Hexi Hotel, Lijiang
Ranked #277 of 966 Hotels in Lijiang
Reviewed 4 November 2016 via mobile

It is a OK type of hotel in the old city of Lijiang. Maintenance is not great. Breakfast is quite poor. It was a good idea to put it around small yards and it looks like a typical Chinese village. It is, actually, mainly made, for mass tourism and lacks a bit of charm and character.

Never come to this horrible hotel. Can't even call reception, all fakes number provided in guest book. It is like an inn, doesn't deserve 4 stars. not even a star should be given to this hotel. Room is dirty, very confusing, they never give you wifi password, try to call lobby reception can't go through. Once again, this place is awful.

This hotel is in a great location in the southern part of the old town in Lijiang. It has an attractive entrance and is designed on a series of courtyards contains just short of 200 rooms. The hotel entrance,courtyards and rooms are traditionally decorated and look great. Our room was 0621 on the second floor. Staff brought our luggage to our room from reception. The room was large with two queen beds(quite hard but ok for us). There was an array of furniture including chairs ,wardrobe ,fridge etc. The room was provided with tea making facilities and tea(no coffee) plus two bottles of water. The bathroom was a decent size but the shower water flow was intermittent and alternated when on between cold and scalding hot. Not very satisfactory but better than some other guests who actually had flooding in their bathrooms. Our TVs did not operate so I cannot comment on whether it was any use. The hair drier was similarly out of action. Breakfast was just about OK for a westerner but go early or it will be gone. The hotel and rooms were clean and wifi good. A shame the wonderful location and buildings were let down by poor facilities in the room.
I would stay elsewhere if I returned to Lijiang which we might well do as the town itself and surroundings are wonderful and worth visiting for a few days.

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.
