“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We stayed at the Star-wish for one night at the Chinese Moon Festival. The time is quiet busy.
So, some people got up at 4am to walk to a scenic spot. Because the whole house is build up from Wood this was noisy. There are several cocks around. You can hear them at nighttime.
The staff is very nice. We had wonderful Ladies carrying our luggage. (don´t bring too much).
Western breakfast is provided. It is a beautiful place to spend a night or two. Liked it very much.
Thank you Star-wish Team.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view at the top floor.

The area is stunning and worth a stay of at least two nights. You can do a day trip from Guilin, but then you miss too much. Spend some time on a hike in the hills. Sit on the terrace at sunset. Or after sunrise. Or both.
The place is not perfect. How could it be, considering the steep and narrow little streets, which are just footpaths, where every single item has to be carried up by people or beasts of burden?
The word resort is misleading, it is a charming guest house run by nice people, none of which seems to be a professional in the business.
We loved our stay there.

We booked a room with a balcony but did not get one. The room was tidy, bathroom quaint and typically Asian, no fridge. (there was a space for one and a list itemising the mini bar contents) The views are unbelievable. On our first night we waited 30 minutes for our order to be taken and another 30 minutes for our meal. The white cat wanted to share others meals. On the second night we asked for a menu straight away, still waited 30 minutes for service. After another 30 minutes I asked about our order and was advised that they had run out of rice (rice was only a small part of the order), no alternatives were offered, no apologies. Our downfall is we do not speak Chinese. We ate elsewhere and we will never go back.

As others have suggested, the Star-wish is more of a rustic, quaint, cottage style hotel than resort. Being up in the mountains, however, it was a perfect fit! Our group of 28 loved our stay there. Most of the rooms offered a balcony overseeing the terraced rice paddies and village. The natural wood and stone created a mountain side ambiance throughout the hotel. We had breakfast and a dinner at the Star-wish and enjoyed both. Their staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, although only a few spoke any English. Prices for water and beer fluctuated depending on who served you. All in all it was a terrific experience and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when in Lonji.

The people running the hotel were very nice and the location was great. Our room had some construction work in front of the windows that obfuscated the view a little bit but what we could see was beautiful.
The room was very small, once we got a (small) third bed in there we didn't have any room left to move around. The bathoom was even smaller, with the toilets almost right under the shower. The sink had a little leak and we found a cockroach (he was harmless though and stopped running around when we asked - with a shoe).
We came for breakfast a little late (somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30) and had some scrambled eggs and toasts with tea and coffee (the coffee was almost cold though).
We had a great sleep, the beds were comfortable (although the extra one was a little squeaky) and the air conditioning was rather silent.
Overall a good night of sleep but the hotel might be overselling itself a little.

The Star-wish, is not a resort, it is a guest house. After a long walk up a steep path it is a relief to get to your room, pay someone to carry your bag, it is well worth it! The guest house is charming and traditional, our room was nice, but the bathroom was tiny and when we used the shower water leaked into the bedroom. Sadly the amazing view of the tiered rice fields was somewhat marred by the construction work going on opposite the Star-wish. None the less this place is not to be missed, the scenery is spectacular. Make sure you take the walk through the rice fields.

Breakfast here was a disappointment, no fruit or yogurt, just steamed rolls and pancakes. Very bland and we had to fill up on food we had brought with us.

Stayed there for 2 nights with kids, the place is great and full of lovely people to take care of you! Don't look further for a good restaurant around, the food at star wish is fantastic! Very close to view point 2 and old zhuang village.
