A hotel within easy walking distance from Lijiang old town, that is in beautiful traditional style. Room on the small side, but not a real problem. No air conditioning (which was not needed when we stayed) and no room safe. Music from the Lijiang bars is a noise problem in the rooms, but this (more of less) ceases at 23.30.... More

This hotel does a good job providing a rural, rustic experience to the foreign traveller, but it is a bit too basic indeed. Decent bathroom with a hairdryer along with free WiFi and the nice touch that are homemade cookies do not compensate for the lack of a kettle, which I deem absolutely indispensable in every hotel room. You can... More

We stayed here for two nights. On arrival we were greeted with tea and biscuits. In fact every time we came back to the hotel we were offered tea and biscuits. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were small but comfortable. The bathrooms were small but adequate. The position was fabulous as it was an easy walk... More

We stayed at the Zen Garden Hotel Wuyi Yard for 4 nights in September. Since we entered the Hotel, we felt welcome and very special thanks to everyone working there. Muli, Yang Zhimei and Deng were fantastic during our whole stay; very attentive, sweet, and most of them speak English :) The Hotel is perfectly well located in the Ancient... More

Linjiang Old Town is a must see and that mean staying in the Old Town. Zen Garden's rooms had very comfy beds, great showers, fluffy towels and reasonable free internet. Room very small, but this reflects its original home layout, not a problem for us. Very friendly staff use to catering for overseas visitors. Constant tea and home made biscuits.... More

Zen garden provides friendly welcoming service with clean accommodation and tasty but simple breakfast. Highly recommended with great location but set back from the noise and lively lanes of old town .

I stayed at the Zen Garden for 3 nights recently and agree with the positive comments. It's an artistic, clean, 16-room guest house in a great location (a secluded area very close to the old town's center). The staff are really friendly and speak enough English. The rather small rooms has comfortable beds, pillows and white linens. The small bathroom... More

We loved this place and the staff were excellent, gave me ginger tea and an extra duvet when I got a touch of altitude sickness. setting is charming with great views from the balcony around the upper floors. we like the little cobbled streets leading up to the hotel but were grateful for the guide's help with bags. spend some...
