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

Bruce Chalet is very charming. It's on the outskirts of Shuhe old town. From the beginning to the end of our stay we were looked after very well by the manager Julie, she made us feel at home and even helped when I felt unwell. We stayed in a second floor room with a double bed and a private balcony... More

First, this property should not be listed under Lijiang, but Shuhe, as has been noted. That said, Shuhe is wonderful. As for the hotel, it is good value for the money but be prepared for dogs barking constantly all day and most of the night. You are in a village and many homes have dogs for protection, so they bark... More

We choose this address because everybody said if was very good. And they were right! This is an excellent place and Bruce is very helpful. Nice atmosphere! We didn't have to take a taxi because Bruce brought us to the next village Baisha for visiting.

i left the ancient city hoping to return again to meet the people in Bruce Chalet. Other than the usual modern amenities, it's quite a classic Chinese inn. I love the homey deco. There were not many rooms so it's like a traditional Chinese big family home. With a free & easy travel spirit we set off quite unprepared. From... More

The helpful English speaking owner has plenty of local knowledge and even collected us from the bus station when the taxi drivers refused .The hotel is not in Lijiang but in the nearby town of Shuhe, a taxi ride from Lijiang.There is a delightful courtyard garden and shady verandahs where tea and fruit are served on arrival. Beds are huge... More

The Bruce Chalet is one of the best places I have ever stayed in during our 6 months in China. I have a small family (2 adults, 1 toddler) and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a ground floor room, which was clean spacious and accommodating. This is relative to most of our trips, in which we try... More
