“Good Lodging”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Place is clean and Spring, the owner of the hotel is very friendly.
She helped me on arranging the transport from Guilin to Long Ji rice terrace.
Good location overseeing the rice terraces. It is just midway from the 2 view points.

The downside is that the area is a bit tad expensive compared to the rest of Guilin.

Ditto other reviewers accolades. After traveling in China for a while, dealing with the hustle, bustle and the noise of the cities, we finally found peace, beauty and happiness here at Long Ji One. The panoramic view of the rice terrace and the majestic mountains are made for a movie. The hotel is so well run, which scores on all fronts. The decor, rustic chic (love the pictures by the Spring's husband); the bar area, perfectly relaxing (should try the home made wine. It's fragrant and strong. Although would love to have more western wine choices); restaurant, every dish served was very fresh and tasty, even the simple tomato and egg dish; staff, very helpful, friendly. Spring provided very helpful suggestions of places to go. also arranged cars for us to and from the hotel. room: clean and comfortable.

The Long Ji One Hotel had the most spectacular views of any hotel I think I have ever stayed in.

OVERALL:
We travelled with a family of five and took two rooms in the hotel. The hikes around the hotel are absolutely beautiful and well worth the trip. Million dollar views for a reasonable price with family service.

LOCATION:
The hotel is located in Ping'An outside of Longsheng, China. It is about a 15 minute walk up from where cars park to get to the hotel. We paid someone to carry a bag for us (CNY 30 or USD 5) and we hiked up alongside. There is light walking involved to get there but the tradeoff is that the hotel is on the side of a mountain with spectacular views.

FOOD:
The food we had in the hotel was great and inexpensive. Interestingly, many of the hotels and restaurants in the area use the same English menu but each cooks the food slightly differently.

ROOMS:
The rooms were very clean and reminded me of rooms you get in Swiss hotels - very clean and uncluttered. The Internet worked well too.

WORTH NOTING:
We went to a restaurant down near where the cars park one night and when we started walking back up, all the shops were closing and there were areas on the path with no light. Luckily we had flashlights with us and they are a must if you're going to be out walking around past dark.

The views, clean rooms and friendly staff are the selling points for this hotel. We would definitely go back again.

Great location, fantastic view, English speaking girl at the reception and good value for money (went with a family of four and had two rooms - one at 168 RM and one at 268 RMB - both are great with good views).

Trip here is a bit difficult. We took a taxi from Guilin for 2,5 hours (600 RMB). After arriving at the entrance of the village there is approximately 25 min. walk to the hotel - but it's all worth it.

The views from this hotel are definitely the main draw. However, there are plenty of other hotels / hostels situated higher than Longji One in Ping'an village but what this hotel offers is not just views but also friendly staff who are all relatives of the owner who ensure you feel at home.

The hotel is tastefully built in modern Zhuang design. I stayed in room 3A with views on two sides and it was great. The room is nicely furnished with low lighting. Bathroom is western style, simple but clean.

The hotel is about a 10 minute hike from the parking lot entrance to the village. The food at the restaurant was lovely - local cuisine cooked by relatives of the owner and her sister. Other restaurants and cafes are nearby. Spring, the owner, was away but her sister managed the place in her stead and did fine with foreign guests. She was very helpful in providing information on the hike from Ping'an to Dazhai (highly recommended).

Laundry service is 10 RMB for up to 10 items. My hiking boots were scrubbed clean for free. The wifi was was patchy but fine generally. The electricity went out for several hours one evening, but candles were freely provided. Ping'an is located in the remote countryside where most things are still transported up the hill manually or by donkey so I think the plumbing situation, wifi and electricity related issues are all pretty good all things considered.

Definitely recommend this place. It was fantastic.

Room Tip: 3A - Top floor, views on two sides, double bed - fantastic.

Booked this hotel for our trip to see the rice terraces based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and it fully lived up to expectations. Location was perfect, service was excellent and very friendly, and our room on the top floor with balcony had a beautiful view over the terraces. Room standard and cleanliness were far better than what we would have expected. If we ever return to Long Ji we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Top floor balcony room (3C) seems to be one of the best rooms. Great view and on sunny side.

Incredibly beautiful room with a view that is even more spectacular. Worth the trip out to see the rice terraces and to stay in this gorgeous hotel. We don't stay in pricey hotels but try to budget conscious and stay in middle of the road to upper level budget hotels. This was by far my favorite part of the trip with the best views and most reasonable price, and we stayed in the best room in the hotel. Highly recommend the highest floor with the corner room with the double wall of windows. We ate at another hotel our guide recommended around the corner so I did not try the food there, but the rest of the experience was great. Would recommend to anyone.
