Beautiful setting in the middle of a city!
First, you are in China, so this is not too big of a deal, but this hotel's breakfast caters almost entirely to an Asian style with few western options. They do have a noodle bar and fresh fruit, but not much of European or North American offerings . . . so when in Rome!
This hotel is located in the beautiful Guilin Botanic Gardens (think a Central Park, but in China). There is a golf cart available 24hrs. to pick you up and take you to the park entrance. Though you are smack in the middle of a million person Chinese city, you would never know it at the property. The grounds are fantastic, the rooms clean and the staff were very helpful. We had a regular room which was extremely clean and had a fantastic patio backing up to the Koi pond. The family suite was a one bedroom apartment with 1 and a half baths. The bathrooms were spotless, new and well done. The condition of the walls, lock on the sliding door and some of the carpet needed a deep clean or to be replaced however.
Not many drivers knew the hotel location
Fish pond, setting
Beautiful, quiet location. Disappointing dining room
The dining room. Poor selection of vegetarian dishes and expensive. No wine available by the glass.
I'm vegetarian so I have no idea about about the non-vegetarian dishes on offer. The dining room was generally a disappointing experience
Nice and well-equipped hotel.
Some guests in the breakfast restaurant were extremely loud and selfish. And some wholegrain or wheat bread would have been nice. Nightly boat trip isn't worth the money.
Nice and quiet hotel. Location is a bit difficult to find and far from the main road, but the golf cart-shuttle to and from the entrance of the park works fine.
Great stay in oasis of green
Could have done with a gin and tonic! 😃
Room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. In the fabulous setting of the botanical gardens. Staff incredibly helpful. Really enjoyed staying here.
Relaxing garden oasis.
Slightly musty due to general dampness in Guilin. Airport travel in and out is tough due to weather. I
Helpful staff. Lovely spot. Comfy. Great value. A little off the beaten path but worth it.
Guilin - a wonderful location
Connection to city center
Nice and quiet location attentive staff
Room is really comfy with a nice view, stuff really helpful and friendly, breakfast good (dumplings really yummy) hotel in amazing garden you can go for a walk and chill without going far. Around hotel a lot shoppings and places to eat. Would come back again for sure!
The hotel is located in a very nice park, far from any road. The hotel comprises many buildings, each of them being really beautiful and separated with pools with many fishes. In the middle is a very pretty tea house. It is charming and very peaceful. The swimming pool is just perfect: large enough to enjoy a little swimming but small enough to fit the style of the hotel. The restaurant is very good (we do recommend the fried shrimps) and the breakfast offers many options. Finally the staff has been very helpful, from driving us immediately, anytime through the garden with an electric car, to organizing a boat trip on the Li river. Number one hotel we have ever been in, according to my kids!
A Charming Oasis of Calm
The Dining Room serves traditional Chinese food that is not necessarily the same as we are used to in Europe. It is not bad food but not always to a European taste. However, it is freshly cooked from fresh ingredients and plentiful. There are Chinese traditional, Continental and American options for breakfast.
This hotel is set in a beautiful gated park, with no road traffic allowed, but the hotel's electric golf buggy will transport you to Reception . The architecture of the hotel is traditional Chinese but the rooms are modern and spotlessly clean. Front desk staff speak good English but all the staff were friendly and eager to make our stay pleasant. We booked our excursions at the front desk. Taxis were easily available at the gates of the park and the No10 bus, which served the main part of town, had its terminus just 100 metres away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. One could quite easily spend half a day wandering around the park watching all the activities taking place there.
