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

The Inn called a taxi driver to airport to pick up us on our requested. So, we can easily get the way to the city even we arrived at mid-night. Upon arrived at the front gate of the city, a staff come up to take the luggages for us and leaded us to the inn through the cobblestone street. Then... 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

Superb 16 rooms Inn with fantastic local service. Great place to rejuvenate waking up everyday to the sound of birds and locals preparing for the day. Nightlife is very active in Lijiang so the it can get a little loud given the central location. Close to entrance but at a perfect location to be central. Not to mention the small... More

The staffs are very friendly and helpful. They make our stay even more pleasant. This hotel is located in the old city so you have to take your own luggage and expect to walk through the dark alleys. Lijiang is is really an awesome place to visit.
