Arriving from Hong Kong by air, we asked the hotel to organize a taxi to pick us up. And from then Doris and Lisa took care of organizing activities for the rest of our stay:
- cycling
- bamboo rafting
- Yangshuo dancing show
- Huangyao village tour
- day trip on a boat
- Transport from Yangshuo to Ping'an

I would highly recommend the Bamboo House to anyone looking for a great value, location and excellent customer service. Doris, Annie and Lisa are very accommodating and speak excellent English. The food is very good, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is willing to help with any tour or other arrangements you may need. A great experience!

Room Tip: There are no elevators so if you have trouble with stairs, book a room lower in hotel.

Anne is a very helpful person, she arranged a taxi from Guilin airport direct to the hotel and then arranged various activities. She speaks excellent English! The hotel is at the river end of West Street and is therefore in a quiet area. The rooms are excellent with a huge bed and also a balcony. It is only a minute or two walk to the many restaurant, bars and shops. Great place!

We planned to stay 4 nights at this hotel but we cut it short. We got a family room which was very spacious and had a nice balcony. Beds were very comfortable and staff was very nice.
But we misjudged the amount of noise the nearby pub would have during the holiday week and it was just impossible for us to catch any sleep till about 3am or so when the noise died off.
The pub is just one or two shops away from the hotel. But if you do plan to hang out till late then this might be perfect for you as its right on the west street. Otherwise I would suggest to opt for their other hotel which is situated a bit away from west street yet walkable or other hotels nearby.

On the room, it was on the top floor so lots of stairs, think it was the attic, there were only two rooms side by side and we could hear everything from the other room. But balcony was nice and had a nice view of the mountain.

Room Tip: If there is one not facing west street may noise levels would be lower
