We stayed at Fonglou for 4 nights in January 2011 and I can highly recommend the hotel. All communication with Luna over email before we arrived was incredibly quick and efficient and Luna, Lily and the other ladies made our stay. The room was lovely, with the hugest most comfortable bed, a welcome food hamper, hairdryer and replenishable hot drinks and kettle. The bathroom with heat lamp, powerful shower and fluffy towels was spotless.
Yes the hotel is out of town but it is in such a quiet and peaceful location that is worth the taxi fare compared to loud and busy Yangshou. We made use of the bikes, walked into town once (1hr 15mins to West St) and got a few taxis at 30RMB one way into Yangshou. We never ate at the hotel restaurant in the evenings but made use of the local restaurants in Fonglou and the Italian restaurant (also called Luna) 15 minutes walk away.
Luna and Lily went out of their way to help us out with our lack of Chinese, writing down instructions and translations for us without even asking. The current 50% off discount is the icing on the cake!More
