Booked this hotel through an agent as a pre-night for the boat tour, so as it was incl. in a package, we cannot rate its value for money. But we had a good stay there, rooms were clean incl. river view and the location is quite nice just across from the river and close to the pedestrian street. Breakfast was...

Booked a river view room which is the only reason to go to this hotel. A river view at a very reasonable cost. And a really nice view it is, especially at night. You could have a similar view at the Sheraton or the Lijiang Waterfall hotels for double or triple the price. For what we paid I’d opt for...

This hotel was booked by our travelagent for one night. We were on our way to Yangshou (by boat) and needed one night in Guilin. On the boat we saw much more people who stayed in the hotel.

Hotel is listed as having free broadband access. In reality non-existent. Used a nearby "Italian" cafe which produced amazing food and free broadband. Hotel is rather tired and tried to hike price which had been reserved through Expedia.

If you are booking here in the spring/summer I would avoid this hotel unless you are planning a late check-in or really enjoy Saunas. Our first rooms AC was actually...

We booked two rooms on the 6th floor with views of the river and the mountains beyond. The view was truly wonderful - except for the ugly billboards that are on either side of the bridge - but the hotel can't do too much about that.... (do they even have "planning and zoning" in China?) The location was wonderful with...
