My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early January, and we really enjoyed our stay! The combination of the location, price and customer service was unbeatable: the inn is right in the heart of downtown; the first thing you see as you come out are the Sun and Moon Pagodas on the Shan lake. The price was...

This is really a gem in Guilin. It is a very small establishment run by Jack. There is only 3 rooms in the inn. The hotel is by the lakeside of Guilin where the famous tourist site is located. The windows is double glazed thus insulated the noise from outside. However noise insulation inside is minimal – you can hear...

This inn offers a very personalised and warm service from Jack the proprietor himself. Jack has great knowledge on the city, which is helpful to our great stay. The inn is located right next to the city square, the Shanhu lake where the two pagodas are. Strategic location, clean and new rooms.

The inn was placed in a great location in walking distance to lake, lovely restaurants and shops. Jack the owner was very friendly and went out of his way to make us feel at home by letting us use his kitchen facilities, letting us borrow his umbrella and jackets, and buying us food to cook for breakfast

The location really could not be better; you are right next to the lake, in the center of everything. The room was huge, clean, and with a really soft (especially for China) bed. The owner is incredibly friendly, and really wants to practice his English while helping with anything. His pub on the ground floor is the cheapest place to...

Stopped by on our way to Yangshou, this hotel is recommended. Extremely central and the room is large, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The host Jack is a delight, he is super friendly and engaging and makes the best mojitos outside of Cuba. He booked for us a great way to get to Yangshou along the Li River. Pity we...

Our stay in Guilin was to be for only one night so, with the sole intention of arriving in the afternoon, wandering around the lakes in the evening and then moving on the following morning, the Lakeside Inn seemed perfectly located.
