I stayed at Sean's Guesthouse for 2nights. My room was a trekkers dream- the softest bed in China, two sun-filled windows, TV, heating for the chilly nights, lovely stone bathroom with hot-hot water. Lily cooks the most amazing food, which is served either on the roof patio or in the warm cafe by the fireside. Sean is an interesting guy...

We, the two of us, stayed at Sean's in August 2012. I had booked a 3 day guided tour which included transport to and from Lijiang and three meals a day for just under £200 sterling. In fact the return journey to Lijiang was on the monrning of the fourth day so all in all we had two and a...

Most travellers only hike the TLG till halfway. If you continue your hike, this guesthouse is a good place to spend the night. Views from the terrace are great. They were building new rooms at the time I visited (May 2012) Sean can guide you on hikes (for a fee) or explain you how to explore the mountains on your...

We had high hopes for Sean's, which we stayed at for one night on our last after trekking Tiger Leaping Gorge. It was a really disappointing way to end the trip: there was significant construction going on at the time (that didn't look set to end any time soon) that went on late into the night (maybe midnight). Not only...

My experience at Sean’s was similar to a lot of the reviewers here: • The hotel does not honour bookings. When we arrived, we discovered he had rented out one of the rooms we had booked. • Sean is incredibly rude and racist. When we asked him about the rooms, Sean was completely unapologetic but instead insulted us with racist...

Fairly basic rooms and food but acceptable. Highly recommended due to the location. No fancier rooms available in this area.

The rooms are nice, big bed, nice barhroom but expensive (240 y for room without view). The food is ok. But the owner is so rude, have never experienced this before. Try to ask a question of which he doesn't make money off, you'll be told off or lied to. No I will never stay here again. Down the road...

Sean was incredibly and unnecessarily rude to my good friend. Upon arriving at Sean's after a long day of hiking, the four consecutive rooms we had booked were not available and Sean tried to put us into a cheaper and less attractive room. When my friend inquired about why our room was not available, instead of apologizing, Sean launched into...

Not only the owner Sean tries to rip foreign tourists off by charging premium rent, but also is a racist against his own Chinese ppl, esp the Shanghainese!

On the last leg of our TLG trek we decided to stay at Sean's - because it was low season we were the only ones staying there so managed to get a bit of a discount - still 250 yuan for "their best room facing the mountain". The room was fine, nice actually, with heating, but look and feel seems...
