Brain and Jeannie Linden have created a unique and charming hotel in Xizhou village, both close to and far away enough from the hell that is Dali town itself. Renovated from a traditional old house, with three courtyards and decorated with the Linden's antiques, the...More

Greasy food and MSG...... we are so glad that you mentioned our food. To some visitors, especially Chinese, our food is a Westernized-version of their cuisine. This frustrates all of us. We are trying to present Chinese food in a much less adulterated state- no...More

Linden Centre is a historic hotel surrounded by rice paddies in a small village about 20 minutes outside of Dali. If you are looking for posh accommodations, this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a genuine cultural experience in rural...More

Everyone in the hotel is very helpful, they are all very nice too. The centre is not far from anything. The hotel is surrounded my farms, and the view at the terrace is spectacular. I strongly suggest that people should visit this amazing place.More

How do we find equally hospitable and culturally important villages?! The weeks you spent with...More

Wow.... your review coincided with the printing of four others from your group. We are so happy that your whole team enjoyed spending the extended time at the Centre. The villagers and our staff already miss you all! Thank you.

Reviewed 13 May 2015

The Linden Center is by far the best hotel I have visited. It does not have the superficial glamour of the Shangri-La or the Hilton. It is more rustic, but the accommodations and food are just as nice, if not better. It is a beautiful...More
