Hotels, Hostels and Guesthouses in Lijiang

Lijiang Grand Hotel
Grand Hotel, Lijiang The Thai-managed Lijiang Grand Hotel is the only non-guesthouse accommodation within Lijiang’s Old Town.
The location is excellent – right by the water wheel on the old town’s northern border and about five minutes walk from Sifang Jie. The hotel is a solid, though ageing, three-star standard: the rooms are unremarkable, but are clean and comfortable, and on the upper floors they have lovely views of the Old Town. Prices at the Lijiang Grand Hotel start at just over $50, including a buffet breakfast. Rooms have a few cable television channels and internet access. The service level pretty much matches the price.

Panba Guesthouse Editor Pick!
Panba Guesthouse, Lijiang For budget accommodation in Lijiang, the Panba Guesthouse can’t be beaten.
Rooms are very simple but have everything you need and are great value at ¥120 for a standard twin or double. Larger family rooms (sleeps 3 people) cost ¥150 and dorm beds are from ¥30. Minor gripes are that the rooms aren’t completely soundproofed, and TV reception can be poor. Among the many positives are the very friendly and helpful staff, free wireless internet, a decent restaurant, and a cozy common area. Although it’s a 10 minute walk from Sifang Jie, this means the Panba Guesthouse is in a quieter area of the Old Town.

Jiquanhui Hotel
Jiquanhui Hotel, Lijiang The best feature of the Jiquanhui Hotel is its location within a stone’s throw of the Old Stone Bridge.
This places it right in the heart of the Lijiang Old Town. Standard rooms (¥200) are a little dim and pokey, but the more expensive rooms are quite nice. And the overall design of the hotel, with its lovely central courtyard and traditional design, is very charming. Rooms have televisions and there is wireless internet access throughout the hotel. Staff at the Jiquanhui Hotel are sweet but speak little English.

Lijiang Banyan Tree Hotel
At the very height of luxury in Lijiang is the Banyan Tree Resort.
The Lijiang installment of the Singapore-based chain of luxury resorts doesn’t disappoint. It is a beautiful hotel with a design based on traditional Naxi architecture, sumptuous grounds and views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Dining facilities at the hotel are top notch while rooms have all that you would expect from a hotel where prices start at around $500 per night. The location of the hotel is quite secluded – about 15 minutes drive from the Old Town of Lijiang.
