We spent one week at the Giggling Tree with our two young children (6&4). Room was spacious and beautiful, bed comfortable, airco up and running, breakfast fantastic, food great, staff super fiendly, very much to do in the area. In short: "the best week of our lives!!!!!" Can't wait to go back, they even have a pool now!!!

This is an excellent place to stay in a very beautiful part of China in a tranquil setting away from the lively environment of Yangshao. Staff go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay. There's excellent advice about cycling locally, cooking classes and other local options and individual travel needs are well catered for. Accommodation in private...

An excellent place to stay with a 2 years old active kid. Rooms were spotless and spacious, the staff very helpfull and the pancakes for breakfast something our son still talks about! Bikes for rent with comfi baby seat. At only 15 minutes taxi ride from Yangshuo, a calm and beautiful place I recommend to everybody!

After 3 weeks of traveling through China it was a treat to be able to relax a few days at this wonderful place in the beautiful countryside about 30 minutes from the busy city centre.

Stopped in at Giggling Tree on a bike ride and was blown away by the grounds and uninterrupted view this gem of a place has. I'm paying 3x as much at Tea Cozy for similar accommodations and service (English friendly). Tea Cozy is very nice, but if you're looking to save, and seemingly not feel like it, Giggle all the...

This place is amazing! We stayed here last summer and loved it. The rooms were great value for money, we were given a double and large single bed for two of us. Very spacious and felt like luxury after a week of hostel dorms! We ended up eating here every night, a great selection of food with both Chinese and...

In November 2012 we spent three nights at The Giggling Tree. It was just great and incredibly nice! In advance Paulien, Karsten and their staff helped us preparing the trip and answered every question. Once we arrived we just felt being at home and could relax easily. We enjoyed to stay in the countryside having fresh air. Our children (7...

The Giggling Tree is an amazing place, with the most-helpful staff we've seen in 20 places we've stayed in China. The refurbished farmhouse retains much of the character of the original, unlike the cultural tendency to set aside old things. The food from the Giggling Tree kitchen is fantastic, with a wide variety of authentic options, including Dutch, German, and...

Thank you for your beautiful review. After we read it we immediately checked in which room you were to check your mattrass as we were quite surprised to read you thought it was hard. But you are absolutely right. The room you were in was still having one of the old mattrasses which indeed are much harder than our new...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the tiny village Aishanmen, close to the scenic Yulong river only 5 km west from tourist hotspot Yangshuo, we renovated traditional yellow brick farmer houses into a beautiful inn. The courtyard is breathtaking. Our atmospheric restaurant and terrace with scenic views give travelers the chance to breathe fresh air again. In April 2013 we have opened our outdoor swimmingpool. Why stay in the city, when the countryside is so amazing! ... more   less
