The hotel has a great location. Very close, next to the old city. Rooms are situated in small villas like as in a resort. All surrounded by a beautiful garden. The staff is very friendly. Wifi has the right speed, though I had problems with my VPN connection. Good breakfast. So far only positive. The only negative experience was the... More

This resort is breathtaking. The view, the design, the rooms, absolutely fantastic. Lots of local touches in the design transport you to another world. Spacious rooms, nice gardening, and a fantastic location. Only breakfast buffet was a bit of a let down. But for an international chain this hotel is the best in Lijiang.

Replicas of ancient homes are walled in, so you do not have to actually see any locals, just live in replicas of their own lives before this chain gentrified their homeland. Now, the locals are living on the outskirts of town and are glorified in costumes by the hotels waitstaff. Skip this place and go to an alleyway hotel where... More

All the rooms are out of the main part of the hotel and we had a suite overlooking the Jade Dragon snow mountain. Room fabulous and as a club member we were really well looked after.

In our view the location is the best in LIjiang as it is on the edge of the old town which you access via a private door at the back of the resort. The beautiful architecture recreates the old Lijiang feel but with all the modern comfort. The rooms are located in 2-storey buildings, good replicas of the old houses... More

What a beautiful place it is! The location is unbeatable: right on the edge of the Old Twon. Our junior suite(Club Intercontinental room) was big and comfortable, with a bathtub on one end, toilet, stall, and closet the other, everything spic and span.

You know it's going to be a great hotel as soon as you step into the lobby and see the awesome Jade Dragon Snow Mountain framed in the floor to ceiling window. It is confirmed by the luxury room furnished Shangri-La style (1930's novel not the hotel chain) and the fantastic location adjoining the old town of Lijiang with its... More

The hotel is beautiful, and walking in the city is very pleasant. Trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge was easily arranged at Concierge desk. Lijiang is not as large as other cities we visited, but its setting with beautiful mountains in the distance is lovely. And a stream runs through its amazingly congested outdoor market. Finally, the trip to Tiger Leaping... More

The suites which we stayed in are situated close to the main building which makes moving around very convenient. The rooms are well-appointed with a good and practical layout that includes a passageway separating the living room from the bedroom to ensure optimal privacy when there are visiting guests. The bathroom is spacious enough to contain a large bath tub... More
