9.2 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is just inside the wall around Dali Ancient Town, a short walk from the main streets. Considering that, it is remarkably quiet, and has a resort ambiance. It’s also close to a Lake Erhai ferry dock and convenient to Three Pagodas.
Cons: We were given a room with a decorative pond outside the window, which had a musty odor on arrival. The staff graciously transferred us to a room in a different building, which had an enclosed garden adjacent. The hotel doesn’t offer currency exchange, and a nearby bank put us in a long queue, which we declined.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: I like the bedsheet (yunnan embroidery) and the hotel design is modern yet semi classic. Love the room design and water flow from dispenser to fill in u water bottle. The bed is ok not so hard, they provide 2 pillows so its nice. The whole room desain was semi tibetian style. the room was decorated with mural and the bathroom door is so classic. They have little radio in the room that we enjoyed listening music to. The breakfast was so so, the white noddle was recommended with peanut topping. Also fried rice with 2 different veggies, steamed sweet potatoes and chinese buns as well as congee. They give free flow soy milk. The breakfast area is nice and i enjoy quiet morning there. they also have a nice garden and gazebo and outdoor area on first floor. Room has air cond too. get a fridge magnet from receptionist as the price is one of the cheapest in town. The receptionist speaks just limited english but all very nice n helpful. its around 10 mins walk to old town but its ok. for us bringing big lugage staying here is perfect as the car can stop in front of hotel. never bring big lugage to stay in old town. if u bring big lugage pls request room on first floor but i think their double bed mostly are upstairs. no lift only stair. better communicate if u are unsure. thank u for giving us good stay and help us to change room based on our needs that day.
Cons: I dont like the bathroom. well only my room. When u went at 11 pm and there was only 1 light. please add more light in shower area as its too dark. ok this is the chinese bathroom style, no glass in between shower, closet n basin area, so when u shower the water will wet floor area.

7.1 Good
Pros: The person in charge is very nice but not always around. The beds are comfortable and the washing machine is much appriciated.
Cons: The comments below have absolutely nothing with reality. After searching a bit i found out they were written about a different place (maybe the same owner?) -rooms are very basic and dusty with kind of a hospital feeling. -noisy in the morning
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. Good location and quiet at night. Lots of restaurants right around the corner or easy walk to other areas.
Cons: A bit of construction was going on while I was staying there. They offered for me to stay in other building owned by same hotel but it would've cost more so I chose to stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and quiet place, the hostel is in Chinese/modern style, the owner was very nice and ready to answer all the questions, room was very clean and bed comfortable. The area was very quiet and peaceful with other beautiful houses around,very close to the old town .would come back for sure ;)
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location in Dali old town with many restaurants and convenience stores in the immediate area. Away from the most crowded parts of the town. Staff were friendly and quite helpful in arranging further transportation.
Cons: The room I stayed in (Superior King Room) had a partial glass roof, which effectively made the room like a greenhouse on sunny days - very hot and stuffy. Also the room is listed as being soundproof. It most definitely is not. You'll hear plenty of whatever's going on outside the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It's not like the other ancient towns, you could hire the taxi or electronic car to reach the hotel. The receptionist is really nice and kind. He gave us amazing recommendation to the local mushroom hotpot restaurant with 20% off. On top of that, the hotel location is super near to the excellent bar where u can grab a drink with others and really have fun.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very helpfull staff! They can help you with planning and booking local tours! (in Dali it is not so easy as you may expect). Clean rooms. Good localization (not so crowdy as main popular streets), next to many little restaurants.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and a nice size. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean with hot water. Being in the Ancient city it was Convenient to many restaurants. They scheduled a taxi to pick us up at the hostel to take us to the bus station however the taxi took us to a private minivan that took us directly to our next destination. However the Desk person wasn’t always available. I would still recommend this hostel.
Cons: The desk person wasn’t very helpful with places of interest when asked.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is one of the nicest places I have stayed at for this price range. The location is excellent. It is far enough away from the overly busy tourist/foreigner street, yet close to everything.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Quiet, clean and good location!!
7.5 Good
Pros: Very nice location with a beautiful garden and near to the old town. Woth the price.
Cons: Room wasn't very clean and the bathroom was very humid because the air system dosn't work. They didn't give us many information about tours but explained us how to explore the city and booked for us a Minivan to Shaxi.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, big and cozy accommodation. The terrace is beautiful, the staff very friendly. We had an enjoyable time here.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The courtyard was nice and quiet, good for reading. The room was equipped with a kettle and proper mugs, decor is really nice, comfy bed, clean bathroom and even more towels than we need. We thought check out time was 12.30 instead of 12.00 but the guy was nice to give us a few extra mins to finish packing. The entrance to Renmin rd is not far and there are a lot of fruit vendors there, and in the evening an old man selling the most delicious seitan bbq skewers in front of Qiutu Hotel - a green gem I wish I had known earlier.
Cons: I think it was a little pricey for being outside the old town, and I wish they were a little more proactive on arrival telling us about the surroundings and so on. A water dispenser on each floor would be nice, I was glad they were not giving free plastic bottles, but there are free disposable toothbrushes in the bathroom, which encourages other people to use disposables even when they don't need them, I suggest giving them only when requested.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location was very convenient, both very near of the bus stop (Intercity and city buses) and very near one of the entries of Dali Ancient City. Also the staff was very nice upgrading my room (without me asking), just because I arrived very late and they knew they had better rooms that w wouldn't occupy that night.
Cons: One of the receptionists (the one in the morning) didn't speak a word of english. But we managed with the translator apps.
