Everybody loves Bruce and his chalet, so do us. Peacefully located at the back of police office but close enough to walk to Shuhe old town, this little chalet is surrounded by flowers and organic garden. Very homey and relaxing. Our bed is very large and comfortable, equipped with electrical blanket. The bathroom is clean and well-maintained. Everything is right... More

Our family (2 kids) stayed at Bruce Chalet in early April and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. As noted by many reviewers, Bruce was extremely helpful arranging excursions with helpful advise. The rooms were clean, comfortable, great views and reasonably priced. The chill at night was offset by the heating pad on the beds. Great hearty breakfast and very short walk... More

This place is about 10mins slow walk from Shuhe Old Town, but it offers the one of the best place to stay around Shuhe. It's quiet and offers the authentic local ambient for staying. Their service was awesome offering sincere advices and assistances to help us get around Lijiang. Their courtyard is fantastic and my 4yrs old girl never get... More

Bruce Chalet is the perfect place to sit back and relax after a crazy schedule of traveling. The rooms surround a charming garden in which I spent hours just kicking back to read. Our son and his cousin enjoyed kicking back and drinking beers. The staff is always warm, serving complimentary teas and snacks. When we were not feeling so... More

Perfectly situated outside the increasingly soulless centre of Lijiang, Bruce Chalet is ideal for those seeking a bit of peace and quiet, plus a stunning view of the snow-capped peaks of Jade Dragon mountain right in front of you. The adjacent village of Shuhe is also becoming as commercialised as Lijiang but on a smaller scale, while Lijiang itself is... More

Of all my travels around China I have not come across such great service. Bruce is all things 5 star in one person, curteous, helpful, friendly, professional and patient. The walls a little thin on the noise but comfortable and clean. Instead of modern new furniture it would have been nice to see Bruce maintain some of the old world... More

We stayed here three nights in late March. I chose it based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. My son and I took separate rooms (Snow View on second floor); his was a bit larger, mine had a nicer sun room. Both had wonderful views to the mountains. The rooms are comfortable, bathroom is fine, everything works. I was... More

This is the second visit to Bruce's chalet in a two year period. Each visit has been a great experience in lodging and staff friendliness. Bruce, the owner, make all arrangements for excursions that one wishes to take. Each morning, we are greeted by a full breakfast, which usually take one throught most of the day. Otherwise, it is a... More

Excellent service at The Bruce Chalet! I travelled with my elderly parents, and they were very sensitive to their needs. We love to chat with everyone here over breakfast every morning. We share stories, travel advise, and jokes. :) The location is perfect for us because we wanted a retreat that is not too far away from the bustling Lijiang... More

I really love the hostel and staffs here. Do not expect they will have everything you want even you have money but this is the real 5 stars hotel which the staffs provide all service by heart and friendship. The local breakfast which is home-made is very tasty, you gotta try their home-made bread and spring roll! and you pay... More
