Some floors should be shut for health and safety coz there's ongoing massive renovation. Their Wifi is faultless in the lobby and the rooftop bar (read doesn't drop you out like many places in China). When I had checked out the guy at the counter didn't give me back my deposit until I walked back and reminded him!. Laundry of things like towels in China is cheap like peanuts and I I couldn't understand why they didn't supply me a towel in the dorm. Adrian, Perth, Western Australia.

This was a great character place in Old Town Lijiang. It wasnt right in the bustle of the town which was always very crowded and quite noisy which was great but maybe not for living. It was however still close enough for a short walk with heaps of eating palces along the way to check out. When we were there on Dec 2012 the owners were away and there was only one staff member Helen. I hope they gave her a HUGE bonus as she was fantastic...very knowledge, helpful with making arrangements etc
This was ok, on the whole the staff were very helpful altho they stuffed up our return booking. The food in the cafe was nice. Our 2nd room was much better as the first one had a lot of black mould on the walls. Proximity was not too bad .
This was a bit difficult to find but well worth the effort, the staff were very friendly & helpful and the room was very nice and cosy in winter. It was a short walk to the subway so good location
We have stayed at Lilac Suites regularly for past 5 years. The location is fantastic, so close to subway and long distance train station. There did seem to be less staff with good understanding of English this time, and it is disappointing that they no longer provide CCTV English News Channel anymore
Hello, We found this hostel to be really nice. The staff esp were very friendly and helpful when we had to book air-tickets quickly. The double bedroom with shower was esp nice, the bathroom really clean. The common room has a lot character and nice touches like fresh flowers, Poh Hock and Anne Lim
We were there in Jan 2010 for the Ice Festival, the lobby was a bit barren and the place is run down but the rooms were very well heated for minus 27. The staff esp the girl were very helpful
This a great place, nice and bright..the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was close enough for what we wanted to do as we walk a lot and the short walk to transport was not a problem
This was our 4th stay here. We always stay here, it is very close the train station where we catch the train to shanghai. The staff are always helpful and the place is always clean. It is close to shopping and the local train station makes everywhere readily accessible.
