I visited Guilin with my two adult sons. Travelled to the hotel from the airport via taxi. Arrived in the early hours & were delivered safely. A good thing that we went by taxi. Very comfortable hotel. We were there off-season. Service very good. Lots of locals morning walking / exercising in the huge hotel grounds. Buggy access from the...

After an exciting new year in China, I am back again to write my review for my fellow travellers heading down to China. Guilin is a paradise in itself. Sometimes city life can make you feel ,dull worn out and lifeless. Such was the experience until we reached this hotel. Although situated inside the botanical garden. The royal palace is...

We stayed at this hotel twice, love their service, the view of the room and the outdoor swimming pool is just second to none. Feed the golden fish in the patio is a must thing to do, lol. Would love to go back again soon.

We arrived very late at night due to our flight delay but the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The traditional Chinese style hotel is in a lovely park where a lot of local people come to do Thai Chi, Meditations, Yoga, Dance. The following morning I joined a small Thai Chi group of older folks who were exceptionally friendly...

Neat, clean hotel. Friendly personel. Breakfast was good. I would say a good three or four star hotel if I use the European rating system. I would come here again. Not cheap, I think but it is up to Eiropeam standards.

The name of this place is the Guilin Yi. (Yi is pronounced as in YEE HAA, but is a 4th tone, which means that you say it as an Order, as if you were telling someone "Hey!" Or, if you are a Monty Python fan, as in the Knights who say "NI" but instead say the rhyming word "YI") As...

The hotel is in the middle of a park and is approach by their golf-buggy style transport from the park gate. Reception is friendly - they have good English - and in rather grand hall. We were back and forth, so that we had 3 different rooms. All were large, comfortable and quiet in different pavilion-style buildings. Excellent bathroom. There...

This hotel is located in the middle of the city's botanical gardens/park where people meet and exercise etc. It is a beautiful tranquil park with walking paths and a koi pond etc. If we had more time, we would have walked and explored a bit more. The driver dropped us off at the park gate and you ride a golf...

The hotel is in the middle of a park so it is very picturesque and quite. The local residents use the park for socializing, walking, dancing and exercise or just playing cards with friends. You can be driven to and from the park entrance to the hotel in a golf cart but I recommend walking at least once to understand...

Hotel is in a fabulous setting, really serene. We stayed here as we day tripped a lot out of Guilin so weren't too worried about it being away from the centre. It is very easy to get a taxi/pedicab in and you can walk it, about 20 min. The hotel is beautiful, we used the pool on return from day...
