Disgusting in every way
We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the lobby all that vanished once we got up to the room. The smell of mildew was horrible and the silicone in the bathroom wa mouldy and horrible. The bed was very hard which isnt necessarily a bad thing.
Now for the most horrible part was the breakfast, the smell was revolting and the closest image that comes to mind is pigs eating from their troughs. Every option for food was slop, was feral. The cereal option whoch oine would think safe from the rest was stale and obviously had sat there for at least a year, same with the bread. This place needs to up the aunty if they want western visitors to even consider their accommodation.

A five star hotel in whose uni....
Cold french fries for breakfast. Broken wall safes. Wifi that never works. Toilets that clog with just a strip of paper because the water pressure is so poor. A front desk that promises to fix your problems, but only occasionally remembers to send someone up to do so. If these are the benefits you look forward to, then this might be the hotel for you.
As a backpacker, camper and all-round vagabond, I'm pretty tolerant about my accommodation - but when a two or three star hotel masquerades as a five star, I can't help but feel cheated. In the two days I stayed here, hardly an hour passed that I didn't regret my choice.
That's not to say it wasn't a five star once. The rooms were spacious and looked out on a quiet, tree filled courtyard. On the surface, it looked promising. That's before you notice the filthy carpets, the broken appliances, and take in the poor laissez faire service. Mr. Fawlty himself would have done more to keep a guest happy. You can bet that I counted down the hours to departure, and left as soon as the next hotel was available to take me on.
After three years of regular visits to Dali, I'm sorry to that his hotel has been my greatest disappointment A five-star hotel? In whose universe, I can' help asking.

Regent Hotel is probably one of the best hotels in Dali old town. This time, I went to Dali for a convention, and the organizer booked this hotel for me. It is a walking distance from old town (about 10-15 minutes). The only thing I should complain is that the lighting in room was not bright enough. Actually it was too dark.

Dated and dirty hotel
Stayed for one night with a group tour. The hotel is huge. It is dated and in need of upgrade and maintenance. The room is dirty. The bathroom show door leaks. Forget about adjusting the heating and cooling system. It did not work.
WiFi did not work. I tried the internet cable and it worked OK
Breakfast was below average, compared to other hotels. They do mostly group tours.
Unless you can get a good deal here or can't find another hotel, stay away.

5 stars in name, 3 stars in re....
And I am being generous in the ratings.
This is another example of a 5 stars hotel that has lost it's glamour and grandeur due to lack of upkeep, maintenance and repairs. I was told by our guide that because of the proximity of hotel to Dali Gucheng (Old Town) they are always full, perhaps explained the hotel attitude whether it is kept top-notched condition or not customers will still come. Which is kind of sad because it can be a beautiful hotel.
Coming into the hotel lobby it is quite grand and spacious and the whole area is adorned with beautiful marbles of all kinds (statues, wall carvings etc) which the city (Dali) is famous for.
But after that everything went downhill.
The room I have was spacious and facing the inner courtyard with lots of trees and unfortunately also plenty of noisy birds. This time of the year air-conditioning is not available, thus have to open all windows to get air circulation and also put up with those noises.
The wear and tear of the hotel really showed in the bathroom. Only after I got in the shower with water running that I discovered the shampoo/bath dispenser was broken and unusable that I had to hurry and grab the only soap bar I saw by the sink without realizing there was a bottle each of shampoo and bath gel hidden in the drawer next to the sink. The photo showed the 2 unused bottles afterwards. The exposed lights above the bathtub were simply unattractive. Shower stall had mildew around edges and unclean.
As for breakfast buffet it was unappetizing to say the least even for Asians and most foods on the warm plates were cold. For many Westerners it probably would be unpalatable and strange.
The wear and tear continue in the hallways upstairs leading to the rooms with old and crumpled carpeting in certain spots.
Would I recommend this hotel? Probably not unless there is no better choice.
