the attention to details, the kindness of the staff, the yummy breakfast, the VIEW from the balcony...so many wonderful touches. Clean with no smells, which for China is remarkable. Lovely tasteful antique furnishings, garden pond. Coffee. Simply the loveliest 2 day stay.

At first interaction on, our hotel staff arranged for a seem less transfer from airport to inn. Our reception included many local treats, including local wine. Rooms (two stays) were both lovely- one with a traditional honeymoon bed... It's like a pagoda! Showers and western toilets were a welcome reprieve. Staff could not be better! Great people who bend over... More

The hotel is near the center of Si Fang street square.It's about 30 meters to get to the main street,but you will find it not only very quiet,but also enjoyable.The staff is friendly with all your needs,and with great patience.

The rooms (we had 2 rooms) were clean and comfortable with nice views over the Old Town. Its not 5 star but very comfortable and in a nice area of the Old... More

Hotel is located near the central Si Fang street square. The only difficulty is getting to the hotel for the first time. But once you locate it, the hotel's central location serves as a good base to explore the old city. The staff is friendly and helpful, and also a good source of info for tourists.

Very nicely located and not easy to find cosy retreat in the lively old city. The rooms in the upper floor have a great view. Very personal and friendly staff, absolutely helpful. Rooms neat, nice and clean. Nice courtyard. The only minor is hearing the loud music of the bars, which is due to central location.

Arriving at the Zen Garden Hotel we were greeted with fresh tea, oranges and sunflower biscuits - all local, perfectly presented and much enjoyed. What a sanctuary the hotel is - quiet and traditional with amazing views towards the mountains but still slap bang in the heart of busy and colourful Lijiang Old Town. We had heavy rain for two...

I stayed for two nights in the Zen Garden Inn (Wuyi Yard location) in November 2014. As with most hotels in Dayan Town (old town), it can be a little hard to find at first- it's down a side-street a little ways from the main square. This turns out to be an advantage, because it helps keep the hotel quieter.... More

From the time I booked the hotel, the owner kept me informed and answered all my requests ie rooms on the upper floor. The receptionists, Xiao Yang and Mu Lan were excellent in meeting all my requests. I asked for late departure for my friends and they allowed them to be in the lobby till 7 pm. They also arranged...
