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 hotel looks grand in traditional Chinese palace style, and the rooms are spacious but ours has an unusual/ unpleasant odor to it. Walking distance to the old town is a big plus. This hotel is cater to the tour groups so breakfast is a mad dash and very crowded if you timed it just right. And they don't replenish it quickly. The balcony lends a beautiful view of the city and Erhai Lake. Minimum service, very little English.

From the lobby, the walkway, restaurant to the rooms, you will see a very strong sense of ancient Chinese traditional decoration.

Rooms are clean and we had our dinner and breakfast at the 3rd floor. The third floor has views and you can go out to the balcony to take some photos. It was quite cold at the restaurant balcony on a late November morning after breakfast so do make sure you are adequately dressed up.

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.
