We enjoyed three nights in this charming little Inn. Our cosy room, one of three above the restaurant/bar, was clean and modern with wood floors and a small sitting area. Wifi reception was good and there is a computer for use in lobby. It is staffed by university students who are friendly, speak good English and are anxious to please. Tour booking is a cinch and they seem to offer significantly lower prices than online booking sites.
The location is unbeatable. A short walk to pedestrian shops and restaurants. Across the road is the lake with the twin pagodas which is beautiful, especially lit up at night.
There is music from nearby buskers at night but the activity ends at a decent time and did not interfere with our sleep. Magical flute melodies accompany tai chi practice the mornings were lovely to awaken to. All in all, great value for this little treasure in Guilin !
