In a city as big as Guilin this hotel and location has as lot to offer. Food, including the smorgasbord, was really nice, fresh, with a vast choice for all tastes. Food could be ordered elsewhere if needed eg coffee bar. Location right on the lake: walk out the back and stroll around the gorgeous lake at all hours, at... More

The highlight of the hotel is one of a president of China stayed there. They don't say which one but my guess will be that it was about 30 or 40 years ago. Since then the main part of the hotel hasn't been renovated. It's old. Even for Chinese standard that's definitely not a four star. Changed room twice and... More

My experience at the Ronghu Hotel, Guilin is different to recent reviewers. The lobby area is a nice enviroment and, depsite what others have said, there was always someone who spoke decent English at reception and I had no problems. Our room was on the 4th floor of the main building and was a decent size and clean. Though smoking... More

Hotellin huoneet olivat kehnot, vaihdoimme huonetta 2 kertaa, ennen kuin löyty sen tasoinen huone, jossa voi yöpyä 3 yötä. Huoneissa oli tunkkainen haju- hometta ? kahdessa ensimmäisessä huoneessa oli verhoissa hometta, ikkunat olivat sisäpuolelta vetiset, tapetit olivat kuprulla monesta kohtaa ja katossa oli tummia läikkiä- home/kosteusvaurioita ? en todellakaan suosittle henkilöille, joilla on vähäistäkin allergiaa !!

We booked this hotel fairly last minute, and there was very little available in Guilin. This was the only mid-priced hotel available for internet booking. We booked through the travelchinaguide.com website, as this hotel wasn't available anywhere else. The 1st problem we had was with the booking, which isn't instantaneous, and we received an e-mail the next day to say... More

Arrived at approx 2am due to flight delays. Still had to pay full price. This was a very luxurious hotel with very comfortable king size bed – not hard like most beds in China. Free internet with computer in the room. Overlooked the river. Magnificent. Only stayed for the one night as the price was outside our budget. However the... More
