Jim's Tibetan Hotel is like a mix between the best guest house you remember from backpacking when you were young and a confusing hotel you need as to get older. Perfect location, large rooms, tibetan vibe, serviceable bathrooms, and good talks with the owner late at night. We 50 yr old loved it, and our grown kids also. Be nice... More

Stayed two nights at Jim's in July, 2016. The hotel has an excellent location on a quiet side street just off of the Southwest corner of Dali Old Town. Enjoyed the breakfast, especially the coffee and the apple-banana pancake. Overall, the service was friendly. The hotel provides a very reasonably-priced laundry service, as long as you don't mind a few... More

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

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

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
