Our family of four stayed at this gorgeous hotel while on a group heritage tour. We were given a huge, lavishly decorated suite, but it lacked privacy. The space was divided into "rooms" through the use of small pillars, and there were no walls between the master bedroom, master bath, and second bedroom. The toilets were in enclosed rooms, but the tub is in the middle of the room and the shower had no door or curtain. (We solved this problem by stringing a sheet over the shower opening as a curtain and told everyone "don't look" when we got in/out.) Our room overlooked the beautiful karst mountains, but it was quite a ways from town. If I went again I would prefer being in a hotel within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We did enjoy the in-hotel shop that sold snacks, souvenirs, clothing, and various nicer souvenirs/art.

Room Tip: Bring clothesline and/or duct tape to make a makeshift shower curtain if room doesn't have one

The Grand Bravo is a palatial 5 star hotel in Guilin. The lobby is a huge expanse of tall marble columns and crystal chandeliers. There is a lobby bar fitted with settees that look like thrones for a princess. The rooms are elaborately decorated in European style with chandeliers, silk bedclothes and a day bed. The carpets are in a beautiful plum blossom pattern. Bathrooms feature a huge footed bathtub and separate shower. A mind boggling assortment of Asian and Western food is served at the breakfast buffet. There are gorgeous indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa and a fitness center. This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever visited.

The hotel is very luxurious, lots of marble and chandeliers etc. Not much charm. The rooms were very big and clean, as were the beds. The view from the room was fantastic. Thw outdoor pool was very big . Breakfast buffet had a lot to chose from, both chinese and western. Only problem was smell of smoke in all the public areas, even in the room.

Too far out of the city ... Restaurants are huge impersonal buffet or tiny Japanese. Everyone friendly but rooms nothing special. Lobby is impressive but you don't pick a hotel for a lobby. Perhaps a better concierge service would help get you in and out of the city ...

We arrived at this hotel yesterday and the decor is definitely grand, but that's about it. The staff don't speak English, and are very slow on service.

We ate at there Japanese restaurant and there idea of sushi is mayonnaise and lettuce, nothing else. They put spam or fake ham in their California rolls, so if you're vegetarian don't order that.

If you want coffee don't go to their cafe in the lobby because their staff will see you come in but just continue filling out forms, or looking busy until you go to them.

Their location is outside from anything so you have to catch a taxi if you want to go anywhere. If I could do this again, I'd choose to stay in Yangshuo, that's a better town.
