We stopped 3 times at this hotel over a period of 10 days whilst we toured the region and used it as our base. Booking in was easy as accommodation was prearranged with Agoda. Not much English is spoken but we were able to get some assistance from the people at the tour desk. A cash deposit of 200 yuan is obligatory and refunded on departure. We had a river facing room which overlooked the road and the paved walkway beyond to the Li river. Couldn't see much because of the trees but a pleasant outlook regardless and worth paying that little bit extra. The rooms are large and well furnished. The bathroom is also large and fitted with everything you would need. The hotel is situated on a corner opposite the Sheraton and a large street-long shopping mall is a few steps around the corner. Plenty of shopping and any number of restaurants for meals. I wouldn't advise eating at the hotel as their idea of western food will send you racing to Kentucky Fried Carrion or McVomits. Unfortunately, restaurants open very late in the morning and we had to suffer in silence twice. The hotel stored our excess luggage for us whilst we went to other places around Guilin and this was appreciated. A word of warning - we were slugged 8 yuan for 2 teabags on our final departure. I didn't complain as we had cadged about 20 from the cleaners over our 3 stays. I have read that this can occur at other hotels, so I wasn't surprised. The lesson here is - if you like black tea or nescafe, bring your own supplies.
