I booked a bed in this GH for end of February but when I arrived there in the early morning, there was nothing except renovation work going on. So I went to the other Mama Naxi's GH in the old town and had to wait outside in the yard until the owner woke up. The owner and her husband did...

I recommended this place for any traveler (friends, lovers, family, solo..) The staff (owner) is very helpful. She can speak English well and negotiable. There is a lot of local restaurant nearby and is a lot cheaper than food in oldtown. Bed is so comfy. You can get car rent service or one day tour service from the staff. Price...

After roaming the old town and visiting Mama Naxi 1 and 3, we got advised to visit the new Mama Naxi outside of the old town. Mama Naxi 3 is closed and Mama Naxi 1 has been taken over by others. Mama Naxi on Kangzhong road 22 is the real deal with the real Mama, address: 22 Lijingwan Jixiang Road,...

I pre booked Mama Naxi's and quite frankly was never sure exactly which one I was staying at. I never saw the famous Mama Naxi. There was a very nice younger woman at reception who spoke good English and was helpful, and a not so helpful guy. When I arrived I gave the taxi driver the instructions, went to the...

We really enjoyed our stay at Mama Naxi. We were picked up from the airport by them for 80RMB which was a great idea as Lijiang is a maze of alleyways and we wouldn't have had much luck finding it ourselves. The inn is beautiful and in a lovely old town setting with lots of red lanterns. Room had electric...

I stayed in Mama Naxi's guesthouse for three nights last December while on a hiking trip to Yunnan from Beijing. At first I received some confusion regarding airport pickups, but luckily I had a Chinese friend call them for a translation. In the end I had a transfer from the airport for a reasonable price of 80rmb. When I arrived...
