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... More

There are two Mama's Naxi Guesthouse in Lijiang. One in the Old Town itself, and another about 10-minute walk away. I'm not sure if this site is for which, but I'm reviewing for the on in the old town. The location is great for the day you want to explore, but it was quite a pain to find the guesthouse... More

We stayed 3 nights at Mama's and we enjoyed. It is located 10 minutes walk to the old town is a quiet area. We booked the airport pickup that went well. Our double room was clean, spacious and bright with a view. The bed was large but hard as often in China. Wifi worked well. We also enjoyed the dinner... More

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,... More

I really enjoyed the stay, the building is beautiful and rustic, giving you a real sense of the area. Dorms are clean and secure with huge lockers. The hostel has a lot of character and a great atmosphere. Mama and the team are fun and always happy to help out, rent you bikes etc. I loved it so much I... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Tucked away in a quieter corner of the Old Town, Naxi Guesthouse is far enough away from the hordes of tourists to actually enjoy a walk around the cobblestone alleys, but still close enough to the action. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and has retained a lot more authentic charm than many of its' Old Town counter-parts. 100yuan will get... More

Me and my boyfriend arrived to Lijiang at 8 pm and searched for the Mama Naxi (according to the Lonely Planet). We found it and asked for the double bed room- We paid 160 RMB. When we got into the room, we found out that there is no wifi signal in the room, only near the recaption. Also, the "hot... More
