I was fortunate to stay at this hotel for an extended period in Oct 2016 on a business trip. The hotel is spread over a large area with 50-60 mini apartment blocks. My block was nearest to the main building and had 4 rooms (2 on each floor). My room was extremely spacious and had all the amenities expected for...

This is a very charming hotel with ancient style bungalows or buildings. I guess the city is not that big so most attractions seem to be within walking distance. Room is kind of old but staff is very friendly. This would be the place to stay if you are visiting Lijiang.

A fabulous product designed around an ancient city, a credit to the management and designers and complimented by attentive and gracious staff. Breakfast over looking a snow capped mountain is quite an experience. Only blot was the poor internet service

This modern facility was an excellent choice. Located next to the old town, it is well placed. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. All that we met spoke good English. The room was clean and comfortable. Our room gave us access to the club lounge, which was super. This is one of the best.

Although a wee bit pricey for Lijiang, the rooms are modern and spacious, the restaurants are very good, and the feel of the place is compatible with the adjacent Old Town of Lijiang. Can't go wrong with this choice.
