Me and my boyfriend have arrived to Bruce Chalet after staying 2 nights at Lijiang old town. The hotel located 7 min walk from Shuhe ancient town which is exactly like Lijiang old town but less crowded. Bruce, his wife and the staff are so nice and helpful. Bruce's wife is making excellent breakfast everyday, very recommended. Every time we... More

Very clean place, useful hints by the staff for activities (Tiger Leaping gorge) or shopping (I needed a jacket; I was not equipped for the cool evenings in October). Unfortunately I stayed only one night, arrived and left in the dark, so I could not appreciate their nice place and garden.

It's more of a family-run chalet. Bruce, wife, Bella n his staff, Julie, have been excellent host. Extremely friendly n helpful. Room is clean, sheets r clean, very 'homely'. Wi-Fi speed is excellent. Self-laundry is a big plus. It may lack some modern facilities of a 5-star hotel like gym, swimming pool, etc, but I don't feel it at all... More

As in the name this is a cottage-style chalet run as a B&B. It is not in Lijiang (good) but about 10-15 min walk from Shuhe old town, itself about 15-20 min drive to Lijiang. Modern comforts such as wi-fi, heated bed, heat-lamps in the shower and standby driver to airport, Lijiang or even Shuhe old town. Cozy, quiet, lovely... More

We found this treasure in Lijiang area. It was comfortable, beautiful, clean and was tops for customer service! Shuhe was a short walk away and a fun place to walk, shop and eat. In the evening in the square locals danced their traditional Naxi folk dances.....not for the tourists, but for their own enjoyment. Whatever we needed Julie had for... More

I like the location because it is admist the village and a short walking distance from Shuhe, a more charming town than Lijiang. The place and services are friendly, but unpretentious. Any shortfall is more than compensated by the cheerful and helpful disposition of the staff, especially Juli, the manager. I am planning to return next May/June. P/S: This place... More

The place is a short, scenic walk to Shuhe Old Town. Shuhe Old Town is a shopping area so if you are into shopping, Bruce Chalet is a good location. The hotel itself is pretty and has cute rooms. The internet works most the time and in most places - it's just slow. The big negative for me was I... More

Shuhe Old Town is a small and lovely place. We loved it more than Dali or Shaxi. It takes a 10 min walk from Bruce Chalet to the village. Unfortunately, we did not meet Bruce but Julie looked after us very well. The rooms are comfortable but the beds were (as in most of the guesthouses we stayed in China)... More

It was my third time to Lijiang. Dayan old town was busy and crowded, Shuhe was less crowded and commercial. The Bruce Chalet locates in the small village outside Shuhe old town, surrounded by farmers' families and farms, perfect for a peaceful holidays. The room is big with huge double bed, with beautiful snow mountain view. The staffs are very... More

I enjoyed my stay here at Bruce Chalet. Julie and other staff were very friendly and I certainly like Shuse over Lijiang. Especially during the summer holiday Lijiang just gets to crowded, Shuse as well but a lot less. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to Shuhe, make sure you take the road on the left, otherwise you might end... More
