Everyone who steps into this hotel will somehow be attracted to the interior design (ancient + museum style). If not mistaken there are only in total, 37 rooms within this premise. We were welcomed by warm greetings of the lobby staff. Check in was smooth, the receptionists were attentive, polite and catered our needs to details. 7 of us stayed... More

We had a two night stay during our tour of Guilin and Yangshou at the white house. The staff where generally very helpful and if they couldn't speak english got someone who could. The rooms are large and well appointed, the toiletries are top class. The large bath is great if you want a spa, the shower gives plenty of... More

I can not recommend this hotel strongly enough. The rooms are beautiful spacious luxurious and equipped with every convenience. From the spa tub to the incredible views you will not be disappointed. The breakfast is a wonderful meld of Chinese and western. Visiting this hotel is a destination....the beauty and calm serenity overlooking the lake is unmatched. But by far... More

There is no breakfast buffet, just two set options: Chinese or Western. A bit disappointing for this price range. The outside temperature in Guilin during the winter months can get down to 5 degrees during the night. And there is no heating in the rooms. It is uncomfortably cold throughout the day and night. The hotel also works together with... More

The hotel is truly a piece of art. Luxury aside the setting/ambience makes me feel like I am reliving the past. Their website might seem like a tourist trap but rest assured it lives up and exceeds all expectations. Their pickup service was prompt (Drop them a email in advance) and checkin was swift meanwhile they sorted my suitcase out.... More

We were picked up from the airport and had an upgraded room when we arrived at 11 am in the morning. It was a fantastic introduction to China and set up well for... More

We stayed at The White House Hotel for three nights as part of a China Highlights Independent trip. The location is excellent on the west side of the Banyan Lake in central Guilin. This would have to be my favourite hotel in China mainly because of its unique setting and atmosphere unlike the larger chain type hotels. We loved everything... More

It is part of Ronghu hotel complex and thus a bit confusing and because rather new even taxi driver struggle. It is by far the most beautiful hotel and its position right at the canal/lake a dream. It takes 120 yuan to get here by taxi from the airport. Any other journey is a bit of a head ache. You... More

Liked everything in there, the view around the hotel & the comfortable room & the old fashion design & furnitures & the service. A little pricy, but never regretted to try . It's a great place to stay in this beautiful city.

If you are going to Guilin and think what a hotel to choose, first the most important thing to decide it's which type of hotel that you want to live. It's may be part of a modern building or an old town with low houses, tall trees and a very pleasant atmosphere. I chose this boutique hotel and have not... More
