The Li An Lodge was an amazing place, with by far the best location in town for viewing the rice terraces. Our host, Aaron, was extremely attentive and kind, guided us through the beautiful landscape, spoke very good English, played with our daughter and is even a very good cook! The wooden hotel has a cozy feel, and the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated.
Very good place to stay in the middle of rice terraces. Host are very kind. Young man speaks a good English which is helpful. Inside wood decoration is very beautiful. Good breakfast with toast, bacon, eggs and coffee 😀. Good place to start to walk in the middle of terrace in the different walkway.
A must stay and one to go out of your way for. Take a walk or a job along and overview of the terraces. The host were very accomadating, the community room had a nice beverage selection. We couldn't reccomend it more and found it to be the best stay in our 3 week visit.
The hotel may be one of the last to preserve the picturesque and typical of the region. The decoration of the hotel and the rooms is tasteful, rescuing the local crafts. Be sure to wake up early in the morning to admire the wonderful sunrises reflected in the thousands of rice terraces from the hotel balcony. The hotel staff, as Tony, speaks above average English and were attentive to answering all our questions in great detail. My contribution would be to improve breakfast . Anyway, this hotel was, for me, one of the highest points of our trip.
What a gem! We spent an incredible night at the Li An Lodge after trekking up the 1200 steps to the top of the terraces. A NOT TO BE MISSED STOP IN anyone's travels to China. Aaron was in charge and didn't disappoint. He gave us a tour of all of the guest suites (EVERY one is different, with unique themes and artifacts by the owner, Karen Su), including the quite a history lesson. In addition, we watched 2 videos in the lodge produced by the owner. Dinner and breakfast were abundant, a cool local beer at sunset on the terrace was fabulous, hot coffee at sunrise on the terrace was most appreciated and the attention to one of our gluten-free family members was most appreciated. The views of the rice terraces are exquisite. DO NOT miss early morning while the clouds are still hanging in the terraces and the gorge. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this intimate (less than 20 rooms) gem. Definitely worth the hike up!! And, for approx 80 yuan you can have your overnight bags carried up/down for you.…
