Basic hotel but more than adequate for a few nights. The room was clean and nice and the breakfast had a good basic buffet breakfast catering to asian and western tastes. A bit of a walk from the centre of the town but they had a complimentary shuttle bus so wasn't a problem getting to the main area.

Stayed here for two nights. Not bad with the price. Room is clean and well equipped. Beds are quite comfy. The hotel is quite central located in Guilin with 5mins walk to Dongxi Xiang district and if you walk along the riverabank, it takes 10mins to the Mont elephant.

right on the river front by the bridge restaurant is on the first floor and serves authentic, not western, Chinese food the bedroom looked out of the back of the hotel so no views but this made it quieter than being over looking the main street

Guilin is very beautiful and one stays outdoors as much as possible. Do try the Osmanthus flower wine. But the stay at this hotel wasn't nice I was there only a couple of nights, so maybe got dumped into the lousier rooms. The room was smallish, not lighted well enough since only shaded lamps were there, no ceiling lights. The...

This hotel comprises of seven stories. It is located within Guilin City Centre. In other words, it is within less than five minutes walk away from the Old Town. However, don't get excited because it has been commercialised with kitsch old looking buildings from the outset but having H&M as a tenant. You get the idea. Ancient items are far...

Shame we only stayed one night, best room so far on our tour. Overlooked the river and the bridge. Close to the old town, mostly pedestrianised, with lots of places to eat. Breakfast was pretty good. Only negative thing was having to reset the ac when coming back to the room as it seemed to lose the temp and on...

Visited during month long trip to China. Not the best it worse hotel we stayed in. Only one night which was probably for the best. Breakfast for westerners was very poor. Supplied with a lovely lunch box for a cruise on the river li but this was supplied by the West Bank cafe.

This hotel has a perfect location for a visit to Guilin, close to the river and the old town centre where all the restaurants are. The rooms are good and clean and every thing is at walking distance. Make sure you stroll along the riverbank in the evening, that's where it's all happening.

room was comfy, but they could do with a refurb, there was some work going on so breakfast was on the top floor, which was ok, peoples apartments were very close and when you left everything was close, but you get a sense of how difrerently people live
