Our expectations were high of this hotel, but whilst the hotel was still good, it missed the mark slightly. I am writing this based on expectations associated with a 5* hotel from an international chain, so may seem picky but I think it's fair. The breakfast was adequate, with the usual range of cereal, bakery, Chinese cooked fayre. However the... More

This hotel is probably not located in the most convenient area, but its "semi-seclusion" gives you a peaceful feeling. The lobby bar, the gardens, the pool, are very nice and comfortable. The quality of the construction and decor are impeccable. The gym is small but it is complete and new. It has beautiful outdoor sitting areas where you can grab... More

Stayed here for one night with our China tour group. What a beautiful hotel!. Spacious lobby with staff in traditional costume doing welcome dances and handing out drinks and wet towels on our arrival. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The evening buffet was amazing with the best choice of food from our whole trip. If you can't find... More

As usual, the Shangri-La doesn't disappoint. This was a fabulous hotel on the Li River in Guilin. The rooms were big and spacious. The lobby lounge and hotel restaurants were well staffed, clean and full of delicious options. The hotel staff was very attentive and helpful. We would stay here again. The bonus was the great song and dance show... More

I don't think there are better options in the town, so if need be we... More

Hotel has good facilities including gym and large pool. It has a kids play room as well as kids pool and playground so our 2 year old enjoyed the stay. The staff in the club lounge were extremely friendly and really made the majority of our stay very pleasant. The pool staff however we found to be extremely inattentive -... More

however the air conditioning was poor at the very best and we suffered a hot night for no good reason. We reported the problem, but it did not get better. The rooms are nicely appointed although the hallways (not air conditioned) smelled. Hotel's buffet was nicely done with interesting food stations. A one glass of wine with dinner does not... More

Outstanding hotel with great amenities; indoor and outdoor pools, health club and club lounge. Would highly recommend club lounge package - good value and service was outstanding! Travel agents available to help with river cruise bookings. A distance from the centre of Guilin but taxis are abundant and cheap. Fitness area was fantastic! All staff were kind, courteous and very... More

This hotel is situated just one-half mile from the center of town, situated in a beautiful and exotic location. The lobby, rooms, staff and service is #1, but the food is a lifetime memory as are all of your experiences in this most beautiful location in South China. You won't regret one moment of your stay.
