Hotel located next to most famous Li River. Magnificent view if your room facing river on high floor. A bit out of town - 15 mins by car or 50 mins walk to the centre of town. Metered taxi from Guilinxi station to hotel around RMB 35 but on arrival, taxi doesn't use meter and asked for RMB 50. Staff are well trained with good English, excellent massage with theropist Alma Hou? and good hotel facilities. Hotel design a bit dated but same as other hotels.

Unique Gastronomic Experiences in the Horizon Club Lounge, Shangri-la Guilin
Allan L

We had an enjoyable 4 nights stay at the Horizon Club Room.

There were many sweet surprises for the food served at the Club Lounge.

Firstly, they place a special noodle stall serving local Guilin rice noodles inside a corner of the lounge. The taste is very good & it is definitely a must try . We had it almost everyday during our stays there.

The lounge also serves a special type of sushi roll that used the dragon fruit juice
to blend with the sushi rice. This is something special & creative that one can’t really find it in the ordinary sushi restaurants.

The Italian sun dried tomato & garlic panini bread was a superb dish that serves during the evening cocktail hour. Again this is another plus point for the Club lounge to fill its customers’ gastronomic experiences. Special thanks to Pastry Chef Owen for creating such a wonderful Italian panini bread tasting experience.

We were happy to observe that the chef on duty changed few dishes served during the short 2 hours evening cocktail. This would definitely further enhance the guests’ happy hour experiences. A big thumb up for this great effort.

Other than the above, the fried “ Yu Thiao” , Black rice porridge ,Guilin Gongcheng Tea soup, pastries & fresh juices were the top notches during the breakfast hours.

We truly appreciate Lounge Manager Ms Daisy for her attentiveness towards our needs. She consistently shows her proactiveness in meeting her customers expectations. She is very resourceful & has a good follow up skills. Ms Daisy leads a good team of lounge executives well and everyone of them show great passion in servicing their customers efficiently. Thanks for recommending us few delicious local delicacies for our great dining experiences in your Shang Palace.

Lounge executive Ms Vera was able to create a delighting customer experience during our check in. She’d provided us with valuable information about the hotel amenities & promotions. We were looking forward to explore all the offerings & events organized by the hotel. She’d shown great respectfulness towards her customers all the time.

Lounge Executive Ms Yedda taught us how to savor the Guilin rice Noodles & we really appreciate that. She always portrays her kindness in delivering her customers service to us. She’d shown great interest towards her customers & always extend her willingness to help.

Well, we were also grateful with the feedback on the sumptuous dinner we had for the 2 consecutive nights there. Special thanks to the Chinese Operations Manager, Ms Sally Zhou for recommending us a series of future food promotions & in depth explanation on how the local Osmanthus fish prepared in spicy soup is so delicious in Shang Palace. Sally’s vast knowledge on the Chinese food preparation & the origin of ingredients were an eye opener to us. We’d learned few good tips on some of the regional delicacies from her as well.

We look forward to come back to this hotel again. Keep up with your good job!
