The hotel is designed like most in Shuhe, with a courtyard and rooms on the first and second floor. It has a certain charm with the carved wood, grey tiles and other very nice details. But this one is very well located, next to a water stream, facing south, between the dynamic center and the hills where you can wander... More

The beauty of this Inn and it's owners is matched by the same beauty of this wonderful ancient town! Without telling me she was going to do this the owner met me at the bus station when I first arrived and arranged (and paid for) a taxi to take us from Lijiang to Shuhe. We then walked to the Inn...

A great guest house, beautifully appointed rooms away from the noisy night life. The owner looked after us very well. She speaks enough English to be able to help with most requests and the rest we managed with sign language Would definitely recommend.

The owner accompanied the taxi driver personally to meet us at the airport and escort us to Sleepy Inn. Our room overlooked the little courtyard, decorated with plants and a small fish pond. Beyond the garden wall we heard the soothing sound of the little stream running adjacent to the cobbled road in front of the guest house. The bed... More

Stayed there nearly a week during Christmas break. The place was a bit cold, but the warm welcome from the owner makes us forget the weather. You become part of the family during your stay. Location is nice, because not too far from the small tourist area in Shuhe, but far enough to avoid the noisy surrounding. Owner was very... More

Staying at Sleepy Inn 3 nights, we had a lovely stay here. We shared a great time together with my family and Li, the new owner. Li is always checking if you feel comfortable at her place. The beds are the best that we had in China so far. The reading place is always open, with free different teas that... More

Like all of us, you probably go to Lijiang looking for a taste of ancient China, only to find an bustling old town full of Chinese tourists: shopping, eating, partying. If you go to the other side of the new town of Lijiang how ever, you will find an old village called Shuhe. This is a well-preserved small town along... More

We only stayed here one night on our travels trough China. It was our nicest room so far, and the beds (and pillows) are devine! The room wasn't really a budget choice (¥298 per night) but it has free breakfast and a washing machine that can be used free of charge (they provided the suds :)). The manager/owner Jody was...

We had a lovely stay here. The two girls who run the guesthouse, Lucy and Jody, were great - doing everything from killing spiders to booking us train tickets. The location of the property is both a plus and a minus - Shuhe is a lovely old town (even nicer than Lijiang in our opinion) with lots to see and... More

My daughter & I stayed here in Feb 2011, after a car trip, by the old road from Dali, organised by the Linden Centre- our previous stop- which was a great idea (Budhist sites, minority villages, first bend of the Yangtze etc.) . We arrived at the hotel in brilliant sunshine, but the weather soon turned for the worse &... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Sleepy Inn Lijiang is centrally located in the Shuhe Ancient Town of Lijiang. Sleepy Inn Lijiang was converted from a Naxi minority family’s house and garden. All the buildings reflect the rich fabric of the locale through their design and furnishings. Sleepy Inn Lijiang has the only swimming pool with water coming from the snow mountain. It overlooks a stream across the village and tall trees to the front and a landscaped garden and village houses to the back. Shuhe Ancient Town used to be an important hub on the old Tea-Horse Road. This historic town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 for its multi-ethnic charm, historical milieu and architectural landscape. Do you want to start a day from a well-prepared breakfast and a cup of tasty coffee? It is not easy to find them in the other properties but our staff will get them ready before you wake up. For the whole day, snacks and casual foods are always available whenever you are hungry. There are many things you can experience within the property - relaxing yourself besides the swimming pool, enjoying sunshine and fresh air in the garden, reading books or drinking a cup of tea on the terrace, or just doing nothing with a laid-back way of living, etc. In addition, Sleepy Inn Lijiang features a range of organized and do-it-yourself activities. You can take a bicycle to tour the surrounding villages and farms along the way to Jade Dragon Ancient Town. You can hike through Jade Dragon Snow Mountain aor the Tiger Jumping Gorge of Jinshajiang River. You can ride a horse in the flowered alpine pasture. Don’t want to go far? You still have an option of watching the popular performance of Ancient Naxi Music Instruments Playing. We look forward to your stay at Sleepy Inn Lijiang! ... more   less
