Location is the strongest point, within Xicheng Pedestrian Street with its night market, 10~15min walk from the lakes, 2 bus-stops from the Railway Station (trains for the south). The hotel is dated and would welcome some refurbishment. However the rooms were clean, big enough, quality of the sleep was ok, wi-fi was good, although there was no refrigerator and no...

This quite smoky, very brothel-esque modern-ish hotel served our one night of sleep well, although there were quite a few novelty sexual hygiene products in liu of a minibar… Calling cards were strewn about in the halls, reminding me of a dirtier, mini-Vegas. A weird experience, but I guess that's what this formerly sleepy countryside town has become. Beware of...

First the positives - great location central and a nice night market on the pedestrian street outside. This was a budget hotel and I wasn't expecting the Ritz and to be fair the bathroom and sheets were clean. The negative - No fridge, no safe, very poor English spoken in Reception. The room smelled stale and the carpets were a...

This is a very good 3 star hotel. The size of the room and bed is very good. Plenty of shops and eateries around the hotel. It is located on the Pedestrian street and night market.

The location undoubtedly its the strength. Close to bus stops, and taxi rides to major attractions are cheap. At night, a market opens on the street just in front of the hotel which is nice but almost every other stand sells the same stuff, there are also quite a lot of places to eat around this area. Rooms were big,...

Staffs don't speak english, construction at the front of hotel makes the hotel very dusty, had to wait for a while for them to finish cleaning our room before checking in, hence we had to check in late. Only thing is it is conveniently located next to pedestrian street so it's quite easy to find necessities.

This hotel is located just besides the Xicheng Pedestrian street, Guilin. The room is clean and big. Room rates during off-peak season are cheap. The hotel does not have a restaurant . However , guests can easily find food within the vicinity. Hotel guests are mainly local tourists from all over china.
