We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff were wonderful and made my husband and I feel at home. It is without a doubt, one of the best personalised experiences we've had at a hotel. We would recommend it very highly.

We stayed here for two nights over the busy national holiday period and unfortunately for us this hotel was one of the only ones available when we booked. We live in China and have basic Chinese so it doesn't bother us if the staff cannot talk English. However what bothers us is

Response from 印心石屋, 总经理 at Lijiang Spiritual Utopia Hotel
Responded 21 Oct 2017
Thank you very much for giving us advice so that we have the opportunity to improve our service! First of all, I make a sincere apology to you as the owner of the hotel! Due to some personal reasons, I had to leave Lijiang for a while, so I let two young people take care of this holiday temporarily. I also found these problems when I came back, and I feel very sad! Firstly, I reclaimed their management authority, and the two young people already left here. Secondly we ensure that we will clean the rooms everyday to meet the five-star hotel health standards. Thirdly we are very willing to help every traveler in our hotel experience the most localized culture here, so we now have two new features: One is local white girl taking you to buy the most original ecology food and cooking the food in our space. You can also participate in the cooking if you want to have more food and social experience here. The other is that we can teach you to create a local ethnic jewelry, which can be engraved with your unique mark. You can keep the jewelry or give it to your friends. I believe it will definitely be a fantastic experience. We are looking forward that you can come back and experience our new service, I will make arrangements for your holiday personally.

Booked online, and provided my US credit card to secure the room. When we arrived, we were informed that they ONLY accept Union Pay cards (China-based). Why then would they allow the booking to be secured with a card they don't accept?? We then provided a Union Pay card, but

Dear friend, Thank you very much for your trust. Our family suite is double entry structure, on the second floor. On the first floor there is small suite with a bed and a 1.6 meter sofa area, I don't know which is more suitable for you. If you want to use a wheelchair in the old town of lijiang, actually it is relatively not very convenient, because the ancient town is a ancient stone road, often with the steps, it's all in order to protect the appearance of the ancient city. But our service staff is willing to provide you more warm personalized service, in order to help to you, because our hotel is a home, and you can send email and tell your special need to us. We are very glad to provide the omni-directional service for you.

Inconveniences that you should know about Spiritual Utopia Hotel Dear friends, I’m the host of Spiritual Utopia Hotel , and also the one who writes this letter. The reason why I’m doing this is because I want you to know each and everything about us when you’re choosing our hotel as your home during your travel, including our inconveniences so that we can live up to your expectation to and trust in our Hotel. First of all, situated within the Lijiang Dayan Ancient Town, all buildings must be of wooden architecture as demanded by the local government of Lajiang to maintain the ancient town’s architectural style, and Spiritual Utopia Hotel is no exception. But this has resulted in the not-so-ideal sound insulation of our entire building, which makes us unable to achieve the sound-proof effect of that of the 5-star commercial hotels; even though you can rest assured our sound-proofing is quite excellent as far as the wooden architecture is concerned. So far, the vast majority of our guests say they can totally accept that; but for consideration of our guests’ specific demand, we also provide 3M Ear Plug for free. Therefore, if you’re extremely sensitive in this regard, we recommend you to choose one 5-star commercial hotel outside the Lijiang Dayan Ancient Town, but just that in doing so you won’t be able to experience first-hand the local lifestyle within the ancient town. Another thing you should know is that our courtyard is a little bit small, with some friends saying it would have been more perfect if the courtyard is a bit bigger. Indeed, we could have made more effects around if the courtyard were a bit bigger. But due to the land size when we started this Hotel, there is no way we can change that now; yet it doesn’t mean that’s a downright bad thing when you think about the slogan of our Hotel “We’re One Big Family”, as in this comparatively small courtyard, we can all sit together chatting about, drinking tea, and enjoying the warm sunshine just like one big family, which provides quite a few opportunities for us to communicate with one another, and which is also why you usually can get to know your new friends coming from different places very well right on the day that you check in. You will not feel strange at all here, but will find this hotel a home from home. To tell you the truth, many of our guests decided to cancel their original busy tour plan after they came to live in our Hotel. They just preferred to stay indoors all day and went out to hang around the ancient town once in a while, savoring the comfortable time of ease, warmth and tranquility in Lijiang. And in the end, I want to give you another piece of advice. Spiritual Utopia Hotel is a very desirable place for you and your family and friends to enjoy your ‘lazy’ time. But if you have already made all those arrangements with the travel agencies to go up super early each morning to go sightseeing and return when it gets quite dark, as you’ll miss much part of the happy time and free wonderful services you can have here in our hotels... My dear friends, thank you so much for you trust in us. In my point of view, choosing Spiritual Utopia Hotel as your home is quite important to you, for what remain deep in your mind at last from tourism are your happy times. So we think it is very essential for us to share with you our advantages as well as the inconveniences you might find in our Hotel. Isn’t that what the family should do?
