Everything in this small but lovely lovely hotel is great!!! What made it great was the staff named Catherine. We cannot communicate well since we do not know how to speak any chinese but with her perseverance and patience to help us ,it made our stay enjoyable.On the first day, she showed me the view of all lijiang old town in the roof top.Then she brought us to a famous "hotpot restaurant "inside the old town. She walked us there and communicated with the waitress in the restaurant for us. Breakfast is served in our room,anytime. since it was the lowest season of the hotel, it was only us who was staying in the hotel at that time. The Hotel is inside the Old town, a street away from the busy-ness of the "touristic old town. In the night ,it is quite.Not recommended to walk out as the streets are dark. The rooms were very modern and looks beautiful! The duvets was what I loved the best! However, since we visited this January, lijiang was at it's coldest,around 0 degrees celsius at night and the rooms in this hotel doesn't have a centralized heater, only a portable one and that did not helped heat up the room. My husband got sick because every time we arrived from our day trip,the room was freezing!We asked for another portable heater but Catherine refused..(I don't know if she understood my request anyways). That is the only thing that made our stay a bit inconvenient otherwise it was excellent. Will definitely stay here again but not during the winters. Oh, I didn't know this but, there is a free transportation from the Airport to the Hotel and back if you stay 4 days and more in their hotel. We didn't know about this as it was not advertized but Booking.com tried to contact me through e-mail unfortunately we were touring and didn't check our e-mails.so,please check on when you book and ask about transportation. Do not take airport taxis,they charged 100yuan, they don't use meters.Taxis are expensive in Lijiang.We were lucky to meet this local chinese couple who owns a blue van(legal in Lijiang) and drove us everyday for 200yuan.Catherine helped us with communicating with this couple (what time to be picked up,where to go etc..).made our stay easier...and convenient.
