Beatuiful outside, not so inviting inside

Posted Apr 21, 2012
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff if you speak Mandarin; beautiful outdoor grounds
Cons: Paper thin walls and no windows in the room; deceitful advertising of the amenities in each room
Location: Convenient for walking to the ancient town and quiet location compared to hotels inside the ancient town
The outside grounds of this hotel are beautiful! The location is also very convenient. I found the staff to be extremely helpful and kind, though I don't know what their English speaking capabilities are since I speak Mandarin. However, the walls of the rooms are paper thin. I could hear every TV show, alarm, and conversation in the room next to me. Being in my room was not relaxing at all. The rooms also have no windows, which was very disappointing. I found the description of "each room has a balcony" to be very deceitful, as it is a shared porch and that circles the hotel and the only entrance to each room. Overall I was disappointed with the price of the room and what I got out of it.

Re-named hotel Chateau D'Act (Paraday Sun)

Posted Oct 3, 2011
Good central loction next to Old Town but the rooms were shabby and best suited for backbackers rather than international travellers. Room damp and beds hard, Breakfast was probably the worst we have experienced for many years. Manager was helpful but we checked out after one day rather than the 3 booked. Best Avoided!!

"Very Cozy"

Posted Dec 7, 2009
The hotel was in a great location. The room was very nice but very small. The staff was great but very, very limited english. The western restaurant was not the best but better then some of the other places. The town is breathtaking! I would highly recommend going!

Great building; good location; interesting old town

Posted Sep 24, 2009
The hotel's architecture is made up of a number of separate multicoloured Chinese styled buildings that are joined together. This is a very attractive alternative to the traditional multistorey concrete box. The inside of the rooms is similarly stylish. The size of the room is more than adequate and the bathroom is quite spacious. Unfortunately, the TV requires 3 separate controls to use (one on the panel and two separate remote controls). For me, the breakfast was "just adequate" from a western point of view. I ate dinner twice at the hotel's western restaurant; the duck (on the first night) was excellent while the set menu (on the second night) made me ill. The hotel's location is very good, being at the southern end of the old city. If you arrive at Lijiang by bus, the cost of a taxi to the hotel is cheap (less than RMB25). The level of English is not great but a good effort is made (it's better than my Chinese). The old town near the hotel is full of interesting shops and presents quite well at night (you're bound to get lost going through the old town, but it's very intersting). There is a supermarket on the other side of the road (from the hotel) but it's ok only for drinks and snacks. Be careful about any "promotions" offered by the hotel when you book because the hotel may have terminated some or all of these by the time you arrive (as happened to me). Overall, an enjoyable hotel experience in a good location with a great building.

部屋のデザインがよく、清潔感もあり、とても良いホテルだと思います。 立地も大通りに面しており、車で直接行けるので便利です。 (古城の南門に在るので北門まではちょっと歩かないといけないです。) スタッフの対応もそれなりに良いほうだと思います。 麗江初心者にはもってこいのホテルです。 送迎の必要な方は事前にホテルに連絡を入れることをお勧めいたします。 (私は連絡するのを忘れていました)

Chateau l'Act Hotel à l'entrée sud de la vielle ville de Lijiang

Posted Aug 9, 2010
Excellent hôtel situé à la porte sud de la vielle ville, se positionnant dans le haut de gamme. L'hôtel est un bâtiment carré à 1 étage avec patio intérieur dans la plus pure architecture locale, idéalement situé près de nombreux restaurants . Les chambres sont spacieuses, personnalisées et joliment agencées. Le niveau de service est excellent et digne d'un grand hôtel. Nous avons testé le breakfast : ce n'est pas le meilleur, mais le choix est satisfaisant. Le rapport qualité/prix est bon. A recommander absolument.
