This beautiful hotel is located at the edge of Lijiang Old City, 3 mins walk from the famous South Gate. The room is huge and beautifully decorated. There is air-conditioning in the room which is not a standard feature for many other hotels in the old city. The scenery of the garden is beautiful, like walking in an old town... More

Right next to the Lijiang ancient town, it makes an ideal hotel to book in Lijiang. The rooms are delightful and spacious, with good service. The public areas are spacious and luxurious. Quite expensive though! Rather book sightseeing tours through local travel guides.

Location first: front door on the street (meaning you can reach with a taxi), back door with direct access to the old town (walk through pedestrian streets). Hotel is perfectly maintained, rooms are large and well equipped, the concierge team is especially diligent (for organising any tour in the region). Lastly the Chinese restaurant is in my opinion the best... More

The hotel is located right by one of the gates of Lijiang old town, where we had our afternoon walks and nights strolls. Lijiang old town, despite having its commercial taste, is incredibly and overwhelmingly beautiful. The architecture, facade, interior, and layout of the hotel buildings blended perfectly with the thousand-year old ancient town but with desirable touch of contemporary... More

This is a well equipped resort hotel with rooms located away from the main building so you will need to use the umbrellas they supply if it is raining.
