We only stayed one night, so not that much to say, but it was a very comfortable luxurious modern hotel with all the amenities -- spread out over various buildings, so not a classic traditional hotel feeling to is. The breakfast was unusually good. As with other hotels in central/west China, we were surprised by how few Westerners were here...

Stayed here for 1 night for the business trip. Hotel room is standard deco but comfortable and clean. Hotel garden is really nice. Breakfast is goos too. It is located in the quiet part of the old town so you can have good night sleeo while within walking distance to the bar and old town market area.

We stayed just one night in Gurong while on our way to Kunming. This is a very nice hotel, my personal experience with each and every staff is very pleasant. They are helpful, friendly and genuine . They greet you, volunteer to carry your bags and answer questions with their best knowledge regarding directions, restaurants and local specialties . It...

A nice hotel. The rooms were very spacious. Bathroom needed an update, but was okay. The room did smell of stale smoke (it was a smoking room). I was on the ground floor and as I was travelling by myself I would have preferred to be on another floor. There were a few insects which had crawled in too. The...

My son and I were here in April for two nights. It was a pleasure exploring the neatly kept hotel grounds. All the trees and flowering plants looked very healthy and colorful. The peaceful, quiet surroundings attracted many small songbirds; one morning when I came to the window a small blue colored songbird was standing just right outside the window....

For an Asian traveller with reasonable command of spoken Chinese, this hotel can meet many requirements especially if you like to explore food and souvenir shopping in Dali Old town. The western style breakfast is barely okay and if this is your most important criteria, get a room without breakfast. There are local western cafes close by. The chinese breakfast...

This hotel was the best that our Group stayed in while we were in China for 2 weeks. It is located right in the middle of the old town and "Foreigner Street" and the shopping streets were only minutes away on foot. There is wifi to every room, (very unusual in China hotels) and when it didn't work the first...

A very clean and quiet hotel which is superbly located in its own grounds within the walls of the old town. Excellent rooms off open-air corridors in detached blocks, with all facilities and air conditioning that works a treat. Lighting particularly good with plenty of mood options and even a built-in nightlight (albeit all controlled from a single bedside console...

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....
