We had a three night stay here recently and came away fairly contended, though there was a nagging feeling that things could have been better with a little thought. The hotel grounds are stunning and although it is a long walk if your room is near the north gate there was really no other option in order for the hotel... More

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.

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
