Xishuangbanna Elephant Home Hotel
Ranked #15 of 161 Jinghong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I have stayed in Jinghong a few times at the usual hotels. This one is different because
the boss lady there, San Fu??? , is Married to a foreigner and speaks good English, she Dai or Hanni- one of the local minorities. It has western service standards as she has worked for western owned hotels before.

The location is awesome because it's next to everything you need. With great food and ALL the Banking and post office in China within 250 meters. San Fu set us up with a laptop repair (computer city is right next door), awesome local food (local prices), She even brought one of us to get a SIM card at the China Mobile a few steps away!

To be said, we were on our way to Laos, over-land, and expected to take about a week to make arrangements and see some local villages. San Fu knew it all and had us all scheduled out the night we arrived. We took the extra time to go on a tour see some way out villages. She knows the coolest local tour guide that can speak all the local languages. We went far out for the real experience. Certainly not many foreigners have been there. Awesome!

Just lucky a taxi driver took us there when all other hotels I knew of were full. Just ask the shops on this street for "xian (falling tone) jia bingguan.

Room Tip: The corner rooms do rule!

This hotel is new in Jinghong, and it is a great find. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable, and the staff is very helpful. The view of the city from my room was fantastic. The hotel's location is excellent, is it walking distance from the night market by the mekong River and a few minutes away (by foot) from a whole range of boutiques and restaurants (including Meimei, Mekong and Banna Cafés). I greatly recommend this hotel!

Elephant Home (西双版纳象家酒店) is on the 18th floor of the building located at 1 Xuanwei dadao and from the bus station, you will need to show the address in Mandarin to the taxi driver: 宣慰大道1号黎明万象B区18楼. Upon arrival, you may check in in room B-1812.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have a great view!
