Good Points: The hotel is well located - very near to the Old Town. Hotel buildings are of traditional local design - white walls with classic Chinese wall murials, 2 to 3 storey high, look good. The outdoor/garden areas are also quite appealing. Bad Points: Our standard king-bed room looked ok except for the terribly stained room carpets (see photos)...

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Gurong Hotel while visiting Dali, based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We agree that this is an ideal location near the old town, and the grounds are nicely landscaped and quiet. However, we found other things to dislike, and would say this is only an adequate place to stay for a Westen tourist....

Stayed here for one night on June 14, 2012, during a six day excursion to Yunnan Province for vacation, including Kunming, Dali, and Lijiang. The grounds of the hotel were magnificent. Had a suite of very large size with a spacious sitting area and a separate bedroom area with two very comfortable beds. The bathroom was very spacious. The beds...

We stayed here for 2 days in April for a family vacation (10 ppl). My first choice was Linden Centre, but that was full. I was a bit aprehensive about this choice at first, but was pleasantly surprised with what we got. 1) Location is great. Pop out for a foot massage or a drink to the old town if...

After a two hour scenic train ride into Dali, we were faced with taxi touts, mostly young women with fake driving licences. They had offered rides into Dali Old Town for merely RMB$15-20 when the norm was $40. We did not take the bite and chose a licensed taxi instead, offering the driver RMB$40. Since our driver did not know...

The Gurong Hotel is an elegant property with large rooms and many convneniences. A buffet breakfast is complimentary with the rooms. However, the staff has almost no English at all, and so it is impossible to garner much help in travel plans.

My husband and I stayed at the Gurong (Old Banyan) Hotel for one night in early September. On the whole, it was a very pleasant place with a nice room, beautiful gardens, proximity to the ancient city and solicitous service. We would recommend it.
