Guilin hotel rates aren't expensive at all. The living standard is very low comparing with Beijing and Hong Kong. Hotel rooms are generally spacious. Since the most luxury 5-star hotels are just around US$100, why don’t we go luxury?
I have short-listed a number of 5-star hotels in Guilin. If you tend to stay at Yangshuo overnight, check out the Yangshuo hostels as well.
