Great place to stay if you want authenticity, Jim is a genuine guy who makes you feel welcomed. All the rooms are clean and the decor is lovely. The rooms are non smoking but if you do smoke you can sit just outside on the balcony, or roof terrace which has a great view of the mountains and city. We... More

After being many times in the Autonomous Region of Tibet I ( TAR ) entering the hotel felt as being in Tibet. The entrance looks like a cosy livingroom decorated with Tibetan prayerflags and many photo's on the wall. Although the lady of the reception did not speak English we managed with some Chinese and mimics. She was very nice.... More

I was here two days ago and I found this a great hotel. It had a garden with nice plants, my kids say the garden was the best part.The room and bathroom were clean. The phone is working but you need to ask reception first to open the line. This is written in the information book that lies on the... More

This hotel was booked for us by our travel agency. The location is good, and Jim the owner is a nice guy, so I feel sorry to write this but... the hotel itself is just bad. The girl at reception barely spoke English and was more interested in her mobile phone than in helping customers. When she took us to... More

The hotel has the feeling of little Tibet. Jim the owner is friendly and helpful. His english is perfect. He helped us arrange all our outings and our travel to the airport. The food offered is both Chinese and Tibetan. I drank my first yak tea.... The rooms are clean and are equipped with everything you need for your comfort,... More

Jim is the very friendly and knowledgeable English speaking host at Jim's Tibetan themed hotel. Very pleasant break from being "on the road" in China. It has a wonderful sizable green garden. Great for kids and adults. It's only a couple of minutes walk to the old city of Dali and not so far by taxi from the new Dali... More

This is a nicely built Tibetan style hotel in a quiet spot just outside the walls the old city of Dali. The owner Jim and his family run the place in a very friendly manner, giving good advice and the possibility of renting of facilities for exploring the area- by car, by motorcycle or by bike. Though Jim offers tours,... More

- the hotel has plenty of room - people are pleasant and helpful - bathrooms a bit outdated - in front of your room is a 'balcony' towards the inner court. There is also a roof terrace, but the 'balcony' is great. - BUT FOREMOST JIM IS A GREAT TOURGUIDE. ON OUR TRIP WE ENJOYED A DAY TOUR WITH HIM... More

We had a room with a queen size bed on the second floor. The hotel lobby and the rooms are nice and clean but the shower looks a bit used. The wifi only worked by accessing the router from other rooms with weak signal. The phone didn't work either. We didn't appreciate that Jim smoked while serving dinner. The location... More
