room was comfy, but they could do with a refurb, there was some work going on so breakfast was on the top floor, which was ok, peoples apartments were very close and when you left everything was close, but you get a sense of how difrerently people live

This was the 4th hotel on our Wendy Wu tour of China, our flight was late and then we stopped for some food so by the time we arrived at the hotel it was late. No bar and no facilities open, it was 11 pm!. We did not go out at this time as we had no idea of location...

We stayed at this hotel only for one day as we were taking the boat to Yangshuo the next morning. This hotel is a smoking hotel and all the rooms smell of cigarette. We don't smoke so for us it was very unpleasant and not a very good experience. The only good thing about this hotel was the receptionist, he...

This was our fourth hotel on our tour of China and by far the worst so far. The reception area was, as usual, a vast marble space - the 'face' of the hotel. However, the rooms told a different story. Ours smelt musty, the carpet was stained, the shower curtain had been left closed when wet, so had the usual...

A nice hotel, good breakfast, tv, kettle, weightscale, all is there. Good hot shower.And most of all soft beds (as soft as you can get in china );) But the location is perfect. 10 min only from Fubo Hill and around the corner is the large night market, Pedestrian street, supermarkets, Mc.Donalds, etc.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel in April 2016 as part of an organised trip. This hotel is really well located next to the very busy main road and overlooking the Lijang river. You can do a lot of things by foot as the hotel is just 5 minutes from Zhengjang street, a very busy pedestrian road with lots...

Breakfast is very good, location good, nice rooms. The room wifi is amazingly fast. This hotel is very near to shopping places. Shopping is comparatively cheap. Cautionary advice for night walk. At least 2 days visit recommended.

We had a short stay at the Universal Hotel on our trip around China. We spent little time in the hotel because of our busy schedule but once again we received quality support from the duty staff ,throughout the facility. Breakfast was good and rooms were comfortable and clean. Hotel was well located for our busy programme of tours and...

I've stayed here many times over the years. I love this hotel for the excellent location right next to the Li River and a very short walk from Guilin's night market and pedestrian street. The rooms are fine, not luxury but they will do for a few nights. The breakfast is also good, although it can get a bit crowded...
