Having stayed at several banyantree properties, I must say this particular one at Lijiang is very well run. The staff are well-trained. I arrived feeling dizzy n a little nauseous. A staff told me it is probably due altitude sickness (Take this condition seriously please) n immediately served me a warm cup of ginger tea. N it helped me almost... More

Really disappointed with the experience. It is not worth the money. We spend 2 nights there for a quick getaway. While the villa with the spa pool was nice and quiet, the food and service was really 3 star and below. The package was a Romance package, and the total bill came to CNY 9138, including a bottle of EVIAN... More

Dear Dancan118, We read with regret the disappointing experience at Banyan Tree Lijiang. Unfortunately for you, during your stay we had a very high occupancy with families due to the school holidays and obviously with many children. We truly empathize your sentiments about the noisy breakfast which certainly was not conducive for your expectations of a quite stay. We have... More

I think all of the staff in the hotel were very nice,they smiled to me and gave me their best service.I could feel that some of them serviced me what i want before i told them,so that they gave me some surprise. I will choose Banyan Tree if I go to Lijiang in the future. Thanks for all the staffs.

The receiving of guest from the front desk was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well positioned as they allocated a mountain view on the second floor. Waking up each morning overlooking the famous Jade Dragon snow mountain was amazing. The mountain looks different each morning and evening. The service standards: not really up to par to the other...

This was our first stay in a Banyan Tree and it was a great experience. First we were escorted to our room which was lovely, only to look out over our balcony to see and hear major noise from a construction site next door.
