Located a fair bit away from Dali (which is no bad thing!) in a small village undergoing rapid "touristification" but keeping its traditional flavour and of course, architecture. The "centre" (yes: "centre" in English!!!) has history, style and all the necessary amenities. We found it...More

Thank Kubilaikhan
Response from Brian l, Owner at The Linden CentreResponded 2 days ago

I fully agree: the Centre is very unusual. We have a hard time articulating what we should call ourselves. The inspiration for our sites has always been community interaction and preservation. We believe that China's traditional culture, its soul, is seldom revealed in the current...More

I feel as though review I can write would even remotely do justice to the Linden Centre. But alas, I will try to highlight some of it's many delights for you intrepid explorers. My mum & I stayed here a little over 3 weeks ago,...More

Sometimes I cannot say anything but 'thank you'. Your comments inspire Jeanee and me to continue to promote our model of inclusion and preservation. We just returned from a potential national park project in southern Sichuan. As with all our future projects, the government has...More

In order to tell folks what a very special place the Linden Centre is and how much my wife and I enjoyed our recent three day stay there. The setting of the hotel (on the edge of a smaller Yunnanese village), its architecture (a large...More

I hate flying (so much so that I have spent over 200 nights on trains in China!). I am so proud to have visitors travel from all over the world to spend extended time with us. I daily remind my team that everyone who is...More

Stay here for several times and always find something new. If you are looking for a modern 5-star hotel, ignore the property. But if you are looking for a place to start some exploration, Linden Center is the best in Dali. The story of Linden...More

Response from Brian l, Owner at The Linden CentreResponded 4 weeks ago

Thank you for being a repeat visitor to Xizhou! We agree with your evaluation of the Centre: it is a travel destination- an elegant and comfortable taste of yesteryear filled with passionate scholars, professionals, and artists. We just sent off our most recent artist-in-residence, a...More

Reviewed 4 November 2017

I looked forward to stay here having read positive evaluations. However, I almost regretted from the first night. It is a nice restored complex, yes, but that doesn't make it a good hotel. Breakfast was lousy, diner too - their famous chocolate cake - the...More

Response from Brian l, Owner at The Linden CentreResponded 6 November 2017

What can we say when guests come so unprepared for their experience. One person's boring village is another traveler's paradise. Nothing to see- what about the 110 heritage buildings, the 15 temples, the mountains and rice fields. Yes, there are no McDonalds and little kids...More
