We stayed three nights at an upper floor room. Basic accomodation, as we expected, but very friendly staff (father and son). The son picked us up from the bus station after receiving only refusals from the taxi drivers. Both were very helpful with finding a cheap ride back to Lijiang stopping at Tiger Leaping Gorge. From the terrace you have... More

We had an amazing stay at Kersan's Relay Station! The welcoming was super friendly, the rooms are beautifully decorated... Surely take time to have an aperitif on the rooftop terras and enjoy the amazing view!

Did you ever see a place with a lot of very positive reviews, but perhaps as many negative ones? We usually tend to give a hotel the benefit of the doubt and discount the negative reviews as the result of a guest's bad luck or the product of habitual whining. We did that in this case and learned, to our... More

The location is very nice and quiet (which can be an issue in Shangrila), but the rest is rather basic. The previous night we spent at a high end hotel in Diqin, so we didn't feel "dirty enough" to shower... the breakfast room was very nice, with a great view. But overall rating for this guesthouse remains average.

Well, I got to know this place through a leaflet provided to me by a staff in the Chalet where I stayed in Lijiang. I had no idea this place was under "B&B" and not "Hotels" in Tripadvisor. Since I had no idea where to stay and only arranged the trip to Shangr-la last minute, I trusted the reviews. Although... More

My wife & I stayed at Kersang's Relay Station during our trip to Yunnan in mid October and generally we found it only average at best, despite the rave reviews seen here. This was our first time in Shangri-La and the bookings were made by our agent and guided from reviews we had read about in Tripadvisor. Maybe it was... More

Kersangs was by far the best guesthouse I stayed at in Yunnan, and one of the best in China. The place is oozing with character and the view from the roof is pretty spectacular. The beds were cozy and comfortable and the shower was amazing! Super hot water and great water pressure with enough room in the bathroom that the... More

Had a wonderful time in Shangri-La due in large part to the stay at Kersang's. We stayed 3 days, 2 nights at the Guesthouse. The manager, Tenzin (she's Tibetian) and her boy-friend, Hendrick (he's German) were extremely hospitable and helpful with all of our needs. The accommodations are clean and comfortable, the facilities are attractive and more than adequate. A... More
