Nice Hotel”
The hotel is very nice and clean. The hotel's breakfast is simple but tasty food provided. It is walking distance to Ancient Town. Too short of time with 2 days 1 night in Dali. Otherwise, we can explore more in the area around the hotel. Thanks

Room is good, food is delicious, it's quite comfort. BUT, internet is bad. Possibly we are staying at the Block B,it's a bit far away from the mainhall? We did complain,but no improvement. They only stated their internet has no problem before. Secondly,the kicthen lady is very strange and disgusting.She scolded us for unknown reason on different day. We paying though..😰

Perfect in every way”
I have lived and travelled in China for the past 4 years (normally with young family) This was by far the best overall experience I have had in China. The hosts (Jesse) is incredible. The rooms spotless and so comfortable. The location could not be any better. Can't say enough about the hosts and the hotel itself.

Great Place for the Money”
I am a frequent traveller in Yunnan Province as I live in Lijian six months of the year. I have stayed in many place in Dali, mostly 5 Star and fairly expensive. The China Old Story Inn will be my new home when in Dali. Caution: It was difficullt for me to find as the large sign at the street entrance was hidden behing a truc the first time I walked by. Very clear, very nicely and colorfuylly decorated and I particularly like the very soft and relaxing music that is available 24/7 from a little bedside thingy. I did not eat there but lots of small restaurants in the area. Staff was very friendly and the young woman at the desk spoke very good english and that is the great excepton in this area.

A building with character”
It’s a nicely furbished hotel. Staff can meet you at SouthGate entrance to help you with the luggage. Tgey have English speaking staff. They also have a team of drivers and private cars and the rate is very reasonable. We were put up in a room on the ground floor facing the reception so “human traffic” tends to be heavy. Being sensitive to noise, I was woken up by the loud conversations of Chinese guests. Avoid ground floor units if possible.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and nice. It's not easy to find the hotel, but can't blame to the taxi driver cause there are bunch of similar hotel in the city. This is one of the best of the similar rate hotel in Dali. Call them to arrange transport (reasonable charges) for pick up a day before check in.

Be mindful that the hotel is within a small lane but but to worry as it can be easily spotted. Staff extended great service level and making you comfortable. Could not asked for more at such a location- with plentiful of food at easy reach. Also near to bus station and also tourist center where you can seek assistance and get organised day trip at affordable price. Overall, Dali is a well organised place. The hotel itself is near to the south gate of the ancient city and you can simply walk there. Good location!

A good choice!!”
Nice & willing to help staffs, good location & easy to find
I got to talk to Matty, a staff from head quarter weeks before my trip, he was more than nice and was very helpful to my whole trip. When we arrive to the hotel, staffs were willing to help but their English was very limited so, we used an app to translate & communicate instead. The location is good, just 5 min walk to the old town and all the shops & restaurants were at. Room was beautiful, clean, cozy & quiet at night. I'd definitely stay at this hotel again if i have a chance to visit Dali next time. It is worth the money you paid for, a good feeling & welcoming staffs.. that is what you can not buy from everywhere. It is specific!

Decent for the price”
Pros: Located right in the old town with plenty of eateries around, price is decent, design of the inn has an ancient aura. Cons: Could be hard to find, staff are unfriendly and often showed attitude. Breakfast is the same everyday I.e. fried rice, porridge, noodles. Variety can be improved. Room interior looks old and mattress and carpet looks dirty, not sure if the owner cleans it after each stay.

Disappointing”
Stayed for 1 night in this hotel, and I am glad I did not extend my stay there. Faulty aircon - it will shut off by itself after an 1 hr . It leaves the room cold in the middle of the night, and will have to wake up to switch the aircon back again. Hot water - there is no hot water at all in the bathroom. After leaving the water running for 10 mins, what I get is just lukewarm water, which is terrible during my stay in cold autumn temperature. Inform the staff about it but they are unable to do much as it seems that it is a water heater problem. Hygiene - wall have stains, and the bedroom slippers were kept in a bag while it was wet, thereby there is an unpleasant odour on it. Breakfast - avoid, as the porridge was cold and the buffet items are limited. One positive note about this hotel is that the front desk female staffs were very hospitable and helpful. Can't say the same for the male manager/supervisor who likes to smoke in the lobby.

Overrated hotel, staff unfriendly and misleading location ”
It took us nearly more than an hour to find the place. Taxi won't take you to the hotel, just drop off at south gate. We have to ask, search the place as no one seems to know. We call from airport to hotel, no answer, that was 6pm. Arrived at hotel, dragging our luggages for almost 2 km when the distance from south gate states 300m!!!!! Nothing great or fancy about the hotel, in the morning at breakfast, the woman cook was smoking inside the open kitchen, cigarette in her mouth and cooking noodles. Like you see in cowboy movie. She even go outside where the food display cigarette on one hand and took the fruits from the counter. What a scene!!!! Poor wifi, breakfast, no free drinking bottled water, have to pay for it. Not recommend

Great place to rest and relax in historic Dali”
Location, Value for Money, Ambience
I got 2 twin rooms for myself and my friends. We arrived at 7 AM on the overnight train from Kunming and they let us check in to both rooms so we can freshen up and have a bit of rest before a full day of sightseeing in Dali. It is located on a side street from the main street but is easy to find as there is a sign on the main street directing you into the side street. Hotel is close to the South Gate of historic Dali old town where the Tourism Office is located and there are many dining options once you get onto the main street. Hotel is clean and bed is the most comfortable of my two weeks travelling in Yunnan. The hotel has a pretty courtyard with a pavilion, and bridge and pond. Apparently some of the Experience rooms are decorated in the ancient Chinese style with wooden carved beds.
