This is the Guilin Aviation Hotel, no longer the CAAC Hotel for quite some time now. Location is very convenient if you're using the airport bus, since it stops right at the hotel. Of course, it departs from here as well, and there's a waiting hall adjacent to the hotel. Other than that, there's not much in the immediate vicinity. If you don't mind walking, then it's not too bad--about 10 minutes to White Elephant, 15-20 minutes to downtown shopping area.
The rooms aren't big, but big enough. You can tell they really tried to make it contemporary and maybe even funky, with glass panels above the bed and IKEA-like fittings. Bed is low and medium-firm. Bathroom is on the small side with shower, no tub.
There are several other inexpensive, 2/3-star hotels on the same block, but this is the best of them. At only about $30/night, this one's an excellent deal.More
