We had a wonderful stay, mainly due to the host Jason and his family. This place had the best customer service we've experienced at a hotel in China by a long way. A "must stay" place if you are visiting Longji.
Room: we had the panoramic room on 3rd floor and the view was fantastic, the room matches the pictures on the website (there's no airbrushing or "tricky" angles etc). The room was clean and did not have any "funny" smells. The bathroom is basic but clean and plenty of hot water, good water pressure. We did not use the air conditioner. There's a set top box similar to Apple TV in room and if you can read mandarin to operate it there's English TV shows and movies on demand for free, wifi was free in room and fast.
Restaurant: we had breakfast and 2 dinner, food was of good quality, quantity and flavoursome. The view from the restaurant balcony is the same as from our room.
Location: just before the steps leading up to Ping'An village so it's not very far from the car park, very quite. We walked to the viewing platform on the first day but gave up due to both the mist blooming the views and exhaustion. On the second day we walked to DazHai and the views were wonderful. Though sitting in the room looking out the windows is just as wonderful.
Services: Jason booked a shuttle bus for us from Guilin to the car park saving us hundreds of RMB in taxi fare, one family member came to pick us up from the bus and took us to the hotel ( no one else from our bus was meet by their hotel), Jason can also book taxi transfers. We've found that with Jason's help you can do this trip independently from Guilin without any Mandarin language skills.
