Spacious enough with airconditioning. The staff is very very friendly and the breakfast is just brilliant. Take the bananabread!!!! Shuhe is... More

Good point! 1. The accommodation is in convenient access as it is closely located in Shuhe Ancient Town. However, it is separated from Lijiang Old Town which is a popular sightseeing spot, so make sure to position yourself in the exact location. 2. The management know-how of the owner is excellent. He is fluent in English, helps and supports travelers... More

My mother and I stayed at this Guesthouse for one night. It was easy to find, which is unique for Lijiang, as the walking streets in Old Town are confusing. The atmosphere was calm and beautiful, with the open air courtyard, flowers, and beautiful decore. The staff spoke Enlgish and were a great help when we were planning our transportation... More

My priority for visiting this place was Tiger Leaping Gorge. The Maple Leaf is located right in the Shuhe area or the old town. Much of the area is closed to vehicular traffic. The taxi driver dropped me at the wrong place. A call to Paul and he came on a motorbike to pick me up without any fuss or... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maple Leaf Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful, and spoke perfect English (thank you Sally and Paul!) They were always available to answer any questions.

I stayed here with a group for a few days and loved it. Will and his family provided us with great breakfasts and a wonderful welcome to this lovely town. The beds were great and comfortable and Will and the family were brilliant hosts. Did I mention the lovely banana bread for breakfast?

The Maple leaf in is just superb for a budget stay. Hosts, Wil and Anna, and their happy staff are very cheerful and accommodating to all who stay there.

“A room upstairs and located at the back of the inn could be quieter. Note there is no lift or escalator so heavy luggage bags could be a problem. Then again the staffs helped us with our luggage. So you need not worry.”
