Stone Lee was a perfect guide for our 3-day-stay in Shangri-La: A lot of insider-knowledge, perfect English and a good sense of humor. He picked us up at Lijiang Airport and drove us around during the next two days with a tour back to Lijiang via Tiger Leaping Gorge. Perfect organized! We really enjoyed his cosy hotel and the very... More

We spent 3 days at the Guesthouse which had clean and nice rooms and a perfect location to explore the city. Only the matress was a little too hard and one need to wait a couple of minutes for the hot water. The breakfast was rather simple ( eggs, toast and jam) but we had a warm welcome and John,... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the hotel! The room was clean and it had a great bathroom. Lee and Jacky helped us plan out our visit. We had a day trip to the Monastery, the Napa grasslands and a Tibetan village! It was a real highlight of our trip to Yunnan! A great place to stay!

The service is the key to the appeal of this guesthouse. It is true that the bathroom design is in need of a revamp, but the bedroom itself was perfectly adequate: the bed was comfortable and it was peaceful. The location is very good, a short walk to the bustle of the tourist throng in the Old Town yet tucked... More

This establishment was acquired by the present owner in March 2012. It undoubtedly has potential, although the rooms are currently very tired and the bathrooms need gutting, not least as the floor tray to the walk-in shower slopes the wrong way and, assisted by a partially blocked outlet, had the effect of creating a pond over the entire bathroom floor...

Close to old town, but quiet location near main road into town. Positives - authentic, wooden, Tibetan, English spoken Negatives - climbing fligthts of stairs with high altitude, slightly hard bed. Overall, good value.
