For an Asian traveller with reasonable command of spoken Chinese, this hotel can meet many requirements especially if you like to explore food and souvenir shopping in Dali Old town. The western style breakfast is barely okay and if this is your most important criteria, get a room without breakfast. There are local western cafes close by. The chinese breakfast...

This hotel was the best that our Group stayed in while we were in China for 2 weeks. It is located right in the middle of the old town and "Foreigner Street" and the shopping streets were only minutes away on foot. There is wifi to every room, (very unusual in China hotels) and when it didn't work the first...

A very clean and quiet hotel which is superbly located in its own grounds within the walls of the old town. Excellent rooms off open-air corridors in detached blocks, with all facilities and air conditioning that works a treat. Lighting particularly good with plenty of mood options and even a built-in nightlight (albeit all controlled from a single bedside console...

Good Points: The hotel is well located - very near to the Old Town. Hotel buildings are of traditional local design - white walls with classic Chinese wall murials, 2 to 3 storey high, look good. The outdoor/garden areas are also quite appealing. Bad Points: Our standard king-bed room looked ok except for the terribly stained room carpets (see photos)...

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Gurong Hotel while visiting Dali, based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We agree that this is an ideal location near the old town, and the grounds are nicely landscaped and quiet. However, we found other things to dislike, and would say this is only an adequate place to stay for a Westen tourist....

Stayed here for one night on June 14, 2012, during a six day excursion to Yunnan Province for vacation, including Kunming, Dali, and Lijiang. The grounds of the hotel were magnificent. Had a suite of very large size with a spacious sitting area and a separate bedroom area with two very comfortable beds. The bathroom was very spacious. The beds...

What a beautiful location and layout and we were there only one night. Right in the center of Dali Room was excellent - good bed, good bathroom, all the amenities. Cool night so no need for A/C and windows had screens! Internet worked well (for China) and then went off just after we posted. I called and they could not...

We stayed here for 2 days in April for a family vacation (10 ppl). My first choice was Linden Centre, but that was full. I was a bit aprehensive about this choice at first, but was pleasantly surprised with what we got. 1) Location is great. Pop out for a foot massage or a drink to the old town if...

After a two hour scenic train ride into Dali, we were faced with taxi touts, mostly young women with fake driving licences. They had offered rides into Dali Old Town for merely RMB$15-20 when the norm was $40. We did not take the bite and chose a licensed taxi instead, offering the driver RMB$40. Since our driver did not know...
