Story Inn is now called Old Town Garden Resort, and I stayed here just last week. The staff is wonderful, friendly and helpful. I cannot say enough about how nice and accommodating they were. They were able to find me tours and excellent guides for the five days in Lijiang. However, the rooms leave a lot to be desired, especially... More

Booked and stayed over Chinese New Year when accommodation can be difficult. Price increased 50% after the booking was confirmed without warning, Room was cleaned only once in 8 days. Breakfast was a disaster - the family restaurant appeared purposely to delay and then used unboiled tap water to make coffee when we complained. A full day excursion organised by... More
