Our apartment was clean and spacious with separate bedroom and sitting area. The bathroom was very clean but designed without a separation between the shower and the rest of the room so some water stayed on the floor overnight. The furniture in the sitting room was comfortable but the mattress on our bed was old and bumpy, and the pillows... More

We are a family with two children (5 and 7 years old). We stayed at Rainbow' Nest for three nights. Our kids comment: "It is just the best". The apartement is big with nice decoration. It is clean. There are many restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner around the hostel. The location is in the ancient town, in a side street.... More

Rainbow's Nest is a wonderful place to stay to enjoy Dali. My husband and I had a great four night stay. The rooms are large, clean, sunny and nicely decorated. You are a short walk away to the main tourist area which is full of cafés and shops. Rainbow is an exceptional host and speaks great English. She is more... More

We stayed here twice in January, in the same room. It was large, bright and comfortable, with separate living and sleeping areas. The bathroom was large and the hot water was plentiful. Wifi worked great. There are apartments available but we chose a room, not needing the cooking facilities. There was, however, a kitchen on the top floor available for... More

Rainbow who owns the Rainbow's Nest is a very caring and helpful host. She speaks excellent English and lives on the top floor so is always available to help. The rooms are large and comfortable and some have cooking facilities. Internet access is very good and free. A western breakfast can be obtained from a cafe called Serendipity just two... More

Rainbow's Nest (A/K/A Rainbow's Guesthouse) offers spacious, squeaky-clean rooms, a terrific location, a great price and helpful staff. Rainbow and Marc are friendly, helpful and attentive without being overbearing -- a hard balance to strike. Rainbow's Nest is right in Dali's Old Town, nestled off a quaint, cobblestone street where locals go about their business during the day. At night,... More

I think the best thing was location (although a bit hard to find) and especially the staff. Thx again for everything Raimbow!! The only reason we gave a 4 instead of a 5 is the noise. It was very noisy very early in the mornings (and we like our sleep..).

My third stay each year for three years is a testament to how much I value staying at Rainbow's Nest. This year I rented the largest apartment that had a spacious kitchen to do some of my own cooking. With a large fridge and a fully outfitted kitchen I was able to practice my favourite hobby - cooking. Rainbow's Nest... More

By far the most spacious and well kept and comfortable accommodation I ever had in that price category as well as from other similar organizations. Huge windows, at night no sound (party throwers were understandable and shut their windows; a 360 degree view on top the flat roof; free WiFi, all amenities, also fridge, everything in perfect state.

Rainbow Nest is nestled in between the happening Renmin Lu and the quieter streets of old town. It's not too far from the gates of the old town which makes walking to tourist sights such as Cang mountain and 3 pagodas accessible by foot. Across the street there's a really nice cafe run by two gentlemen and a music pub... More
