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

I normally take lots of pictures of the hotels I stay in, but with this one I didnt have the need, as it looks the same as the picture. I did however take pictures for the bathroom. it was really clean and fancy. Loved my room; was cleaned daily. Reception staff knew English. I didn't use the restaurant, as there... More

This hotel is at the budget end of hotels in Guilin. In saying that it is perfectly adequate if you want to save some dollars. The lift is small and there is only one and I couldnt get the internet(cabled) to work in the room using my wireless router. It was clean and the room was large. The bathroom facilities... More

Cheap, convient, clean place to stay. Breakfast is not included. The location is awesome. Many of the Guilin attractions can be easily accessed by walking or taking a bus. There is a tour guide service on site for more tour options. Downside: They offer free airport pick up. The guy didnt speak english, and was working for the tour guide... More

The hotel is in a good location. Night market, convenient store is just a few steps. The small food cart opposite the hotel offers good dumpling, and about 2 mins walk, a bakery that offers very good bread and pastry. Now going back to the hotel... The good first... The room is spacious, nicely decorated. But but, the negative of... More

Lovely little hotel located near the night market and a 15 minute walk from the central square and its surrounding attractions. Modest lobby gives way to spacious, well equipped, very comfortable rooms. Free unlimited wifi. Staff respond to emails very quickly, though not all speak great English. Complimentary airport transfer worked well, even with a somewhat bizarre driver who insisted... More

We stayed five nights in room 6220, which was huge. It was actually a suite of two rooms, each with two small doubles/large singles. Other triples looked much smaller, so I think we were lucky. The room was reasonably clean and the bathroom had a powerful shower with plenty of hot water. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but... More

We planned to stay there for 1 night arriving late and leaving early. It does not really qualify as a proper hotel as the standard is very low.The staff does not speak English and the setting was not to our liking. In the rooms, there are electric sockets behind the mattress which is dangerous and the electric plugs of the... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is perfect. Close to the night markets and a few restaurants and bakeries. Within walking distance to Elephant park and the night cruise. I would recommend the hotel. The pricing was good and the previous reviews are good. We booked 2 rooms for the 2 adults and 2 kids.
