A picturesque courtyard style boutique hotel, complete with a carp pond - reached after a steep climb up cobbled alleys and steps and set high above, but part of, Lijiang old town. Not too good for disabled people, nor even those with bad knees - and certainly the altitude could be felt. Excellent hospitality and service, with nothing too much... More

This is an absolutely boutique hotel with Chinese style of decoration. It is informal, classical and extremely good value. We family spent 4 nights there. Though simply furnished, the rooms were spick-and-span. The interior of yard is crammed with ancient furniture and works of art. There was a giril playing the zither from 9:00am to 10:00am every morning. The staff... More

I thought the location was perfect, right in the center of old town. The price seemed reasonable. The breakfast was simple but good. However I would not purchase again due to the price. Staff was very friendly and really wanted to make sure I enjoyed my stay. The hotel was able to arrange airport pickup and drop-off for a fee,... More

We had 3 nights at this lovely little hotel just off one of the main streets in beautiful Lijiang. It was so quiet and restful it was surprising.The staff were so kind and helpful - tea and biscuits every time we came in - and on our last day after booking out they let us stay in the hotel until...

the place is difficult to find but the hotel rang us to confirm our booking and arranged to have us picked up from the bus station. This was complimentary and very welcome. The manager also showed us to our rooms and made arrangements for our drop the next morning to the airport including a packed breakfast. So although we stayed... More

I stayed 5 nights in this hotel and it was to my satisfaction. Staff is helpful and servcie minded. Rooms are OK and the atmosphere is Lijiang-ish. The location is perfect for walks in the old town. Note that the old town is car free so you need a 10 minute walk to and from taxis. The hotel has a... More

There is no traffic within the old town of Lijiang so we were met by a porter with a bicycle cart who loaded our luggage in and we walked the 200 yards or so through the narrow streets to what looked like an even narrower street, through a doorway and into another world. A courtyard of koi pools, potted plants... More

This was our second stay at Zen Garden, and it didn't fail to delight. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, always on hand for a question and tea. It's a (relatively) quiet Oasis in the centre of the old town. Fab location. Only downside is bathrooms are tired.

This hotel is a great setting in a convenient part of the ancient town. We arrived from a train from Kunming very early in the morning, and when the taxi dropped us off, we were completely lost. they sent someone to pick us up from a side street. The staff at reception were always more than courteous, and always offering... More
