This quite smoky, very brothel-esque modern-ish hotel served our one night of sleep well, although there were quite a few novelty sexual hygiene products in liu of a minibar… Calling cards were strewn about in the halls, reminding me of a dirtier, mini-Vegas. A weird experience, but I guess that's what this formerly sleepy countryside town has become. Beware of... More

This was a budget hotel and I wasn't expecting the Ritz and to be fair the bathroom and sheets were clean. The negative - No fridge, no safe, very poor English spoken in Reception. The room smelled stale and the carpets were a... More

Basically it is a very good value for money hotel. The receptionist was very helpful, although their English was limited. We spent 2 nights... More

The location undoubtedly its the strength. Close to bus stops, and taxi rides to major attractions are cheap. At night, a market opens on the street just in front of the hotel which is nice but almost every other stand sells the same stuff, there are also quite a lot of places to eat around this area. Rooms were big,... More

convenient location for shopping, eating and sight seeing, large room, clean and well maintained but free wifi rather congested as difficult to get download speed of 1 mb. No free drinking water, room provided with pot for boiling water and tea bags. sound insulation rather poor as can hear people walking past room and noise from hawker at midnight.

Staffs don't speak english, construction at the front of hotel makes the hotel very dusty, had to wait for a while for them to finish cleaning our room before checking in, hence we had to check in late. Only thing is it is conveniently located next to pedestrian street so it's quite easy to find necessities.

This hotel is located just besides the Xicheng Pedestrian street, Guilin. The room is clean and big. Room rates during off-peak season are cheap. The hotel does not have a restaurant . However , guests can easily find food within the vicinity. Hotel guests are mainly local tourists from all over china.

Room is not bad at all! (Referring to the price)..the strong point for this hotel is on the location; there is a bakery downstairs, night market, and if your trip is to reduce some calories..say yes to walking to railway station. So, i would say YES to this hotel.....
