Li Ren Ju Inn
Ranked #210 of 941 Hotels in Lijiang
Reviewed July 17, 2010

Luminn is nicely decorated, very basic and simple.

Location: As with looking for any hostel in Old Town Lijiang, you will get lost looking for this one. However, they were nice enough to look for us and made sure we got to the hostel alright.

Room (twin private): The room door was secured with a padlock and did not close completely, but I guess it added some old-fashioned "charm". Weather was nice outside, so no complaints of the room being drafty. TV had basic channels, all very very staticky. Room could be brighter. Bathroom was not dirty per se,, but it could have definitely been a little cleaner. Bathroom also only had tapestry for a door. Bathroom ventilation is rather poor, as it was just a small dirty fan. Walls are very thin; we were told to keep it down when we were simply talking about a meter or so apart.

Fun: Pretty empty in the common areas; when we went, didn't meet any other guests.

Service: Staff made sure we made it to the hostel alright. English is not great, but they did their best to be helpful.

Value: Very basic, inexpensive, but I've had better rooms for the money. Maybe it's just because it's Lijiang, where everything is overpriced due to the mass tourism.

Great place to stay on the south side of the old town. Staff were very helpful - they came out to meet us where the taxi dropped us off, and gave us the newest map of the old town and plenty of useful directions. (Friends staying at a different hostel got an older map that was not nearly as good.) Bedrooms and bathrooms are large and nice (for the money; perhaps not by luxury hotel standards, but for the price it's fantastic). Beds are large and comfortable. It's a quick walk to the main square, but far enough away that it's nice and quiet at night. The hostel is small (just two floors and 10 or 12 rooms), which lends a nice air, especially in contrast to busy Lijiang old town.

One caution - two of the rooms (one upstairs, one downstairs) have windows that look onto the road. While this is good for light during the day, at night it can be loud with cars/trucks passing by on the nearby road (no cars right next to the hostel, but a couple streets away). If you're a light sleeper, ask for an inside room so you can avoid this intermittent road noise.

We had a great stay in this Naxi-style guest house. The rooms are stylish, clean and cosy, the beds really comfortable. There is a guest kitchen to use. The people who run that place are very helpful and friendly, they care about their guests. I recommend this guest house and would definitely stay there again.

Great little hotel in a quiet location about 5 mins walk from main square. Very friendly, helpful, english speaking owners. Handy location for taxi pick up and drop off. Nice cosy rooms with wifi. Cheap laundry service. Stayed 3 nights - brilliant value for a dbl room w/ ensuite. Would recommend. Booked through hostelworld.com. Lijiang is lovely - definitely worth a trip.
