Very nice owner very helpful but the repair noise made us negative about the inn
Building repairs next to our room immediately made me negative about the inn. Towels were not replaced on daily base. Our room was rather small but for the price I guess it is value.
Very well situated near the lake and shopping area.

A comfortable stay with great hosts.
The bathroom facilities were somewhat cramped but more than adequate. It should be appreciated that the Lakeside Inn is a bar with some accommodation and therefore it should not be compared to an hotel. It is a guest house and in this context it is very good.
The owners went above and beyond the call of duty to provide clean, comfortable accommodation and friendly advice to enable guests to get the most out of their visit to Guilin. The location is perfect with a number of the tourist attractions within walking distance.

Was a bit difficult to find with construction going on next door.
Location was excellent - close to the lake and the shopping street. Couldn’t be more central. It is a really like a secret cozy place with just 3 rooms but everything was ship shape. Just what we needed. The friendly hosts also entertained my son playing computer games with them!

I would highly recommend Lakeside Inn.
The location is excellent . The lake is almost right outside the door and the paths are beautifully lit at night for an evening walk. Starbucks is across the road for a morning coffee, overlooking the lake. It was fun to meet Jimmy the owner of the Inn and we enjoyed visiting with him in the little bar each evening. Tours were arranged for us , with our pick up at beside the Lakeside Inn. We speak English only but we were very comfortable speaking with Jimmy.

Good to stay close to Guilin Lake. Wet weather prevented outdoor activities
The hotel was central and convenient
A little more basic than previous hotels but clean and Jack was helpful

A raft trip on Li River was not perfectly organized. In the end from Yangshuo we had to find public transport to return to Guilin. It was not cleary communicated in advance.
Good location: close to the lake with the pagodas and to the pedestrian street with many restaurants. Hotel's manager very helpful: speaking English, arranging tickets for trips.

The Little Inn with a Warm Heart-I wish I could have stayed longer.
I was not bothered by it but the next door building is being renovated and there is some noise and mess which is likely to last a further year. If you are a light sleeper then be aware there is light noise from people enjoying the lake and gardens area on some evenings.
Lakeside Inn is what it says an Inn located by a lake in what is an URBAN LOCATION. There is pedestrian zone and narrow garden with trees between the Inn and lake. There is also a small patio area with tables/chairs at front of the Inn. The area is a popular location for Chinese holiday makers and family strolls, fishing and boating and there is a small stage area where soft music was played live some evenings. I would liken the Lakeside Inn's public area to a bistro bar/cafe which is visited by locals and westerners and is very popular with the young and young at heart. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and guests were of a broad age group and nationality All accommodation is very clean and well maintained with quality laminate or tiled flooring. My room was simply furnished with nice quality bed, bedside tables, desk/dressing table ,clothes rail ,armchair and bedside lights. There was a safe and also a lockable drawer with keys . The downstairs public area had a nice atmosphere and served small meals/snacks i.e. sandwiches,pizzas, French fries,dumplings and (my favourite) noodles. There is a very popular and smart Chinese - food restaurant close by and Starbucks within easy distance.(if you need). Jack the owner/host is world travelled & obviously loves the business.He is a warm and excellent host , anxious to create a welcoming and enjoyable stay. He communicates well with good English. He is able to arrange transfers and tours and offer advice. I loved my stay.

Great time in central location.
Bed was a bit hard....but its China!!
The manager was brilliant and went out of his way before we even arrived to arrange airport pick-up, tours and sent information about options to see around Guilin. The bar downstairs is great (and rare in China) and the location is perfect. Walking distance to markets and the lake with the sen & moon temples.

Sleeping above a pub.
This is not a hotel but a small pub with 3 rooms to rent on the second floor (No elevator!). Not recommended for people with heavy luggage or elderly people.
The owner was friendly and spoke good English. The room was clean.

Excellent location for an affordable price
Helpful staff who spoke English very well and helped us book the cruise on the Li river. Excellent location near the Twin Pagodas.

This place had such a nice, relaxed feel. I loved that it's in an alleyway, but when you get inside it's so beautiful! The staff was also super helpful and friendly. They even helped out my friend who wasn't even staying there. I'll definitely stay again on my next visit!
