Spent 3 nights at Lijiang Waterfall Hotel.
We booked for a room on the Executive floor. After checking in, we entered our room and was literally choked with smoke smell. The earlier guest must have either smoked non-stop or he was smoking some strong cigar.
We immediately went back to reception to request for non-smoking room. We were informed that Executive rooms are only located on the 5th floor and all rooms on 5th floor are smoking rooms. We were offered to change to 9th floor room, which is non-smoking but much smaller than 5th floor rooms. At the same time, we were informed that we may need to top-up for the new room as it has a better view.
I login to their website and confirmed that this wasn't true, in fact the rooms on the 9th floor are supposed to be slightly cheaper than 5th floor. After showing them the facts, we were given the new room without rate change. Since I have already prepaid for the room, I didn't want to insist on reducing the room rate as I do not want to spoil my mode by getting into a heated argument.
Although the 9th floor room was much smaller, we were happy as we did not have to suffer breathing the foul air.
Bed was comfortable. Room lived up to 5-star rating.
Breakfast was included but you can call it a miss. We went out for breakfast instead.
Location is good. Plenty to walk and see near the hotel.
Overall, it is quite a good place to stay.
