Near the mountain and by the river, the first hotel we visit is Guilin Inn, a newly-built hotel in 117, Ring West Road, Xiangshan District (inside Guilin Botanical Garden), where the ancient trees tower to the sky, the grasses look like pieces of green carpet and the winding paths lead to quiet seclusion with bridges, ponds, bonsais, a swimming pool, rockeries and green banana plants well-arranged, and it seems as if you were wandering along a picturesque fairyland, recreating the charm of ancient Guilin inns during the Tang dynasty. There are 5 independent buildings well-equipped with modern advanced facilitates such as Wi-Fi, bars, tea houses in the hotel, and the king size bed rooms, standard twin rooms, deluxe sightseeing big bed rooms, luxury suites are available for guests of various levels. The guest rooms in the hotel are built in accordance with standards of the Chinese starred hotels, most of which are affiliated by a waterside garden and an independent sightseeing balcony. Not only is the hotel well-equipped with modern facilities, but also it neighbores the biggest recreational and commercial center in Guilin- Lianda Commercial Area and 101 Paradise, making it the first choice for visitors who are planning a Guilin travel. The highlight of the hotel lies in its amazing environment, and you can enjoy fresh air and appreciate the traditional Chinese architectural style here.
As far as the architectural style is concerned, Orange Osmanthus Hotel is relatively backward compared with Guilin Inn and it’s located in 77, Zhongshan South Road, Xiangshan District of Guilin, well-equipped with modern facilities. The manager of the hotel tells us that their washrooms are the cleanest in Guilin to meet the demand of the foreign visitors. In addition, we’re informed by our trip adviser that the hotel has been involved in hotel business for over ten years, whose software facilities are better than Gulin Inn, though its old fashioned architectural style.
The third hotel we visit is Guilin Hotel, located in 14, Ronghu South Road, Guilin, which is much larger in scale and more magnificent in style than the previous two ones, and it’s well-equipped with advanced facilities imported from the U.S. to meet the demands of foreign visitors. The hotel is composed of two building, with the first one mainly for the common guests and the second one for VIPs, both of which are well-connected by a long corridor, and they are very different is decorative style. The rooms for VIPs are decorated in a more delicate and luxury style, perfectly combining the traditional Chinese architectural style with that of western as one.
As far as the fourth hotel we visit is concerned, Shangri-La Hotel, in 111, Ring North Road, Qixing District of Guilin, is the most splendid one of the six hotels, which is decorated in an impressive imperial style. Shangri-La Hotel is well-equipped with modern catering & entertaining facilities such as a lobby, cafés, specialty restaurants, bars and multi-functional halls as well as luxury banquet halls, a swimming pool, table- tennis court and a fitness center. The hotel boasts the biggest dancing hall in Guilin, and the 6 multi-functional restaurants range from 800 square feet to 2,150 square feet in size, which is an ideal choice for the top foreign visitors.
We take a bus to carry on the journey and arrive at Gulin Lijiang Waterfall Hotel, the fifth destination of our itinerary, which is situated at the end of Zhengyang Walking Street and neighbors the “Two Rivers and Four Lakes”, and it boasts the biggest man-made waterfall in Guilin. The hotel is decorated in a magnificent style with 646 luxury rooms of various levels, including a presidential suite, 22 luxurious distinguished guest suites and 20 VIP rooms, 62 superior business rooms and 541 standard rooms, and the supporting facilities and service are perfect, including a Chinese-style restaurant, a western-style restaurant, conference rooms, a swimming pool, the fitness center and sauna & massage rooms. The man-made waterfall has a drop of 45 meters with 72 meters wide on the top and 75 meters wide at the bottom, which has been listed on the World Guiness Records.
The last hotel we visit is Sheraton Hotel in 15, Binjiang Road, Xiangshan District of Guilin, a world-famous chain hotel, which is decorated in a luxury style for top visitors and well-equipped with modern facilities, ranging from a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a recreation center to luxurious rooms of different sizes, and it fully meets the demands of visitors of various levels.
What touches me most during Guilin hotel travel is the advice given by Dai Yiwen, a senior tour guide from CITS, who says that: “Generally speaking, the foreign visitors can be classified into two categories: visitors for sightseeing and visitors for business, and we, travel advisers should take the former to the hotels neighboring downtown area, so they can easily get access to the nearby scenic spots and the shopping stores. For those who travel for business, you are advised to choose a hotel with Wi-Fi service in the suburb area for them, creating a comfortable atmosphere for their work, what’s more, they can take a taxi to the nearby attractions as well. Of course, it’s very flexible for us to choose hotels for our guests, and our service will be appreciated eventually if we put our whole hearts into it.” I really agree with what she says.
I really benefit a lot from this experience, of which the most impressive one is that “there are three hundred and sixty trades, and every trade has its master”, so I make up my mind to work hard in the future to become an elite in the filed of network marketing, making my life more meaningful.
