The inn was very conveniently located in the Dayan Ancient town of Lijiang. It's very close to a landmark site (the large water mill) and has several dining options nearby.
This inn may not have the luxuries of a large hotel chain but it certainly has buckets of charm! The rooms are set around a traditional Chinese courtyard. The wicker chairs, quaint stone table and Chinese red balustrades along the common areas transported me back to 17th century China! Each room's window opens up to the courtyard.
Inside, the rooms are simple but homey. There's a water dispenser, complimentary instant coffee, a small television ( with no english channels, but I doubt you'll be in the room watching TV much with so much night entertainment in Lijiang) and the usual toiletries. The toilet was small but tastefully decorated and defintely clean. Towels were provided.
The single beds were on the firm side as with most Chinese hotels. There were nice thick quilts. The room has an airconditioning unit which is also used to warm the room in colder months. The one in our room was noisy so we switched it off. But we really didn't need it since it wasn't too cold at night.
At check-in, we had to choose between a western or chinese breakfast and wre issued the corresponding breakfast voucher. The hotel doesn't have its own kitchen so breakfast is next door at either the Chinese restaurant or Western Cafe. We had the Western which served up a thick slice of toast with butter and honey, fruit with yogurt, sausages and eggs, and a mug of coffee. Again, this was simple but good. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.
