Breakfast- not bad but had to buy a second one as only 1 of us given a token (odd since we booked a double room…hmm)
Met Sam at the entrance and he drove us to Guilin Wharf to catch the river boat down the Li Jiang (Jiang= river). There were loads of hawkers with photo books but I couldn't see the point …
... raining - we were given ponchos, so were dry - and it's certainly not cold!! I really enjoyed this show - I know it was a little pricy to see, but I would go again like a shot and I know I will never get a chance to see it again, as this is the only place in the world where it will happen! Superb!!!!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Based around renovated Qing courtyard style hotel; beautiful mountain backdrop. Quiet & peaceful. Amenities good. Next door restaurant (Le Votre) also owned by them- excellent food at good prices. Very central and room had good facilities. No in-room internet but attractive lobby had guest computer.
