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.....

Not only the fact the staff spoke literally no English beside the a little hotel vocabulary is a minus point - as well the fact people from the street had access to the room floors at any time and every day people came to distribute every room with commercial for erotic massages and more. Additionally - the shower was leaking... More

The hotel staff doesn't speak English, the rooms are clean but it does smell like stale cigarettes. However, the location is great for the price. Elephant trunk park, and other scenic areas is about a 5 minute walk. The hotel does not have an onsite restaurant. No worries, there are plenty of restaurants and street food right downstairs. I have... More

The hotel staff was great, the location is good. The hotel sent a taxi to pick us up from the airport- save at least 100 RMB . The room was big but smell terrible. We took the most expensive room! Not very clean and a bit old. If you don't want to pay a lot and be at the center... More

Room was clean however a little musty. But location (near the market) and travel services for booking a bamboo raft down the Li River to Yangshuo really useful, especially as we were on a tight schedule and only in Guilin for the evening. Some English spoken.

Located at the daily night market, with almost nothing much! Things traded are the same all over, walk over a lane and you walks through all! Hopefully next visit, they would be changes in variances! Good location for convenience, foods are so so,...

This is a well priced hotel a short walk from the lakes and the night market are right at your doorstep. The triple room was a good size, just make sure you ask for a non-smoking room as the room we were given smelt terribly but we were quickly given another room that was fine. The hotel is a little...

There is nothing that I can complain about in terms of the quality of the rooms for this price. The beds are quite comfortable, the rooms are spacious, the air conditioners are quite powerful, and the tourism desk provides many decent and well priced half day and full day tours for you to consider. Outside is a nightly market where... More

This hotel has a perfect location, near the open markets and pedestrian area of the city. it was a very basic hotel, and even though we asked for a non smoking room it was clear that it was a smoking room. there was a strong smell of old cigarette smoke. The staff could speak english and they had a tour... More
