This charming hotel is adjacent to the ancient city and modelled very much like it. The Snow Mountain backdrop is breathtaking. Our room was modern, spacious, clean and well equipped. Staff were courteous and attentive. There are 2 restaurants, with a choice of oriental or western cuisine. Highly recommended for convenient access to the ancient city, as guests have direct...

The hotel complex is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous! It's also huge. The major plus for us was that there are shuttles from the rooms to the main part of the hotel; they arrive about 5 minutes after you call. Of course, you can also stroll around the hotel grounds past ponds, gardens, the Dongba chicken statue, to the Old Town, and...

Very beautiful hotel, location is really close to the city centre, walking distance to Lijiang Ancient Town. Hotel ground is huge, able to see Jade Dragon Mountain at the back. The room is all in villa style, interior design keeps the Naxi(纳西族) minority style, with the modern twist design. The golf buggies will pick up and drop off you from...

What a surprise it was to find this level of accommodation so far west in southern China. Rooms were luxurious, food was the best range I have found in a long while. Very close to the main city markets and other central sites of the city. Cocktail lounge had great views of the mountain and for the area cheap drinks.
