This hotel is perfectly located in the old town not far away from the South gate. When arriving we noticed construction activities in the reception / lounge and the room was not ready. We should stay 3 nights in this hotel but one night was enough. The room was small and worn out, carpet dirty and the bed hard and...

The rooms were on two floors surrounding a series of courtyards in haveli style. Bedding good quality and spotlessly clean. Staff friendly and helpful when the room safe wouldn't work - they brought another one. Breakfast options were mainly eastern, but then so were the guests. The old city is traffic free so expect a long walk from the city...

Bad smell in the room. Very poor maintenance. Almost could not shower as the mixing valve was not functioning. You could choose between very hot or cold water. Location seems to be perfect, but problematic access especially during rain - very common - as cars cannot reach the spot. No English speaking staff. Problematic closet arrangement.

Hello Jacogal, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay at the Palace Hotel. The hotel is built in a traditional Mu Style and mostly made of wood. For that reason, we have to keep maintaining the rooms. This time of the year is raining season for Lijiang, as a result things are very humid. We are sorry your...
