The owner speaks very good English as well Menu is a mix of Mediterranean and classic Western fare I had hummus and chicken kebab Large portions. Excellent quality Overall if you want a break from Chinese food, highly recommended this place

We arrived in ShangriLa and were surprised that the first few guesthouses we looked at were charging prices greatly in excess of what was listed in the guide books and tripadvisor. Whilst nothing special, the Noah/Olive Inn prices were reasonable. For 120 yuan, we got a big room, hot shower and great location in town. The staff are fairly non-existent,... More

Reading from the reviews of the Olive as the Noah Inn, it seemed like a pretty good place to stay. The price was abit higher than other hotels, but it seemed like a good idea. Boy were we wrong. I've been to a lot of hotels/hostels in China, even drabby ones maybe even less appealing than the prison rooms in... More

A unexpected treat in a good location. Great choice of food, good beer, Internet access and very comfortable surroundings. Friendly locals (including the cat, who would curl up on your lap if she got too hot sleeping next to the fire). We had Snacks during the day and evening meal and all were excellent. Recommend a visit. Can't comment on... More

We stayed at the Noah Inn for 3 nights at the end of July. The room, a double room ensuite, was nice but unfortunately slightly damp. It was cleaned every day though and we were provided with towels and an electric blanket. There was hot water every day which we heard isn't always the case in Shangri-la. The hostel is... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. Noah's Inn (now called The Olive), is really centrally located in the Old Town, yet far enough away from the two squares that noise from the nightly dancing was not a problem. The rooms were clean and comfortable, if a little cold at times, but the electric blanket on the bed... More

The Noah Cafe and Inn is located centrally in the old city of Zhongdian (Now better known as Shangri La). The hotel itself is comfortable, but the best part of this hotel were the staff. As well as being friendly, and with a basic knowledge of English, they were really helpful with all requests. For example, we were looking for... More
