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.

In the heart of beautiful, historic Lijiang, this small venue was charming. The little lobby was a sweet place for breakfast and the staff were friendly and helpful. Wandering the stone paths and bridges over the waterways of old Lijiang and seeing the beautiful carved and painted buildings are visions I'lll never forget... It was the first week in October...

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and it couldn't have been better! The staff will help you with all you may need (and makes good tea for free). They also speak ok english! The rooms downstairs are quieter but upstairs you got a nice view over the old town. The breakfast is worth the 35Y. There is a good... More

We had a wonderful time at the Zen Garden Hotel in Lijiang. The staff is always ahead of your needs and speak english. The local culture is part of the hotel. The beautiful antique furniture that surrounds you is like a museum. Very close to old town, they also can organize trips for you. I recommand this hotel highly! You... More

My family and I visited Lijiang last week. We planned to stay at Zen Garden Lion Hill Yard but somehow ended up staying at Wuyi Yard instead. I guess that the design and decoration of both branches are not much different. The Wuyi yard branch is the tranquil and beautiful place though the room and the garden is not so... More

There was a bit of confusion at the start of our trip. The website provides the same phone number for both locations, so when the taxi driver called from the airport, they were directed to this location. Our reservation was at the other location. Since the hotel is in the old town, a hotel employee met us on the street.... More
