“Excellent Location and Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

5 star for the location. If you like shopping , eating , walking , parks , sight seeing then this i the best economy hotel. Located at Binjiang Road beside Zhengyang walking street, Shangshui street (food street)which opened in 2012, elephant hill park, just opposite Sheraton Guilin Hotel,

For Indian traveller there is a INDIAN VEG / NON-VEG restaurant -KALI MIRCH, which is just 2 mins walking distance from Eva Inn/ Sheraton.

I stayed for 4 nights. Very big rooms [2 double bed], neat / clean. Bathroom has a bathtub with good hot water 24 hrs, all the toiletries available free. Neat and clean bathroom.

Comfortable stay , comfortable sleep. Not noisy.

Excellent location for shopping , eating , walking , parks etc.

Free wifi - every where in the hotel.

Non English speaking staff.......though you may get around someone to help you. It is not a big issue .Or can you use translate app in your mobile phone which can make things easier for you.

We stayed in Guilin for one night before going down to Yangshuo for a week. The location of the hotel was excellent - right across the street from the river and only 5 minutes from where you catch the boat for the evening tour of the four lakes. Also just around the corner from the pedestrian street, which has lots of restaurants. We had a superior river view room, which was comfortable and clean. It also had a spacious terrace but in July it's too hot to even contemplate sitting out there. Perhaps in other times of the year. No restaurant on the premises as far as we could tell - nobody spoke a word of English, not even the people at the tour desk. I had originally contacted the hotel on a number of occasions to see if they could arrange for airport pickup and tickets for the Li River cruise down to Yangshuo, but never heard back from them. Must have been because no one speaks English. We ended up arranging that through our Yangshuo hotel, and we had breakfast in the Sheraton across the street. Next door there is a GREAT massage place that does a tremendous foot massage for 120 RMB! Open late. Definitely recommend that! So, I would recommend the Eva Inn for a brief stay because of its location and price.

Room Tip: No swimming pool and fitness center.

Maybe I should called the hotel as "partner hotel". Many friends or customers lived Eva Inn. It is a good choose as a economy hotel. Located at Binjiang Road beside Zhengyang walking street, Shangshui street (food street)which opened in 2012, elephant hill park.
Corridor is too narrow, walking in the corridor made me uncomfortable. The rooms are also small.
Generally speaking, It's a good economy hotel.

I was really excited when I booked this hotel because they indicated that they offered a free transfer from the airport. I emailed them to confirm this was the case and they were quick to respond and indicated they would be there, they just needed my flight info. I sent the flight info and confirmed I would have a ride when I arrived.

Guilin airport is not that big, there is one main area where everyone exits and where all of the drivers were holding their signs. No one was there for me. Instead of catching the bus into town, I waited it out thinking they might just be late. No one showed and I was forced to wait for over an hour because the bus to town only departs after each arriving plane. I could have overpaid for a taxi or risked taking a ride from one of the very sketch locals who offered cheap rides but neither of those were good options. I took the shuttle bus to town and found my way to the hotel in the rain. I was lucky that I had planned a little in advance to explore the city, so I had some idea where I was as the shuttle bus just drops off in one somewhat central location, but still fairly far from the Eva Inn.

The front desk clearly had no idea that a driver had not picked me up and said I must have missed him. Once you are in Guilin you'll know it would be close to impossible to "miss" a driver. Even if the hotel did dispatch a driver, and even if I did miss him, the hotel would have known as the driver would have notified them that I no showed.

The property earns slightly better than the lowest rating because the location is good and the room was nice enough. For the price, I was pleased with the accommodations. However, the staff has minimal competency in English - which is fine, I do not naively expect everyone to speak English. But if you need any help getting around Guilin or even relatively simple transfers to transportation hubs do not count on the hotel being able to help in English.

Finally, while this property is right on the river and I paid extra for a river view room there is no view. The trees are way too dense to see more than a slight glimpse of the river bank. It is pleasant, but don't expect sweeping vistas of Guilin's natural beauty.

We travelled to China a few years ago and one of our destinations was Guilin. We stayed in this hotel in May 2010. Location is quite good. It is by the river and there were many shops around the area. The room was huge and tidy but the beds were a little hard. Breakfast was okay. Staffs were friendly. It was a lovely hotel. It's worth the time and money to spend a few days here.

This hotel has seen better days. The carpets are moldy, the halls need painting, the restaurant isn't really prepared to serve to non-tour groups.

But that said, it has a great location along the river, and the rooms are clean (if dated) and quiet. Add to that a very reasonable price, and I'd stay there again -- but only if I needed a place to sleep before leaving early the next morning on the Li River Cruise.

The hotel is good for sleeping, but not good on aesthetics, atmosphere, or customer service. But at a bargain price with a good location, it's good enough to be a great deal if you're looking for a safe place to sleep with no frills.

BTW, it can be really hard to figure out which URL is really for the hotel - one of the two below is for the hotel directly, and one for a booking service not associated directly with the hotel. Can you tell which is which? I couldn't from the US -- only figured it out when I was in China:

eng.evainn.com
www.evainnguilin.com

Without strong copyright protections, many web sites and phone numbers are for booking agents who get a cut, and not for the actual hotel, attraction etc. So Caveat Emptor.

The pros.
Located by the river and about a 20min walk from the train station
Massive room
Huge bed_possibly two doubles pushed together.
Hot water, comfortble room temp
The staff were ok. Pleasant, quiet, better english than my mandarin, just lacked a smile or welcome.
Good value

The cons
It offers some questionable extras such as a 'lady of the evening massage'
Rooms available by the hour and bedside literature contains more info on stds than it does on anything else-might be a brothel.
Beds are as hard as bricks.

Wouldnt recommend to a friend
