Very good hotel, maybe the best we had in China, with excellent location in the centre of the city.
With the rush for visiting this and that, we had no time to use most of its facilities, but everything seemed to work perfectly.
I read that the hotel has excellent views over the river, but didn’t confirm it: I had common views of the neighbour buildings. My bad luck!
Being in a package, I don't know what I paid for it.
Address: Bin Jiang Nan Road, , Guilin, Guangxi
Not so bad
We were warned by our guide that the lunch in the boat “couldn’t reach our expectations” so we should be prepared to… starve.
Well, it was not a great event, but we ate enough, and the quality was not that bad.
One thing I was sorrow: I missed the turtle soup, because they took it away sooner than I expected. Be aware of that: the plates go back quicker than they come.
After lunch we saw the crew washing the dishes... in the river. Well... AFTER lunch, thanks God!
With feet in the water
In the Elephant’s Trunk park, there’s a small esplanade… IN the water.
People prepare some food by the river, and you may try the fun of eating or drinking, with your feet in the water. I didn’t check the prices, but, as we only saw locals using it, they must be a pleasant surprise.
It was hot, very hot, when we went to the Elephant’s Trunk park. We envied the lucky guys that were lazing in the shade, with the feet in the water.
That was the true image of serenity and easy comfort.
