Our plane was delayed departing Shanghai so, by the time we arrived to Lijiang it was way past midnight. My husband called the hotel to find out how to get there since the taxis at the airport refused to take us. Zang Zhi Mei was wonderful at giving us instructions on how to get to old town (she even arranged... More

I spent 10 days/9 nights there this July, and would like to recommend this small hotel to anyone looking for a great experience in the Lijiang Old Town. It's not new but is being cared for in great shape by a most friendly staff team. The location is impeccable - in the center of the old town but in a... More

Everything about this hotel was perfect. The location is in the middle of the old town, but because it is in a side street there isn't much noise from the bars. The airport pickup was convenient. Our bags were transported through the old city to our room. The hotel itself is very very beautiful. There are antiques, trees, fish. We... More

There are no fake smiles here. The staff seems genuinely please to see you, every time they see you. The taxi driver phoned ahead from the airport and I was met at the entrance to the old town by a man who carried my bags to the hotel and there I was met at the entrance by a member of... More

We spent three weeks in China, and this was one of our favourite towns. Lijang is quaint and very busy with Chinese tourists. The narrow twisting stone paved streets climb steeply away from the delightful market square up a hill. In the other direction they slope gradually down following the various water courses to the other end of this delightful... More

Very nice mansion with traditional wooden walls, charming interior courtyard and reception room well decorated. It is in a quiet street, but very close to the Market Square, center of the ancient city. The staff, ethnic Naxi, is very attentive and polite. The receptionists speak basic English, but you can understood it. Lijiang allows an excellent combination purchase crafts, local... More

Delightful small hotel with very personal service. Built around a central garden in the traditional style of a Chinese Homestead. Very pleasant stay both in term of the overall feel of the place, the garden, but it was the friendly, personal hospitality that made the stay so special. In the old town of Lijiang, providing say access to the part... More

In the World Heritage old city of Lijiang which is visited by many tourists it was a delight to find such a wonderful place to stay. Originally an old family home it has been turned into a small boutique hotel with lovely furnishings and extremely helpful,knowledgeable and friendly staff. We stayed before and after going to the Tiger Leaping Valley... More

We stayed two nights. The hotel is very good. Modest basic rooms, small. very good location, in the old town, quiet, they try really hard to serve you. Very nice people. Considering the low price, it is an excellent choice.
