“A lovely little hotel right outside the old city of Dali”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

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 :)

Room Tip: consider a room overlooking the courtyard if possible.

Love this place. We received better service at the small idyllic virtually brand need Chinese courtyard hotel than any 5 star hotel i visited in recent memory. I was surprised that my inexpensive room included a gratuitous ride from the bus station. Secondly we were warmly greeted by the wonderful hotel staff. Well so they weren't dressed in pseudo military garb and white gloves. Instead thete's was a smiley brit in a t-shirt and his lovely Chinese born wife. Lastly this place is sparkling clean and conviently located near the western entrance to the beautiful city of Dali. Ok, so the hotel doesn't have the amenities of a major hotel but, did i mention that this place was an incredible value. This is just a perfect place to stay while making a short sightseeing trip to wondrous Dali, China!
