Stayed at Tina's and walked from there to Halfway (yes the opposite way that most people will do it). Didn't think the walk would take so long for us but maybe because basically, I'm not fit. ha ha. The awesome thing which made us love Halfway though, was the fact that they could drive us back down to Tina's after...

This review is strictly for the lunch, not a stay in the Inn. The views are great. Service was warm and friendly. They let us plug in about four different power adapters to charge up. Food was just fine. This place was a nice break for us during the TLG hike. If I needed to stay here, I would have...

We had heard about people staying at Halfway Guesthouse and knew it was a popular place to stop on the Tiger Leaping Gorge. But it turned out to be the most disappointing place we've ever stayed in our entire trip in Yunnan. The bathroom was gross it looked like it hasn't been cleaned for weeks/months (some parts of the floor...

Before doing the Tiger Leaping Gorge trek, we checked out the reviews for all the hostels and decided we wanted to stop at the Halfway Guesthouse if we were able to get there before dark. The Halfway Guesthouse was described as a great place. It actually is, but it is SUPER busy, and getting bigger and bigger so if you...

This guesthouse is nothing special except for the views from the rooms. The food was good but we had to wait quite a while. The rooms and bathrooms (no shower curtain or tray) are basic and clean but without any charm. The man that checked us in and out was not agreeable. Basically this guesthouse if fine for a one...

We stayed here for one night while in the Tiger Leaping Gorge. When we arrived in the afternoon, they were too busy to check us in or to take our lunch order. After about 30 minutes, a Mandarin speaker with us finally just went into the kitchen/office and got our key. We booked a room in the new building for...

The shower had no hot water, and the food was delicious but made us feel sick (which wasn't good for the second day of the hike). The room was nice but a little too costly. The view from the balcony is great though.

Stayed here during our trek across tiger leaping Gorge. Trail is very straightforward to follow with red signs throughout. Although the beginning is a little confusing. After school there is a hill that rises ti your left (take this). We arrived at halfway GH maybe 8 hours after we started but there was a big group of us who stopped...

Arriving with a guide, there was no check-in, no welcome, no friendly host to greet us. Entering our room, this was a shock. Basic room means really basic here. Two beds, no decent lights, a terrrible bathroom, I presume a jail has better facilities. The premisses is a big mess, no cleaning, finished dishes just remain at the table no,...

Overnighted at Tea Horse, but stopped here for a beer on Day 2 of hike, on the way to Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge and Tina's (meh!). Worth the break just for the view from the toilets! One of the world's best.
