The Regent is a large hotel complex near the entrance to the Old City. The lobby is vast and open. Plenty of sitting area and it's needed as it seems to cater to the large tour groups. There are a couple of shops on the first floor and arts being sold toward the back of the hotel that is rather... More

Stayed there for a night. The hotel is very big and is divided into 4 sector, wind flower snow moon. Food in the resturant is so so only. Not much things to shop or see around the hotel. Room wise is ok and there is free wifi in the room.

Check it on a cold evening on 16 October 2014. Room very spacious equipped with all necessary items. A huge glass wall bathroom with necessary toiletries. A little problem Locating our room cos of the signage. A very wide spread of breakfast menu. Love the hot milk with coffee. The hot milk tastes special. Probably from the yak. Hotel surrounding...

We were very disappointed in The Regent hotel. The lobby was large and grand with elaborate sculptures and furniture and staff sweeping the floors to keep them clean. However, the corridors and guest rooms were dark and dingy and seemed dirty though the hotel is relatively new. We slept poorly because my wife's eyes kept itching from the room. The... More

Again, another self-claimed 5-star hotel. Stayed 1-night, part of a tour group. A generous 3-stars at most. The positives: It had a very grand and spacious lobby with a nice seating area. Walking distance to old city was very convenient. Literally right around the corner to shops and restaurants. If you don't want to walk you can pay a small... More

This hotel is right next to the old city, which is a wonderful, vibrant place to visit. The hotel seems like it could be from the turn of the century, but it is just a few years old and quite...interesting. The rooms were fine, perhaps looking and feeling a little old and worn for their age, but my sense is... More

We have just recently traveled to Yunnan Province in China and had a lovely time in several great hotels. We stayed at a real 5 start hotel in Lijiang and a beautiful boutique hotel in Shangrilah. We ended our trip in Dali and had the terribly bad luck of staying at this horrible hotel which ruined the end of our... More

The only good thing about this hotel are the rooms. It's got everything you need in a 5 star hotel, but wait, half the gym is broken, the spa is too expensive and try to stay away from the beautiful ladies there. The bathrooms have NO soap to was your hands with and the floor is pretty dirty. There is... More

The hotel has the good location near the city wall so you can walk around to the walking street easily. It look like it will be a great hotel looking from the outside. The hotel itself is very big and wide spread. So you need a long walk from the lobby to your room (with steps and slope). The cleanliness... More

This is the worst hotel that we had stayed in our recent trip to China (we stayed at 16 different hotels). Room was small & crowded. Carpet was dirty & filthy. Broken furniture (armrest). Toilet overflowed & water running continuously. Ceiling exhaust grill was not installed properly - hanging from ceiling. Black / brown mold in shower stall. Bug (cockroach??)... More
