Questions & Answers

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

I will be arriving earlier/later than the stated check-in time. Can I still check in?

Usually this is not a problem; you can arrange for an after-hours check-in with most hotels. However, you should always confirm with the hotel. You can use the "Special Requests" box in the booking process to inform them of your estimated arrival time in writing. It's important to remember that the property can't always accommodate these requests. It's always best to check with the property directly and in advance to avoid confusion. You can contact the hotel directly by calling them, the local telephone number you can get from Nehow's Local Guide after you finish the booking.

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

I want to check out after the stated check-out time. What should I do?

A late check-out can only be arranged with the hotel and usually depends on availability at the time of your stay. You can ask about the possibility at the front desk upon arrival.

    Beachmere, Australia | Oct 14, 2015 | Trip type: Family

    We stayed for three nights in this restored heritage hotel in a garden suite. The hotel is in the unspoilt village of Xizhou, just 25 minutes out of Dali old town by local bus (8yuan each way) surrounded by fertile fields and flat paths suitable for exploring by bicycle.
    Our suite was on the first floor and consisted of a sitting area with sofa, kettle and tea/coffee making facility, a bathroom with shower area and a lovely huge copper bath (big enough for two side by side!) and the bedroom with a massive bed. Windows ran along the length of the room and looked out onto the central courtyard, definitely not a garden as I understand it.
    A western or Yunnan breakfast was included and we ate in the dining room which is open to the elements at one end. Gas heaters keep some diners warm enough, others get cold! Our first night we ate in the restaurant as we arrived late and it was raining. The meal was very bland and expensive, I didn't enjoy it.
    I was disappointed that there was no cosy communal seating area, only a couple of uncomfortable day beds in the reception area, again all open to the elements. It would be lovely to have somewhere with a roaring fire that we could sit, other than our room.
    I thoroughly recommend staying out of Dali town and Xizhou is vibrant and interesting without the crowds, bicycling was easy and also many people rent ebikes.
    I enjoyed the historic value of this hotel, staff were responsive and service was good.

  • Lovely old heritage building a short distance from Dali so quiet and peaceful
    Corina M
    Shanghai, China | Oct 4, 2015 | Trip type: Family

    This is beautiful place. The hotel is situated in an heritage building. The rooms are beautiful and surrounding an ancient court yard. The hotel is 19km from the the old city of Dali in a Bai village. We drive ourselves but when you have a driver or even if you are with public transport it wouldn't be difficult to get around here. But the town itself is very nice. Actually better then the noisy, busy Dali although we liked to walk around here too. Breakfast and dinner is served in a beautiful restaurant where you sit between ancient walls, very nice. We drove around a bit (the bikes were sold out, would be nicer then with the car but we were too late) and saw beautiful village life with an even better marker then right around the corner of the hotel and also Erhai lake is close by. My kids also loved this place as they could wander around the court yard and play there. I would stay here again if you are going to Dali!

  • I love this place
    Sep 7, 2015 | Trip type: Solo travel

    It would have been our best romantic tour got away ever! We spent 4 nights here. The Garden View Suite is very well appointed, very large. Special as these were old converted Bai-style houses from nearby villages. Everyday there's wonderful local market that let us learned and appreciated Bai culture. We had the most memorable dinner here. It felt extremely special because the staffs really gave them very best to make guest feel special.

  • Amazing service and huge family suite
    Sep 4, 2015 | Trip type: Family

    From the moment you walk in you feel at home. Great location and hotel services. We stayed in family suite since we were 5. We did not feel cramped at all. The suites are very large and spacious. The rooms had everything you can think of. Staff provides great customer service from front desk to room service. Food was great. We were able to have complimentary breakfast, tea and coffee as well as other beverages. I would recommend Sky Valley and definitely stay here again.

  • A Yunnan dream! Lovely restored ancient courtyard remote of the very touristic Dali ancient town.
    Beijing, China | Aug 9, 2015

    We have travelled a lot of quite nice and upscale hotels throughout the world, but this is truly a very special place! An ancient courtyard restored with a lot of dedication, love for details and passion by a Chinese-American local... In addition to a truly unique place the dinner in the open air restaurant is simply amazing - local fresh food with a modern touch and quite reasonable prices.
    The best is the extremely friendly and helpful staff, reading nearly every wish from your eyes only!
    Rooms might not be the most spacious ones due to the original layout of the courtyard, but very modern and tastefully furnished.
    What to say - only the place is worth a travel to Dali! We will be back soon...
