Like just about everyone I came to Guilin for the Li River cruise. I booked the Eva Inn online without having had the chance to read reviews but under the circumstances it was a good pick. Large, tidy rooms in a fairly central area of Guilin, the hotel also had a tour desk that charged very reasonable prices to book the Li River cruise (about 50 Yuan cheaper than the tourist office around the corner.
As for the cons, obviously the staff spoke no English at all and, although this isn't really the fault of the hotel, you WILL have locals attempt to scam you and the Eva Inn's proximity to the Sheraton (probably the most upmarket hotel in town) means that the scammers seem to concentrate on the area.
