Shaxi Aoding Courtyard was built completely in line with traditional Bai architectural style, with courtyards and carefully arranged details and garden. The founder has further improved two common nuisances in traditional Bai constructions: poor ventilation and sound insulation. Now at Shaxi Aoding Courtyard, guests will enjoy sound and undisturbed sleep and dreams as legend in Shaxi has promised.

My wife and I are 2 int’l teachers who were stuck traveling in China for the '21 summer and we stayed here 1 night. The location is super close to walk and explore the ancient town. The little hotel is full of courtyards and quaint sitting areas. Our room was impressive, large and clean. We were on the 1st floor and would have enjoyed the 2nd floor so we wouldn’t have to hear footsteps. My wife enjoyed the very comfortable bed, modern bathroom and strong water pressure. We did both dinner and breakfast. The chef was eager to cater to our vegetarian ways and neither meal disappointed. Excellent place to stay in Shaxi!!

This was one of the nicest hotels we have found during our travels in China. It is a smaller hotel with large rooms surrounding a lovely courtyard. Hotel opened in 2007 and everything is clean and in great condition. It is very peaceful so we slept well. It is a family run business, and the owner speaks excellent english. There is a small restaurant that we enjoyed for both dinner and breakfast. All the food was wonderful. The french toast and coffee at breakfast were especially noteworthy. Menus are both in English and Chinese on an electronic tablet, so ordering is easy. Hotel is just a few minutes walk to the center of Shaxi, so it was easy to explore the town.

Stayed here during the national week. Really clean place in a traditional. Oriental courtyard style. A one up an expert on the area (knows the best places to eat and stay, even recommended eats and stays for our next stops: tiger leaping gorge and Shangri-La). The restaurant here also cooks up great dinner! (We enjoyed the pork ribs and the potato pancake).

We stayed at the Aoding Courtyard for two nights towards the end of a two week trip through Yunnan province. The rooms are beautifully renovated and decorated, and the bed was the most comfortable one of our trip - we slept like babies! The food was delicious, with both local and Western options. (I'll confess, as much as we love the Yunnan cuisine, it was such a nice change of pace to have some French toast one morning!) Dahua and his family are amazing hosts and took great care of us during our stay. He's very knowledgeable about the region, culture, and history. We wished we could have stayed longer and we're already thinking about returning next year...

Shaxi Aoding Courtyard was my favorite hotel, by far, from our three weeks in China, a perfect mix of traditional and modern. The food in the restaurant was superb, the bar unusually well stocked. The markets and old Shaxi were easy walks. The manager grew up in the area and is intimately familiar with Yunnan Province, but speaks excellent English, a rare combination. I definitely recommend Aoding Courtyard for someone who wants to experience old Shaxi first hand.

We could have happily spent a week in this lovely boutique hotel! This courtyard hotel is spacious, clean, attractive, and a quiet respite from the busy streets of Shaxi. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the historic center of town and local markets. The owner and his family were welcoming, helpful, and knowledgeable, offering to do our laundry and sharing samples of baijiu, the local alcohol. The meals at the hotel were delicious! The hotel has a full bar, which is a rare find in this area. Our room had an outside patio with views of the nearby mountains. Highly recommended!

We have been here only two days and wished it could be much longer! The place is beautiful, quiet, very clean, a few minutes walk to the very old centre and its famous square place. The owner is extremely friendly and professional. He speaks good English, which helps. The food very good and since we were a big group of 30 they made extra efforts to accommodate the wishes of everyone. I definitely suggest you chose this place if you visit Jianchuan! And we will be back!
