After a long journey of travelling, Arro Kumpa made our first time in China memorable. This small boutique hotel is in the old Town of Shengri-la, the room is very nice, good design with high quality of decoration, very comfortable especially its big bed! We had a BBQ dinner with the beautiful view of the temple. Hotel owner and his staff have an excellent service mind...we are appreciated.
