It is a small quiet hotel in the noisy Lijiang .You can view the beautiful old architecture, enjoy the friendly service and the somewhat small breakfast. You cannot reach the Hotel by car because it is located in the old town. Ask for a luggage carrier before.

I arrived at this hotel quite late at night. A man from the hotel met my taxi at the main road outside the old town, grabbed my two suitcases and hand luggage and took them for me down the cobbled lanes into the old town to the hotel. Tea and sesame seed cookies were waiting for me. I was hungry... More

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
