Breakfast is very good, location good, nice rooms. The room wifi is amazingly fast. This hotel is very near to shopping places. Shopping is comparatively cheap. Cautionary advice for night walk. At least 2 days visit recommended.

We had a short stay at the Universal Hotel on our trip around China. We spent little time in the hotel because of our busy schedule but once again we received quality support from the duty staff ,throughout the facility. Breakfast was good and rooms were comfortable and clean. Hotel was well located for our busy programme of tours and...

I've stayed here many times over the years. I love this hotel for the excellent location right next to the Li River and a very short walk from Guilin's night market and pedestrian street. The rooms are fine, not luxury but they will do for a few nights. The breakfast is also good, although it can get a bit crowded...

This hotel was ideal for one night whilst travelling around China for three weeks. We were not there long enough to judge, we have no complaints. Breakfast was fine and we slept well after a long day of traveling.

The hotel is old and need a make over to revitalise it. Its in a good location next to the Li river. It is convenient to get to the city centre from the hotel. Wifi is also not good. However, they have a good restaurant with a nice view of the river. Had dinner there and the food was excellent.

The room decor and furnishings are old and worn. Room lighting is inadequate and it is rather dark. Location is good, with the Li River in front of the hotel. Included buffet breakfast had selections of western and chinese food.

The location is the best thing this place has going for it. Other than that it's a bit depressing really. While our room overlooked one of the lakes, the windows were so dirty we couldn't really see much. It also overlooked the extremely busy bridge and access road and between the noise of traffic and awful and very loud singing...

Whilst not the height of luxury, this hotel had everything I needed for my one night stay: a comfortable bed (softer than most I slept in in China), aircon that worked effectively, and a shower with reasonable water pressure. The view from my room, at the rear of the hotel, was not attractive- but I didn't spend much time looking...
