If you expect a normal business hotel this will not meet your expectations. However, if you would like to experience a lovely Chinese hotel this is perfect. Small court yards, traditional interior and design. Ginger tea, coffe and cookies served for free. Location is also in the quiet part of the old town (important if loud bar music is not... More

The toilet in our bathroom has a really weird smell. The hotel is rather old and the floor of our room is shaky. Judging from the hotel's star level, the experience is unsatisfying. By the way, the breakfast is bad, too.

This Hotel was not great...but good. Best was its location within a few minutes on foot from the South Gate. Since cars are not permitted in the Old Town this can be important. This part of town also seemed more quiet with less tourists compared to more famous entrance near the water wheel. My room was a bit outdated with... More

Good location in old town Lijiang, surrounded by restaurants and artisan shops. Good: they have central heat (some) and free WiFi. They have a night club if you're into that, with live entertainment (loud, but not a problem in our room towards the back). Not so hot: almost zero English spoken. Rooms a little small, few amenities. Like everything in... More

In the heart of Old Lijiang, very roomy and clean. Breakfast is a bit limited especially if you are not in for the traditional chinese breakfast dishes. Staff hardly speak any English. Internet in rooms not so reliable.

We spent 3 wonderful nights in this hotel and have to say how very satisfied with the room and the hotel in general. We did realize that the disco at the front of the courtyard hotel would be noisy at night so we chose a room in the far back. which was more than we expected in amenities and style.... More

Carpet you wouldn't walk on barefoot. No Internet. Door hung so you can see light around the edges. Sketchy rigged electric extension. Noise from hall. Mosquitoes in the room and window that leaves gaps when closed (but beautiful window) no safe in room, some lovely staff who are Naxi people, some unfriendly ones who are not, located near ancient city....
