The White House Hotel Guilin
Ranked #41 of 659 Hotels in Guilin
Reviewed 26 June 2013

This is one of the most beautiful hotels in Guilin- wonderfully overlooking a lovely lake with stunning restaurant and bar terraces, antiques and an oasis of charm and quiet yet in the middle of the City. You are on the door step of one of the most lovely lakes in Guilin and a early evening stroll around it is a joy. The hotel staff are superb and go the extra mile to help you in every way. The restaurant food is outstanding and the Hainan Chicken Rice is out of this world! Quality like this is very rare and we will definately return!

The atmosphere is unique: old traditional European style decoration and all those fine vintage furniture impressed me!
Very nice service! The agents were super sweet and courtesy, offered us room change service twice. Very delicious authentic Shanghainese dishes!

This relaxed and elegant hotel is exactly what we needed after spending four days in chaotic Shanghai. Not only is this 37-room boutique hotel in an ideal location in the center of Guilin, it provides a unique alternative to the large hotels (Sheraton, Bravo, etc.), where tourists in this city are usually found. The building is the former residence of a famous Chinese general in the 1930s, and the hotel exudes that old, elegant by-gone era of Chinese history. The common areas and rooms are immaculately decorated and full of interesting antiques and photographs. I had a great time exploring the museum-like areas of this absolutely beautiful hotel.

My family had a suite and a king room. Both were amazingly beautiful and included all the modern amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel.

The staff, especially Helen, were very attentive and simply couldn't do enough for us. I had never experienced this level of personal attention by a hotel staff. We were so glad we chose this hotel over the large chain hotels. In my opinion, there is no better option in Guilin.

Dear our valuable guests,
Thank you so much for your choosing our hotel. The hotel is located near the Rong Lake,also it's convenience to walk to the shopping center or to local dishes. The lobby and gallery are decorated by our owner's boutiques which are collected from overseas,also including some old pictures in last 1930's of Guilin. It's valueable to see the history. There is a private gazibo on the third floor,it's the best place to take the pictures for the lake,expecially in the night. We are looking forward to see you in next time.
