This is a review for our stay at the restaurant after we finished hiking. The food was fine, however, the manager/boss at the counter where you arrange bus tickets was the rudest man we met in Yunnan. His temper is razor thin and you can tell it has a trickle down effect to the rest of the staff. I saw...

We stopped at Tina's after walking down to the middle gorge from the Halfway Lodge. We just got lunch there and opted to stay about 40 minutes down the road at the Tibet Guest House. We were very happy with this decision. Their pancakes and sandwiches were great! The staff were nice enough, though seemed a little rushed. After reading...

We had a private room that faced the mountains -- terrific view with little to no traffic/road noise -- just the sound of the water near by. Very clean room and would return as this place is really convenient. No problems arranging transportation to return to Lijiang. Didn't get the "warm fuzzies" from the staff, but they were friendly and...

I arrived at Tina's after 8 hours of hiking! They offer good food and the room was very spacious. The bathroom was a little weird, each thing is in a differente floor, but that wasn't a problem. The view is great, because the guesthouse is just in front of the mountains! It is also nice that they have shuttle buses...

Just popped in after the Tiger Leaping Trek, because it had been said that Tina would organize a Transportation back to Qiaotou or even Lijiang. Very bad idea. Tina or whoever was there ignored us completely. Because we were very hungry, we decided to have a quick bite. After we got the menu card on our own, we finally made...

Kudos for Tina's for making travel to and from Tiger Leaping Gorge so easy. The transportation links are efficient and great for directing traffic to them. Can't blame them for that! The rooms match the price. This is more a pit stop and people are either coming or going. its a good place for that - the real strength is...

Printed in type on the bed mattress were the words, “Hope It Was Happy”. But, it was not. “Tina’s meanies” (as I came to think of them), could not have been more put out with actually having to host, and feed, paying guests. Unfriendly, unwelcoming, unprofessional. No vibe here, but that’s because they don’t really want anyone to stay, and...

Dorm room was simple but after an exhausting day it was perfectly adequate. Good WiFi, not a lot of powerpoints in the room. Bathrooms average. Staff friendly enough and the food is super cheap and just fine. Everything is just fine for a one night stay after trekking.

“You can pay at bit more and get an upstairs twin room - we stayed downstairs as we were on a very tight budget. The difference is you get a bit of a mountain view from the balcony area and your window is not directly onto a road, rather above it instead. I also think you may get sunshine in your room too being higher up.”
