The very nice couple who owns the hotel do their utmost to make you comfortable. They maintain their lovely house in Bai style just outside the gates of old Dali impeccably. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I was worried that the neighborhood would be noisy as there seemed to be carousing in the house across the street...this is a residential neighborhood after all...but everyone was quiet at about 10:30 pm and we had a good sleep until around 7 a.m. when the rooster crows and the neighborhood wakes up. The Chinese countryside tends to have a lot of noise, dust, and funny smells as I believe people incinerate their garbage (including the plastic) but if you close the windows in your hotel you are shielded from all that. The location of the hotel is outside the city gates, but very walkable. We had a nice time visiting the pagodas and quickly going through the old town before regretfully having to leave to our next location. Very nice breakfast (either western or english) and again, very friendly proprietors. Cute puppy dog named "Dolly" to top it all :)
