Fubo Hotel: Affordable accommodation near the river

This accommodation was booked via our travel agent in Australia. We only paid $33AUD each per night here, so we werent expecting too much. We had also been told that it was a very basic Chinese 3 star Hotel, and would probably be very basic. I am pleased to report that we were quite impressed with the Fubo Hotel, after the Canaan, anything would be an improvement!

The lobby was nice, the reception staff spoke quite good english, and the location looked perfect, right on the river and only a short distance from the centre of town. When we entered our hotel room, we were happy little chappies! The room was quite large, room was furnished nicely AND it had a fridge and more importantly .... a real Hair Dryer!!! We were jumping for joy at the sight of such small luxuries!

The view from our bedroom window was beautiful, the river with karst hills in the distance. And on subsequent days, the sky became clearer and the view became even better.

We ate at the Restaurant one night and also ordered room service on another night and the food was great.

So ... we have nothing negative at all to report about the Fubo Hotel in Guilin. It was all good - the room was good, the price was good, the food was good and the location was good. I would highly recommend this Hotel for people travelling on a budget. Only one very small issue was that we were told there was an in-room safe and there wasnt, so we had to leave our valuables at the safety deposit box at reception, which wasnt really a major issue. Oh, and we did get a massage here, mine was so hard that the lady left me bruised!

Xiao Yang Lou International Hostel: Cheap, clean accomodations in Guilin

We stayed at this hostel two nights in May, 2008, one ce upon arrival by air from Bangkok on our way to Yangshuo and then again on our return from Yangshuo before flying to Beijing. Inn was clean, staff was helpful, not overly friendly. Room was clean, rather basic, which we expected, having read reviews prior to booking. We paid 110RMB/night (about $17 USD) for a room with private bath and A/C. Breakfast was not included. We booked on Hostels.com. This hostel is located in a good area of town within a very short walk of the long distance bus station and the train station also. It is also within a short taxi ride from the last airport express bus stop. Very easy to get to regardless of your method of arrival into town.

From airport, take the airport shuttle to CAAC station,the last stop, then take a taxi to the hostel. Taxi costs about 8 RMB, about 10 minutes.

From the Guilin long distance bus station, exit the bus station, turn left. Walk for one minute and when approaching the bridge, cross the road and you will see the green facia of the hotel

Backs to the river. Within easy walking distance of the Guilin long distance bus station.

Backstreet Youth Hostel: Great location in city centre

This is the best youth hostel in Guilin as I also stayed at the Flowers Youth Hostel when I arrived back from Yangshou. It's very well located on a quiet street near the river and the city centre where there are some good shops and restaurants. I arrived here early in the morning after arriving on the overnight train from Guangzhou and luckily they had a room. The room was large with two single beds with nicely arranged pillows on them and was clean and neat and tidy and was RMB110. The communal area has nice large sofas and tables and is a nice chill-out area plus the breakfasts are very good. The staff are friendly and kind and I booked two tours with them: the first was a day tour to the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces and the second was the Li River cruise - both of which were well priced and excellent days out. One of the best places I stayed at in the 3 months I was in China.

Around Zhongshan Nanlu: Lots of Hotels

No worries, you can find lots of hotels along Zhongshan Nanlu. You have posh hotels and the not so posh hotels, the medium and low range lodges - just spend some time walking and you will find something suitable for you. During low seasons, you can find that most hotels offer promotions for the rooms. Some tour operators along the street offer good prices for hotel stays but make sure you take a look at the rooms first before confirming.

Convenient Location: Guilin's China Telekom Hotel

We went there during the month of September (beginning of autumn) and there was a promotion on the hotel. We did not book this hotel in advance. It was by chance that we booked into this hotel as upon arrival at Guilin Train Station which was neaby to this hotel, lots of tour operators were "harrassing" and persistently followed us around. In order to get rid of them, we "parked" ourselves in one of the shopping stalls and one of us went in search of hotels. There were actually plenty to choose from along this area. As there was a promotion on the rooms, we went and checked it out. The rooms that were on promotion were all taken up but they rest assured us that the following day, they will let us have one of the rooms on promotion. As such, we got hold of the better room (with parquet floor, newer) at RMB126 for the 1st night and subsequently we shifted ourselves to a cheaper one (carpeted, older) at RMB96/- per room.
The two rooms were large and airy, clean sheets and the baths were clean with hot showers.

See attached pictures of the two rooms layout .

Located along the busy street of Zhongshan Nanlu, almost opposite the Guilin Train station. Just outside the hotel is the city buses bus stops. Walkable distance to the Water System of Guilin ("Liang Jiang, Xi Fu" - "Two rivers and four lakes" scenic spot). Lots of shopping stalls and night market along the Zhongshan Nanlu.

Staff in hotel are polite and helpful. They do arrange ground tours for guests.

Paradise Yangshuo Resort: Hotel of Modern Art

We arrived late after an hour long transfer from Guilin Airport (RMB350 one way). They did not have much business and tried to close the restaurant early but on our insistance they serve us some sandwiches and satay that was very good. This was at 11:45 at night.
The rooms are very modern and stark. They have a few quirks that need some attention, but overall it is a nice place. The beds are very hard (common in China) and the bathroom was small and all glass. I have been married too long for a glass bathroom, too much information! There are small flat screen TVs in the rooms with HBO, BBC and CNN. Internet is NOT available in the rooms. (there is a business center with computers)
Breakfast was included in the room rate and was very good.
The staff tried very hard to be accomodating.

The hotel is situated inside an amazing sculpture garden. This is the brain child of a Taiwanese millionaire who wanted to create a special "art space" for future generations. Artists from China and all over the world have been invited to work in the atelier. You can take a great tour of the garden by golf cart with a very personable guide. The sculptures are wonderful. Even my husband who knows nothing about modern art really enjoyed the tour.
There is shrine to the Taiwanese pop star Teresa Teng inside the sculpture garden. Her Hong Kong house has been duplicated and there are displays of her costumes, gold records, full size cardboard replicas of her cars and lots of memorabilia. I had never heard of her, but I think she must be the Chinese equivalant of Elvis.
The gardens also have a special childrens section that feature the Taiwanese artists Jimmy. Kids and adults can also attend art workshops.

Overseas Chinese Mansions: Cheapest in Guilin

Expensive for china!! Even staying in a clean room isn't worth the 80 yuen they charge. The room was a dirty (I mean...dirty) dormitory room not worth the price. But it was the cheapest accommodation in Guilin.

Nothing outstanding.

Kweilin Hotel: Good Dorms

I stayed at the Kweilin Hotel which had some nice big room dormitories for 5 FEC's per night (US$1.35). They were pretty cold rooms but they had extra blankets so it was comfortable for sleeping. I stayed here for 3 nights. There were nice views from the 3rd floor dorm rooms out over the city.

To find the hotel you will take a left after leaving the train station and walk until you cross the river then you will see hotel on your left. It's about a 15 minute walk. (this is all from 1987 so will be very outdated! haha)

Holiday Inn: Nice Highrise Hotel

It was Holiday Inn - Guilin when I stayed here, but I believe the name and ownership has changed to Guilin Bravo Hotel.
Reasonable pricing... like $70 or something from what I could research on the internet.

Quite comfortable hotel, much like you'd find in the U.S. TV, nice beds, etc. There's a lounge and a gift shop, as well as a pool. There are doorbells on the rooms, which is kind of nifty. :-)
