Peacefull Chinese style hotel located at the botanical garden. Big rooms in good condition, air-condition works very well, spacious bathrooms with window, reasonable price for the minibar. Big outside area with well kept garden, small pool, teahouse (offering tea ceremony and live music performance) and various seatings. The restaurant offers Chinese dishes and provide a good breakfast with a little... More

on arrival, I was disappointed that my deluxe room looked out onto a few trees and a fence - they couldn't have responded more helpfully, and moved me immediately to a first floor room which looked over the gardens. it is the setting here which is a joy, so really worth having a balcony with a view. My room was... More

The location is wonderful, the exterior and grounds are quite nice (relatively new but in traditional style), the rooms are a bit on the basic side but comfortable -- not luxurious/ trendy but certainly more than adequate, quiet, clean. There is a tea room in which you can experience a tea ceremony while listening to exquisite quqin (stringed instrument) music.... More

This is a gem. This is a great boutique hotel with beautiful rooms. Located within the Guilin botanical garden, it is surrounded by an oasis of peace, which shields it from the city's hectic. Highly recommended. Tip: Book a room with garden view.

the hotel is located in the middle of the botanical garden, you can take long walks there, listen to the birds and watch beautiful plants and flowers. The rooms are spacious, our had small patio. Comfortable, big bed and spacious, clean and bright bathroom. Helpful staff speaking English. Maybe the only drawback is the breakfast - not to much choice... More

The Royal Palace is located in a large park/botanical garden in Guilin, providing serene landscaped surroundings. Add the friendly, English speaking staff, the traditional buildings and the clean rooms and you have a very nice place for a few days. We had arranged day trips in advance, but this could have been done at the hotel desk on arrival.Our room... More

It is one of the best place we stayed during our 6 stops' long trip in China. It is peaceful and beautiful.

David came to pick us up at the airport and exuded a genuine concern that we enjoy every minute of our 3 days in the area.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Palace. Away from the bustle of the city centre, the hotel is spotlessly clean in a botanical garden setting and the fishponds are a delight. We didn't dine in the restaurant but couldn't fault the breakfast which catered for both Asian and Western needs. Staff were always of assistance especially hailing taxis... More

We only stayed one night. It's a traditional Chinese hotel in a park, meaning traditional rooms (great bathrooms, actually) with Chinese furniture, spread out in many buildings. It was certainly comfortable and a pretty setting, in the middle of a large Guilin park. The issue I have with it was that our taxi driver had the address and found it... More
