From Dhaka, Bangladesh to LA, USA - we broke journey at Guangzhou. After two days at Guangzhou, we took the fast train to Guilin which is primarily a tourist city and we stayed at the "best" room, nay suite of this hotel - Room 768 on the top floor with the mind blowing view of the River Li with the...

On a Wendy Wu tour. Beds softer than others, fridge does not work, 2 keys handed out but only one worked,"why you want both keys to work?". A/C cant change again. Breakfast really average, at least toaster was quick but make sure you have your voucher for the correct day. Tea is just lightly flavoured water. Bring your own tea...

A very sad hotel in desparate need of total refurbishment, greasy bed heads and badly cracked ceilings were just part of it! Breakfat was extremely poor and very hit or miss in terms of what was available. THe airconditioning wasn't working properly and we roasted.We spent a good 10 minutes going through cupbords trying to locate basics like cereals. The...

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of Wendy Wu Wonders of China tour. This hotel was the worst that we stayed in on our tour. The first night we were in bedrooms at the front and even though they are double glazed, the traffic noise was horrendous. In both rooms, wallpaper was peeling off the walls, carpet was...

Basic hotel but more than adequate for a few nights. The room was clean and nice and the breakfast had a good basic buffet breakfast catering to asian and western tastes. A bit of a walk from the centre of the town but they had a complimentary shuttle bus so wasn't a problem getting to the main area.

Stayed here for two nights. Not bad with the price. Room is clean and well equipped. Beds are quite comfy. The hotel is quite central located in Guilin with 5mins walk to Dongxi Xiang district and if you walk along the riverabank, it takes 10mins to the Mont elephant.

right on the river front by the bridge restaurant is on the first floor and serves authentic, not western, Chinese food the bedroom looked out of the back of the hotel so no views but this made it quieter than being over looking the main street

Guilin is very beautiful and one stays outdoors as much as possible. Do try the Osmanthus flower wine. But the stay at this hotel wasn't nice I was there only a couple of nights, so maybe got dumped into the lousier rooms. The room was smallish, not lighted well enough since only shaded lamps were there, no ceiling lights. The...

This hotel comprises of seven stories. It is located within Guilin City Centre. In other words, it is within less than five minutes walk away from the Old Town. However, don't get excited because it has been commercialised with kitsch old looking buildings from the outset but having H&M as a tenant. You get the idea. Ancient items are far...
