“Good guesthouse choice for Lijiang Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

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.

Room Tip: Ask for second floor room facing the courtyard.

Lijiang old town is famous for the many charming and friendly B&B and boutique hotels. What made the difference to me was that its spacious and extremely clean bathroom. We've stayed in many charming traditional guesthouses in China, Jun Bo Xuan is the best we've stayed by far.
- Great location: located in a quiet part of the town, but is only few minutes pleasant stroll into the town center. The walk is on a cobble-stone path next to a creek which is lined with many charming guesthouses and quaint traditional residential homes on both sides. There are lots of photo opportunities along the path into the town center.
- Very comfortable room: the room is spacious with a very clean and soft comforter. It also provided 2 good size plushy bathrobes, and almost 5-start hotel class bathroom toiletries. The bathroom is exceptionally clean with separate shower stall and toilet. Our room on the ground floor also had very good WiFi signal.
- Beautiful setting: the lobby area had an understated elegance with big bright windows to look out to the creek and look in to the center courtyard. It's very relaxing just setting there to read or chat with the friendly girls at the reception desk.
- Friendly service: each time as soon as we set in the lobby sitting area, the girls at the reception desk would bring us the local tea and fresh local fruits. They are very sweet, friendly, and also always try to help, things like suggesting places to visit, local food to try, or they'll just chat with us like friends.
- Delicious breakfast: we loved the freshly made rice noodles and the traditional local pancakes each morning.

There is only one thing I wish the hotel would improve which was that our room had only 1 night stand, I was forced to use my small suitcase on a luggage rack as the makeshift night stand.

Room Tip: Room on the ground floor had very good WiFi signal

Located just at away from the busy noise of the main square yet inside the Old town Lijiang.
Family style welcome with cut fruits and chinese tea on arrival. we stay there for 3 night. No complain at all.
Very helpful and friendly staffs.
Rooms are clean with modern toilet.
Best of all you can watch any number of Chinese series on their Set box TV.
Washing was done for us too
Breakfast is included with typical chinese porridge, noodle etc.
The front desk recommended a good driver with Audi car . Went to Laishi Hai and Snow Mountain.
Good restaurant serving Mushroom steam boat nearby.
Highly recommended and and a welcoming change from the standard 4/5 star hotel chain

Room Tip: Request rooms facing the courtyard.

This is a small boutique hotel on the outskirts of Lijiang, a bit of a walk from the main square. The bathroom is to die for, although you could not shut the door between it and the bedroom. A bit embarrassing if you are not a couple - I was travelling with my daughter. You have to hope that the owner herself is around as the rest of the staff don't speak english. They are all extremely friendly and helpful. You cannot take cars into this part of town and it was a bit of a hard walk dragging suitcases over the cobbles from the main road.
Free wifi available

Room Tip: Ask for one upstairs. The one we had was tucked away in a corner and was a bit gloomy, although extr...

I went there one week ago with my husband, children and my mother. I spent 3 days and everything was perfect. There is a nice lady who speaks English and she was always very kind and trying to help us. The hotel is very well located and the rooms were very clean and very beautiful. I recommend it for couples and families. It was a perfect trip! Thanks!

This beautiful charming newly redesign and renovated courtyard boutique hotel is simply amazing. Rooms were gorgeous and well designed, clean and extremely spacious. We were especially please and amazed with the exceptional quality of the bed and pillows. we had the best night sleep while we're staying there. There's a young lady who makes the most amazing local breakfast. love it and definitely recommended.

Room Tip: top corner with view is the best. although more costly.

Really enjoyed our stay at Jun Bo Xuan -- not only were the rooms clean, reasonably priced and full of local character, but the service was outstanding. This place is more like a B&B inn rather than a hotel where you can chat with the owner and other guests. If you like this type of casual and friendly atmosphere then look no further than this place. The location is just off the main Qiyi and SiFang Roads so it's convenient to go into town but at the same time, far away enough to avoid the noise. Highly recommended.
