Reviewed yesterday NEW

We wanted to go a new place in China to play Golf, after visiting Kunming. We decided to stay at The Intercontinental, and what a great property. Just awesome, with lots of character and life. would love to go back. The only drawback was the views from the rooms. However the views from the suites in the evening were exceptional.

The hotel is relatively new due to recent renovation after the name of hotel was changed from Crown to Inter-Continental. The hotel is beautifully designed and located next to the ancient town – Dayang. While the room is well-appointed, I personally think that the design is not user friendly. The bed is placed between the shower room and bath. The...

This hotel was one of the best ones for us during our whole trip. The main building looks so good, architecturally, and the finishing touches made it a place to remember. Most of the accommodation is in the grounds of the resort but not too far away from the main building. The units are very spacious and full of everything...

As a foreigner in Lijiang, this hotel I think is the best place to stay. But be prepared with a couple of unpleasant things. Most of the staff do not speak English. Many confusion could happen. I was not happy also when my laundry was still wet when they sent them to my room. SO, it is a great hotel...
