10,0 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautifully appointed with charming traditional trimmings and all the amenities you need. In an especially cold winter, our spacious room that overlooks the river is comfortably heated. Amy, cousin of the owner of the guesthouse, is especially hospitable. She helped with many of our arrangements and gave us great tips on where to go for good food. We enjoyed having tea with her, watching her prepare it the traditional way and chatting with her. We stayed 6 nights and wished we stayed longer.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The property is beautiful. The room was big and comfortable. The amenities provided were good. The location was also great, right by the river and in the middle of the old town. The attention to service was good : they provided a more than decent take away breakfast due to our early departure.
Cons: Our major concerns are related to the staff training. When we arrived, there was some pee on the toilet seat. Our room was on the ground floor and we suspect that it is often used by the staff to do their needs. The second time was then the staff entered our room to add an additional layer to our bed.He came in without any explanation (we didn’t request the additional layer) and did his job as if we were not here. The minimum would have been to knock and ask whether he could come in.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beautiful and the location is very good. The bedroom was comfortable and the beds were comfy. There was some communication issues, but not a biggie. We were there for Christmas and were told that there was a Christmas buffet but we could also order a la carte meals at the Chinese restaurant. We didn't want a buffet, so when we went to the Chinese restaurant, we were told that everything was buffet. We could only have a la carte meals at the lobby lounge - which we ended up at. The location of the hotel is excellent as you are just next to the Old Town. Apart from that miscommunication with that one staff, the rest were very nice. We could even go the the sister hotel Indigo, for a meal. The decor and the architecture of the hotel is stunning and you have a view of JDSN from the lobby, which takes your breath away.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was lovely.
9,2 Excellent

Pros: This hotel is amazing, view from the lobby is unbelievable! The room is great, large and very confortable. Location is very good, so nice to walk to historical center from the hotel. Great staff, all attentive and polite. They don´t speak fluent english (neither I :)), but remember you are in China and almost all guest are from Asia, not from Europe or States. By the way, all city is like this! Great manager at the Hotel (with perfect English).
Cons: Breakfast was not my favourite, but is good considering that almost all guests were from Asia.
