We spent 3 night at Zen Garden. The hotel is located in the heart of Lijiang near to Square Place. The hotel is in a small street away from the bustle of the city. Zen Garden is well named because the decaration and the courtyard are zen decoraed. The rooms are simple but very clean. Our rooms were at the... More

Great hotel with a fantastic service situated in the center of the city. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable, with a quiet atmosphere. The staff (Yang Zhi mei) gives us an exquisite service everytime.

Set in the old town, accessible to shops, cafes and restaurants but still away from the bustle, once you enter into the hotel. I wouldn't call the rooms luxurious but it has everything you need, being clean, with tea and lots of little snacks available. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it's all tastefully and traditionally decorated. A... More

Our flight to Li Jiang was 6 hours late, so we landed after midnight and transport from the airport was challenging. The staff at Zen Garden arranged for taxis to meet us at the bus stop, and personally delivered us to the hotel around 2am. The tea and snacks were ready when we arrived! Very relaxing place to stay.

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
