The location is great, within 2 minutes you're inside Lijiang Old Town. And don't forget to check out the roof terrace! From this roof terrace you can... More

We stayed in this guesthouse for three nights. The rooms were ok, good size, because they were family rooms, the shower was very elementary, no curtain, not where to put the towels, we had to take the toilet paper out when we showered, but we could live with everything, except the beds, who were so hard, it felt like we...

Beautiful hotel with the most incredible view over Lijiang! Fully recommend both the double or twin room with mountain view. Great location, next to the old town and friendly staff. We were a little lost on arrival and the owner came to find us, in the rain! Very kind. Lovely hotel, definitely worth the money!

We stayed in an upper room with mountain view and it was excellent. So far the best place I've stayed in China. Clean, spacious, amazing view from the big glass window. Location is good, just few minutes walk to the old town and bus stop.

Great location just outside the old town, great staff with excellent English, good food and handy advice for TLG. Upstairs rooms are lovely... especially the front ones with amazing views over the old town. Wifi worked fine for us. Washing machine was handy and plenty of outside drying room. A very good choice in Lijiang.
