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

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
