This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Great place to stay about 10km from Lijiang central on the fringe of another old town Shuhe. The staff are wonderful and its one of those little places you just want to hang out in all day. The rooms are awesome (the bed and duvet are amazing!) but there is no door on the bathroom so squeamish people probably won't be overjoyed. Pretty much all the facilities you could want but not a lot of breakfast options, lucky I brought my own!
