Four of us just spent four nights in this fantastic little hotel in April. We arrived Lijiang Airport on a late Thursday night. The hotel arranged free pickup for us at the airport. After arriving at the hotel, Catherine (the hotel manager) and her staff helped to transfer our heavy baggages into our rooms. The rooms are well laid out and quite modern. However, the shower and bathroom are equipped with see through glass doors. It did take me and my roommate some time to get used to this very "opened" concept. The bed and bedding were super comfortable. Although I had to share a bed with my friend, the king size bed was more than adequate in size for two adults.
Breakfasts were American style with toasts, eggs, ham, tea and coffee. Because Lijiang people are used to cooking with lots of oil, you might want to request Catherine and her staff to cut back on the oil. Catherine and her two young helpers were all very friendly and receptive to our comments. Whether we wanted slightly darker toasts, or pan fried versus poached eggs, they did their best to meet our needs.
The hotel itself is very conveniently located. It's not far from the main road and yet is only a few minutes away from the old Lijiang city. Catherine showed us some of the nicer rooms on higher grounds (within the hotel complex). Some of them, like the honey moon suite, are huge and very private. If one is not concerned about walking up extra stairs or higher elevations, then these rooms would be good options.
I am a frequent traveller who normally stays at chain hotels such as the Holiday Inn and Crown Plaza. But this little hotel really surprised me by the level of attentive service their manager, Catherine, and their staff were able to offer us. On our last day, Catherine walked us all the way to the wet market nearby because my friends wanted to check out what kind of fresh vegetables and fruits were sold there. I don't expect that any chain hotels would be able to offer this level of personal service to their guests. I would not hesitate to recommend the Lijiang Emerald Boutique Hotel to my friends, relatives and fellow travellers.
