TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Linden Centre Dali
The Linden Centre is a beautiful hotel with a sense of history and every modern convenience. The rooms are stylishly furnished with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. There a nice touches and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone speaks English and it is possible to arrange tours and activities on site. The bar serves excellent cocktails and has a selection of wine. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a choice between western and Chinese breakfast. I only sampled the western breakfast and enjoyed good coffee, eggs, juice and toast.
