Centrally located near touristy areas, but also the lake system, shops, and elephant trunk hill. At 2030 each day, the south wall of hotel becomes a huge waterfall with music. Hotel is site for many weddings,so provides great opportunity to interact w Chinese people. Food so so, although breakfast buffet just fine. Rooms have great views.

This is a very big hotel and it is adjacent to some very good shopping. In front is a big lake with a pagoda. There was a lot of tourists walking around the lake and going to visit the pagoda. We had a lovely room facing the lake and very spacious. Wifi was good. The A/C was not good as... More

A very welll placed location. Within walking distances to shopping, food and attractions. Hotel room and facilities are a little tired. Restaurant/coffee shop service is good. Staff at front office counter are good. The nightly Waterfall Show is a waste of resources. Nothing spectacular. Not worth the effort.

We stayed at this hotel as part of our Sinorama Holiday Tour. And WHAT A LOCATION! At night, we walked across the road to a beautifully lit up park on the river edge and looked straight across to 2 pagodas beautifully lit up! SUCH a pretty walk!

This hotel is located around the corner from the market stalls and food vendors near the square. It is a great location. The waterfall was a surprise to us but worth seeing at least once. It was a bit "Las Vegas" Chinese style. The rooms were nice and clean, no complaints, but a bit tired. The view we had from... More

The hotel's unique water feature draws crowds each evening, inside the accommodation is disappointing. Comfortable enough bed but furnishings all a little tired. The breakfast provided was totally inedible for western tastes and no possibility of upgrade. Lift/room ratio inadequate.

Large rooms, comfortable beds, good food, friendly staff and a convenient location. What more do you want to visit this charming city? Nothing was too much trouble and the staff made excellent suggestions when asked even with our limited Chinese. Amazing waterfall effect from the hotel roof each evening. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

The hotel was really beautiful, with a very good view of the lake and the pagoda. The waterfall is very good concept, and our short stay in Guilin was made special by the hotel. If you are going to Guilin, look no further.

Perfect location! right in the center of everything - street shopping & night market just at the back... sun & moon pagoda is just in front... elephant trunk hill just 5-10min walk... very unique feature is the "waterfall show" every night at 8pm. rooms are big with good breakfast.

Before giving a poor evaluation, one should consider the financial consequences. In this case I do not think that the hotel would miss the independent Western tourist. While we were there we saw two weddings and a conference for about 1000 people. There were usually a car park full of tourist bus' The positives:- well located and a well laid... More
