I traveled Yangshuo with my mother-in-law and my little son. We are lucky to live in Fonglou hotel. It is a very beautiful, quiet and comfortable hotel. My mother-in-law liked the style of the hotel very much. Most of the things in the hotel were made by hand. They are very unique and traditional.

The hotel is not far away from the Moon Hill. We can get there by bicycle and it only takes 15 minutes.

My son liked the hotel too. We rode the bicycle on the quiet path around the hotel when sunrise in the morning and sunset in the afternoon every day. We rode to the vineyard to pick grapes. We also rode to the mountain to attend outdoor activities. We were very excited every day. My son said it was a wonderful time in Fonglou hotel.

It's a very fabulous hotel and I experienced a wonderful week in there. The view around the hotel is beautiful, the hotel room and service is awesome! The cooker in there provide very delicious chinese and western cuisine and the manager of the hotel is very delicacy to care about each visitor's feeling and they really did a good job! Not to say the hotel provides a series landscapes for tour, it is a highly recommended hotel and suggest the touring under the hotel's guidance would be better.

Room Tip: The balcony face to the mountain with a better view.

Tasteful example of rural China away from the main Yangshuo buzz. Located within small village overlooking mountains and close to mountain bike trails. Best food in town, don't bother going to the restaurants near the river. Jerry and his family are great hosts.
Nicely decorated and clean rooms with great views.

We live in Hong Kong and wanted some peace and quiet for a weekend and we got exactly that. Guilin is absolutely beautiful but because it's so beautiful, a lot of tourists (mostly domestic) come to the area, packing the main road and the key sights. This hotel is one of the exceptions. It is close to everywhere you'd like to go, but it feels removed. It's quiet, relaxing and homey. The best part of this hotel is Jerry, the owner, and the staff. Jerry is one of the funnier, interesting, caring hotel owners we've come across (perhaps the most!). He understands your needs and makes sure you get exactly what you want (and he makes you laugh on the way!). Lily and Ann are equally amazing -- they are always smiling, wishing to help you in any possible way, and just happy to be there. Couldn't say anything better about the staff!

Then, the Food (capital "F"). MY GOD! Talk about yummy Chinese food. We live in HK so we get very good Chinese food, but the food we got at this hotel is some of the best Chinese food we've ever had. We strongly recommend the beer fish (which is a regional specialty but the one they serve here is subliminal!) and the eggplant (the noodles and fried rice are also great!). And then Jerry recommended we try their home-made pizza. Thin, soft, super yummy crust! Perfect!

The rooms are also great, clean, with AC, nothing over the top, great bed, little balconies with awesome views of the majestic mountains. You can rent bikes from the hotel at a super cheap price, which we took around the area. And the hotel is also very close to Moonhill, which we hiked and LOVED! It was a perfect weekend getaway and we wouldn't change a thing (other than trying to stay longer!). We also recommend going to the water/light show downtown. It's crowded but totally worth it.

We booked for two rooms (family of four) and were very promptly checked in on arrival. The staff (two young girls) were doing everything from lifting our luggage to arranging for our ordered meals. The girls arranged the taxis, excursions, etc with a friendly smile. We really enjoyed our stay at this retreat.

Room Tip: Our ground floor room had a garden

It is a small inn located in country, peacefull but not remote. The facilities are not luxury but clean and natual. We lived in the family room. The design is great! Two rooms are seperated by the washing room. And each room has a small balcony. It is cosy to have a coffee there. But if you do not want to stay alone, you can sit in their courtyard and chart with their staffs. I like the convasation with Jerry! He is nice and instereting. We have good breakfast here. And we also have Chinese dishes here. We all love Chinese dishes. It tastes delicious. If you're vigorous, you can have some sports suggested by them. It is challenging. In short, if you would like, they can arrange everything for your with a reasonable price.
