Lovely hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We loved this hotel! Odynovo Tours booked us into Shangri La hotel for three nights. The room was very comfortable and well maintained. Our room had a river view – very nice. Breakfast buffet was great and had a fantastic selection of the freshly squeezed juices (passion fruit juice was our favorite). Wi-Fi worked very well. Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful.

Beautiful hotel!

A lovely hotel/resort with many amenities, including a mini zoo which was quite surprising! The gardens in particular were lovely for a late night stroll.
The rooms were clean and spacious (pay a little extra and go for the river view, it's worth it!) but the most notable aspect of this hotel is the service, which was exceptional.
A little bit out of the city centre, can't rely on public transport and will need to taxi to and from the hotel.

Perfect

I could not find anything that needs improvement. Nice luxury room with river view, clean bed. Great breakfast, nice pool, and garden, good location although not in city center, which is 15 minutes and 15 cny away.

Amazing service from Nan-Nan

Amazing service, especially from Nan-nan and his team, nice gestures throughout to make us feel welcomed. One of the best hotels in China. Expected a lot from Shangri La, and the hotel exceeded our expectations.

Big thanks to Ray, the Concierge

The weather while we were in Guilin was HORRIBLE, it rains the entire time, but that didn't stop us haven't fun. This was possible because of Ray, the concierge. He was amazing at providing advice on things to do and helping organize those things. We found that things around Guilin are quite spread out so this type of help was invaluable, especially given the language barrier. Thank you so much Ray! Also the hotel was very nice!
