Have just got back from a 3 week trip to Yunnan. Stayed 1 night in this hotel and it was like going back in time it had such a lovely atmosphere. Our room did not have a door to bathroom/toilet which makes it a little too intimate and the walls are paper thin, but if you can accept this do stay here. The staff are charming and the meal they cooked us could have graced any London restaurant. If possible get there on a Friday for the weekly market, you will not be dissapointed.
