The Guilin Lijiang Waterfall Hotel is located in the city center area of ​​Guilin, within walking distance to Elephant Trunk Hill, Sun & Moon Pagodas at Shan Lake, Banyan Lake, Shangshui Snack Street and Zhengyang Walking Street. The hotel has a large man-made waterfall running down the exterior of the building with a width of 72 meters in the upper part, a width of 75 meters in the lower part and a height of 45 meters for the waterfall. It has been included among the Guinness World Records of having the largest artificial waterfall at the hotel.
The rooms are big and the hotel staff are very friendly. If you are used to firmer mattresses, the beds are quite comfortable. Lots of travel agencies like to put their Chinese domestic tour groups within this hotel so it can be quite busy and we have some clients advised that the hotel facilities are dated but the location is very convenient for those who love to go out shopping, eating and seeking the nightlife in the city center of Guilin.
