“Nice view but that is all”
Reviewed September 19, 2009

The view form the top floor room was delightful but this is an average tourist hotel with tired breakfast ie corn flakes were stale. Staff were more interested in getting a room key deposit than in helping with tours etc

There is little chance of a comfortable night at the Fubo hotel as the rooms and floors are grimey and the windows do not open so all you have is a noisy and dirty air conditioning system. At breakfast they have a buffet of all kinds of things but everything tastes the same or leaves an aftertaste. At breakfast the waitstaff also liked to amuse itself by staring and laughing at foreigners too - I know that can happen in China on the street but I'd expect more professionalism from hotel staff...

Location is great. Nice view of Li River if you get the upper level rooms facing the river. Quiet but walking distance to the hustle and bustle of city center. A tad bit overpriced though considering Guilin is a city with lots of hotels.
However I had a check out experience that puts everything into the dumps. A hand towel went missing and i was charged for it. Even though it was just 20 yuan I felt cheated as I did not take it. Its a towel that has been used by thousands and 20 yuan would have bought me a dozen in China. The management should have used some common sense instead of ruining a customer experience. And the front desk did not even issue a receipt so I smell rat here.

The Fubo wasn't anything great. The staff didn't speak English very well and the lobby smelled horrendous. It smelled like some musty old basement that's just been opened for the first time in 10 years. The rooms were okay; small and serviceable. The location was okay - it's right on the riverfront and only a short bike ride away from some of Guilin's sights. I recommend this hotel to those who don't care about amenities and only want a place to crash after a long-day of sightseeing. For that person, this hotel is more than fine. To anyone who wants something more, look elsewhere.

  • Liked — You can rent bikes at the front desk for cheap
  • Disliked — Smelled really bad

the bad: the hotel was a little dirty and also very far from things. If I was ever to head to guilin again, i'd get a hotel closer to the action. we found ourselves always walking far in the morning and night to get everywhere like the bus station, restaurants, breakfast, grocery store, etc. there was a cigarette butt by one of the beds and the carpet could have used a good washing. the staff didn't speak english very well. the bikes that we rented weren't very good either.

the good: the place was inexpensive. cheap internet.

overall, i would definitely find a different hotel if you are looking to stay in guilin.

We only stayed here one night and it was a basic, clean room with great views of the river and people doing morning dancing and tai chi. (check on the specific rooms which face the river) There were mostly westerners at this hotel so it was definitely a tourist hotel. The breakfast buffet was basic and only ok, nothing special about it. I would stay here only if you need a place to sleep, not a place to hang out in.
