“One of the Best Hotels of Our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stayed in a dozen hotels during a recent month-long trip. This was among the best. It's clean and comfortable, as well as attractive and conveniently located in Shuhe. The furnishing are a little funky, but that's more of an observation than a complaint.

Though it's a little boutique-y, Shuhe is delightful and full of restaurants and shops. It's a picturesque alternative to the hustle and bustle of Lijiang itself, which is just a few miles away and easily reached by taxi.

The staff at the hotel is superb. Everyone was friendly and accommodating to a degree we encountered nowhere else during our trip. If you plan to be in Lijiang--or near it--you won't find a better place to stay.

We stayed 4 days 3 nights as a part of our honeymoon trip in Yunnan. It was a good choice for a relaxing place after we arrived from Shangrila. When we arrived we called the hotel staff to pick up us at the front gate of Shuhe old town as the road is too bumpy if we have to carry by our self to the hotel (Tips: buy a china mobile number first, price 100Yuan). Then we met a very helpful staff named Jet, he speaks very good English. Jet helped us many things: he arranged our tour to Yulong snow mountain, helped us to rent a taxi/van, suggest us to rent bikes to Baisha Village, arranged train tickets from Lijiang to Kunming. He also recommended us some restaurants in the hood and also some good attractions nearby. We dont speak Chinese and got many difficulties during our first time trip in China so we were really glad to meet the english spoken staffs here.
The room is clean, spacious, unique- ethnic and the bed is really comfort with an ellectric blanket as we stayed during the winter. They have a party in the hotel courtyard and you can get a chance to dance spontaneous with the Naxi ladies.
The hotel has helpful staffs and it is a wonderful place to stay.

We came with a group of 12 persons from Singapore and Perth and we stayed for 3 nights at yr hotel. We all agreed that this hotel is very good value for money. Hotel is very clean and the location is also convenient too. All their staff are very friendly, helpful, and professional. exceptional service from Mr Jet, he speaks very good English and is most willing to help us to organise and plan our stay in Lijiang. He even communicates with the taxi driver and give us advice on where to find food and help us organise tour etc. We'll love to return and stay in this wonderful hotel again. I wish to thank Lili and Jet for their hospitality making our stay in Lijiang so enjoyable and pleasant. Thank you once again.

We picked this hotel due to its high rating and did like it overall. But a few problems are just sticking out.

Our first impression about the room is good. However, looking closely, we soon noticed several dirty stains on bedding including one blood spot. After shower, I found white towels are old and a little dark with a couple of holes.

Smoking is a problem. Guests and staff smoke a lot and everywhere, including lobby and court yards. All rooms are smoking room although the smell is not too bad in ours.

Staff are friendly but dis-organized at times. They scheduled 8 people to get on a small tour van which allows only 6 passengers. Finding next van costed us half day with no success. You can easily find many tour options 2 minutes walking to Sifong Street and cost less. We had a wonderful experience there later.

There are several similar hotels on the same street but they were not on Agoda or Trip advisor. They are just as good as Hui-feng and cost half.

Dear Flyingmg, Thanks very much for your review and your time posting it. Really sorry for late reply, indeed,we are relly sorry to hear that you didn't so enjoy your stay with us, really sorry for the things you encountered, we,all the staffs at Huifeng inn Shuhe, do apologize to you and your family, please accept our sincerely apologises. And we are doing all we can to be better,your ideas do matter to us, really important for us to improve,to change, thanks again. With all the guests' help,we are better and better, i believe. And we are devoting ourselves to provide a best and most comfortable family inn at Lijiang with our best amenities and service for all the guests from around the world. Welcome back to huifeng again and you will meet a big surprise,i promise. But as you say,there are lots of hotels by the street, similar to us with higher price,actually you seem to be misleaded, there is one thing i would like to make it clear that our hotel is quite different from them, we have 3 yards(1,000sq.m.) with all kinds of flowers blooming through the year,and a large swimming pool,and free wi-fi around the yards and in every room,and lots of pulic relax zone with tables and chairs, guests can enjoy sunshine or surf the internet in the yards, however,we only have 16 rooms in totel, so every room is petty large and decorated differently,with heater,electric blanket,humidifier,LCTV,bathrobe,slippers,thick blanket,body lotion,hair-drier,nail-clippers,multifunctional charger and some other necessities, and our Deluxe suits are also equipped with air-conditioning, so you see, the amenities in our hotel petty deluxe,like a 5-star hotel, so every room in our hotel is quite worth the price, and if you go into other inn by the street,you will find that their yard is little,room is small,and service is terrible, comparing to them,most guests find that we are the best one at the reasonable price and with best service, and importantly, we are trying to be better and better. We are hoping and looking forward to seeing again. Thank you very much for your time and caring about us. Best regards to you and your family. Your always sincerely, jet.

we felt spoilt and special from our pick up at the airport to drop off.
as it was my birthday we had the honeymoon suite lovely, we had the same driver throughout our 4 days,he spoke very little english but so helpful in directing us to entrances and ticket office and was always there when we returned at our own time. the nice lad at the hotel sorry i did not get his name went out of his way with advice when needed to taking us to reccomended restaurants and deciphering the menu, you must try the Tibetan so friendly and a different experience( yak meat, very tasty) we went to the theatre of impression at Jade Snow mountain, amazing followed by an unforgettable trip to Yak meadow, we were the only people on top of this mountain with awesome views after 30 min bus ride and 30 min cable car. the chinese all got off bus at the bottom by blue pool. This hotel is a must and thank you for my birthday gift.

We stayed at the Huifeng for 5 nights in September. Cherry and Lily were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. We travelled with our friend so had 2 rooms between 3 of us which were both beautiful. Our room was upstairs in the older section of the hotel with gorgeous huge furniture and comfortable bed. Ensuite was a little dated but Lily explained they were planning to renovate that section of the hotel next. Everything was very clean and well looked after.

Shuhe itself is much nicer and quieter than Lijiang Old Town we were really pleased we had chosen to stay here instead. The inn also provides breakfast if you give them notice and traditional chinese family style meals for dinner at very reasonable prices.

Overall if you want a quiet relaxing and unique place to stay you can't go past the Huifeng Inn. We loved it and if we come back to China will definitely stay here again for some relaxation!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the new side if you want something a little more modern and quiet.

Good establishment tucked away in the old town. Well-appointed rooms open on to courtyards, so the further back in the hotel the quieter it is likely to be (although there is no external noise anywhere). Little English is spoken, although we were assisted throughout by a young man named Jet who was always on hand to advise; what limited English he had was more than made up for by his boundless enthusiasm and constant smile, and we are most grateful to him not only for making us feel very welcome but for sorting out our excursion and transfer requirements at very good rates.

We stayed four nights so believe we got the measure of the place. The hotel does not ordinarily do food for its guests (although we gather will order meals in on request), but we particularly enjoyed both the breakfasts and vegetarian offer at Nomad (Mamma Mia being an alternative for Italian-orientated fayre in the evening - see separate reviews).
