The Noah Cafe and Inn is located centrally in the old city of Zhongdian (Now better known as Shangri La). The hotel itself is comfortable, but the best part of this hotel were the staff. As well as being friendly, and with a basic knowledge of English, they were really helpful with all requests. For example, we were looking for a local restaurant to eat dumplings. Rather than attempt to persuade us to eat at Noah's, or point out a restaurant on a map, our host insisted on walking with us to a nearby recommended restaurant, When that was not open, she walked with us until we found something suitable.
Noah's Cafe is about 50 metres away for the inn, and provide western style breakfasts.
Other good things about Noah's - internet access is free, and if you need to get some laundry done, this is the place.

I did a 4 day stopover in Shangri-la when I was backpacking through Yunnan. It was a pleasant surprise to find western and mexican food at Noah Cafe for an extremely affordable prices(20-35rmb, USD 3-6 per dish). The portions were generous (a little too much for me tho) and the the food pretty authentic. The owner was a lady from the Mosuo ethnic group with over 30 years of varied culinary experience! I spent the afternoon lounging in the cafe as it was pouring cats and dogs. There was free wi-fi and I used their computer to skype with my fiance from the US for free (most cafes / hostels charge up to 1USD per half hour). A must stop for anyone coming through Shangri-la!

We just popped by with no reservation and we weren't looking for anything fancy. Literally just want a place to sleep for the only night we were in Shangri La. Price was very good, can't complain for what you get at what we paid for.

Staff was great, you can tell that they are kind hearted people. We had both dinner and breakfast here. While by international standards the food nothing to crow about, its actually very decent food while in the Yunnan province. Simple food found in a well cooked meal like crumbed chicken breast, spaghetti bolognese and american style breakfast were more than welcome after a lot of the more 'exotic' food found in Yunnan.

Only complain I would make are the mattresses were hard. But at the price, I won't say its a big deal.

FYI, there's a hairdryer available at the shelf leading to corridor of rooms. We didn't realize there was one until leaving.

We were in Shangri La for 2 nights and Noah's was a good "base" to work from. The room was clean, bedding warm and cosy. The bathroom was modern and very functional and the staff friendly and obliging. There is a large range of dvd's if your bored and a well stocked bar and refrigerator if your thirsty. Food was not an option, the guesthouse and the restaraunt are two different places. Noah's Cafe is just out of the old town and the Inn well inside the old town. The staff told me that the plans to serve food at the Inn were well on the way and that they hoped meals would be available within a couple of months.We were ther around early April, so if the plans are going to schedule, a meal won't be far away.
Cheers, Graham.
PS Watch the stairs....they are steep!!!
