“Good, worth staying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is my 3rd trip to Lijiang and I love this place. This time I came with my hubby, my 3 years old boy, my parents, brother inlaw and family. I decided that we are gg to stay in the ancient town to experience some thing different so I booked Sanhe. Due to flight delayed, we arrived pass mid night. The staffs were very helpful and friendly. Despite that its so late, they still helped us to add extra bed, laid the bed sheet and all these were done with smiles.

The bedroom was of a comfortable size attached bath room, bed heater, a small table, 2 stools...

Although, we had to walk a distance away from the hotel for breakfast and it is super cold in the morning, we were quite satisfied with the food served.

The location was very convenient, not too far from the main road, surrounded with eateries, shops etc.

Stayed here for just one night on my way to Shangrila. The location of the hotel is simply perfect. It is walking distance to the town center and has all the restaurants and bars nearby. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The beds are really big. They do not provide any soaps or shampoos so you need to car your own. The hotel is pretty big and the room at the back are not noisy even though the hotel is in the middle of the walking town.
The signs in the bathroom are a little funny as they are literal translation from Chinese.
Lots of eating places nearby but beware of the cheats. The restaurant we went to told us that they can not give less than six beers. After the two of us had ordered that we saw others having a single beer. This became a big deal as my Chinese companion felt cheated and called the police. Looks like the it was normal to cheat tourists this way.
Overall we had a very comfortable stay in Sanhe hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms towards the back building as they are quiet.

We stayed here for 5 nights after our trek in tiger leaping gorge. We could walk into the streets of old town Lijiang directly fron here and come back to relacx when the noise and activity got too much. It was nice but nothing ancient or old town about it - very new. We had a suite which was too big for us but we enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are good but you have to be careful going up and down the stairs.

We stayed here for three nights in total. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. It is centrally located in Lijiang Old Town so everything is close. It is, however, a good respite from the crowds. The courtyards are beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed relaxing at the hotel and visiting with each other. Only annoyance was the lack of toiletries. You have to buy little packets of shampoo and body wash as the hotel doesn't provide any. Creating so much trash with each shower seems to run counter to their "Eco" tourism positioning. Overall, a good value.

This place blended old style courtyard with clean and comfortable modernized rooms. It is in the heart of Lijiang Ancient City old town and has lots of charm. Daily breakfast is included provided by a cafe around the corner. This is a quiet oasis from shopping, tea tasting, and people watching. They had reasonable rates and we had a small frig for drinks along with tea.

I love this one. Lijiang Sanhe Hotel is really the place to be when you want to enjoy a relaxed, clean and atmospheric Chinese Hotel in Yunnan for a really afforable price. It is not a backpacker hotel, but not luxuary neither. Like most hotels and shops in Lijiang, this building was rebuilt after the 1996 earthquake in the traditional Yunnan/Naxí style wooden houses including two cosy inner courtyards. We were very lucky to get the two-room suite for the price of a standard double room and really enjoyed it. Stylish wooden furniture all over. The living room with TV, two sofas, tea time accessoires and 3 different types of tea, etc. Bedroom with a desk, huge wardrobe, trésor and - yes - an electric blanket. Bathroom and shower were also very spacious, clean and designed. Personnel was very friendly, accepted bad Chinese and spoke English quite well. The did not have breakfast up there but we got tickets for a small European restaurant 40m away (coffee, toast, crêpes, eggs etc.). If you ask me: skip it as you should always skip Western food in Asia! I did and enjoyed 3 most delicious breakfasts in the small restos just opposite the hotel entry: hot beef noodle soup, Jiaozi dumplings and my favourite Baba, a flat Naxi-style wheatbread. Since the hotel is located directly in the center of this pittoresque but already touristic and crowded small old town, it becomes quite loud during the evening. If you want to get sleep before midnight, do not forget earplugs. Summarizing, it was really the best hotel of our 3 week China roundtrip and we really recharged energies here.

We liked this hotel, in its courtyard setting. More basic rooms than some large city centre ones, but its setting and charm more than made up for it. Pine furniture, room sizes not large but sufficiently big. Great to be in Lijiang old town. Breakfast served in cafe over the road which was fine - good fried eggs.
