"The owner (Yang Lei) is the best guide you can get around LiJiang, not only does he goes out of his way to help his guests, i.e. picking us up with umbrellas when it was raining, transporting luggages for guests were just some simple examples. Yang Lei has a very good understanding of all the tourist spots in LiJiang and gives a detailed description of various tours available and assists with the booking of these tours. (He assisted with the booking of Lugu Lake, LiJiang QianGuQing for us). There is a tea corner where he would brew tea and exchange conversations with guests on everything under the sun! Room is very comfortable and location is very near to LiJiang Ancient Town. All in all, an excellent place for your stay in Lijiang with an owner with a human touch. "

"Due to delays and bad weather, my mother and I arrived in Lijiang from Shanghai after 14 hours of traveling. We were exhausted by the time we got to the hotel at 2am but we were very impressed by the handpicked utilities and extremely comfortable bed! The kindness of the hosts was beyond our expectation. Kaka was always there to answer any questions and reached out to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely visit this lovely family again in the future! "

"Highly recommended. Certainly one of the best hotel experience I've had. This boutique hotel in the Lijiang Ancient Town (Gu Cheng) has everything u would need, Air-con with functioning heater, Good audio system, DVD, Wi-fi, and computer in the rooms! This hotel was formally an Art House! While keeping the historical design and feel, they renovated the bathroom with luxurious modern fittings! The hotel staffs were excellent, very friendly and helpful. They assisted us in all the things that we need, providing maps, recommending the places the go, things to take note of, and arranging for all our tours and transports! They could even arrange home cook dinner for you at the hotel. The only thing is to book your room/s early as there are only 9 rooms in this hotels and try to get those rooms in the 2nd level as there are less privacy and may be quite noisy for those rooms on the ground level."

"The Bivou Experience is something that you can't get it anywhere in Lijiang. Sure, there are so many hotels/hostels/home stays in Lijiang but none of them beats the hospitality that the bivou provides. When you arrive, you'll be greated by the warm smiles of the bivou employees. All of them are well versed in English and Mandarin. Right away, you'll see a long table with snacks awaiting you after your long flight into Lijiang. The check in was fast and they even bring your luggage into the right for you. The room is bright and looks spacious. Inside you'll receive a small welcome kit filled with useful stuffs that will help you in the brutal winter in Lijiang. The room is nicely decorated with heated floors, heated toilet seats and blankets. Everything you need to feel comfy after a whole day of hiking and walking around in Lijiang. Overall, the stay was amazing! Quick shoutout to Charlo and May who made the stay memorable and comfortable and also the bivou team!"

"Aside from the fact that I found Lijiang to be one of the nicest places in China, this “inn” I would consider worthy of calling a “4-star” hotel. It was tasteful, comfortable, and impeccably clean. It’s relatively easy to find, about a 7-8 minute walk to the South Gate of the Old City; safe because it’s right next to a major artery commercial street, but also not exactly in the busiest center of town (that’s say, another 7-8 min walk further north). I absolutely intend to stay there again if/when I return to this town, although I can’t tell you which room # was the best situated, haha. Lastly, the inn manager “Little Fat” (小胖) was a delightful, friendly, and helpful host. The owner is lucky to have this young man communicate with and treat the guests as well as he does. I would believe it if this place is owned by his family (who knows). He’s always smiley and happy. Which water has he been drinking? 😉☺️ I don’t usually bother writing reviews to be honest, but this place deserves it."

"the main downside or upside of the hotel is its location on hill. it is a 3-5 minutes walk uphill from the central square of old town which is buzzling. do not try to walk to hotel on your own as this hotel has no proper signage leading up to the entrance. it is recommend to arrange transfer with hotel as taxis cannot bring you through the pedestrianised old town. they would have to use the hilly road from the other side of the hill near the old town north entrance the panorama view in the morning and evening from the hotel is breaktaking with the mountain range surrounding the low rise tile roof of lijiang old town. the entire property was beautifully converted from an old house with courtyard and balcony. service is friendly and helpful. breakfast is made to order noodle soup or portridge. my room on the upper floor was gorgeous with a small star-gazing glass window on the roof top and a balcony with outdoor table and chairs. the interior design is quite similar to the chic contemporary room design of phnom penh's the 240 hotel, with natural light and local wood. the hotel offers an outside food delivery service which charges only rmb15 where you can order anything from the menu of half a dozen fast food restaurants like kfc, pizza hut and local chinese fast food chain. i ordered two items (no order limit) from the room's landline and within 30 minutes, the food was delivered to my room by the outside delivery guy! it was excellent way to settle into the room and have hot food delivered to you. this hotel is very popular with locals, so i could not even extend my stay after two nights since i enjoyed the place very much.

"Stayed at a small local hotel in Lijiang old town for 3 nights before moved to Banyee Tree Lijiang for two nights. In general, Banyee Tree did provide quality service but staff could be more proactive in order to reach five stars service. Unlike the small local hotel where the staff would treat their guests as friend and try very best to accommodate your requirements. In Banyee Tree, when I walking back to my room at night in the rain, I stopped the staff who was on golf car, for the right direction. They just pointed you where to go without offering to take you to the room. While staying at the local hotel, the staff would waited for you at the old town gate upon your call to take you back to the hotel. Another case, when I asked the Banyee Tree staff at the entrance about the possible transportation to another old town nearby, they just said you better asked the taxi for a round trip though there is bus service available. However, when I asked the local hotel for places to visit, they gave me different options and recommend the best and safe options for sole traveler, Having said that Banyee Tree staff at the restaurant, front desk and Spa are friendly and willing to help. Overall I did enjoy my stay at Banyee Tree."
