We stayed three nights at an upper floor room. Basic accomodation, as we expected, but very friendly staff (father and son). The son picked us up from the bus station after receiving only refusals from the taxi drivers. Both were very helpful with finding a cheap ride back to Lijiang stopping at Tiger Leaping Gorge. From the terrace you have... More

News Flash stayed June 17,18..old town burnt down in Jan 2014. Fire came up to Kersang's front door. Old town is now a dirt lot with underground utilities being installed. This is a youth hostel type of accomodation not hotel. The caretaker is owners father. Nice guy. He works hard and long hours to keep things going. No english but... More

We had an amazing stay at Kersan's Relay Station! The welcoming was super friendly, the rooms are beautifully decorated... Surely take time to have an aperitif on the rooftop terras and enjoy the amazing view!

Did you ever see a place with a lot of very positive reviews, but perhaps as many negative ones? We usually tend to give a hotel the benefit of the doubt and discount the negative reviews as the result of a guest's bad luck or the product of habitual whining. We did that in this case and learned, to our... More

The location is very nice and quiet (which can be an issue in Shangrila), but the rest is rather basic. The previous night we spent at a high end hotel in Diqin, so we didn't feel "dirty enough" to shower... the breakfast room was very nice, with a great view. But overall rating for this guesthouse remains average.

We arrived late one winter evening and the Tibetan Uncle picked me up from the main square in Shangri-la. I was really hppy that I could find a place like that on the internet, for most Guesthouses are closed in Shangri-la during the off aeson time in winter. My room was on the second floor and really spacious, heated blakets... More

Well, I got to know this place through a leaflet provided to me by a staff in the Chalet where I stayed in Lijiang. I had no idea this place was under "B&B" and not "Hotels" in Tripadvisor. Since I had no idea where to stay and only arranged the trip to Shangr-la last minute, I trusted the reviews. Although... More

My wife & I stayed at Kersang's Relay Station during our trip to Yunnan in mid October and generally we found it only average at best, despite the rave reviews seen here. This was our first time in Shangri-La and the bookings were made by our agent and guided from reviews we had read about in Tripadvisor. Maybe it was... More

Kersangs was by far the best guesthouse I stayed at in Yunnan, and one of the best in China. The place is oozing with character and the view from the roof is pretty spectacular. The beds were cozy and comfortable and the shower was amazing! Super hot water and great water pressure with enough room in the bathroom that the... More

Had a wonderful time in Shangri-La due in large part to the stay at Kersang's. We stayed 3 days, 2 nights at the Guesthouse. The manager, Tenzin (she's Tibetian) and her boy-friend, Hendrick (he's German) were extremely hospitable and helpful with all of our needs. The accommodations are clean and comfortable, the facilities are attractive and more than adequate. A... More
