Like many 'courtyard' hotels behind a simple door a delightful hotel opens up set round a small court yard. Staff are extraordinarily helpful and the quiet rooms have everything you need. Some are smaller than others (the Chinese 'four poster' bed is a challenge for couples @6ft) hoever the twins are lovely. You are in the middle of the old... More

It's a wonderful place with very friendly staff, offers good breakfast and tea with biscuits whenever you come in. Excellent location. The only thing to cope with was the very cold room since there is no heating. Room is rather ascetic but you probably will not be there much else than night-time since the Old Town itself is just so... More

The only fault with this hotel is that the rooms are somewhat compact ... beautiful common areas, an incredibly helpful staff, good breakfasts and a very high level of service. If you can cope with a compact well designed room, then this is perfection. Thououghtly recommended.

The hotel is very close to the main streets of old Li Jiang and therefore ideally situated, but what makes it special is the friendliness of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are small but comfortable. The view from the upper floor, over the rooftops is stunning.

A really beautiful little hotel in a traditional Naxi courtyard house. Took me a while to find it (but that was mainly as I was tired after having to get up at 0300 to fly to Lijiang), but once located (near the Daxi bridge, not too far from the Square Market ) it was easy to find again. Was met... More

Zen Garden Wuyi Yard is in the Old Town and as such the first thing you have to do is pay the 80 yuan entrance fee, however this ticket lasts for a week and includes Black Dragon lake. The hotel is in a quiet alleyway, a number of rooms spread around a central courtyard with beautiful old bonsai trees. The... More

The Zen Garden hotel is a beautiful place in the middle of the old town. From there it's really easy to reach all the interesting places of Lijiang. The rooms are overlooking a beautiful relaxing garden. Our room was quite small and basic but very clean. The girl running the hotel is simply amazing. She was there for everything we... More

The hotel decor was spot on, the rooms were a OK, but the people! The people who worked there made everything perfect. From the lady playing the Chinese instrument in the morning as a breakfast wake up call to the porter who met me on the street and guided me to the hotel, to the AMAZING lady behind the front...
