Clean, good sized simple rooms. great location - outside of town is much better, and great service. Bike hire is good. very close to the main caves and the bamboo raft landing. Rooftop dining is a great way to see sunset. Food is simple but good quality and fast. They are building an extra building at the back so part... More

Pretty hotel in a rustic style, set in some amazingly beautiful countryside. The rooms are clean and charming, the view fantastic and the food some of the best in China- truly they produced Chinese and Western food to the same wonderful level. But as ever, what makes a holiday great, is the service you get and here at the Pheonix... More

My best friend and I stayed 3 nights at the Phoenix Pagoda and it was absolutely wonderful! Upon request the hotel staff organized a car to pick us up at the airport in Guilin for our late night arrival from Shanghai. Even though it was the middle of the night when we arrived we were greeted warmly by Jerry, one... More

Stayed for three nights in March at the end of three weeks in China - this was definitely the high point. Beautiful setting, comfortable room, great food, and very hospitable hosts. Felt like staying with friends. A great place to relax.

Our four night three day stay was splendid . Tucked in amongst the mountains this place is a real retreat. Situated 6 km from town centre this retreat has several small villages in the near vicinity all within walking distance. Our room was possibly the smallest of all rooms was still very comfortable for the two of us. Our room... More

We had a pleasant stay at Fonglou during last week of April. My finance and I stayed there for 5 days 4 nights. We wanted more privacy so Lily arranged a top floor room for us with a discreet balcony. We really appreciated! For the activities, Lily took good care of arranging everything for us, car pick-up, show tickets, secret... More

My husband and I spent an entire week here during the Chinese new year which is the low season. The place is welcoming, warm, relaxed and very comfortable. The service is excellent in the sense that everything needs to be done are done quietly and there's no intruding, no anyone in your face at any point. The kitchen is fantastic.... More

We spent 5 days and 4 nights at the PP. It was a quiet relaxing place to stay. If you want peace and tranquility, this is a place to stay. The views are impeccable - hiking is right outside your door. Leisurely meals slowed our pace. If you want to be in the center of activity, this is not he... More

The hotel is well located near the country side attractions. We rented bicycles for several hours of touring the area, following the map and good explanations Lillian gave us. The room is clean, bed was big and comfortable, quite surrounding. Breakfast was tasty – nice variety of things. The service was very good – Lillian and Ann speak very good... More
