This hotel is only 3 storeys. The reception hall looks grand. The restaurant is on 3rd floor and the food is good. The room is nice and cosy. The hotel is very oriental in design. Service is good and staff is friendly.
Very very good rooms, good atmosphere, excellent dining room with ambient atmosphere with excellent scenery of the old town of dali. Rooms are also well designed and room service is excellent, excellent room service! Room lighting is a little on the dim side.
This small hotel is decorated beautifully in traditional Chinese style. We were upgraded and the rooms were huge, very comfortable and with the right amenities.
It was late November and the hotel was somewhat cold, but bearable.
The breakfast is Chinese style mainly, but acceptable. The terrace next to the dining room has an amazing view.
It is located walking distance from the old town and 2 km from the 3 towers.
Staff is friendly. Overall I would recommend this hotel.
The Dali Royal Hotel boasts of a great view of the Erhai Lake and mountains. The room was spacious and comfortable. We stayed one night and slept well. It was a 15 minutes walk to the old town of Dali and great for a walk after dinner. Loved the location. Heard that it is a popular hotel and not easy to get a room. Breakfast and dinner at the 3rd floor restaurant was ok, nothing special. Overall, it's a pleasant stay.
This was one of the better hotels we stayed during our Yunnan Holiday tour. We fell in love at first sight fascinated by the red tall Chinese structure that covered the pathway to the hotel entrance. The lobby was Chinese inspired designed.
Hotel is close to the Ancient City but we did not have the time to walk over. Room is comfortable and reasonably spacious with the windows opening out to the courtyard. The best part is the dining area on the 3rd floor not because of the food but the view. The view for the dining verandah was absolutely stunning. We celebrated our mid-autumn festival at the verandah watching the night fireworks while having beers and moon cakes. You can also catch the sun set from this spot too.
Overall, we enjoyed our short one night stay and would love to come back again.
