Sheena, the very nice Hotel Manager did an excellent job of offering us her help - two seasoned travellers from Switzerland - as translator ('lost in (mandarin) translation'), or to advice us on day - trips to the surroundings (Snow Mt, Tiger leaping gorge, Shuhe village) . This small courtyard hotel is perfectly located, in the traditionally styled old town, but not in the overly crowed part, which I would describe as too touristy and busy. The rooms were clean, and its comfort good in relation to the price. I would go back to the same place when visiting Lijiang again, despite the fact, that rooms in other (older) guesthouses cost half the price or less compared to what we paid. Wifi is for free. We were also offered fresh fruit every day for free. Well done.
The rooms are rather small, so that there is no space for a closet, but there are hangers. If one is used to a continental breakfast (coffee/milk or cappuccino, with fresh bread, butter and marmalade) one has to get used to noodle soup with green tea in the morning. Alternatively there was Nescafé with milk on demand, and a boiled egg. Bread could be purchased at the not too far 'Baking studio' with excellent pastries too. It is a pity that local ppl is not making better use of the excellent Yunnan coffee. A freshly brewed Yunnan coffee with fresh milk and toasted bread plus excellent Yunnan honey (in addition to the fresh fruit) would be definitely a plus. Maybe some small tables to be added in the courtyard, for breakfast
