    Absolutely one of a kind holel - built in/around an ancient theatre. The sort of thing that wouldnt have survived the revolution in more 'developed' parts of China. Set in a proper village, not a tourist disneyland village, where locals tend the fields each day....More

    Dear Edward, It was a pleasure having you and your family with us in very cold January! It is to the credit of our Bai ancestors in Shaxi who taught us the importance of continuing our traditions, that theatre temples such as ours can still...More

    Dear Sir, We realize that many hotels have 24-hour service, whereas our five room guesthouse does not. While this means we have only the local watchman on duty late at night, we have noted your comment about the room being cold upon arrival and have...More

    We stayed at the Old Theatre Inn between stays in Dali and Lijiang and the place really rejuvenated us. It's in a small village close to Shaxi and is, therefore, really peaceful. The room and bathroom were both lovely, and robes and slippers are provided....More
