Thanks god we stayed there only 1 night after Li River cruise. The hotel is very big, old and needs renovation. Our room (on the 6th floor; overlooking Li River with fantastic view from the balcony) was very outdated, with very old furniture, extremely hard-rock and uneven (like Yangshuo lanscape :-() beds, moreover, with dull and coming unstuck wallpapers and stained carpet. It was very cold (almost chilly) in the room (we visited Yangshuo in the first days of January). The bathroom was surprisingly very big, clean and modern (recently renovated). There was no safe deposit box in the room. There were persistent problems with door lock (we managed to lock our room properly only after three unsuccessfull attempts). Also there was awfull sickening smell of very cheap Chinese fastfood in corridors and elevator. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel due to very early check-out, but they provided us with cold breakfast box. It contained 1 orange, 2 eggs, 1 strange looking sandwidch, 1 small carton of milk, roll, cake, butter and jam, however, the most funny thing was that there were neither fork, knife nor even sticks to put them on bread. The hotel is located on East Str. in Chinatown quite close to Impression light show theatre (about 1.5 km), however, the road is not good for walking (dark, uneven and with crazy chaotic driving). It's better to take duk-duk (after show it's possible to get it for 10RMB for 2 persons; you have to negotiate price with a driver; initial price was 20 RMB). The distance to West Str. is a little bit less. During low season there is no problem to buy tickets for the show directly on site. Standard ticket price is 198RMB. Ticketing office at theatre main entrance is open from 15:00. The show itself starts at 19:45 (in winter), admission to the theatre - from 18:30. During cold season it's wise to take small blanket or at least towel to sit on it (chairs there are maid of plastic). The way to Guilin airport from the hotel took about 1h20min by minibus provided by our travel agency. But this was during low season and very early in the morning. Be sure to have extra time during high season (roads in this region are bad, there are a lot of motobikes, duk-duks, lorries and their style of driving is a little bit crazy)
