Considering prices of other hotels within the same neighborhood sandwiched by two most tourist attraction lakes, and near to vivid night scene, I think this hotel is a gift to traveler.
Rooms are nicely decorated and clean. I think it was renovated recently. Though one of the rooms(at least mine, with two king-size beds) may face the place where the construction is, I can bear this small(really small) noise with the price and quality of the rooms.
There are bars where you can drink cheap and OK Chinese tea and coffee, very good secluded place especially when you want to avoid nightmarish(sometimes pleasant though...) Guilin's night scene. Puer and Longjing tea's price is very competitive.
There are only three rooms, so it is easy to be filled up. You may be guided to other affiliated hotel called "Riverside Inn" which I've never experienced but not that good based on reviews.
So if you can't book here, I would recommend go for Wada or other options.
