      Good stay for a few days”
      Jim's hotel is located just outside the south walls of the old city. Convenient to all the sites you would want to see in Dali. Breakfast is very good, though a bit overpriced at 40 yuan each. Jim speaks English fluently, and is very knowledgeable about the area. He only seems to be around in the evenings and it is hard to spend too much time around him due to his constant smoking. Nice guy, though, and nice place in Dali. If I were to visit again, I would look for someplace in the old city walls.

      Superb/excellent”
      You really feel home at Jim's Tibettan hotel, the rooms and service of the staff are really good. Jim speaks fluently English and can give you the right information you need to enjoy your stay at Dali. He knows by his background exactly what a "foreigner" wants and is looking for. Our stay here was the best we had at China and ...........don't forget to taste the delightful breafast; fresh pears with yogurt and muesli and pancake!!!

      Nice hotel, a bit alternative way but good.”
      Hotelowner Jim, great guy maybe should be bit more availabe, there he is the only one speak english. The hotelrooms are clean, great job by the friendly girl who works there. Only thing is the bicycles that can be rent at hotel need cleaning and maintenance. The gear in the back wheel didn't work and the chain and chainwheels need to be replaced and chain oil. This hotel has much possibilities to be perfect for travellers who like the hotels that combines character, theme, comfort, and friendly staff. I will go back here.

      Beautiful old building just outside city walls”
      Jim's Tibetan Hotel is traditional Chinese building with rooms overlooking an outdoor courtyard. It is lovingly maintained by Jim and and has all the modern conveniences you need. It is also very quiet, although that may be because we were the only people staying at the time! Jim does a breakfast of pancakes, yoghurt and muesli but the hotel is so close to town I would suggest skipping this and eating at one of the many places inside the city walls. I would highly recommend going to Jim's favourite Chinese place for dinner, just down the hill from the hotel. Just point to the raw ingredients and leave it up to the chef how to cook them. We chose beef, eggplant and beans and the dishes were all amazing.

      Myself and 4 children (11-23) stayed 3 days, enjoyed Jim's tour and walk, rice whisky and chats about Vietnam and Tibet. He is the most I tersting character I met on our brief 2 weeks in china.

      Quiet family hotel run by Jim ”
      The photos you see are accurate. It is attractively decorated with a beautiful garden courtyard. The bed is comfortable, bathroom works well but if pristine crevices will worry you bring cleaning materials and book to stay. It is close to the Old Town, with car access to the door which is not always available. His cook presents an excellent breakfast and he has great coffee. He cooks great hot pot and more. And then he is an oasis of English conversation with a local. He is a fluent and intelligent conversationalist likely to ask you to share a nip of his Tibetan whisky.

      Atmospheric hotel with great service”
      Beautifully decorated rooms; very good and reliable service; great homecooked food.
      We had a very pleasant stay in Jim's Tibetan Hotel in Dali. Certainly Jim/the hotel offered by far the best and most reliable service during our whole holidays: we booked a nice tour that rescued the only really rainy day of our whole stay and onward transportation was organized uncomplicated and reliably. By the way, the food (comprehensive menue) was cooked very well (Jim is a great chef).

      I really liked meeting jim. He is a memorable character and he couldn't be more accommodating. Jim arranged rides for us to Lijiang and to the airport and, Jim moved us to a more convenient room.
      I'd go back and I would recommend it to others for location, value and Jim.
