In a nice neighborhood just walking distance to the Green Lake, the Bird and Flower Market and many restaurants is Lost Garden, a charming guesthouse with friendly and helpful English speaking staff. Our train to Dali was not leaving until 10 in the evening and we needed a room to freshen up before the trip. We were offered the 6-bed dorm (the only room available) for half the price if we check out at 6pm.
Although the entire place is quite compact, it was filled with plants and flowers, had big windows and the skylight contributed to the bright and cozy atmosphere of the reception/bar. In another room is a small restaurant popular for their pizza (I gathered from some of the reviews I’ve read), I say they were nothing to rave about but it was not bad. Breakfast was a much better fare with a lot on the menu to choose from. Order their toast, it was the best we had in Yunnan.
Our room was also on the small side but likewise cozy and nicely decorated with a window looking out the courtyard. The bathroom (of Rm. 201) does have a damp odor (as many reviewers advised) but if you put down the cover of the WC, you’ll be fine. No AC but a fan was provided. The King size bed was nice and firm.
