The Laughing Lotus Inn Dali Reviews
Wooden rooms that compliment the spirit of the hill-tribe people Mar 20, 2010
The Laughing Lotus Inn is one of the best inns I've stayed in. This inn beats the modern designer boutique hotels and the luxury hotel chains hands down. The inn retained the essence of the mansion it was converted from - giving off a distinct ancient Chinese sense of nostalgia.
The Laughing Lotus Inn is a modest establishment with 5 guest rooms - 3 on the first level and 2 on the second level.
I stayed in one of the rooms on the second floor. The room was big enough to fit luggage for 2 comfortably and has a very spacious Western style bathroom complete with a tub and even a bench. Mostly made up of dark wood furniture (which I found out are really hundred year old antiques!) and decorated with b/w photos, I not only took to the inn but also the 2 owners of this place. They were extremely friendly and helpful - they brought me out to local bars and coordinated my air ticket and car ride to the airport.
I'll definitely stay at The Laughing Lotus Inn again, if I ever revisit Dali.
