Stayed at the Linden Centre for two nights and was very impressed by the overall experience. Lovely rooms in the old but well renovated courtyard building with competent staff. Xizhou still has a very authentic feeling of an old Bai town, not being discovered yet by mass tourism.

The centre is located on the edge of town, offering wonderful views over the paddy fields that surround the building and the Cangshan mountains in the west.

Great retreat for people who are looking for an authentic experience in a comfortable environment.
