9.2 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is just inside the wall around Dali Ancient Town, a short walk from the main streets. Considering that, it is remarkably quiet, and has a resort ambiance. It’s also close to a Lake Erhai ferry dock and convenient to Three Pagodas.
Cons: We were given a room with a decorative pond outside the window, which had a musty odor on arrival. The staff graciously transferred us to a room in a different building, which had an enclosed garden adjacent. The hotel doesn’t offer currency exchange, and a nearby bank put us in a long queue, which we declined.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff and good service, they provide excess mineral water in the room, as well as fruits ... evening, they send hot drinks and biscuits (daily) Breakfast is also adequate for Muslims, breads, cakes, eggs, jam, cheese, butter, fruits, coffee, tea, milk, cereal ... etc. The location is excellent, near the main attractions, Muslim restaurant and convenience store. Easy for cab or DD to drop guests to the hotel lobby. Cleaner is also superb ... often clean the room and change the towel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks to all the staffs...:)
Cons: Internet...:)

9.2 Excellent
Pros: I like the bedsheet (yunnan embroidery) and the hotel design is modern yet semi classic. Love the room design and water flow from dispenser to fill in u water bottle. The bed is ok not so hard, they provide 2 pillows so its nice. The whole room desain was semi tibetian style. the room was decorated with mural and the bathroom door is so classic. They have little radio in the room that we enjoyed listening music to. The breakfast was so so, the white noddle was recommended with peanut topping. Also fried rice with 2 different veggies, steamed sweet potatoes and chinese buns as well as congee. They give free flow soy milk. The breakfast area is nice and i enjoy quiet morning there. they also have a nice garden and gazebo and outdoor area on first floor. Room has air cond too. get a fridge magnet from receptionist as the price is one of the cheapest in town. The receptionist speaks just limited english but all very nice n helpful. its around 10 mins walk to old town but its ok. for us bringing big lugage staying here is perfect as the car can stop in front of hotel. never bring big lugage to stay in old town. if u bring big lugage pls request room on first floor but i think their double bed mostly are upstairs. no lift only stair. better communicate if u are unsure. thank u for giving us good stay and help us to change room based on our needs that day.
Cons: I dont like the bathroom. well only my room. When u went at 11 pm and there was only 1 light. please add more light in shower area as its too dark. ok this is the chinese bathroom style, no glass in between shower, closet n basin area, so when u shower the water will wet floor area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was excellent, near but not in the old town. The room decor was lovely, and the common areas kitschy but pleasant. The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and spoke good English. The breakfast was only Chinese style but there were several options.
Cons: The coffee was not good. It was difficult to shower without getting the whole bathroom wet.

7.1 Good
Pros: The person in charge is very nice but not always around. The beds are comfortable and the washing machine is much appriciated.
Cons: The comments below have absolutely nothing with reality. After searching a bit i found out they were written about a different place (maybe the same owner?) -rooms are very basic and dusty with kind of a hospital feeling. -noisy in the morning
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. Good location and quiet at night. Lots of restaurants right around the corner or easy walk to other areas.
Cons: A bit of construction was going on while I was staying there. They offered for me to stay in other building owned by same hotel but it would've cost more so I chose to stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice and quiet place, the hostel is in Chinese/modern style, the owner was very nice and ready to answer all the questions, room was very clean and bed comfortable. The area was very quiet and peaceful with other beautiful houses around,very close to the old town .would come back for sure ;)
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location in Dali old town with many restaurants and convenience stores in the immediate area. Away from the most crowded parts of the town. Staff were friendly and quite helpful in arranging further transportation.
Cons: The room I stayed in (Superior King Room) had a partial glass roof, which effectively made the room like a greenhouse on sunny days - very hot and stuffy. Also the room is listed as being soundproof. It most definitely is not. You'll hear plenty of whatever's going on outside the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Easy access to public transportation. Walking distance to all Dali old town has to offer. Staff is nice and the guest house locals are gracious as well.
Cons: The room can use a paint job. Perhaps it’s the local conditions but paint has chipped off.
4.6 Okay
Cons: The room is totally different from what showed in booking.com The staff take us to another building nearby and give another poorer room to us. The floor and beddings werent clean and the shower door made mirror! Not reccomend to anyone.
7.1 Good
Pros: Room was a good size and comfortable. Also felt secure. Location was great and easy to walk straight into the old town / three pagodas. Restaurants nearby and a bike hire shop for trips to Erhai Lake.
Cons: Staff weren't particularly forthcoming with information on what to see in Dali and how to make the most of the Moon Festival. Property claims that it accepts Mastercard and Visa but it doesn't (Union Pay or cash only), which was annoying. We stayed for 4 nights and bed sheets, towels, toilet roll or bins not replaced / emptied at all.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It's not like the other ancient towns, you could hire the taxi or electronic car to reach the hotel. The receptionist is really nice and kind. He gave us amazing recommendation to the local mushroom hotpot restaurant with 20% off. On top of that, the hotel location is super near to the excellent bar where u can grab a drink with others and really have fun.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very helpfull staff! They can help you with planning and booking local tours! (in Dali it is not so easy as you may expect). Clean rooms. Good localization (not so crowdy as main popular streets), next to many little restaurants.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very spacious, modern, bright, quiet, fully equipped
Cons: They offer several places, the villa we lived in was quite far away (several kilometers) from the ancient city, we could take a bus to get there, to get back in the evening (after 7pm or so) you need to take cab (and bargain with the driver) Lack of maintenance (e.g. some shelves in the bathrooms not fixed anymore, cabinet sliding door loose)

6.0 Good
Pros: The staff was very helpful.
Cons: The room felt cold, figuratively and literally.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Quiet, clean and good location!!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Helpful staff, great location. We suppose stay at 2nd floor, but we had large luggage, so the staff gave us the ground floor room.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, big and cozy accommodation. The terrace is beautiful, the staff very friendly. We had an enjoyable time here.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: It is very close to the tourist area but quieter and close to the bus that goes to the train station. It has a very nice garden
Cons: it's a little hard to find
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The courtyard was nice and quiet, good for reading. The room was equipped with a kettle and proper mugs, decor is really nice, comfy bed, clean bathroom and even more towels than we need. We thought check out time was 12.30 instead of 12.00 but the guy was nice to give us a few extra mins to finish packing. The entrance to Renmin rd is not far and there are a lot of fruit vendors there, and in the evening an old man selling the most delicious seitan bbq skewers in front of Qiutu Hotel - a green gem I wish I had known earlier.
Cons: I think it was a little pricey for being outside the old town, and I wish they were a little more proactive on arrival telling us about the surroundings and so on. A water dispenser on each floor would be nice, I was glad they were not giving free plastic bottles, but there are free disposable toothbrushes in the bathroom, which encourages other people to use disposables even when they don't need them, I suggest giving them only when requested.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: It's not the same hostel that was even 2 years ago. Foreign management has been changed to Chinese. There is no-one on reception, no-one speaks English, dirty and ugly rooms. Doesn't worth its money. There are several hostels around way better and cheaper
