Not the greatest location as slightly out of the centre which is very pretty. Rooms which I'm sure we're once lovely and modern now feel tired and in need of update although the shower was excellent Helpful and friendly staff

The hotel rooms were clean enough but... Room 1- on the bedside table there were 2 packages of condoms, a pair of women and men underwear and a cotton towelette all for sale. I felt that I should have been renting the room 'by the hour' rather than for the night. The bed was really lumpy and the springs could... More

The Elan is a Chinese hotel so we have compared it to other Chinese hotels we've stayed . Anyone who has traveled in China will understand that there are Chinese hotels and Western hotels, and shift expectations accordingly. 1. Non English speaking receptionist very reluctant to check us in, kept ignoring us and dealing with any Chinese guest-took over 30... More

Everything was perfect during my stay. The hotel is at 5 minutes walk from the train station, rooms are beautiful and the bathroom is the best I've ever had. The ladies at the reception are smiling, welcoming and ready to please. If I have to raise a complaint I would suggest not to take tours offered by the front desk.

The staff members spoke some English which was good and quite helpful. The tourism desk at the lobby is very helpful and the lady there was really nice in advising where to go and how to get there. The rooms were alright. The only downside was that the room I stayed in was extremely noisy in the morning because it... More

Stayed at Elan for 5 nights!!! And no complaints!! Read the reviews of others who stayed here and booked it. When we reached Guilin, the cab driver told us that Elan is not a good hotel, for the same rate you can book other 4 stars hotel with big rooms! I got a bit worried thinking that the reviews I...

This was a great place for the price and even twice the amount. Not sure it will maintain its low prices because it is new and this may be an introductory offer. It is most clean and well kept. Only downside is VERY few staff members speak English or any language other than a Chinese dialect.

I just returned from Guilin, China. The scenery was breathtaking...lush greenery, misty mountains and rich heritage. Unfortunately, I was totally disappointed by my 5 days stay in Elan Inn, Guilin. I booked a room via Expedia website and my Chinese friend even called up Elan Inn to re-confirm the booking plus airport transfer to the hotel in Mandarin. We arrived... More

We stayed at Elan on our way through Guilin. The price was great; RMB218 for a room with a bath (I think it's called the POP room ?), but that may just be an introductory offer as the hotel just opened. It's walking distance from the train station (where you can catch buses up to LongJi Rice Terraces for about... More
