Beautiful guest house with great rooms. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was quite good: fruit, toast, eggs made to order, biscuits and cake/coffee. The staff were lovely, really friendly and helpful. We visited with two young children and they were so accommodating, letting us check out later and always smiling and engaging them when they saw them playing... More

What a great find. Amongst the hustle and bustle of Old Town in Lijiang, is this oasis. Brilliant and friendly staff compliment the clean and tidy rooms. The price is excellent and is right in the heart of Old Town but also easy to get out and about from to explore the many attractions of Lijiang. We had a brilliant... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a brilliant position, very close to the centre of the old city but secluded and quiet. There are many interesting artefacts decorating the public areas. Breakfast is buffet style and includes varied fruit, eggs, yoghurt, biscuits, toast etc. We were offered umbrellas which proved very useful! :(

For an authentic experience of the Yunnan mountain city of Lijiang, this 100+ year old home converted to comfortable inn (with all the modern conveniences one can expect in China) is a perfect choice. Relaxed and peaceful it sits atop the old city and offers unparalleled views. The staff are friendly and speak enough English to make your stay pleasant... More

This is a small quaint hotel, located off the noisy shopping streets of the old town in Lijiang. Excellent breakfasts, very helpful with your every need! The rooms are small but the location, environment and people make it worth the small rooms. Atmosphere very relaxing and enjoyable.

This is a beautiful, serene and authentic place in the old city, quiet and relaxing in the middle of the noise and commercialism all around. Staying there allowed us to enjoy the beauty of Lijiang's old town despite its theme park aspects. There we heard nothing of the loud music which makes the old town rather unpleasant at night. The...

The location is in a small alley in Lijiang old town. There was a power break when we were going there so we couldn't call the hotel. It's hard to find even for a chinese speaking person. The room was quite small but ok. It was quite cold though, even in July. The bed was quite hard as usual in... More

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and beautiful - like many of the Inns in Lijiang - but what makes this place unique is the wonderful hospitality of its hosts.

The hotel is lovely with a courtyard and balcony with a view of the mountains. We enjoyed our three days here immensely. The best part was the helpful, friendly staff. They provided tea and delicious sunflower seed cookies whenever we returned in the afternoon. On learning it was my birthday, Zhi Mei brought out a bottle of local liquor in... More
