“A place we want to visit again and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

It was hard to find place at LiJiang ShuHe that has access to sunshine most of the day. We looked at quite a few places but most were hidden away and very dark. We were glad we found and finally chose the Australia House, Not only we can see the snow montain under sunshine at our houses but can enjoy the beautiful sunshine in the garden the whole day long. We also like their unique tea bar, beer bar and steak house very much! Later, we were told by some locals that this is the only one in LiJiang area with this type so far! How lucky we are!

I enjoyed the Chinese breakfast with my colleagues while my ABC daughter enjoyed the typical western breakfast with her friends as well. What a joint venture happiness for all! Great place with great value. A place I want to visit with families and friends again and again!

Room Tip: Depends on your need and style, they have many to choose and fit.

We stayed in Autralia house for 4 days and the time flew buy.With host Lou marking great drinks in their beer garden and the smell of pork ribs in the background we didn't want to venture out.Lou's parter Cindy was a great source of local information and pointed us to the right places to shop as well as organizing day trips to tiger leaping gorge and Jade snow mountain for us,The rooms were large,modern and clean.We have stayed at similar guest houses but for the price Australia was by for the best value for money.No hesitation to recomend Austrilia house.

This place WILL give you value for money.

Don not get deceived by the name, the only thing that is Australian there is the owner (which is also half Greek). They will open a Australian Steak house soon, but for the rest, the Australia house is 100 % Naxi style architecture, less than 10 minutes walk from Suhe old town, which is a lot nicer than Lijiang old town (overcrowded).

I stayed there a couple of nights already and I'm sure I will return when I'm back in that area.

For a 3 star price you have big rooms with comfortable bed (not those Chinese hard mattresses) and shower and toilet are separate, not all in a tiny bathroom.

On top of it, the owner is very proud of he's water cleaning system to make sure nobody gets sick while staying in the hotel!

I can guarantee you, you will not regret your stay in this hotel!

Enjoy!

Room Tip: They have many different kind of rooms. If your budget is a bit better, choose for Sydney or Mebourn...
