My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-August, ‘16. It is a good base for enjoying the old area of Lijiang, set in a quieter part not far from one of the entrances.

The hotel is nicely designed. Built in the early 2000's, it mimics a collection of old courtyards with rooms on two sides in attractive two-story buildings. Our room (1222) was on the second floor, and was very large and well-furnished with two rather firm twin beds, 2 armchairs and a side table, a desk, a built-in luggage stand with space below for storage, a mini-bar area with a tea maker (no coffee), and a closet with hanging space but no shelves or drawers. There was no room safe. Wifi was pretty good for China. There was no a.c. but a fan was provided – Lijiang in generally fairly cool, so a.c. isn’t really a necessity.

The bathroom was large with lots of counterspace and a tub/shower combo. However, both the sink and toilet seemed fairly new but leaked water onto the floor when used. There were a few other maintenance and design issues also – the bathroom door wouldn’t shut, the overhead light fixture above the mini-bar fell down, and the room was rather noisy from outside activity early in the morning.

Buffet breakfast was served in a 2nd-floor room restaurant attached to the lobby. It was fair at best. There was a tiny bit of fresh fruit and eggs were available to order, but the rest of the selections were Asian and perhaps not the best quality. There were only large round tables in the restaurant, nothing smaller or more private. On the one hand this is a negative for the hotel, but on the other it means that we were in a part of China that doesn’t see hordes of non-Chinese tourists, a definite plus......

All in all the concept for the Hotel Lijiang was better than the execution.

Recently stayed with our OAT tour. Hotel is convenently located to old town. Has a nice room upstairs and was somewhat quiet except for locals talking loudly in the hallways. Two choices for breakfast which we selected the Western which was just ok with few choices. Be careful walking in old town do to locals speeding though on motor bikes.

From the front you think that the hotel looks great. But things went rapidly downhill from there. Our room had that damp musky old smell when we first walked in. The decor was drab and brown, and there were so few lights, it was just like we were in a cave.

We asked for another room but because it was high season, the only other room they could show us was equally damp, dark and dismal. So we stayed put.

So now for the list of other horrible features;
- Dirty room. The carpets were dirty, as were the sheets and towels, and the bathroom.
- No maintenance. As in most Chinese hotels, I think this department is on permanent holiday. Windows don't open, toilet seat is almost detached, drawers don't close, sticking room door, extractor fan does nothing, etc.
- Ancient towels. These were so old they were grey, threadbare, and actually had holes in them.
- Rock hard bed. Despite 3 paper thin mattress toppers, the bed is still so hard it hurts! The springs are starting to push through so it makes it wonder when the mattresses were last changed.
- Noisy. The hotel bar has a live singer into the night, and the kitchen staff are crashing around from before 6am. In between you might get about 6 hours sleep except the walls are paper thin and inconsiderate Chinese families return at all hours shouting and crashing about.
- Tried to get a drink in the afternoon from the hotel bar. I was shown the soda fridge! No tea, coffee, beer...
- The breakfasts are poor. I would add that I am speaking as a westerner who probably makes up a very small percentage of the hotel guests, but go to breakfast with low expectations.
- Aircon is either on or off. There is no temperature setting and the air gets no colder than outside.
- Roadworks. I can't hold the hotel responsible for this, but they are digging up the paths around the hotel to lay pipes, so no chance of a peaceful daytime rest in your room.

About the only good things I can say is that the WiFi is pretty good, and it is only a 5 minute walk to the old city.

One tip, avoid rooms in the higher number courtyards (ie 20 or higher) if you don't want to be wearing earplugs during the night.

First hotel in lifetime of travel that had no heat (wife and I slept in clothes).

First hotel to provide two complementary condoms along with toothbrush, comb, etc. Management must be an enthusiastic supporter of China's former one-child policy-or maybe the place doubles as a by-the-hour venue.

Good location in Old City. Exterior spaces reasonably attractive with lots of stone. This is being generous.

This hotel is in a series of small courtyards off lane ways. Quiet and with security guards on the corners. Pleasant room upstairs. Restaurants close by. It is in the Old Town but still about 20 mins walk to the Mu Palace. Breakfast just OK.
