“a soul cleansing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

This inn is situated, away from the spot light, in the ShuHu Old Town. For those who are looking for an escape from the insanity of the metropolis like me, this inn would make a great choice. My wife was especially taken by the breathtaking garden which has a pond of fish and lotus, and blossom of flower surrounding the whole area. We spent quite a number of our daytime sitting around the garden and enjoying the peacefulness it has to offer. we just felt as though time stopped.
Other than that, our room was neat, clean and spacious. and it was quiet at night, so we had no problem sleeping. The bathroom was clean to the point that my neat-freak wife didn't complain. However, not much of a varity of food was offered by the inn. But then were always out during meals, so we didn't bother to ask too much about food.
Going to other hot spots from this inn is also quite convient, too. About a 10 min walk to the ShuHu Old town; a 7-dollar cab ride took us to the Lijiang Old Town and catch the actions from all around Lijiang.
In fact, we actually found other cheaper places. but as soon as we saw the garden and the spacious room, we decided to stay considering the price was also affordible.
