I'm a little surprised at the low ratings received by this hotel by other reviewers. Generally I found it a normal 3-4 star Chinese hotel, certainly not perfect, but ok.
Perhaps because we were there in December, low season, we did not have problems with cleanliness in the room. The room itself it comfortable and quite large. We stayed in 2 rooms, one a standard and one a scenery. You cannot see anything from the standard room, but from the scenery you can just see Jade Mt over the roof tops.
I used elong to book the hotel - the price was much cheaper -300 and 400 Rmb than the discounted rates quoted by reception.
Breakfast is ok -coffee hot and eggs cooked on order. However, very few people there so if crowded, maybe a different experience.
Heating, one of the reasons to go to the hotel,only works from 8pm to 8am. Sometimes it does not work that well either, although rooms are better insulated than some of the guesthouses in Lijiang. Definitely need heating in Lijiang in December. Electric blankets are ok, but means the room will be very cold when you get up in the morning. Better to have heating.
Internet is possible using a cable, but you have to set up a connection rather than plug in and go. Makes it a little troublesome.
Overall, if coming again I'd stay in a guesthouses closer to the centre. The hotel, sited near the South Gate, is around 20minutes walk to the centre of the old town. That is ok, as the streets are nice to walk along- no cars, but there are lots of options in Lijiang and no need to stay in a hotel.
