This hotel is nicely designed, and in lovely setting, but needs to work on its service, and also its extra fees.
The food in the restaurant is nothing special, better to eat outside. And we found that when we hired a guide from outside (one we'd found through TripAdvisor), we got much better service from him, and also a better price (Banyan Tree's transportation costs are sky-high).
The location isn't the greatest for access to the old town of Lijiang, but in the morning you can enjoy a view of the mountains.
If we come to Lijiang again, we'd probably stay old town Lijiang or Shuhe.
