The Dali Royal Hotel boasts of a great view of the Erhai Lake and mountains. The room was spacious and comfortable. We stayed one night and slept well. It was a 15 minutes walk to the old town of Dali and great for a walk after dinner. Loved the location. Heard that it is a popular hotel and not easy...

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel and its great location - the rooms were clean, service was mostly polite and the hotel is very close to parts of Dali that would interest tourists, being situated right on top of the nightlife street and very close to the Ancient Town. Had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant on...

Very nice hotel, located near an ancient town (about 20 min walk). The room was big and clean. The mattress was a little bit hard but we still had a pleasant sleep. The breakfast was good and served in the restaurant from where you can have a great view of the Erhai Lake.

Room is clean and comfortable. Could sleep quite well. Breakfast spread is sumptuous almost equivalent to a lunch buffet. To walk from hotel to Dali Ancient city takes about 20 minutes. Rooms with windows facing inner courtyard are quiet.
