The high light of my holiday, If you're looking for a place with something more than the ordinary hotels and pensions, the temps perdu is definitely the best in Dali! I stayed 4 days there,the owners were extremely friendly, always ready to help, and very welcoming (every evening they prepared delicious diner, I won't forget). The hotel itself is in the most charming street, perfect location, , a home away from home,and i cant wait to go back next year.

Mr Ma's Hotel Perdu was a wonderful find thnks to following a previous blog on this site. I can't recommend it enough; my 11 yr old daughter did not want to leave. A 10 minute walk from downtown Dali was perfect for us. This is a beautiful, traditional style guesthouse, with immaculately clean rooms, beautiful, peaceful environment and Mr Ma and his staff are so helpful and kind; anything you ask for is attended to immmediately; the times spent in the lovely courtyard were always plenished with delicious green tea brought to you as a matter of course. Mr Ma was very helpful with any advice and help you needed; this place can't be beat to give you that nice balance for your experience in Dali.

Just returned home from our holidays and wanted to share with all our wonderful stay in Dali @ Yunnan, China.

The best place to stay while vacationing in Dali, no doubt, is to be close to the Ancient City or Old Town, which dates back to 1382 during the Ming Dynasty and was once the gateway to the SilkRoad in SW China. Although there are a lot of budget rooms (be careful of touts), we decided on "Hotel du temps Perdu" 风情大理客栈 after we did some due diligence on the internet and walked in to the hostel to have a peek at the place before we made up our mind to stay.

Although we were looking at budget accomodations, we didn't want the challenge of staying in a locally managed hostel and certainly not in a shared room dorminatory. "Hotel du temps Perdu" 风情大理客栈 offers a good compromise at a great price and close proximity ~5 minutes walking distance to the South Gate of the Old Town. The hostel is clean & homely, with an intimate open roof courtyard in the center of the modern decorated traditional house. We stayed on the 2nd floor, and find the room to be spacious and quite comfortable (see picture) with the usual amendities we have come to expect from an international hotel like TV, bathroom & WiFi not to mention the outdoor sitting area overseeing the naturally-lit beautiful courtyard.

We find the stay to be memorable as our hosts are hospitable and eager to please , offering great advices (from where to go for great food & pastries to where to gym close-by) and for getting the eggs right (sunny-side up with a little runny) and we must add - the really delicious coffee (with creamy milky-white foam) for breakfast, served whenever you like when we are awake.

They also helped with our bus tickets and transport for our onward journey to Lijiang. Overall, our 2 day stay at "Hotel du temps Perdu" 风情大理客栈 has exceeded our expectations and we certainly look forward to coming back to stay with them again and would recommend this home-away-from-home to all those visiting Dali !!
