Bamboo House Resort
Ranked #16 of 433 Yangshuo County B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 June 2013

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.

The Bamboo House Resort was the perfect place to stay in Yangshuo. The room was impeccably neat, enormous (definitely spend the extra money for the larger room!), and comfortable. We had a room facing the street, and didn't really have any problem with the noise (though we were on the top floor). I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Yangshuo--most of the central hotels are dives and those that are further out seemed inconvenient for experiencing the town. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They helped us at every turn, setting up all of our excursions at much cheaper prices than were advertised online, and even gave us free room service on nights when we were tired and didn't want to go down to the restaurant (the restaurant serves great Western and Chinese food). Through the hotel we were able to rent bikes, purchase tickets for hiking Moon Hill, arranged bamboo raft rides on the Li and Yulong rivers, and booked a tour of the Longji Rice Terraces. We did this all in two and a half days, and without feeling exhausted! The staff just made everything so easy, and we didn't have to worry about getting ripped off (which was the most challenging aspect of our trip to China). If you're going to Yangshuo, stay here!

Room Tip: Spend the extra cash on one of the larger rooms--if you shop multiple sites, you can often find grea...

We booked 3 rooms. The deluxe rooms which are the largest are good. The smaller rooms, deluxe queen and executive are awful as the beds are too large for the room with no space for anything else. Could be claustrophobic for some. The only good thing is the toilet bowl with great bidet facilities. Food in the hotel is expensive and below average. The reception limited as they are, are helpful. But remember this is an INN not a hotel. Do not expect hotel like facilities. The location is fantastic. West street is just minutes from the door. Yangshuo Pier is also 5 minutes away. No telephone in the rooms with only a kettle for hot water. I had the smaller and my bed was never made. All it had was a large comforter sitting on the oversized bed in a very small room. You hang clothings on the bed, no closet. Not sure how the other inns in Yangshuo are like. But go for the larger rooms ONLY.

Room Tip: Go for their largest room only

I was traveling alone so wanted to stay at a small boutique hotel. This one was perfect! I had a beautiful wooden canopy bed with a balcony overlooking a courtyard and a jetted tub in the room. The location was close to shops and restaurants and the Yangshuo Cooking class.The hotel will set up the cooking lesson that is offered at the restaurant down the street There is a spa next door for massages that I heard was good from other hotel guests but I did not make it. I wish I had another night to enjoy this hotel and the charm of Yangshuo. The only problem I had was figuring out how to use the high tech toilet which reminded me of the ones in Japan-with 10 buttons for everything from heated seats to blowers etc....

This hotel was nice and comfortable with very friendly staff. Our room was quite nice but could do with a bar fridge and a safe for valuables. The only negative thing about the room was the smell of mildew coming from the AC or behind the walls??

If you havent been to Yangshou before this gem is a little difficult to find, tucked away in a sidestreet, but well worth seeking out.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Room is very clean, with a spa in the middle dividing the bedroom section from the bathroom section.

Rooms lack a fridge and a safe, but otherwise I highly recommend this place to all who want something nice and a little different.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms at the back, they arent as noisy as the rooms facing the front street.

'This is the flagship of the bamboo house chain of properties in Yangshuo. It costs almost $100 a night including an extra bed for the third person. Wifi is free, the beds are soft and comfortable, the room is spacious, the ac works well, gals at reception are pleasant and one speaks some English. This non-smoking property is less than 5 minutes walk from the edge of the pedestrian only zone which makes it easy to get to motorized transportation options; it is 5 minutes Walk to get to Xijie which is the heart of yangshuo. Lots of restaurants and stores nearby including Qin Long restaurant.
That being said, our room on the second floor was rather noisy. Pedestrian noises die down at midnight but loud car noises go on all night. There is no elevator. The bed frame has a jutting part that would catch and bruise the unwary passing knee. The room seems designed by a plumbing fetishist. A huge jacuzzi takes up a quarter of the room plus the room has a Toto type bidet toilet. The floor has many uneven surfaces qua drain channels, door entry barriers, floor molding which makes tripping a real hazard. The shower stall is completely see thru. There are no towel racks and one has step out of the glass stall to dress. Instant familiarity with your traveling companions. We could only find two sets of outlet; We never could find the switch for the lamps by the bed. The design peculiarities of our room are both unsafe and irritating.

Room Tip: There are nicer places to stay in the outskirts with great views of Karsts. If I were to do it agai...
