Jim's hotel is really well placed in Dali, close to the old city (5 min by walking). When you arrive in the hall, which is also the restaurant, at dinner time you can smell the delicious food on the table. Little point about the decoration in the rooms, it's ok, but not not much.

We travel a lot in China and we are used to a lot when it comes to standard. Jim's hotel is a nice hotel with good beds. The central location is a pro. Still, it is not a problem to sleep, you wil not hear traffic at all. Jim is a very nice guy and it is cosy to have... More

We stayed here for two nights. First off, we are used to more luxury hotels and we didn't book this hotel ourselves (travel agency). Jim's Tibetan is very basic and only good for sleeping afaic. Nothing much can be done in the rooms other than sleeping. The bathroom needs a thorough renovation and the water from the shower was cold.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Jim's Tibetan Hotel. His mum let us in early in the morning as we arrived from the overnight train from Kunming. Jim had also been kind enough to advice us on taxi cost from Dali and facilitate our early arrival. With excellent english he was also able to advise us on things to do... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Dali. It is a just a short walk into town - not too far and not too close. It has a beautiful garden which was wonderful for the children who were travelling with us. The hotel is built along Tibetan architecture lines and is spacious, private and very comfortable. If this is... More

This hotel is recommended for backpackers, couples or singles. The design of the place is nice, looks like a Tibetan hotel. This place is better than other hotels nearby with a nice yard with chairs surrounding tables. Outside, you can try the nightlife of BBQ, dancing and local food.

The hotel is very pretty with verandas surrounded by flowers and a lovely garden. The location is great-near to town but not too near -and up a quiet street. The rooms had some lovely furniture and there were various heating appliances which were very welcome at this time of year.Jim was a friendly guy and his staff were the same.... More
