A short stop here for us with not much time to enjoy amenities. The hotel felt very large and "corporate" when we checked in, but we wanted everything to work. The hotel delivers, a large lobby, with bar overlooking pool, a westernized restaurant and a club bar, as well as a more formal looking Chinese restaurant. The room was very...

Far away from a Shangri-la on top locations, still is the best choice for Guilin. Compared to Sheraton, the location is worse but the hotel is better. The small details on other Shangri-la are missing on this one, so I do not give 5 points

We stayed at this hotel for two nights (22 - 23 October 2013). In general our stay was fair. There was nothing special to mention. Hotel staff was friendly. The restaurant where daily breakfast buffet is held needs improvement in terms of ventilation, space, and the way food is displayed. Restaurant is very crowded and smelly in the morning.

Stayed here with my family at the end of Oct '13. Guilin city and the surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning and the new Shangri La hotel is placed on the river with amazing views out towards the limestone mountains. The hotel is modern and luxurious - the rooms were a good size and the bathrooms were big with shower and...

As I arrived at the Shangri-La Guilin I was immediately impressed by its very grand lobby and magnificent hotel ground. However, the room was only average IMG. Don't get me wrong - it was still a very nice and adequate room - just not of the Shangri-La quality that I was expecting. The decor was rather bland and tired and...

Having stayed a few nights in the crowded city of Beijing in an average hotel, it was lovely to arrive in the calm and luxurious atmosphere of the Shangri-La in Guilin. The staff came the closest to having areal service ethic of anywhere we saw in China, the room we had was very well appointed with a nice view and...

This hotel may be a 5 star in Guilin but is by no means worth a five star rating.The hotel itself has no atmosphere of warmth. Our first dinner in the Shang Palace restaurant was terrible. They were out of stock with the first 2 wines we ordered & had to wait for ages for another bottle to finally come-they...

If you are planning to go to Guilin, this is the hotel to be. Beautiful property with excellent service. Guilin is not as pretty as Yangshuo, but you won't find a hotel as good as this one in the region. The rooms are very confortable and the staff is very efficient and helpful.

I stayed here with my Mum who was visiting me in China in August 2012. It was a really good choice for us because it allowed us some creature comforts whilst exploring the culture in and around Guilin. The hotel service was exceptional, all staff were efficient and very helpful. The food was fantastic, and we ate in the restaurant...

Shangri-La hotel is very impressive from the outside, but as you would expect as supposed to be the best in the city. Greeted on arrival by door staff who dealt with all the bags whilst we checked in, offered an upgrade to club lounge but at 300 rem a day decided not to bother as it just provided breakfast and...
