My son and me stayed at Jim's Tibetan Hotel for two nights in October 14. Jim, the owner, speaks English very good and is keen to help with almost everything, e.g. trips, transports etc. The rooms are quite nice as well, as they have radiators and heating blankets, which makes them very comfortable especially on cold days. The rooms are... More

My sister and I recently stayed at Jim's Hotel in Dali and it was great. The room was huge- actually two beds in two separate rooms- and very comfy. The room had some pretty details and the outdoor hallway was lovely! They have a rooftop where you can relax and look at the stars (and giant Cang Shan mountain range)... More

Had debated between a 3 or 4 but went with a 3. We stayed for 2 nights in October this year after reading all the reviews. I think that yes it is a bit more expensive than other places in Dali but Jim's English is great and he can arrange car and driver for you. He was a bit expensive... More

We stayed here one night. We turned up on the day and they were able to give us a great room for a very good price. A double room with a toilet was about 80rmb. Another great reason to stay here is the location. It's very central and everything is walking distance.

The hotel looks beautiful with lots of colour and has a beautiful garden. Jim the host is very friendly and helpfull and speaks english very well. The only bad thing is he smokes a lot. The rooms have a tibetan atmosphere. The room was clean when we arrived but they didn't clean the bathroom very well during our stay. We... More

We really enjoyed our time in Dali and part of that experience is staying at Jim's. The hotel is a beautiful Tibetan style property and is fully modern and comfy. The value for the money is outstanding. Jim speaks excellent English and arranged rides for us to the Airport and to Lijiang - Tiger Leaping Gorge.

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
