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.

    The Sky Valley Heritage Boutique Hotel is a restored central courtyard Bai property. Nestled into a residential neighborhood, its gates conceal a lovely garden and quiet refuge. Close by is a vibrant Bai market that is a must-see. Bicycles enable visitors to pedal out into the country past rice paddies, vegetable gardens and painstakingly worked family farms. Rooms are restored with respect for the past but with an appreciation for modern comfort. The staff is warm and welcoming and communicates well in English.

    Wonderful rooms, beautiful hotel, very kind service. But the icing on the cake was the restaurant. after our first meal there we felt no need to eat anywhere else. The hotel is quite far from the sights and center of Dali.

    In the middle of a small village outside of Dali, probably one of the nicest boutique hotel I have been staying at.
    The renovation of the old property was done at a very high standard, the staff was very helpful and well trained.
    A must is a visit of the local market, where you will meet many different ethnic groups

  • An artful beauty and a warm, memorable experience
    Jacqueline S

    My husband and I stayed for a week in this precious gem niched in a subdued residential area, away from the hustle and bustle of the old town square of Xizhou, near Dali in Yunnan. The hotel made it very easy for us to get there, with a hired-car trusted by the hotel management waiting for us at the train station when we arrived. It is such a plus that this hotel is away from the highly commercialized old town of Dali-- it is definitely worth the extra 1/2 hour ride from the train station-- to be amidst a real and charming living environment of the tribal Bai culture.

    We could feel the love and thoughtfulness that were given to the architectural renovation of this old mansion-- an amazing labor of love for several years in carefully preserving all that is precious of the original design and structures-- with stunning mood lighting throughout the properties (especially evening lighting of the courtyards!) that brought ancient tales alive--- as though the walls were telling you stories of what they have witnessed through the eras... The youtube video on the website is so touching and informative on how the owner felt the calling to preserve this ancient scholarly home. I wish it had Engish subtitles though, so that non-Chinese speaking visitors can appreciate the respectful and tender care that went into this amazing architectural feat.

    The family suite we stayed in is as spacious and beautiful as shown in its website photos, with all convenient amenities and high quality toileteries of modern-day 5 star hotels. We were delighted by how congenial and gentle the staff were, ready to help and extend themselves at requests. We feel as though we were with an extended family-- their ways are relaxed and kind, with genuine recommendations about places and local tips. Another wonderful plus was to find out that their restaurant uses daily fresh vegetables and meats, mostly organic from local farms, and no MSG. It was like eating home-cooked meals away from home!

    Not everything is perfect in any lodging, here's some to know ahead of time:
    -the bathroom washing sink drainage is not perfect, but we can empathize with the challenges of modernizing plumbing facilities in an old mansion.
    -the Western breakfast choice can use some improvement and maybe even some more varieties, though the Chinese breakfast choice was very good.
    -the rather-stark spacious hallways can use some warm decorations to bring them even more alive.

    I would have rated this gem a four and a half star shall there be such a choice, given the slight flaws described above, but just a four star would not have done our enjoyable experience justice. The small inconveniences are humbling reminders of traveling, that not everything is right at your fingertip or wish. They actually add to the charm in appreciating different cultures and histories of the place...
