I had researched all the 5 star Hotels in Guilin. This was almost the only one with a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. Also has an indoor pool, gym and yoga room. Specifically, the room: We were in the Horizon room which is a little pricier but allows you to use the Executive Lounge. That means you can relax in...

I was a little bit concerned by some comments that indicate it is not what they expected for a Shangri-La hotel. Compared to what? Sure it isn't the same as in the big city. Guilin is not a big city. It is a tourist town for coming to the Li River cruise and other activities. But this hotel is fantastic!...

After much research, I booked this hotel because I felt like it was the best option in town. I was definitely right. Massive hotel right on the river, beautiful lobby, good buffet breakfast and classy atmosphere. Rooms were clean and spacious. Would recommend this one to travelers.

Considering it's a five star hotel and the reputation of Shangri-la chain, this property is slightly below the standard. Service is great, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Some processes can be more efficient, e.g. Have to stop by front desk to check out. Snack booth and the dancing show are a nice touch. The room is a bit dated,...

The Shangri-La hotel is right on the river slightly outside of city centre. Its a pretty big hotel with not too much within wlaking distance. The hotel facilities are quite good and they have "loca cultural" shows in the lobby. I also like the ping pong table there. Overall decent quality hotel in Guilin.

Having stayed at (and worked at) a few Shangs previously, I came here hoping for a similarly consistent experience. Although I was quite pleased with the room (we upgraded on arrival to a River view with Horizon Lounge benefits) and general layout, what was disappointing was the Lounge. The offerings were rather limited and seemed short staffed at all times....

This is without doubt one of the nicest hotels we have stayed, and value for money too. Views are beautiful, a great bar, lovely theme, great pool and gardens, and the rooms are modern and spacious. Definitely worth staying if you travel to Guilin Room service needs improving though. Brochure says 24 hours, and when you call them, its closes...

We stayed over New Years and had a lovely time. The hotel is very big with lots of amenities. The price of the hotel is very low compared to other Shangri-la properties. With that in mind, we were very happy with the value and experience. It lacked the true luxury feel of other Shangri-La properties, but was still very nice....
