My son and I vacationed in Lijiang this winter and stayed 3 nites at the Intercontinental hotel on the edge of the Old Town. The facilities are wonderful and the location is perfect. The staff was attentive and worked very hard to make sure that everything was perfect. This hotel is an oasis. I hope to stay here again in... More

The Crowne Plaza Ancient Town has all the amenities you would expect of a five-star hotel, plus one big advantage. It is literally on the doorstep of the old quarter, with its cobblestoned streets, running streams and exotic local craft shops. You slip through a gate in the hotel wall, staffed 24-7 by a sentry who unlocks it for you,... More

Still freezing and looking for respite, our guide in Lijiang suggeste we look at the Crown Plaza, as she believes they have "air conditioning" Chinese verbiage for "heat"! We spent the full day sightseeing in sub freezing weather and were ready for a "warm" even temperate at this point, room. The guide made the reservations for us and negotiated a... More

Stayed for five nights at the end of the 2014, the hotel offered much better than expected environment inside and outside our room, and the staffs are courteous, proactive and helpful. It is situated in a very convenient location, next to an ancient town where you can find eateries and shops easily. Things can be improved included cleanliness of the... More

It was announced that starting from 1 Jan 2015, there'll be free WiFi throughout the bustling old town where many restaurants,... More

I pondered if I should score it by comparison to just Chinese hotels, or to other hotels in Asia and the world... Decided for the later, and gave it "only" four dots. Let me say it is an excellent hotel, the king room deluxe was about 60 square metres, and very well appointed, the pillows comfortable, very clean etc. The... More

Stayed here with family for 4 days 3 nights. Hotel looks the right part since the old town is located next to it. Very convenient to visit the old town through the side door. Security guards will check if you have a room key before you enter, so its good to know that you are in safe hands. Had a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights 24-26th Dec 2014. It was a very pleasant experience as the first 2 hotels 5* that I stayed in Shilin and Kuming were a bit of let down.
