There was nothing special about this hotel. It's quite old looking and dark. There is only only lift servicing the entire hotel, and the staff were also using this lift to take the luggage to the rooms so once the bellboy occupied the lift to send the luggages, the guests have to just wait for the lift to be empty again.

The rooms are not bad though, in terms of space, as it is quite spacious. Although the beds/mattress were quite hard. Don't bother switching on the tv cos everything is in chinese. No coffee provided, only chinese tea. Check the kettle carefully because when we wanted to use it, there was still tea in it.

Location wise, it is not that near the famous West Street. U still have to walk a good 10 to 15 minutes. So don't be fooled by the name of this hotel, it is not exactly near West Street. Although to the Muslims, this hotel is close to one of the halal restaurant that sells homemade noodles. The price of food is reasonable in this restaurant.

If you don't mind paying more, I suggest you look for a better hotel close to West Street.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the street so you can have a view of the hills.

Checking inn took a long time the staff were unprofessional the carpet stack and the walls are dirty. Their breakfast was very basic. A friend of mine saw a big rat in the hallway. Their Travel Agent is a big scam. No English speaking staff. For 300yuan not worth it. Look for another hotel people.

Room Tip: AVOID this hotel

We stayed in this hotel for our tour under Guilin Tailian International Travel Service. The hotel looks simple and budget. The time we arrived Yangshuo City, we found that this city is reall nice and unique. Everything is much impressive with their scenic view of lake stones. We checked in at this hotel at night after travelling about 3 hours from Guilin by car. There is a lot of chinese tour group when we checked in here. They did serve breakfast but we do not take any because we looking for non-pork meal/halal. The room spacious but dirty and not keep well. Everything in the room looks messy and old. Hotel located near to West Street which is very crowded at night and good to buy some cheapest souvenir. They provided PC + internet in the room which is very good and great for me.

I have a feeling that this hotel is totally mismanaged. They call it 5 stars and I am sure that by international standards it would barely receive 2-3. The reception staff are not frienddly and no-one speaks english. The entire place is filthy.By chance we needed to move a sofa in the lobby and there were stacks of dirt below it as if this had not been clied for months. All the carpets in the corridors and rooms are heavily stained. In the elevator they have a different carpet for each day, but I double it they ever clean them as they are all heavily stained. Breakfast is 99% suitable for Oriental guests and certainly not for western ones

We stayed at this hotel with China Focus tours. The only good thing was the view. The carpet had stains and the staff were unhelpful. The glass walled bathroom is great for "design" but totally impractical. The hotel was not in a great location. You had to take a cart to get to a part of the city that offered more things to do. I did not feel comfortable outside the hotel at night. Fortunately we were only there for one night. China Focus tried to claim this as a 5-star but they overrated all their hotels. You are better off staying elsewhere.
