Incredible experience: a waterfall running over the wall of the hotel. This idea is based on a poem of the famous ancient poet Li Bai. Staying inside you may think it's a heavy rain. But no: it is the fantastic waterfall. Go outside and see it! The location, the cuisine was excellent. Rooms were very ambient. But unfortunately a bit...

This is a good hotel in a great location - sure it is aging but it is comfortable, has great facilities, comfy beds,and everything is so close by. The views from the hotel are outstanding, the health centre is great if you want a relax or exercise.... and the ability to walk around the corner to go shopping or eat,...

I loathed this place. It looked nice enough on the photos and from the outside but as soon as we walked in it felt like we had stepped back in time to the 1970's. The decor was "worn" nothing had been changed obviously since the day the place was built. The elevators could not hold more than 6 people. We...

Good location for overlooking the pagodas and really beautiful walk along the river especially at night when everything lit up. A bit of a gimmick the waterfall part but still a nice feature. Food we thought ok. Rooms just starting to feel slightly tired. Bathrooms could definitely do with a bit of a refurb, but still ok.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff spoke English, there was a nice pool area with smaller heated pools and a bigger, room-temperature pool and a very comfortable room. However, one of the best features of this hotel is the location and the views from your room! We were overlooking the pagodas and could literally cross the street...

Restaurant very average. Staff dont...

Our room was on the east side of the hotel, which overlooks a street with lots of restaurants, little shops and that kind of thing. One of the restaurants has live music that plays past midnight, and it was like they were in the room with us! Other people in our group on the same side of the hotel had...

This hotel is located steps away from a major shopping area and the lake which offers a Disney-like boat ride at night. First class accommodations, service, breakfast. Very safe to walk around lake or the shopping area at any time. Amazingly, on the side opposite the lake, from 8:30P for ten minutes, the hotel becomes a waterfall.

Stayed here for a few days.Comfortable spacious room They put on a Waterfall Show every evening at 8.30 p m . This was quite fascinating - the Waterfall was a display of water from the top of hotel , the full length of the hotel. The proximity of the hotel is close to the town centre with Amazing line of...

We booked 3 nights at Lijiang Waterfall Hotel. When we arrived we had to change all the 3 rooms because of the cigarette smell. Be sure to book a non-smoking room! Location is excellent!! Super slow internet. Be aware - breakfast is bad. Almost 20euros for terrible food quality. Language barrier is huge. Can't believe that in a 4/5 star...
