Stayed here on our Wendy Wu tour. Happy with the hotel, but cannot comment on value for money. Lovely view of the mountains from the bedroom. An easy walk into the delightful Dali. Another good stay on our well-organised tour.

You should only stay in this Stalinist monstrosity if you have to. I had to because my employer booked me into the place. But I spoke with other visitors to Dali who said they were staying in charming, smaller places, and they were very happy. Everything about the place is dated, dingy, and worn-out. The carpets are stained and frayed.... More

The Asia Star seems to be primarily a ‘group tour overnight’ hotel with, when we stayed, 5 different tour groups all seemingly descending at once. This provided the problem of various groups getting up very early (5am on both mornings we stayed) with lots of noise. The hotel itself is quite grand with a super atrium with a large mural... More

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
