We stayed here for 3 days in Jan. 2011. Overall, recommend this guest house to other travelers who are looking for good value, while on a budget.
- Free WiFi available throughout, including guest rooms.
- Good value room rate.
- Family-Friend Environment with Owner there most of time.
- Building exterior has much character.
- Reasonable location -- a 10 min. walk into the central Lijiang area, but still very convenient.
- Great rooms on the second floor.
The Not So Good:
- Except for a basic breakfast, no food served at the guest house. However, the family does have another restaurant in town (about 10 mins. walk).
- Day tour packages were not reasonable, very expensive and limited selection.
- Common area is limited to a dining table in the courtyard.
- Noise could be an issue if people decided to party in the courtyard late at night, as each room overlooks the courtyard. Was not an issue for us during our stay.
