    Look no further !

    We had a wonderful time at Dali. Our stay at Dali YanYuan Mountain Retreat was fabulous from the minute we stepped into that classic wooden door. Warmest and friendliest greeting from the host Charlie and his staffs. Charlie recommended for us to rent a car for our one day trip. Mr Dung, our driver also our tour guide was fantastic, he was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, a trip to be remembered.

    Excellent service! We were delighted to find that one of the receptionists, Catherine, spoke fluent English and we enjoyed talking to her. Both receptionists, 小常哥 and Catherine, were very hospitable and friendly. The room was clean and beautiful with many amenities. The hotel also offered a variety of delicious breakfast foods, snacks, and drinks.

    A slice of heaven in Dali

    After almost two weeks of traveling through Hong Kong, Chengdu and Kunming... I needed a break from cityscape and hordes of people. So we did a quick breather trip to Dali. From the moment we pulled up to Ancient City, Dali... I started breathing more easily (ironically enough, given the 6400’ altitude). And then we pulled into YanYuan Mountain retreat and all was right with the world. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. It’s a three story old-style architecture building with a wonderful courtyard in the center. There is a tea house theme. There are nooks everywhere and the place is covered with plants and trees. The courtyard is covered with a glass roof so you can take in the beautiful clouds and even Cang Mountain. But the beauty is truly in the details and the service. They have a couple electric bikes to loan. When we came back at the end of the day, they had sweet soup ready for us. They offer a tea service anytime you wish. The stay included breakfast and it was a delightful assortment of noodles or rice porridge accompanied with fruit, eggs, corn, pickled wood ear and steamed bun. Their bed was comfy with some great sheets. The best sleep I had during my two weeks. Even their slippers were better than the average hotel slippers. Even their bottled water. And the service!! Catherine took such incredible care of us. Also a young fellow who spoke my dialect. They took such great care of our family - 10 people old and young. I will definitely be back!!!

    숙소 스태프들은 모두 친절하였습니다. 특히 Micheal, Ming 두 스탭은 따리에서 머무는 시간을 특별하게 만들어주었습니다. 호텔에서는 전기자전거를 무료로 빌릴 수 있으며 얼하이호를 다녀오기 편리합니다. 숙소 위치는 따리고성과 삼탑의 중간에 위치하고 있어 도보로 다녀오기 수월합니다. 이 숙소에 대해 강력 추천드립니다.

    像家的感觉 满分体验

    在网上搜了好久,看到了这家住客一致满分的客栈——果然是靠实打实的服务赢得了用户的心。客栈就在大理古城对面,走5分钟就能从苍山门进古城,走1.2公里就能到崇圣寺三塔景区,背靠苍山景区,出门就能回望苍山云海。客栈风格可谓独树一帜,看得出主人是精心设计过的,透着浓浓的生活情趣和宁静的禅意。客栈是一座三层小院,加盖了透明的房顶,因此整体感觉并不与外界隔绝,却又宁静怡人。绿植随处可见,还有小鸟为伴,小桥流水,茶室、阅览室一应俱全。服务人员更是值得大赞:每天回到酒店就端上热乎乎的新鲜饮料,绿豆沙、银耳羹,而且不重样。同样,早点也是每日现做,虽然不像大酒店那么多,但是精心调配,每日换样。每天在我们出行前给出许多有益的建议。最后一天,我们正担心拖着大行李从三楼不好下去,店员听到声音已经三两步蹿上来提了下去。酒店还有一个特别周到可靠的司机董师傅,建议大家到当地跟随他包车旅游。这是店里的金牌司机,驾龄几十年,而且人特别值得信赖,作为当地土生土长的白族人,董师傅给我们推荐的景点和游玩方式都让旅游体验加分不少,发现了不少自己去找不到的惊喜。而且,董师傅把我们送到景区后从来不给限制游玩时间。我们从石宝山回来已经是最后一批出来,停车场都没人了,董师傅一点都不介意——这点真是太难得了! 真的是在国内旅游非常满意的一次住宿体验,强烈推荐各位朋友到此休假。

    Hyggeligt hotel

    Hyggeligt hotel med gårdhave i midten i gammel traditionel stil, men stadig med ok moderne værelser. Parkering er inkluderet, men kræver man kan kinesisk for at finde ud af hvor (faktisk er det blot på sidevejen foran indgangen, hvor bilen vil blokere vejen). Kort gåafstand til den gamle bydel med restauranter, barer og små turist butikker.
