“Comfortable guest house with a unique touch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Clean, well furnished, this is a great place to discover Shangri-La.

The suite is worth the price as it is spatious and has an antique Tibetan flavor. It has a small room attached to it making it perfect for 3 people.

You will feel at home. Great sleep quality in this quiet environment.

Food is great and absolutely worth dining in even though it may appear higher priced than outside. It is well worth it and you won't be disappointed. Fresh, house grown vegetables and well prepared.
Hazel, will be happy to cook yak meat and local delicacy Song Rong mushrooms.
A fresh salad is welcome at the end as it gives the meal a well appreciated Western touch after some time in China. Something you almost never see elsewhere in Yunnan.
Honestly the best food we had on this trip !

100% dedicated staff will make you feel at home. And you will enjoy the fire place, even in the summer as the temperature is quite low in the evening even during the summer time evenings.

We will for sure go back !

My stay featured a number of additional amenities, including ginger tea and cookies in the evening. Hazel also supports local artisans, e.g. the Tibet Artisan Initiative and the Shangrila Farms organic agriculture project. She also has the most agreeable Golden Retriever - the only dog of its kind I saw in 3 weeks of visiting China. Cleanliness is superb, hospitality is first class. Well worth the extra 10 minute walk to be out of the old town hubub.

Room Tip: Ask for the main floor king-sized room with fireplace.

This is a beautiful, homey option in Shangrila. Hazel has renovated the rooms by adding larger windows and modern bathrooms while also restoring the old structure's beautiful old rooms. The cats, goose, and dogs are all also quite wonderful. She is also a great guide with advice for what to do in town.

One of the best accomodation and experience we had throughout Yunnan !
A short distance from Zhongdiang old town, this peacefull and quiet place in a traditional 2-storeys Tibetan house, is owned by Hazel who is wonderful at making you feel like at home. She will try her best to fulfill your expectations (changing pillows for softer ones, special requests for breakfast, ...).
The dogs (Golden Retriever and Tibetan) are also very friendly and love playing.

Please note that the correct address is :

6 Wayao Road
Jinlong Street
Old Town
Shangri-La
Yunnan
China

Room Tip: Ask for duplex room : great !
