I like to tell people about good places. This place is better than just good. Friendly helpful staff, good sized rooms who can provide good travel advice. It is located a short walk from the three pagodas and just outside the old city. There are western breakfasts available at extra cost if you want them which are OK and won't... More

This hotel is within walking distance of the old town of Dali and also the 3 Pagodas. The staff are very friendly and Daisy speaks very good English.

Friendly service and the view from the roof top is really beautiful. You can see green mountains at the back and blue lake at the front. However, the hotel is a bit far from Dali Old Town (yet still within walking distance) and the water pressure of the shower is not strong enough for me.

This small hotel has all we need for the 1 week staying in Dali. Good location - not really in the old town of Dali which means much peaceful and quite but only 10 minutes walking you are already in the center of the old town. Nice staff - owner is a nice gentleman who could help on everything. He... More

It's a three story building with a small restaurant and bar at street level. Guest rooms are on the higher levels and are clean but a bit sparse. Probably 15-20 rooms in total? Access to town is simply walking down the lane for 2 minutes and crossing the main highway and through the West gate. There are small convenience stores... More

Dali is an amazing place to spend a few days. We showed up at Mountain Delights and ended up staying for six nights, partly because I was a bit under the weather but largely because Lin and Daisy (and Dali the retriever) made us feel at home and took great care of us. Lin is the perfect hostess...always available, attentive... More
