Great hotel to stay at, just make sure your taxi driver knows which location to drop you off at; otherwise you will have a long walk searching.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very good hotel given price and location"
given the price and location, and compared to other small hotels in the city center, this is an excellent place to stay at. the hotel has a very traditional lijiang feel to it, as many small hotels do, but what makes this hotel standout is the modernity of the rooms. surprisingly the bedroom, bathroom, lighting, etc. were pretty modern. location is […] pretty good, a short walk from the central part but the walk is enjoyable. hotel staff spoke decent english. highly recommend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good location"
The room does not look at their photos at all! Not a good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK room with a dreadful sewer smell."
Expedia shows this hotel as 4 stars. I saw it rated at 5 stars... It is ABSOLUTELY NOT a 4 star hotel. The sewer smell from the bathroom permeates the air and is dreadful. The paint is pealing off in many places in the room and in the bathroom. I would not stay at this hotel again. If I were to go there again, I would rather book a room in Suhe Village. […] Lijiang is too commercial for my taste. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"yi bang residence on the edge of old lijiang"
well situated for pick-ups and drop offs the yi bang residence offers friendly staff who speak good english and are always there for advice. Our room was spacious and well appointed with two wide screen TV's and a lovely bath. Security was very good and breakfasts if somewhat 'samey' were perfectly acceptable. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Hint.....early […] september is wet night and day!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
飯店環境很不錯，但是離古城區有點距離，整體上來說，下次去還是會選擇他。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Yi Bang a Lijiang : un havre de paix"
Dans la petite cité de Lijiang pleine de monde, de boutiques, de touristes, Yi bang residence est un havre de paix. Situé au début d'une rue de la vielille ville sans boutiques, l'hotel est charmant. servie par des hôtesses extrêmement bienveillantes, charmantes et prêtes a vous aider. Les chambres sont calmes, très confortables (lit, linge de lit, […] , salles de bains bien équipées, mini bar, TV à écran plat avec un bon choix de chaines, Internet gratuit). Bref un rapport qualité - prix vraiment excellent et rare!! Enfin le petit dejeuner est très bon et frais - soit chinois, soit occidental et de superbes gateaux faits maison - A recommander de toute urgence!!

"Wonderful Hotel - Great Stay"
07/23/13 Galavant123 Fort Lauderdale
We stayed 5 nights in this wonderful hotel. It was very comfortable. We had a beautiful room with its own outdoor living area in addition to a beautiful green and private outdoor patio area. Such a great stay. The staff at the front desk, particularly Lorna, was very helpful. When we wanted to arrange a tour, Lorna walked over with us to the tour company a few doors away and helped translate our wishes for a tour to Tiger Leaping Gorge. The breakfast staff was also very attentive and friendly. This is a smaller, beautiful hotel in a architechtually stunning location of Lijiang. Not to be missed on a thorough tour of China.
"Great room and breakfast; english difficulties and limited amenities"
05/24/13 Sharif_K_Canadian Berkeley, California
Loved our room; comfortable and stylish. The only two issues we had were that no matter the time of day, no one at reception seemed to be able to understand english and it was a real struggle. The other was that they only have 1 iron and it took a long time to get it when we needed it.
"Cozy rooms, close to old town"
04/07/13 Abhineet_Sawa Gurgaon
Hotel/Old town, are good 25kms from airport. Taxi s are not allowed in old town, so you will have to drag your bags upto 100m. Alternatively you can request hotel to send an electric golf cart to pick your stuff. The hotel is around 1.5 kms for bus station, 0.5 kms from old town center and 2 kms from black dragon pool. You must figure out how to get back to hotel - because people dont speak English and they cant guide you. Rooms are small but very cozy. There s no bath tub. In room fitting and lighting looks new. The beds are good and sleep quality is good. The staff is very friendly and professional. They can do a reasonable bit of english. The staff can send things like iron if required. They can also connect you with tour operators. As a non Chinese I did appreciate the break fast. You also get wifi in rooms If you visit the Jade Dragon mountain, preserve the yellow slip. This can be used at other locations such as black dragon pool. Besides these points Lugu lake and Tiger leaping gorge are must dos. You do NOT need the oxygen cylinder per person. One cylinder per group is good enough.
"too expensive and wrong room"
10/03/12 mistelbe CH-Eschenbach LU
We did choose this hotel according reviews also from other websites. Unfortunately it was not as we expected. The location was perfect, the breakfast good but we had several troubles: first it was not possible to pick up us from taxi (the luggage cart was damaged). We have booked a grand suite from Agoda, acc. description 50sqm. The given room was max. 28sqm and very poor furnished (nothing to do with grand suite shown on Hotel website). My chinese wife tried 3 times to get a better room, they showed also 2 others but none of them similar and nice as the 41sqm grand suite as on hotel website. I think we have received a very poor standard room in the oldest and most poor garden of the resort.
"a nice small hotel on the border of the old town"
07/26/12 hansvink belgium
We had the suite (is more a junior suite). Comfortable with relaxing beds and a very small sitting area. Only the domotica didnot work properly, i.c. was not practical. If you needed only light in the bathroom, you got light in almost the whole suite. Some of the staff speak English; others don't. We asked at the reception for a massage and werte adviced to a nearby hotel (Waika hotel?). This experience was wonderful! Do experience it yourself when you stay in this hotel. Unfortunately other (Asian) guests often made much noice in the corridors ('streets alongside the room'). This happened on several days and on early hours; not ideal for a good sleep. The breakfast room is too small for the amount of guests (and if you are tall; watch your head). The breakfast itself was reasonable. Although on several days various products happened to be out of stock.The hotel is located on the border of the old town. From the parking area you are brought with electric cars to the reception. The old town is nice to see, but has become very touristic. Very positive; we did telephone the hotel a day prior to our arrival because of a late arrival. As a service the hotel took care for a free pick-up from the airport!
"We were happy"
06/02/12 Albuquerque_NMGeezer Albuquerque, NM
We selected this hotel for 3-days based largely on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Th e taxi driver had trouble finding it but I had him call the hotel and they gave him directions to the outside pickup point and the "golf cart" was waiting to pick us up. I found the front desk to have passable English if you are just patient and talk slowly. The staff tripped all over themselves to be helpful. The concierge even walked me to a pharmacy, translated and called a third party for an antibiotic recommendation (Montezuma's Revenge, Delhi Belly, Karachi Crouch-I don't know the term for China). Breakfast was pretty good. The room was somewhat cramped but the bath was ok. It was a ways to the old town "action" and most of the maps we found had serious errors but after a couple of days we could find our way around.
"Value for Money!"
04/27/12 shinysparkle Hong Kong, China
We stayed at the Lijiang Pullman Resort for the first leg of our Yunnan trip and wished we had stayed here longer/the whole time instead! Pros: 1. Nice location: very quiet side of Lijiang old city 2. Very good value Cons: 1. Room, bathroom a bit cramped 2. We had an in-room massage that was not very professional 3. Breakfast could be improved
"Nice hotel, designed for Chinese guests"
04/22/12 FrenchTraveler001 Paris, France
I stayed in what they call a grand suite -I would personally call it a junior suite. The room was nice and comfortable, the hotel has a good location in a quiet area of Lijiang old city, with a refined decoration. A nice large flat screen TV, but only CCTV news & Deutsche Welle. The rest is Chinese channels. The breakfast is average and the fact that you need to walk some 100m on a public street to get to the breakfast restaurant is obviously not the most convenient. Furthermore, the breakfast is not very nice and more intended to Chinese tourists than to foreigners. Virtually no English is spoken at the hotel. The receptionists are not helpful: they don't take USD, they don't take Amex cards... This wastes the whole experience. Would I stay there again? The answer is no.
01/27/12 DORAC Shanghai, China
This is a more comfortable and nicer version compared to other local inns inside the old town. It's traditional Chinese buildings with connecting gardens and I enjoyed reading the history of chamagudao on the wall. The room is very nice and clean. I am addicted to massags (foot and body) and to my surprise couldn't find any inside the old town. I thougt they would have been in every corner. So I was pleasntly surprised that the hotel also has offer in-room massage which I enjoyed very much. The location though - I can never find my way back from old town... I'm easily lost!! hehe...
"Breakfast open air 4C"
01/26/12 woastscho shanghai
We are right now in Lijiang. City and mountains are beautiful Hotel is clean, nobody understands you. Rooms are ok, but having breakfast outside is just too much. Also hotelguests are mostly Chinese, so manners and food is not enoyable.
