“Somewhere to hide from busy West Street”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Bamboo House owns several properties in Yangshuo. I stayed at nr. 12 Longmu Alley last August 2013
I found this to be an excellent location, central but surprisingly away from noisy West Street. Helpful staff and great value rooms, negotiation about roomrates recommended. Not all rooms have the same features, make sure to look at all available rooms before making a choice. The breakfast is not up to standards compared to others offered in Yangshuo. On the plus side Bamboo House offers great tips for daytrips in the area, has excellent bikes for rental, good laundry service, free wifi, ...
Conclusion: I stayed 5 nights and felt already at home away from home in this short period. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Check if your A/C unit is working properly. Mine was broken for one night and room gets very damp an...

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!
