    A very nice and unusual hotel in the middle of Guilin botanical gardens”

    Guilinyi Royal Palace is a very nice hotel in the middle of Guilin botanical gardens (they have a small electric car driving you to the hotel buildings from one of the botanical garden's entrances). Because it's in the middle of the gardens, it has this serene atmosphere that is very relaxing and it takes you away from the crowds. It has ponds with plenty of fish in them all throughout the hotel, which is a great touch. Guilinyi Royal Palace is situated not that far from the train station (about 20 min walk) and is right next to a shopping centre, that has some decent food options.

    Best Hotel in China on This Trip!”

    Set in he middle of a local botanical park, this hotel is a visual delight, well run, with all the comfort you would expect from a four or five star hotel in the US. At about $120 per night, it’s somewhat costly, but you are sure to enjoy your stay. Note that it’s about twenty minutes from the city center.

    Lovely location in botanical garden. Must take a shuttle from the entrance of the garden. Clean and quiet. Would recommend eating in local area before enjoying the stay at hotel. The restaurant was just ok and not easy to go out once arriving.

    This place was one of our best stays in China. Quiet and peaceful with a beautiful traditional touch. The staff helped us alot and were very polite. It was very easy to book tours through the hotel. The shuttle bus was quick and easy to use and a shopping mall was nearby. We are satisfied with Guilinyi royal palace.

    Great place to be away from big city”

    The hotel is located in the middle of a botanic garden. There is buggy to transport you in and out of the park's entrance 24 hours a day. Out the park, there are many food stores and a shopping mall. If you are looking for a quiet, healthy, fresh and clean environment, this is THE hotel to be at. Children also can spend some time in the pool and the pond has lots of fish, where you can get some fish food from the restaurant's counter at no cost. The children love feeding the fishes.

    Well arrange tour”

    The front desk lady did help us to book a 19 seater van. The drawer + the tour guide will take us to local nice and inexpensive restaurant, explaining the local culture and introducing the places of interest. There was no rush during the tour, as the timing is all under our pace. The lady also helped us prebook the necessary ticket during each tour, saving us the trouble to wait in line for tickets or the risk of fully book event.

    We held a special dinner for 16 pax, the restaurant's manager helped us to decorate the room well, and took an extra mile to order a 3kg fruits cake for us. It isn't normal fruits cake where fruits are just the topping. Inside the cake contains fresh fruits too. The menu was pre-arrange 1 week in advance, everything turns out really great.

    I stay in many building blocks hotel, there is non like Royal Palace that gives you space and green. The air quality is superb in the morning and evening. Security is tight, despite the surrounding is a public garden. It is truely value for money. Furthermore, the lady who plays chinese music at the tea house, create a soothing and comfort environment to relax.

    Serenity and Elegance in the heart of the Park”

    Location, staff friendliness, room facilities

    An oasis of calm in busy Guilin, and an architectural masterpiece. The staff were friendly, attentive and courteous. They arranged an affordable airport transfer in a luxury car on the morning we checked out, and the room was fabulous also - spacious, elegant and tasteful. The only slight let-down was the cost of dinner items in the restaurant - exorbitant by local standards, and far too meat-heavy for vegetarians like us (not a balanced selection at all), but breakfast was reasonably good and the dining room is a pleasant dining environment.

    Wonderful. A beautiful oasis in a busy city.”

    Beautiful spotless room, tranquil gardens, great value for money

    I would highly recommend this hotel and I would love to go back there again. The rooms have beautiful traditional furniture, comfy beds and modern bathrooms. It was spotless. The hotel is situated in the Botanic Gardens and is a peaceful oasis. Lovely gardens, balcony over the pond and buildings. The location is great and there is a large shopping complex less than 5 minutes walk outside of the garden gate. We really enjoyed walking around the hotel grounds and also around the botanic gardens. It was a 5 minute walk to the entrance gate or you could get a ride in the hotel buggy. Only a short taxi ride to Elephant Trunk Hill also. Excellent value for money.

    Comfortable stay, lovely garden”

    Very quite from the city, comfortable room

    Hotel is located in a Park. So its surround by trees and river. It is very relaxing to walk in the park. There is a small shopping mall next to the park but from the hotel entrance, you will need to walk about 10- 15 min to cross the park to reach the mall. Local style food can be found at the top floor of the mall but I dint try them so have no comment. Wasn't sure whether they serve lunch or dinner at the hotel restaurant as I only walk to the restaurant for breakfast. Breakfast is ok. Room and bathroom is very clean and comfortable. They upgrade my room to a room with a small private garden which is nice. The only drawback about the room is the bathroom window. The window is large and outside the bathroom window is a enclose area with plants and flowers. Bathtub sit next to the window. The blind you will need to adjust correctly in order to cover the window completely otherwise it maybe able to see through especially if there are guest staying from at top floor with balcony and at night time. Shower is at the other side in the bathroom which have no problem with privacy. If you want a quite and cozy hotel to relax this maybe your choice. But if you want an hotel that can excess to the street and city outside easily, you may want to consider other hotel.

    Quiet location”

    We stayed 4 nights and while it is a clean an quiet hotel it is a little out of town and not easy to get to.as taxis do not always know where it is. The breakfast was also not really up to international standards as the food was cold and a little too 'local'. Nice if you want quiet place to stay as the park around the hotel is peaceful and well worth a walk.

    Peaceful”

    Peaceful setting within the city park. A busy park at night, but you would never know it once you entered into the hotel grounds. A short walk through the park (a couple scenic routes available) takes you to a shopping and dining complex, which meant we were never without. Some reviews stated this hotel was too far from shopping and dining, but I basically found that not a valid point. You can also ride the hotel's electric cart service to the main gate and take a taxi to the city center for a plethora of restaurants and shopping opportunities. The taxi maybe costs about $3 - $4USD each way. There is a large Chinese restaurant just next to the main gate. We missed it the first night because only the parking lot is visible from the gate / street. Breakfast left a little to be desired and it was never fully ready at the opening time. We did eat there every morning to save some time, but it was not something to look forward to. Based on that experience we did not even consider the hotel restaurant for other meals. I had the hotel arrange tours for the Li River and the LongJi Rice terraces for us in advance along with two way airport transportation. I was not disappointed, but be prepared because these tour providers try to do a lot of up selling along the way. Enjoy.

    Right In The Middle Of A Beautiful Garden ”

    This hotel is beautifully landscaped in the Chinese fashion. We stayed here 2 nights so we could have a full day to relax in serene beauty before we flew back across the ocean. Everything was great except the food for dinner, we didn't want to leave the premises and so we ate there 2 nights. The selection was limited and very Chinese and didn't taste very good to us. Also, there weren't many customers there each night. That said, we loved the hotel room, the grounds, swimming in the pristine pool, feeding the carp which are everywhere in the man-made streams and pools, and going to the Tea House to hear a young woman play Guzheng. They have an electric cart that can take you to the end of the park if you want to walk to nearby shops or eat as well.

    Great Hotel within a Green Lung”

    Loved the rooms where we got a free upgrade to a junior suite. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Hotel layouts are beautiful with each building took up a classic Chinese look. Staff were great too.

    Very good stay. I'd highly recommend it to those looking for peace and quiet stay in beautiful Guilin. Had a very relaxing time there while soaking in all the green surrounding of the Guilin Botanic Garden where the hotel is located. Food from the hotel's only restaurant were very good and priced reasonably too. Arrangements for sightseeing tour tickets are actually cheaper through the hotel which include transport charges compared to own arrangement. This include the airport transfer which we got the hotel to arrange that cost rmb100 compared to a normal taxi that cost around rmb120. This is one hotel that you must stay in if you want a different experience compared to any other typical hotels there is.

    Location, beautiful detail, service

    We enjoyed it so much in spite of being unlucky with rainy weather. We could enjoy beautiful views from our room and even the attractive details in the room. It was lovely to walk in the surrounding botanical gardens. The hotel breakfast was great and good value although we didn't like the dinner there. It was an easy walk to other shops and restaurants. Staff service was great. It's easy to join a trip down the lovely Li River for the day from there.

    Ground Decor, Location, Staff

    The Good Beautiful Decor - Serene Tang Dynasty styled complex with well decorated rooms. Architecture wise, the hotel's grounds were just as good for photos as the natural mountains that surrounds it. Great Staff - Pleasant & Helpful staff Special thanks to Yuki for going out of the way in helping us get a China Mobile SIM card. She really saved the day as we needed the SIM to contact our tour operator. Nice Location -its situated in the botanical gardens which does not allow cars into its compounds. So, the air is fresh n the quiet atmosphere is simply a plus. There are electric buggies that are used to transport guest to n from the gates of the botanical garden, rarely waited long. Mall nearby - just outside the botanical gardens is a mall that has many food options such as McD, KFC, Pizza, and some Japanese style restaurants. Here, you can take a taxi to any part of the city as there is always taxi at the roadside near the mall.
