The Jade Emu International Guesthouse
Dali City,Dali - View on map
"Take #3 bus (turn right after exit Dali train station) and stop at Gurong Hotel. Cost 3rmb only. Gurong Hotel is just next to Red Dragon Wall Gate (a big grey stone wall). Cross the highway and walk straight for about 5min until came about 77 Guesthouse. Then, turn left and walk uphill to Jade Emu Guesthouse. The guesthouse is nice. Room is spacious and they will change your towel everyday. There are no air-conditioner in the room but the room will get cold especially during night. Only few minutes walk to Dali Ancient City. Anyway, we have a nice stay here. The staff can speak/understand english and don’t forget to meet Magic (i think the owner’s dog). p/s: Take the same bus #3 from the guesthouse to Dali train station which is also the last stop"

Hilton Dali Resort and Spa
Dali City,Dali - View on map
"Great facility, our room was very spacious and staffs were all so helpful. Although there was a misunderstanding in regards the shuttle bus going back to hotel from the old town, made us waited like an hour but eventually hotel sent a separate car to get us and even offered a complimentary shuttle service to the train station on the day we left. It is a little inconvenient for the location wise but hotel has free shuttle service in the morning and afternoon to the main attraction Dali Old Town. Breakfast was super good. Will come back again in the future."

Hidden Hotel
Dali City,Dali - View on map
"I stayed in the Double Room with Balcony and it was very comfortable. Loved the little touches around the room, everything is clean and neat. Loved the little alcove sitting area (the "balcony") with its small window that opens into the winding vines growing upwards from the tree in the inner courtyard. I sat there with a book during the day, and a bottle of wine during the night. The bathroom was small but adequate with thoughtful supplies of the usual disposable amenities you might need. However, the hot water wasn't working very well and I only had lukewarm showers which during the summer days would be fine but it was during the colder autumn season. Strangely, the hot water from the hand basin was perfectly fine. I did not have a chance to dine here but whatever the lady owner was cooking certainly smelled delicious. Location was excellent, very easy to find and it was easy to navigate around the old Dali town from this base. "

More about Dali

Once one of the world’s 13 largest cities, Dali is today an excellent destination for a relaxing retreat and is popular with backpackers. Scenic areas and historical sites are abundant, and the 25 ethnic minorities that live here have created a unique cultural heritage. Dali is divided into two areas known as the Ancient City and the New District – also known as Xiaguan. The city is served by Dali Airport.

Within Dali, the scenic areas of Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake garner the most attention for their beauty and the sights that can be found here. Islands, temples, and villages surround the lake and make for excellent exploration. Cangshan Mountain is a visual marvel when snowcapped and is reputed for its snow, clouds, springs, and marble. Cultural relics of the Bai people can be explored here, and so too can the Three Pagodas and Inaction Temple. Within Dali, the Ancient City is a popular draw and dates back to the Ming Dynasty, boasting traditional architecture and small, handworked fields. The Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture Museum and Foreigner Street are but a couple more popular venues for travelers to the city of Dali.
