“great people, great views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Loved our stay. Right on the river. I thought it would be far from the action but its not. Everything you need is very close. For China the people who run the place are very different. They are always smiling and appreciate you being there they try their best to accommodate you always. If i returned i would not even look anywhere else.

Room Tip: Get a river room.

Although they do not speak English, the staff is service oriented and is very helpful for managing next transportation (bus, taxi...). They helped us to book bus tickets, a taxi for early morning... and even got up early to prepare us a coffee. You can enjoy your visit in Fenghuang, no need to worry about the next step!
Nice location, with rooms with balcony with view on the river. Wifi available & AC on demand.
In the afternoon, they play guitar in the small "cafe" downstairs which creates a pleasant atmosphere.

This is originally "Koolaa's Home" mentioned in LP and seems to change the location including balcony overlooking the beautiful river scene with a rocker. But everything is the same as what LP wrote.

Considering price(especially room with a number 102) , the room is large and clean. It has a wired (in the room) and wireless internet service(depending on the signal reaching to your room)

The owner can speak limited English but very kind. She can arrange the discounted ticket for some scenic area if you want, though I believe you won't need this. I mean, I think the places where you need ticket doesn't deserve price and time.

Many places in Fenghuang is very hard to find because ancient narrow alleys keeps internet maps from guiding well. You can call 151-7433-9597 to ask the owner to come where you can meet.

We paid a slightly expensive 130rmb for a room here, but it had a balcony with such a nice view I couldn't resist. The room was great - wifi, western bathroom, and spacious. The staff didn't speak any English but looked after us very well including sorting out our onward travel to zhangjiajie. The location is slightly away from the thick of things but this means its nice and quiet. Overall I would totally recommend it.
