We've found a great new place to stay in Dali old town (Yunnan) called 'Jim's Tibetan Hotel'. The hotel is a beautiful place and built in colourful Tibetan/ Bai style. As we have heard that many guesthouses/ hotels in Dali are very noisy we found Jim's Tibetan Hotel at a very nice spot: it's in a quiet street but close to the old town of Dali. It's about a 5 minute walk to the south gate of Dali and then you are in the centre.
About the rooms: they have very comfortable beds which is a big plus as most of the beds in China are quite hard and uncomfortable. You can tell that the owners paid a great deal of attention to the inside decoration of the whole place which is very original and colourful. The rooms have wooden handmade Chinese furniture. The bathroom is good with shower or bath and heating lamps (must be very nice in wintertime)! Outside the rooms is a wide balcony where you can relax sitting outside. But they also have a garden and rooftop terrace with a magnificent view over the Erhai lake and the mountains. The hotel's atmosphere is warm and inviting and the workers are friendly which is a good feeling if you have been travelling for a while. We would surely recommend this hotel to anybody who is looking for a peaceful place to stay with beautiful decorations. Last but not least we want to recommend the restaurant which serves very tasty food for breakfast (homebaked bread!) and for lunch and dinner they have a choice of Tibetan, Chinese and western food. In the end we stayed a bit longer than planned just because we liked the place so much!! The rooms are good value for money and start from 200 yuan. They have singles/ doubles/ triples and 4 bedrooms (this is good for families).
