    Thank you. Yeah, it does take few minutes to walk into the center of the old town. Thanks to that, we are away from the crowded. Still, thank you for your positive review. All the best.

    Reviewed 10 May 2013

    So although it is not IN the center of Dali, it is VERY accessible since Dali isn't very big. Everyone was amazing and helpful, the room was spotless, shower pressure good, bathroom huge... and the food was amazing too. A really great place to stay!
