We stayed in October 2013 in a twin share room which was very clean but reasonably small. Bedding was clean and the room had a fridge, kettle and Chinese tea available. As per most of my China trip I always carried some Nescafe sachets for that coffee hit in the morning :). Toilet was a sit down type in the... More

I stayed at the Sanhe for the third time in June 2013 because I liked the Naxi-style courtyard, the clean room with wooden floor, and the location in the old town but only at a short walking distance from the taxi area. But I noticed a decline in services: for example, no soap or shampoo and no more free breakfast... More

When you arrive at the outskirts of Lijiang Ancient Town you are met by the hotel staff who will transport your luggage and guide you to the hotel. This is very convenient as no vehicles are allowed on the old cobbled streets and lanes of the UNESCO listed old town and it is easy to get lost on your first... More

We were on a three week tour of China and were supposed to be staying in 4 star hotels. Our Chinese tour agents had booked us into a lot of good hotels but something went wrong with this one. If I was 18 again and was backpacking it might have just been acceptable. The door key was a padlock. There... More

This is my 3rd trip to Lijiang and I love this place. This time I came with my hubby, my 3 years old boy, my parents, brother inlaw and family. I decided that we are gg to stay in the ancient town to experience some thing different so I booked Sanhe. Due to flight delayed, we arrived pass mid night.... More

Stayed here for just one night on my way to Shangrila. The location of the hotel is simply perfect. It is walking distance to the town center and has all the restaurants and bars nearby. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The beds are really big. They do not provide any soaps or shampoos so you need to car your... More

We stayed here for 5 nights after our trek in tiger leaping gorge. We could walk into the streets of old town Lijiang directly fron here and come back to relacx when the noise and activity got too much. It was nice but nothing ancient or old town about it - very new. We had a suite which was too... More

We stayed here for three nights in total. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. It is centrally located in Lijiang Old Town so everything is close. It is, however, a good respite from the crowds. The courtyards are beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed relaxing at the hotel and visiting with each other. Only annoyance was the lack... More

This place blended old style courtyard with clean and comfortable modernized rooms. It is in the heart of Lijiang Ancient City old town and has lots of charm. Daily breakfast is included provided by a cafe around the corner. This is a quiet oasis from shopping, tea tasting, and people watching. They had reasonable rates and we had a small... More

I love this one. Lijiang Sanhe Hotel is really the place to be when you want to enjoy a relaxed, clean and atmospheric Chinese Hotel in Yunnan for a really afforable price. It is not a backpacker hotel, but not luxuary neither. Like most hotels and shops in Lijiang, this building was rebuilt after the 1996 earthquake in the traditional... More
