As our first experience in Yunnan, we couldn't have done better. The inn arranged a driver pick-up at the Lijiang airport-it was seemless, and important to have this available, since taxis at night looked slim, and Chinese taxi drivers need the Chinese character address, which we did not have. The driver has to park on the road, since vehicles are... More

My friend and I stayed 5 nights in this beautiful hotel right in the middle of Lijiang Old Town and we loved everything about it. The view from our room was amazing, the beds were comfortable, the garden was beautiful and the breakfast was great! One of the best things about the hotel was the staff. We were very happy... More

This is my first time visiting Lijiang Old Town with my folks and my American husband and in-laws (I am Chinese). This place is situated in Lijiang Old Town and is very close to all the fun streets, food and the squares. We had four rooms upstairs overlooking the courtyard, and on the balcony we had a great view of... More

We LOVE the Zen Garden in Li Jiang. It is in the very heart of the old city. Right outside the front door of the hotel is a small park with seating that overlooks the stream. When we stayed it was cold (Dec) and we had the thickest blankets I have ever seen on our beds PLUS electric blankets under... More

Can not understand why this hotel is so highly rated on trip advisor. We arrived late one night ( supposedly for a 4 night stay) to be welcomed with tea and biscuits and then rushed into a dire room...and I mean dire. It was tiny - not enough room to leave a suitcase open - had to be closed and... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It was lovely. It is right in the heart of the old town. 10 steps and you are I. The middle of all the shops/restaurants/flowers.... Yet the hotels has its privacy and tranquil atmosphere. Whenever you get in after a tour, they'll offer you tea and tasty sesame biscuits as wellas oranges.... More

We really enjoyed this boutique hotel. The location is ideal but requires the ability and desire to walk a ways to get to it. At least the walk is interesting! Loved the view of the temple, especially when it was lit at night and the proximity to lovely shops and restaurants. The gardens are truly beautiful; the staff attentive and... More

A bijou of a hotel. The communal rooms are filled with lovely traditional furniture and there is a general atmosphere of serenity - right down to the small pond with koy carp and gentle fountain; desk for practising Chinese calligraphy and the chatty Minah bird at breakfast. Rooms are fairly basic but very clean. Ask for a room on the... More

This is our second visit to zen garden 1 (Wuyi) the first being 8 years ago. Whilst Linjiang has got louder & brasher, zen garden remains unchanged & as tranquil as ever. Zen garden is an old courtyard house within the original old town but far enough away to avoid most of the noise of Lijiang (ground floor rooms 2-9... More

Very Nice hotel in the old Town of lijiang, away from the crowd. The reception is very friendly and warm. The lady is super kind as well as the staff. The rooms are a little bit small, but nevertheless very ok. The breakfast is great. This is a hotel where you get pampered. Very happy being in this hotel and... More
