Nice Mountain-view from my room and Convenience with amenities provided. Free wifi in room but it's not good. Breakfast is a very Chinese style, more vegetables than meat. The Dali Old town is very nice place, recommended.

We stayed two nights and enjoyed every moment of our stay. Rooms a little tired but clean with enough room to move around. Breakfast was similar to most hotels we stayed in, western breakfast was plentiful but again like all the other hotels the toaster created long queues. this appears to be a problem world wide, what is it with...

Am writing this from the hotel bed. Well worth the money. Good view and convenient. Free shuttle as well to the ancient town. Couldn't get the wifi though, plenty of facilities with the likes of gym, a billiard room etc. Recommended for short family stays.

The breakfast is very Chinese if you want more than fruit juice, cereal and toast, but it's difficult to find other negatives about this typical Chinese hotel. It is not a five star city centre business hotel and doesn't sell itself as such. Rooms and beds are large enough, the latter being the hardest yet in China, but we're used... More

We had been led to believe that Dali would be quaint, small and old. One part of it is! And that part is delightful - old streets filled with markets, vendors and eating places ( not restaurants!) The new town of Dali is yet another work-in-progress industrial development. The hotel foyer was impressive with pink terraces reaching to the roof.... More

Was impressed by the quaint look of the hotel with lots of flowers at the lobby. The surrounding sceneries were beautiful as well. Rooms were slightly below average and were outdated. Restaurant buffet breakfast had a wide selection of local dishes and fruits . However staff at restaurant were quite rude. Did not enjoy the food except for the fruits.... More

Huge foyer filled with potted flowers/plants. There are no roll-on bed or triple room in hotel, so three of us were given a family room (two adjoining rooms with total four big bed but one master toilet). Rooms & toilet are clean with amenities provided. TV programs are mostly Chinese except for 1-2 channels on English shows. Breakfast spread is... More
