Universal Guilin Hotel
Ranked #45 of 659 Hotels in Guilin
Reviewed 10 December 2015

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 from the function room we didn't get a lot of sleep.

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 out on it!
The hotel's location is good: near to the river, and a two minute walk from the shops and bars of the pedestrian area.
WiFi was available in the lobby and the breakfast restaurant (I can't remember about the room).
Breakfast was OK, with both Chinese and Western choices available. There was even an omelette station, where your eggs could be cooked to order. Weirdly, the breakfast also included cheesecake...
I enjoyed my stay here, and would choose it again.

Well! We can't rave enough about this place because we got a fantastic suite after we had only booked a standard room. Huge comfy bed (the only soft one we slept on in China), spa bath, beautiful shower, lazy boy lounge suite, 2 toilets, dining area as well as office space with a big screen computer. Even the carpet was clean.
Hey, of course we were happy!
Our room overlooked the river which was very picturesque, especially at night with all the lights. We checked out to go on the Li River Cruise before returning the day after and after my partner said we loved the suite..we got it again! This stay was the highlight of our trip. Breakfast was ok too! Aircon not as cold as we would have liked but still ok.
