Still the most popular guesthouse in town, and rightly so. The foreign-owned Jade Emu is popular with both foreign and Chinese visitors, with friendly staff, and welcoming owners. This is the perfect place to pick up advice from the many expats who hang out here, on travelling through Yunnan, China, and beyond.
This multi-award winning guesthouses has now added a boutique hotel to its range of accommodation options.
This guesthouse offers a relaxed family-feel, specializing in organic food, with a pleasant courtyard to relax, unwind, and take away the stresses of life. Only a minute’s walk from the wonderful La Dolce Vita restaurant and the peaceful tranquility of The Song Sisters bookshop.
In a quiet location, tucked away down a little street just 5 minutes walk to the Old town, and close to the guesthouse hub that includes the Jade Emu and 5 elements. This welcoming place is just a stone’s throw away from La Dolce Vita restaurant and The Song Sisters bookshop.
Occupying an outstanding location on Renmin Lu close to many restaurants and Dali’s best nightlife, the 4 Seasons is a decent budget option for those who want to be close to the action.
Friendly staff, and a relaxed roof-top terrace with comfy hammocks and delightful views of the old town and CangShan mountain. Tucked away down a little alley, so can be a little hard to find after one too many beers!
Nice, comfortable atmosphere, with friendly owners and two lovely dogs to welcome you when you step in through the gate. Situated just outside the old town, but close to the highway for easy access to buses to Xiaguan and to Lijiang.
