I booked 2 rooms in December 2014 for a three days visit to Dali University. Rooms were large, beds also king size, bathrooms also large & good. Reception staff sometime lacked a knowledge of English but that is to be expected as most of the other guests seemed to be Chinese tour groups or Chinese business people. The senior staff... More

The rooms are average -- clean, spacious. The only bad things were that the showers leaked (we had 8 rooms and EVERYONE had the same issue) and the bathrooms had a large window over the bathtub that is adjacent to the beds. There is a curtain you can pull for privacy, but just seemed random. There was also a ton... More

I think I was fortunate to stay here on a high floor with upgraded features. Room was nice and large, bathroom shower was interesting and placed incorrectly so that water gets every where when you shower. (minor problem). The view was amazing to see the skyline from the top floor, that was the highlight of the stay. Gym and sauna... More

Just checked in and already experienced 2 rude and unhelpful incidents! 1) 3 rooms for my family separated into 2 floors. Front desk lady kept on saying 'no' to our request for same floor. Asked her if they are having 100% occupancy but she said no. We managed to settled the problem subsequently. 2) asked for extra toiletries and was... More

I came on a business trip for one day in Dali, and booked this hotel hoping it would meet minimum standards for a non-Chinese ( I.e. Forks and knives, decent breakfast, and air conditioning). My room aircon did not work, none of the front rest staff could speak English, and they sent me a fan to help bring down the... More

I believe that Wal-mart is part of the hotel. The breakfast is not so good, but the rooms are nice and it has an excellent view of the city and lake. Though I would recommend you have the staff nearby in case some of the things in your bedroom don't work (TV for example).

This hotel is also known as Hai Wan International Hotel Dali, in Chinese. We stayed one night here and were given interconnecting rooms. The condition of the rooms were not good - broken telephone, loose hooks, erratic shower with water that is burning hot one minute and icy cold the next. The toiletries provided are similar to what you would... More
