This is really an excellent hotel. The rooms are excellent and the facilities also. We ate well in the hotel and the staff were very good, generally with good knowledge of English and when they had difficulty understanding they immediately found someone who did understand. My major criticism concerns the DCC (dynamic currency conversion) scam operated by the checkout clerk,...

We had a wonderful stay with a lot of personal attention which is very rare indeed! Excellent hotel and great food! Feb can be wet and cold so may not be the best season for a visit but the city has many hidden treasures and deserves the name of the most beautiful city in China!

The overall services are very good. Especially the restaurants and their staffs are very friendly and helpful. I liked so much the live music on the piano in the lobby... congratulations for that, it was relaxing after our cruise tour.

HORRIBLE HOTEL, it was our first stay in a Shangri-La Hotels, and probably the last one... The hotel is located next to the slams (nothing similar to the pictures), in a very poor location, not very professional staff and a 3 star hotel interior design. All of it for the price of a 5 star hotel. Our room suppose to...

We stayed for three nights in this hotel before CNY. It was a great experience from the moment we got picked up from the airport to the moment we departed. I can definitely recommend to stay at the horizon club. The breakfast there is great, service impeccable, and the evening cocktail with snacks worth to stop by. If time allows...

We stayed one night in this big, sprawling hotel. For the short time we were there, the service was good, but we didn't test them very sharply. Our bathroom seemed almost as big as our sleeping room, with a big shower and a separate soaking tub. The lobby is probably 75 meters long with crystal chandeliers hanging from ceilings a...

We went to Guilin for a friends birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shangri-La. The staff were so friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The riverside room was a good size, nicely laid out and was very comfortable and clean. The horizon club was good and once again the staff were...

The positives: This is a very luxury business hotel, the pillows, duvets and beds are extremely comfortable. Our room was very clean, spacious and tastefully furnished and decorated. We had room service all the time; regardless how little we ordered for dinner a small dinner table with a well ironed white tablecloth was set carefully and politely by room service....

This huge property on the North side of Guilin has vast open spaces in the lobby, but rather small rooms. The rooms are comfortable enough, and well supplied with amenities. However, the Internet was extremely slow - or just not available at certain times of day. There is a large indoor swimming pool (bring your own swimming hat or they...

We stayed only one night Shangri la Guilin and it was very nice. We regret we cannot stay one more night. Service was excellent. Receptionnists speak good English. All staff was very kind. Unfortunately, our rooms were not on the river side, but still it was good. The rooms were very confortable.
