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 My room was a bit outdated with...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

this was not our part of our scheduled trip, but because of a horrible road accident that closed access to our original hotel, we had to stay here for one night. it was freezing and there was no heat. after asking them about the broken heat, they gave us a few extra blankets. the shower overflowed to the bedroom. i...

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....

This is a more traditional Chinese Hotel located in the “Old Town” part of Lijiang. If you want to experience living in the Chinese environment you have to stay here. The hotel is more than adequate though the rooms are a bit dated. The hotel Courtyards are a wonderful area to relax and coffee/tea is provided after 11.00 AM. Many... More

I haven´t see the other ones, so I´ll have to take the word of those who have. The rooms are spacious but not very practical - no wardrobes, no comfortable chair, no reading light. The king size bed was a combination of 2 beds with a small step in between due to the different heights, so it really ends up... More
