The Shangri-La Guilin hotel is just what a luxury international hotel should be - a place to relax in comfort, enjoy good food (particularly the amazing breakfast buffet) and take in a great view of the scenery, the Li River backdropped with huge and jagged karst formations in this case. We had a couple of occasions to interface with the... More

Prior to our stay in Guilin, I was not familiar with the Shangri-La brand of hotels. This is a very nice hotel (5 star), but it is not in a central location. If you have a driver like we did or are on a bus tour, this shouldn't concern you. Others should note that a taxi is recommended to get... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Yangshuo and had a very relaxing time. The hotel is huge and seemed rather empty when we were there. The only other guests we ran into were in the lobby and restaurant. It's as you expect a Shangri-la Hotel to be: clean, comfortable, luxurious and with great service. The bathroom... More

This hotel is truly amazing. From the minute you get out of the car you are blown away by the splendour and magnificence of the interior and gardens. Check in was quick. We had a river view room on the Horizon Club floor and it was incredible. The room was very large, clean and a comfortable big bed with good... More

The gardens at the back of the hotel indicate the beauty of the interior of the hotel. A wonderful night's lodging before the early riverside farmer's market and possibly your Li River cruise later in the day.In house restaurant has a wonderful Buffet breakfast. Very satisfying to North American taste.

We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel whilst on an organised tour in July 2012. The hotel didn't appear to be centrally located in the city, but being on a bus tour it wasn't a worry to us. Upon entering the hotel, a minority in her costume greeted us at the front door. They had a magnificent hotel foyer - really... More

Nice rooms, pretty good food, very pleasant staff, great late checkout for Horizon Club rooms at 6pm and amazingly spectacular views. As a couple the thing we didn't like about this hotel was that we couldn't sauna/spa/steam room together as there are separate facilities in the male and female bathrooms.

9、 This hotel is really good. I totally delivers on the Shangri-La brand promise without any reasonable doubt. The lobby is well-lit and welcoming, the staff bend over backwards to provide any service you may need. They were extremely helpful in suggesting and arranging a few local activities. When the time came to leave they also arranged the ticket purchase... More

On our recent trip to Asia, we had to choose between seeing the terra cotta warriors or a tour of the River Li. We chose Guilin and stayed two nights at the Shangri-La. We have no regrets. This area of China is beautiful with many things to see and do, and the hotel was a standout. The hotel was beautiful... More

We stayed here on our way in and out of Guilin. it was just perfect for a bit of much needed luxury. The rooms were wonderful and the staff were excellent.
