Hong from Vietnam
Duplex Suite with Mountain View
Stayed 2 nights in May 2016
Well, this is quite a tricky hotel to be reviewed either u'll love it or hate it, in my case though, I didn't enjoy it that much. The location overall was great as it lied in the Old Town with magnificient views and sightseeings and plenty of activities but it also lied at the very end of it, 9 out of 10 taxi drivers couldnt recognize the lane name and ended up dropping us at any entrance gates (like 5 in total) they could find and we ended up walking for ages asking for directions even though it was located inside the Old Town. Our room (another dilemma here ) was a deluxe suite lying ON TOP OF A HILL, I wasnt kidding huhu. No lifts whatsoever (this is a common problem if u choose to stay in the reserved Old Town), we had to climb like 4 flights worth of stairs to get to our room, which was so beautiful, so traditional, clean and yet so remote, too exhausted sometimes to enjoy it. Oh and it doesnt have a telephone :| Also, insulation and sound proof was terrible. It was early summer when we stayed but it got so cold at night, the room didnt have AC/ heater whatsoever. We had to wear sweaters, scarf and socks to go to bed, I coulnt imagine how freaking freezing it would get in winter? The staff, when awake, was helpful and nice and polite. But the morning we arrived at around 7am, we shouted, we slammed at the door, kicked it for half an hour but only the neighbor showed up, not the owner of the hotel, which was the 1st ever experience I've ever had; to arrive at a hotel and be locked out of it until 8am when the owner decided it's time to get up!!!!! SO overall, DO stay here if u want a taste of beautiful old Lijiang, dont mind climbing, asking for directions every time u got out, sleeping in a fridge at night. DONT stay here if u cant bear all the problems i've just mentioned. Cheers!

Good location”
We were upgraded to a large room, the honeymoon room. It was quiet even if we were in the old town. The staff has been helpful. One lady has a good knowledge of English and has been useful. We got a free transport to the airport since we stayed 3 nights.

On the edge of old town”
Location, room size, staff
The room had a humidity problem... Very damp thick air unless you leave the windows open all day, as we were on the courtyard level this was not practical. Breakfast ok, staff helpful in arranging a car and driver for the day, good location on a quiet street in old town away from the crazy but only a 10 minute walk to get into the crazy

Awful, No best things”
Awful, doors inside the hotel garden have been closed during the night as in a jail, no way to go out, some rooms are just reachable by climbing a mountain, at all not to recommend

Great value, excellent service. ”
Service was excellent. Kudos to the team, led by Katherine, for going the extra mile to help us throughout our 2 day stay in Lijiang. Really enjoyed the tea sessions in the evenings!
Overall it's an hotel with great value. Being centrally located in the busiest district of lijiang makes it convenient for travelers. Most importantly the hotel provided impeccable service which made us feel really at home.

Duplex Suite with Mountain View

Great location on a quiet hill”
Location, cleaning staff and private garden
We got the duplex suite which is great value of you travel 3 persons. It was located on a quite hill with a private garden, and a great view over the city with the mountains as backdrop! Very happy with the location, walking distance to the heart of the old city, but in the outskirts as to avoid the noisy restaurants and shops. Lijiang's old city is the hell of tourism and commercialisation, so try to avoid to live in the middle of it.. Staff was kind and helped us book train tickets to Dali. We told them we needed breakfast at 7 a.m. on the day of leaving, but when we came down to the reception at 7 a.m. we had to wake the staff up so they could cook for us, and in the end we got about 5 minutes to finish the breakfast - I even helped them with the cooking. Not exactly superb service..

Excellant, clean, and well appointed rooms.”
Beaurtiful rooms and management assistance that was outstanding.
The Hotel location was right on the edge of Old Town making it convenient to explore Old Town and to also get to places in the city proper such as banks and the bus station. The Manager spoke excellant English and would write the Chinese equivalent for directions for places we wanted to explore. When we needed to go on to our next destination of Shangra-La, she insisted on her and a staff member carrying our luggage the 300 or so meters to a taxi and then the Manager went with us to the bus station to ensure we got the best transportation to our next destination. She wouild not take a tip and taxi fare to get back to the Hotel so I placed it in her coat pocket and jumped in the bus. Before the bus departed, she climbed in and placed the rather substantial tip on my lap and left. This was one of many such positive experiences of our stay at the Emerald Boutique.
