"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"

"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."

"In the beginning I planned to stay only 2 nights but due to the good service and friendly atmosphere at the Lily Pad Inn and also of course the charming Old town of Dali I prolonged my stay with 2 more nights.I recommend warmly the lily Pad Inn for its location, its good service, its friendly and helpful staff who try all the time to make you pleased to be their guest through for exempel commun dinner with other guests for symbolic expenses.The excellent english of the staff which is not usual in China make it easy to get information on different activities and programmes, The Lily Pad Inn gaved me really much value for the modest money I paid.

"This boutique hotel is absolutely fabulous! Although it was a bit hard to drag our bags there as the road is under heavy construction (pack light and perhaps use big backpack instead of rolly suitcase) after arriving everything went fantastic. It’s a super adorable hotel with really cool decor and the room looks just like the pics from agoda (awesome shower and comfy bed by western standards). The staff was also amazing, super friendly and made us feel like we lived there with them. This hotel was a big part of the reason Dali was our favorite city in Yunnan. I would definitely stay here again and was sad to leave."

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.
