“Loved it”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Excellent hospitality, cute room, transported our luggage to the inn. We loved this Inn and the town. Had we had to carry our luggage and navigate our way to the inn from the taxi with a toddler, I think that we would still be looking for it. It wasn't as bad as it sounds, it was just great to have the help. Our room had a free standing wooden bath as well as a separate shower and we had a balcony as well.....the bath was great the room very rustic and so charming! Our other family members had a bath in their room also, They used the pool after some hot days and walks. Jet the manager was much more than helpful, he went out of his way to please us! The only thing missing for us, was a little fridge to keep our drinks cold....but you cannot expect it to be 5 star....loved it!

Sent two nights here with my friends for a short trio . We stayed in the family suite which was great . The hotel is really clean comfortable and staff is great . The location is in not in the main which turned out to be great . The main town is lined with bars playing loud music and I'm sure it stays loud all night. We were so re dived to stay in this area as it was nice and quiet . This is a great hotel you can't go wrong with this choice

Room Tip: The family rooms is great for a family or group of friends

We stayed here in May and enjoyed our visit very much. We had a bit of a mixup with our airport transfer early on, but it was made right and we were giving a free dinner as well (which was delicious!). The hotel doesn't have a restaurant (but there are plenty of great ones nearby), but sometimes you can convince them to cook you a local meal.

Jet, the manager, went out of his way to help us at every turn, including personally walking us to places we were asking directions to and translating with the locals for us to make sure we got a good deal. He really made the stay for us and his service was spectacular.

There are a few things to note about this hotel, however, to prepare yourself for your stay. Jet was absolutely GREAT, but he was also the only English speaker we encountered at the hotel. If you need his services on one of his days off, it could be difficult. The hotel also requires payment in CASH, they have no way of accepting credit cards. We didn't realize this until it was time to pay, but luckily there was a China Construction Bank ATM nearby and the hotel was well priced so it was easy to get enough money to pay the bill.

The rooms are nice, with a more local feel than we experienced at any other hotel. There is hot water all day and we were provided a space heater which was more than adequate to heat our room. There aren't a lot of amenities and it does feel a bit rustic, but we didn't really mind because of all of the shops and restaurants nearby. Don't go in expecting a luxurious room, by any means, though.

The staff of the hotel, especially Jet, are also very into the local culture. On the weekends they have local dancing which every guest is encouraged to participate in, and if the kitchen is available they will be happy to cook you a delicious local meal (I highly recommend their local pork with mushrooms, and I don't even like mushrooms!). One of our favorite aspects of this hotel was their interest in giving you an authentic local experience.

One of the best assets of the hotel is its location in Shuhe. If we hadn't stayed here, we probably would never have found out about this great town. We preferred it strongly to Lijiang. It had all of the charm with much less of a touristy feel. Shuhe seemed like a great boutique community, with clean streets, mostly friendly shop owners and many different restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed just walking through town and seeing the sights. Baisha village is also a faily reasonable bike ride from here and has an even more quaint feel.

Overall, I was extremely happy with our stay and I can't thank Jet enough for his help.

It is true that people make a place so it was with some aprehension that we ventured into "rural" China given the less than glowing reputation of Mainlanders abroad.

Despite an initial glitch with the hotel room following some confusion over what was booked and what we received, the staff were professional and accomodating to a degree expected of a highly regarded 5 star hotel accusotmed to well seasoned business travellers.

The much raved about Jet is truly worthy of his reputation. He goes out of his way to help and is well informed.

Is my first post on tripadvisor and have really only signed-up to tell you all about how terrific this place is.

Just to back up all the positive reviews already here, we stayed at Huifeng Inn for 3 nights recently on a friend's recommendation and were very impressed. Loved the attention to detail in the hotel's design- great ambience with antique and rustic style decor, yet comfortable and well-equipped. Staff (in particular Jet) made a real effort to assist with booking tours, transport, giving advice on restaurants etc. Also, we had booked a room with bathtub, but upon arrival found we had been put in a room with only shower. When we queried it, they offered us a discount on the room rate (without us asking for one) and actually moved us to a much larger room with bathtub the next day when it became available. Excellent customer service. Would definitely suggest to others to stay in Shuhe rather than Lijiang itself- far more atmospheric and not as touristy.

We stayed two nights at this hotel in a family room as we were a group of three. The room was extremely spacious, utterly comfortable and most importantly warm and homely. The hotel interior was decorated beautifully and reflected the local culture and style. The garden was well maintained with flowers in bloom all around the hotel complex. There were a lot of delightfully arranged common areas, with tea and local fruits freely available. These little spaces felt truly like one was seated at home in your very own cozy living room and enjoying tea with friends. There was also free Wifi provided within our room.

One key point that made this stay truly memorable was the exceptional service provided by the wonderful staff member named “Jet”. Given that we were in a more rural part of China, and being foreigners’ communication was a concern. However “Jet” was always available to help speak to us in English, understand what we wanted, and then help translate this to our taxi /guides. This made our trip extremely easy and stress free. His attitude and desire to help didn’t end when his official duties were done, even on his day off he helped to sort out our requirements for a sightseeing trip and/or deal with local people on the ground or by phone. He was always proactive and even before we could request for help, he would take the initiative to organize the required facilities for us. We noticed that this service standard set by “Jet”, was purely self motivated, and extended not only to the guests of the hotel, but also to his colleagues and even travelers at nearby restaurants who have communication issue when reading food menu. I am sure that the owner of this hotel be very proud with his effort. My friends and I have realized that no matter how lovely or luxurious the hotel you stay in might be, it would only be really appreciated and remembered based on the warm and attentive service you get. This hotel & stay is of real value and a great choice for a “home away from home”. We recommend to stay here whole heartedly.

Room Tip: Family room where have two bedrooms and the living room.

We came for 2 nights and decided to stay for another night because of the Amazing service from Jet!
He is a great guy that helped us a lot!
We came with all my family, me &my boyfriend, my brother my parents, my sister her husband and their baby and we all loved the hotel very much!
On the first day they prepare a party for us with traditional Lijiang dancing, they prepare dinner and breakfast for us when ever we ask and they book for us all the activities and the transportation for free!

I highly recommend this hotel and this location to stay in Lijiang.

Thank you Jet!
