MCA Ho(s)tel is just located a bit outside of the old city gate. Which has two advantages: It's near the old city, but you avoid the noise from there. My room was solid and I had two great nights of sleep, while some of my travelmates suffered from mosquitos and/or bathroom problems. The breakfast was very solid as well and... More

Location - brilliant. It is just a few minutes from the old town. The road it is on is loaded with 'restaurants' full of Chinese people and the seafood alive on the doorstep in pots. You know it's going to be fresh! General site - attractive with water features and a pool. (Although it was too cold for us as... More

I stayed as part of a group so am unaware of the cost of rooms. Mine was a good size but had basic facilities in a basic state of cleanliness. The cause of the stains on the bathroom roof became obvious as the drips from upstairs come through on to my washing I was trying to dry. There was hanging... More

Stayed here as part of a tour and on first inspection courtyard area and swimming pool great bonus. Has a snooker table that was like crazy golf obstacle but gave it a go. Central location near to the south gate was excellent. Owned by an artist and there is a small gallery which was nice and some interesting graffiti. A... More

Stayed here for two nights and it was a nice place to stay. First of all the location is good, very close to the old part of Dali, 3 min walk. The rooms are nice and clean and there is wifi in the rooms. The hotel also offers an outside swimming pool, table football and a breakfast, which is cheap... More

This MCA was very good for Chinese standards, we found the staff to be friendly, the breakfast cheap and adequate and the rooms were very clean. We had a twin room in block A of the hotel which surrounded a naturally looking pond and veranda which was nice to sit out and relax on. I would recommend this for its... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms were ok, small size but cosy. Bathroom a little dated. Good location just a few minutes from the old town. Staff not too helpful or friendly. Just ok. Pool was horrible, flithy things floating in it and green all around the edges. It's a grand guesthouse for a day or two while exploring Dali.

It's a decent guesthouse.The room was a bit damp but everything else with it was ok.Theres a pool there but wouldn't get into as it is very unappealing.About a 10 minute walk to the old town.They give a very simple but excellent map on arrival.Rent a bike in the town and hit the countryside,magnificent.

We stayed here as part of a tour so can't comment as to the value of the room rate but given the cost of our tour I expected better. The location is great, a short walk from the south gate past local tradesmen and restaurant's. There is a bike hire place across the road that's reasonable if you want go... More

We went here as part of a tour. The rooms were a good size and clean, the bathrooms however all needed some attention both to maintenance and plumbing. The rooms are serviced everyday but the reception staff aren't very helpful, they said we could print something but when I opened the email to print they said they didn't have a... More
