We really had a wonderful stay at this hotel! The hotel is set in the most beautiful, magical botanical gardens. We were met at the gate by hotel staff member with Golf cart. Great service at hotel reception- all staff very friendly and helpful! We had a lovely ground floor room which was spacious and has a courtyard. Really comfortable...

I'm glad that I choose this hotel for my family trip esp. I travels with 8 elders! They all loved it since they could have morning walk and enjoy the scenery. The landscape of this hotel is very good. However, some rooms on the first floor have small backyard but you couldn't see a view. As for breakfast, even though...

The hotel is located in an endless botanical garden, with lots of fishponds and artificial streams and bridges between the suites and the main common buildings. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, the service is great. there are little caddies for traveling within the garden and from/to the main gate.

This hotel has several pavilions and is set in the heart of a park, with its own pleasant garden, pond and tea house. Do not accept ground floor rooms, which are dark, with tiny fenced courtyards, but rather opt for 3rd floor rooms, with balconies and lovely views over the garden. Very nice stay. Breakfast could be improved. Charming staff.

This hotel is a respite from the pace in China. Located inside a botanical garden, it is so quiet and peaceful. The staff is friendly and the breakfast buffet great, with both Chinese and Western choices. I was there for three days in April and enjoyed it immensely. The rooms are beautiful with all ammenities....and, mine on the second floor...

We stayed in the Guilinyi Royal Palace for three nights, while seeing some of the sights in Guilin. The hotel is about 45 minutes by taxi from the express train terminal, in the middle of the botanic gardens. They have a fast and efficient electric 'stretch' golf cart service to and from the main gates of the gardens, but the...

King-bedded room on the ground floor with a private patio, desk and small sitting area. Bed on the firm side but comfortable. Adequate shower pressure in bathroom, plus a fancy Japanese toilet seat for washing and heating your rear end! Beautiful swimming pool on grounds, but too chilly during our March visit to try it out. Reasonable rates included a...

Highly recommend to stay with this quiet hotel. It located at the central of the arboretum, absolutely cozy and peaceful. Hotel room is clean, and I especially love the japanese style toilet..hahaha...Food and Beverage is okay, price is not high. Their service is excellent, even it's not a very big hotel, but it feels like living in your own Palace.
