“My best hotel experience in China”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I was in this hotel for 10 days for a business training; the hotel is so BEAUTIFUL!!! Staffs are very nice and super friendly, the hotel is such a hidden gem; unlike the typical hotels of this chain, it runs at a very "low profile" style, it connects right next to the old town, but if you don't pay attention you will totally miss it. The hotel has like maybe 20 small buildings, each no taller than 2 floors, in between they build pools, running water like a creek, bridges, is like a mini-Lijiang. all the architech designed is fully harmonized with the old ancient town. It is not the typical gold, shiny, gem-deco kinda Chinese style..I felt in love with this hotel so I ended up extend my stay just to enjoy the harmony. the restaurant/cafe offers international food, and the terrace is probably the best terrace in the world, you can really enjoy a cup of nice coffee and have the full view of Jade Dragon Mtn right in front of you and with the sunlight changing during the day you will be able to see different faces of the moutain..enough have been said, pls go and stay there :-) The price is also super good for value, of course is cheap like a motel, but really really worthy.

Room Tip: I have my room in building 13 next to a small "lake" on 1st floor (European way, so maybe...

We just had our all China team meeting here. I am an expat living and working in China. The hotel was very nice, and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Restaurants are great, and the food is good too. The hotel is located right next to many markets, street shops, restaurants and lots of bars with bands if you like. The rooms are nice, carpets are about due for new. But no real completes here. Nice stay!

I stayed at the Crowne Place Hotel in May, 2014, and can't say enough great things about the property. The hotel backs up to the old town of Lijiang and you can enter the old town right from the north gate of the property, which is manned by a polite and smiling security guard. The restuarant offers a wonderful, lavish breakfast buffet with breakthtaking views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain right outside! The bar is great for lounging and enjoying the views. The rooms are spotlessly clean, well-appointed, luxurious and very comfortable. We stayed for four nights at the hotel and it was sheer luxury! I recommend this hotel completely.

Room Tip: There are many mini-chalets. Try to get a room in one of the chalets close to the main building. T...

This is truly a great experience. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and some speak English very well. The breakfast buffet has a good choice. The highlight was the spa, I had a facial massage and foot massage and I can honestly say one of the best. The old town is at the back gate. There is a good size pool and gym.

This is a big resort with Chinese olden day building. Just on the south gate of the lijiang old town. Big room, clean. Fantastic service. From airport to the hotel one way about ¥100. All the taxi here don't like to use meter. We hire a car with a driver for ¥300 a day. Her ph +86 13988859092 Ms chan. The dragon snow mountain is beautiful. The entry plus inside transport cost ¥300 to ¥400. The lijiang old town is nice. Good shopping n good food. We did have a life snow mountain fish for ¥96 kg at the old town. But the new city restaurant cost us ¥368kg for the same fish.

Beautiful ground and room. Would be nice if there are some places to sit comfortably other than the hotel balcony, in order to allow the guest to enjoy the ground.
Very close to the old town. Quiet.
Expect everything to be VERY expensive otherwise. Breakfast would be very expensive to buy if not included.

Room Tip: a standard room should be sufficient, and large enough, except there is only one comfortable place t...

Stayed two nights in CP and one night in Banyan Tree during our trip to Lijiang. This CP is conveniently located next to ancient town, Duplex villas settings, gardens with traditional firewood piledup, some art decors and the most amazing thing is the housekeeping trishaw carts.

And, buffet breakfast has plenty of food to choose from. Try Tibetan butter tea when you are with CP in Lijiang. This is recommended.

Overall, a memorable experience.
