This hotel is situated in the small town of Xizhou down narrow streets and close to the market. The hotel has well appointed rooms, very comfortable and has a very peaceful feel about it. The good was good and there was also a small bar.

Looking around while sitting on the terrace is breath-taking. The Linden Centre is surrounded on three sides by green garlic fields. Waking up you can smell it after a good rest on the wonderfully soft beds. The Linden Centre was a compound owned by a wealthy Chinese family. The architecture has been restored wonderfully yet you can still get a... More

The Linden Centre is not a hotel. It is an escape, a patch of ground untouched and untainted by worries, fears, distress, and anxiety. The staff are delightful and kind, interactive and wonderfully polite, and most importantly utterly trustworthy and leaving not a shred of uncleanliness in rooms. Breakfast choices vary and are all tantalizingly delicious, marrying Western morning meal... More

It was extremely relaxing to be out in the amazing weather with clean air which was a great relief from the pollution back in Shanghai. Being able to see the blue sky during the day and shining stars at night were some of the highlights of this trip. If you are lucky, you may see a shooting star or two... More

During my stay at the Linden Centre, the staff were amazingly hospitable and friendly. The beds are comfortable, food is local and made up of the freshest ingredients, and the receptionists are very helpful and whatnot. The location is quite convenient, for it is merely a five minute walk to the downtown area of this small town, where it is... More

Adding on to that, the food here is amazing as well. One of my favorite places at this hotel is the terrace. It is very comfortable there and has... More

A visit to the Linden Centre and the village of Xizhou is the experience of a lifetime. This facility was lovingly restored by Brian and Jeanee Linden and is a true pleasure for the eye. Beauty abounds throughout the three-courtyard design. Most impressive is the way the Lindens have embedded themselves in the Xizhou community and worked to preserve the... More

Just spent 6 days at The Linden Center as part of a culinary tour of Yunnan Province--what a wonderful vacation! This is a beautifully restored heritage courtyard building with charming rooms, excellent food and a staff that is accommodating beyond all expectations (thank you Jeanee, Juliet and Andrew). But understand clearly that this is not just a great small hotel;... More

After living at the Linden Centre for a month now, I feel that this place has truly become my home away from home. The staff are all very open and willing to be asked questions about the place. They food they make are impeccable, and the ingredients are always fresh and local from Xizhou. The terrace here provides an opportunity... More
