Lovely hotel, I stayed up there for three nights, room was very comfortable and clean facing to sown mountains. Breakfast was really good, huge variety of western, Asian and local food with brief Cantonese dim sum. I used the buffet on the second day of my stay, worth of money and a great deal of food variety. Service was good... More

This review is a bit overdue ! So here goes ! Now I am NOT a great fan of Chinese hotels - so when I booked Guanfang I was taking a risk. I wanted to stay in a villa rather than a room as it was a longish 10 day stay and I didn't want to be cooped up !... More

A nice hotel with butler service and breakfast prepared in your own private unit. Rooms weren't as big as a typical 5 star hotel in China. However, it was still comfortable. As the hotel is quite big, you will need to request for transport to & fro the main lobby. Overall, this is the best hotel throughout the whole Yunnan... More

We stayed in the tower building, which was nice (so please be clear when you're booking, maybe use a Chinese-speaking travel agent to confirm your reservation in the tower instead of a village unit), but could use a few, very inexpensive updates to significantly improve the rooms -- things such as a plastic shower curtain that needs to be replaced,...

I'm staying at the village unit. Freaking smelly and dirty! The shower drain is clogged. A/c isn't working. Teapot try is dirty. Bathroom is dirty. Lounge chair is dirty. Bed is super hard. If you have heavy luggages, good luck, no elevator, you need to carry it yourself. If I could, I would pack my bags and leave immediately.

This is a very belated respinse but we do apologize for the bad stay you had back in 2013. We did take note of your comments and in 2013 we started refurbishing our rooms and villas. All our rooms and villas are now refurbished and in modern decor with all international level amenities and facilities. Also we offer full butler... More

We were here for a conference. This high-rise and additional block buildings with more rooms has a wonderful airy lobby. Assistance from the front-desk staff was spotty. Most don't speak much English, but I encountered one or two that excelled and were extremely helpful. Beds were comfortable and the rooms (I had a room in the tower) were spacious and... More

We stayed at the tower block at downtown Lijiang at 966 Shangri-la Avenue. Blooming cherry blossoms lined the streets in front of us. This hotel impresses us by their spacious room and value for money (they even throw in a free breakfast!). We were given a king size corner room which was quite spacious even though we only booked and... More

The hotel has a large area, with many individual townhouses accessible by the golf cars. It is like the resort style in cuba and some caribbean countries, though now very much chinese style and taste. Each house has 2 floors and each floor has 2 rooms. So there are 8 of us in a group tour that live in one... More

We stayed at the Guanfang Hotel for 2 nights early April with our two children aged 6 and 8. We had two connected rooms. The rooms were a little dated but well furnished with tea/coffee makers, tv, robes, fresh fruit, plenty of towels, etc. The breakfast buffet had a large selection of asian dishes with some breads and pastries as...

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of our group tour to Lijiang. We stayed at the highrise main building.
