"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"

"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. "

"This place would be perfect for those who want to have a quiet getaway. It is quite close to the lake, so you can walk along the WEST lakeshore whenever you feel like it. Far enough from all the actions yet you can easily rent a scooter or tuktuk to the old town within 15 min. But if you end up living on the eastcoast, you will find it too isolated. The rooftop of the hotel is perfect for sunrise watching and moonlight bathing. The owner himself and his family are also living here. As you can image they really take good care of the place, decoration, bedding, plants and all the eco-friendly designs are all quite impressive. I will definitely come back again. "

    "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.

    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.
