So I was staying up the road at another hostel and randomly stopped in here for some help, directions and to find someone who spoke English. I feel the need to review because the owner was incredibly helpful. Even though I was not a guest, he helped us book a private driver out to the Tiger Leaping Gorge since all... More

Great location--easy to get to from the train station and right by Old Town. The staff was very kind and helpful, even when we got them out of bed at 5 am to let us in. They helped us sign up for a day trip to Tiger Leaping Gorge, which was just what I wanted (I don't need to spend... More

We loved our stay here - actually this has been the best place we have stayed during our 1 month in China. Very fair price for double room, and our room had a small terrace with wonderful views of the mountains. Breakfast can easily be made vegan! Staff is english speaking and very very kind and helpful.

Great value, amazing views from the two best rooms, friendly service from George and Nicolas, and great value - we booked through Lijiang Guides. Get the view rooms for the best views over town for sunrise sunset and night time.

We stayed in the new Garden Inn. They have fabulously friendly staff that are extremely informative. They speak perfect English and were totally helpful. We stayed in a private room, and loved our clean and modern room complete with TV, air conditioning, kettle, lamps, and a bit of furniture. The ONLY thing we did not like about this place was...

The man at the desk is really helpful and speaks fantastic english, something not very usual in china. The location is also fantastic. We went to a shared room and is was very clean also. If i had to go to lijiang again, i would definitely return to this hostel.

I stayed at the old Garden Inn on my last visit to Lijiang a year ago, and was a tad apprehensive about the fact it had relocated to just outside the Old City. I chose the new place because of the people who owned and managed the old one were so helpful. Their attention to service, and the comfort of... More

Nice new place, located on hill overlooking old town, amazing views at night. Kind, English speaking staff - especially George and Nicolas - and quite reasonaable breafkasts too. HIghly recommended. Get room with a view - worth extra.

This was a bright spot in our five-week journey across China. Technically a "hostel," but we had a private room that was nicer than most hotels we stayed in elsewhere. Almost new, very clean, set high on a hill above the old town of Lijiang, and thankfully outside the crowds of the old city. Staff speaks good English, is friendly... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here four nights total, on either side of our hike in Tiger Leaping Gorge. The staff were incredibly helpful every step of the way, from giving directions to our cab driver over the phone when we arrived, to helping us plan Tiger Leaping Gorge, to booking onward travel to Kunming. They were so nice and... More
