We were there for three days at the end of May. It was really a great experience for us. The whole inn was decorated as Tebtan style looks autentic and charictristic. All the staff are friendly and nice that they prepared us decent breakfast also it was not included. The room is a littlit bit small but with pretty big... More

Since the top 3 tripadvisor hotels in Shangrila are fully booked and after reading good reviews of this inn (not a hotel as such), we regretfully stayed here for two nights. First of all, all visitors to Shangrila should book their accommodations well in advance as the hotels can be easily fully booked. The cleaniness of this hotel is soso.... More

Dreaming of Shangri La, you probably imagine staying in a tibetan-style place like this. Very well situated in the old town. Despite of the cold winter weather and room, heating blanket and hot water in the shower were welcomed. Before arriving in China, I asked for someone to pick up me at the airport as I read hotel was difficult... More

Having read all the reviews, I failed to see that this hotel was in the heart of the Old Town, just a few yards away from the main square where every evening the traditional dancing gets underway. We stayed in one of the split level rooms on 3 different floors. Well furnished, but steep stairs especially to the mezanine level... More

Our cabbie helped us find this inn whose name in Chinese means red rock. We hauled our luggage along cobble stone road turned into a really dusty dirt road near the old town square to find this place. I had wanted to stay here because of the good reviews in Tripadvisor but the place was so decrepit and dirty, I... More

We stayed in this Inn at the end of our week long hiking tour in Yunnan. We really enjoyed staying in an accommodation that is autentic and has a real character. Rooms are small and neat. After hiking in the mountains and staying with locals for a week we really appreciated the electric heating blanket on the bed, warm shower... More

We chose this hotel by looking at reviews and were extremely surprised when our tour guide brought us there. It was a backpacking hotel with tiny room and very old looking bathroom without a heater. WE asked to be moved to a different hotel which was not adeqate but bettter than Ge Sang. May be they have better rooms on... More

Room and building had lots of character, along with many old town buildings. Staff were friendly. There's a nice view of the town from the roof area. Room was quite cold, but there were electric blankets on the beds, and a heating light in the bathroom. The Bathroom door did not shut properly, and one side only had a sheet... More

We chose the hotel by reading reviews but we were a bit disappointed! The location is fine since it is not directly in the crowd but it was difficult to find. The staff was friendly but that's it. It could be much nicer if the hotel focus on some details, but loose and wrong assembled faucets, broken toilets and lamps... More

We were staying in this guesthouse with two families (four rooms), which we chose based on the positive reviews. We were very disappointed! The rooms were dirty (bedbugs), apart from the friendly receptionist the staff was a disaster (very very slow, unfriendly, talked behind our back in Chinese thinking we would not understand, playing noisy video games in front of...
