“A real local, family run hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

If you wish to experience the local life in a Chinese village, then this is the hotel.
Located on the entrance to Pang'an village it provides excellent views from most rooms. Our room was 'A' on the first floor, looking out of the rice terraces and the village gardens. Go for a guided walk through the terraces to the various viewing points on the hillside to experience, mind blowing views. We also had the chance to see true village life with the locals preparing a meal for about 30 people. Real village life......fantastic. Make sure you stay at Long Ji One and meet the owners family.

Room Tip: Go for room A on the first floor

We stayed in room 3C with the most incredible view of the rice terraces from the windows. Waking up to that view was one of the highlights of our trip to China. The room had everything you could need for a short stay.

Ping An was a wonderful relief from the normally insanely busy China. The hotel was a short walk from the two view points and it was easy to get away from the crowds if you set off early.

It is more expensive than other hotels in the village but the view is worth every penny. The staff were friendly at check in and the hotel even had Wi-Fi. Communication was easy via email to book the room.

Room Tip: Stay in room 3C with the view to die for.

First, the staff was really nice and helpful. When we booked our rooms, we had the hotel arrange for a pick-up at Guilin airport plus a detour at our (future) Guilin hotel before bringing us to Ping An. This was very nice of them.

The hotel itself is mainly wooden, very clean and very nicely decorated. It has some kind of personal touch that was very pleasant and made us at ease. The location, at the edge of the village, provides direct access to the village and an incredible view of the rice terraces.

About the rooms, we booked 2A and 3A. They are both corner rooms with double bed and with a fantastic 180° view on the rice terraces. If you can, choose 3A: The view is slightly better and most importantly 2A can be more noisy (all guests pass in front of this room). It seems like 3C has also an excellent view (3 sides with one towards the village) plus a private balcony making it a potential winner. Unfortunately, 3C might not always be available for booking. All rooms are clean, nice and well equipped (thought the bathrooms could get a refresh touch).

Hiking is the main activity in Ping An and you'll be rewarded with incredible views that will make you want to stay more in the area. Oh, and if you're lucky, don't you miss the morning fog !

Room Tip: Best rooms in my opinion : 3C (yes) is first, then 3A, then 2A.

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.
