If you are thinking of staying in Lijiang Old Town, this is a good location. Quiet enough, away from the street where the bars are, but near enough to be near the action.
We had a corner room on the second floor, that was spacious and yet cosy, furniture is in good condition and the bathroom is nice with a good bathtub and separate shower and WC cubicles. Only downside is the sound proofing is not very good so you can hear your neighbors and their TV. Suspect you will have the same issue with other guest houses in general.
Cosy lounge area, with the staff always ready to offer you tea. Very friendly staff - two ladies Xiaoshi and Jingyue - who tries to be as helpful as they can be. Breakfast is cooked to individual portions (not buffet style), we were offered Chinese fare (noodles, soybean milk etc) which we were happy with.
We spoke and understand Mandarin well, so did not test the staff on their English. But one of the staff did major in the English language in school, so you are likely to find at least above average command of the language.
In a nutshell, enjoyed our stay there and the friendly staff. Will we come back a second time? Yes, if we are planning to stay in Lijiang Old Town. We peered into other guest houses on our walkabout, and don't think we have come across more comfortable one, at least visually.
