Due to a delayed stopover we had to stay one night in Guilin on short notice and chose the Hong Kong Hotel due to the proximity to the busses going to the rice terraces the next morning.
We got a room with a double bed in the 11th floor and were quite satisfied. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom big enough. It's not a modern five star accommodation but it does the job. On the walls, the carpet and the decoration it's obvious that the hotel is already in use for a lot of years but at least in our room it somehow added a little charm. The view is quite good and there are a lot of food choices around. With a taxi it's a brief ride to the Elephant mountain or the lake area.
We had no breakfast included so I cannot comment on that.
Check-in was quick and efficient. Check-out was even easier because we could ask the cleaning lady already in advance to check the room and speed up the check-out procedure.
All in all an acceptable option with an unbeatable advantage towards the bus connection.More
