Stayed here for 2 separate nights...room was spacious...though simple but very comfortable and was very clean. Kettle, 2 cups, hair dryer and soap were provided....a toiletries holder would be a good addition in the shower room for guests to place their personal toiletries. Strategically located nearby the Riyue Shuangta Cultural Park; it's just located by the side of the lakes....

This hotel only has three rooms but ours was nicely decorated and furnished and very clean. The hotel is well located in the centre of Guilin with lots of shops, restaurants and things to see near by. The owner Jack is very helpful and speak good English and he even keeps a very reasonably priced pint of draft San Miguel.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early January, and we really enjoyed our stay!

This is really a gem in Guilin. It is a very small establishment run by Jack. There is only 3 rooms in the inn. The hotel is by the lakeside of Guilin where the famous tourist site is located. The windows is double glazed thus insulated the noise from outside. However noise insulation inside is minimal – you can hear...

This inn offers a very personalised and warm service from Jack the proprietor himself. Jack has great knowledge on the city, which is helpful to our great stay. The inn is located right next to the city square, the Shanhu lake where the two pagodas are. Strategic location, clean and new rooms.

The inn was placed in a great location in walking distance to lake, lovely restaurants and shops. Jack the owner was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel at home by letting us use his kitchen facilities, letting us borrow his umbrella and jackets, and buying us food to cook for breakfast
