Shame we only stayed one night, best room so far on our tour. Overlooked the river and the bridge. Close to the old town, mostly pedestrianised, with lots of places to eat. Breakfast was pretty good. Only negative thing was having to reset the ac when coming back to the room as it seemed to lose the temp and on... More

Visited during month long trip to China. Not the best it worse hotel we stayed in. Only one night which was probably for the best. Breakfast for westerners was very poor. Supplied with a lovely lunch box for a cruise on the river li but this was supplied by the West Bank cafe.

This hotel has a perfect location for a visit to Guilin, close to the river and the old town centre where all the restaurants are. The rooms are good and clean and every thing is at walking distance. Make sure you stroll along the riverbank in the evening, that's where it's all happening.

room was comfy, but they could do with a refurb, there was some work going on so breakfast was on the top floor, which was ok, peoples apartments were very close and when you left everything was close, but you get a sense of how difrerently people live

We stayed at this hotel only for one day as we were taking the boat to Yangshuo the next morning. This hotel is a smoking hotel and all the rooms smell of cigarette. We don't smoke so for us it was very unpleasant and not a very good experience. The only good thing about this hotel was the receptionist, he... More

This was our fourth hotel on our tour of China and by far the worst so far. The reception area was, as usual, a vast marble space - the 'face' of the hotel. However, the rooms told a different story. Ours smelt musty, the carpet was stained, the shower curtain had been left closed when wet, so had the usual... More

A nice hotel, good breakfast, tv, kettle, weightscale, all is there. Good hot shower.And most of all soft beds (as soft as you can get in china );) But the location is perfect. 10 min only from Fubo Hill and around the corner is the large night market, Pedestrian street, supermarkets, Mc.Donalds, etc.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel in April 2016 as part of an organised trip. This hotel is really well located next to the very busy main road and overlooking the Lijang river. You can do a lot of things by foot as the hotel is just 5 minutes from Zhengjang street, a very busy pedestrian road with lots... More
