"Sheraton Guilin- International Visitors' choice" Sheraton Guilin Hotel Tip by wander23

Sheraton Guilin Hotel, Guilin: 830 reviews and 9 photos

We stayed for 3 nights at the Sheraton Guilin this summer. The newly renovated hotel was both comfortable and modern. The reception staff was extremely helpful too. Though their command of English was not quite up to expectations, they tried their utmost to understand and attend to our requests. The morning buffet breakfast was average as the selections were quite limited.
Hotel guests at best should seek out the concierge for taxi or transport needs. Most of the time, they were able to assist with familiar drivers and advise on the reasonable fares. We made a mistake when we flagged taxis along the streets. On two occasions, we were disappointed. The first one left us stranded at the Reed Flute Cave ( even though we agreed on the return trip and fare) and the second taxi was unhappy that we were not interested in visiting the sites/shopping recommended by him. He didn't drop us at the hotel doorstep;citing traffic direction/congestion as an excuse. We walked almost a few hundred meters back. I understand later that they do get petrol vouchers as incentives from the various attractions, which probably explained why they were ready to abandon us once they find the next lucrative customer.
