They have a lot of helpful information on where to go for day trips, restaurants, and more on arrival. Someone is always available to help. Another plus: the dogs are the cutest!

Pros: The staff at the reception were trying their best to provide a room that I would be happy with and to help with any issue. They speak some English and communicate mostly through translating apps and there are also volunteers who speak English. So we understood each other 109%. I had free laundry service there as well, very helpful:) I stayed for 5 nights in a few different rooms, the suite was the most amazing. Hope to stay there on my next visit to Lijiang. P.S. For the internet: they have wi-fi but you need to be ready with your own VPN for internet because most of the western internet sites are blocked in China.

Pros: Situated in Old town itself, it’s a perfect place to experience the beauty of Lijiang and its old town. What’s more to mentioned is the Inn’s cleanliness, facilities and helpful staff. The staff was helpful in giving suggestions, making of bookings for day trips and restaurants, and purchasing of local delicacies (eg. teas and flower pastry). The property also had a washing machine and dryer for us to do our laundry. Our stay with this property was really memorable and will definitely be back again, and recommend to all!!
Cons: Nothing, it was all good!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I've stayed in numerous hotels and I have never received a better service then I did in this hotel. On our first day, the boss lady helped us to book a show to watch and even insisted to walk us t the bus stop where we can take the bus. She even volunteered to find us to bring us back t the hotel if we are lost. The second day, they arranged someone to walk us t wait with us for our tour bus t the mountain. He even waited with us t the bus arrived. When my bf had altitude sickness, they gave my bf medicine and oxygen and told us how he could get better. They brought us t buy silver and we managed to get 10% off and the person who brought us there even waited w us till we finished buying!! That is rt fantastic service that I did not get even when I was staying at 5 star hotels. One of the Staffs even volunteered to bring us tea samples to the hotel so we can sample it at the hotel. And walked us from the north gate to the guesthouse when we arrived in the guesthouse for the second time. They often invite us for tea in their living room to chat w us on how we can enjoy our stay better. I would say our stay in lijiang was made better because of such great hospitality by the hotel. Thank you so much.

Pros: Staff provided excellent service, convenient location!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: ... I saw the comments, most of the people stayed there was im pressed and provided positive comments. Our problem was we only stayed one night. Which is to short for such nice hotel and town. There are many things to see around the hotel in Lijiang. Only note you have to be aware this hotel is setup like a resort several Chinese typical houses with very individual apartment in chines style, it could be that you room is 5 min walk distance to the main building. If you have time and no trip bookings like us, you should enjoy breakfast slightly later as usual otherwise it could be crowded.
Cons: ... the parking lot is complicated, but that’s usual for China, I guess this point only affect few foreign travels, which have a permit to drive in China and can get a rental car.

This hotel has 32292 square feet (3000 square meters) of space consisting of a conference center and a meeting room. Free self parking is available onsite.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing at all
Cons: No smiles no greetings no assistance from staffs at all. Breakfast below hyatt standards. Surrounding retail shop all closed. Nothing can be experienced as a hyatt managed resort. Garden and landscape not manged. After check in, we were driven by buggy and was dumped at room block. No luggage service or introduction of the room. Absolutely not worth paying the rate
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The food here was varied, well-cooked and all round wonderful. We loved the buffet restaurant, especially the fresh fish counter and the Chinese area where the friendly chefs whizzed up really tasty local noodle dishes for us on request. The breakfast choice is vast and the western-style bacon is as perfectly cooked as the Chinese baozi. Cleanliness is Hyatt-high. The rooms are exceptionally well-appointed (with ironing boards and decent hairdryers). Staff are super-warm, helpful and speak good English. The pool is big, perfect for swimming lengths, and the jacuzzis (separated by gender) are decently-sized. There's also a good gym.
Cons: I liked everything and was tempted to give this hotel a perfect 10 but knocked a point off for location just because we like to walk everywhere. If you want a resort hotel that gives you peace and quiet, the location of this hotel is perfect, with views of the snow mountain and an idyllic setting. However, you will need a taxi to access Lijiang old town (the hotel is much closer to the pretty Shuhe ancient town) and it's a decent taxi ride to the train station (around half an hour depending on traffic). We walked to the old town but it wasn't a pretty walk, better to drive to the (many) pretty areas and do your walking there. That said, taxis in China are cheap and plentiful, and there was a constant stream at the hotel. Shuhe is walkable and is very pretty, well worth a visit for souvenirs or a tea stop (new tourist infrastructure is currently being built).

Pros: The hotel is small but very stylishly and tastefully decored. All the details in the hotel are immaculately put together. They only have 3 client service staff, it seemed, but then it’s a small boutique hotel with 15 rooms only. Tucked away in the heart of the Lijiang Old Town, it requires a small walk through cobbled, narrow streets to get there, but their hardy service ladies had no qualms just carrying out bags for us on their own!! We were welcomed by a friendly, personalised tea service, and the tea was sooooo nice. Staff took great pride in their service and took guest reviews very seriously, hence they went out of their way to be helpful and responsive. It was a real highlight to our visit to Lijiang.

The family produces and trades own tea in Yunnan as well so I highly recommend to have a cup of tea while staying as well as homemade plum wine that has rich flavor. We even wanted to purchase but it was not for sale. Assorted fruits are also available in sitting area. Surprisingly all of them are complimentary. We will definitely come back if we have another chance to visit Lijiang.

6.3 Good
Pros: The space of the 2 bedroom suite. The view.
Cons: While everything looked beautiful. We had problems with staff English and knowledge. They were lovely and friendly. And actually we had a great relationship with the resturant manager. Who was very good. However things like helping us find a laundraumat. Or other services in town was poor and only offered in house which was going to be 200usd.! We also had Problems with fixtures in the room. Power shortages. Focets leaking. While it was a two bedroom suite. It hadnt been thought out. No beer glasses no wine glasses no plates yet had sink cupboards and a dinning table. No refridgerator that worked. The front door had no internal lock.

We have to commend Front Desk Manager Jing in particular for her wonderful hospitality. She was most helpful in assisting with our loyalty card. Great stay

Pros: We had a very pleasant stay at your property in mid October. The hotel was very well appointed as were many other IC properties we have stayed at. The courtyard was lovely for unwinding after a day of sightseeing or for a morning coffee and meditate. Service was impeccable. The host/concierge is around around but not intrusive. I would like to specially call out Niki Wang that took very good care of us. I had a bit of an accident on cobble stone streets, and Niki helped us tremendously and made us felt like we are home. Again, great property, great people! We would love to come back and stay if we are back in the area again.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good location on the edge of the old Town just a short walk from everywhere. Hotel is built onto a hillside so you can end up with a reasonable walk up to you room via stone steps outside in the gardens. That said, the rooms were fabulous, décor and comfort very good. We were upgraded as it was a quiet week, fantastic views over the old town. Breakfast was an odd mix but they were very flexible on what you could have, just talk to them. In terms of talking then not all the staff spoke English but they made every effort to help us out with electronic translators etc. Well worth a stay!
Cons: You do need to be able to climb stairs for some of the rooms, that wasn't clear on the information although not a problem for us.
