Situated inside the Botanical Gardens, this hotel is a tranquil escape from the busy city of Guilin. The hotel grounds are charming, immaculate and beautifully decorated with fish ponds, streams, bridges and a small outdoor swimming pool. Children can enjoy feeding the fish. The hotel rooms are in several buildings and open directly onto the hotel grounds. The rooms are... More

We stayed for a couple of nights only - found the garden location, and the views from our balcony really special - a very quiet spot to relax after a busy sightseeing day. We got a great tip from another reviewer before we went - use the no. 10 bus to go into town and back - its only 1... More

Glad we picked the Guilin Royal Palace for our stay in Guilin. The property has wonderful surroundings and is situated in a park. Rooms have western standard and are of good size. The restaurant closes at 9 pm and there is no cozy bar for a drink. We also would have loved a spa, to unwind after a long day... More

The Yi Royal Palace Hotel sits in a beautiful park setting with traditional Chinese architecture. A tea room is a great compliment and you should try the local Osmanthus tea. A great spread for breakfast and well appointed rooms make this a great place to stay!

We spent a few nights here recently and found the hotel to be very nice overall. We took advantage of the free transfer in from the airport which was great. We had to later pay 100 yuan to return to the airport. Most of the staff speak a little English although none are what I would call "conversational". But then,... More
