Dali (Yunnan Province)
Comments from Utopians:
"The Queen Inn, off Yu Er lu (number 232-1), 133-8872-5255. Walking south down Yu Er lu, look down the side streets and watch out for the sign which looks like a king from a pack of cards. A delightful place, run by a guy from Kunming and his sister. The rainbow flags dotted around the living room area are a subtle sign amongst the locals. Tasteful, modern designed rooms are around Y$128/night." -- Phil, Apr 27, 2012

The hotel has both a main branch, with beautiful executive rooms with safe and free Internet, and a nearby annex inside a heritage building near the park. Breakfast is US$6 and has a very good selection of foreign and Chinese foods to choose from. Staff are impressive: security writes down the license plate of every taxi that drops you off or picks you up; bellboys speak English and are extremely helpful, as are the desk staff. 7-11 just around the corner to stock up your mini-fridge.

NANJING (Jiangsu Province) -- area code (86-25)
- Zhongshan Hotel
200 Zhongshan Rd, 8336-1888. Good central downtown location from which all attractions are a short taxi ride away. Executive rooms are huge with free Internet, king size bed, and living room set. No smoking rooms available. Clean and plush. Bathroom is large with separate shower and tub. Breakfast is fairly good, but mostly Asian flavors (there's a McDonald's next door if you really have to). Room safe is too small, but will hold most valuables. No problem for same-sex couples if you book a double room.
SHANGHAI -- area code (86-21)
- Astor House (Pujiang Hotel)
15 Huangpu Rd, Utopia Map, 6324-6388. Shanghai's classic heritage hotel. Established in 1846 during the Qing Dynasty. Now retrofitted with modern rooms that maintain the heritage ambiance. Great location just minutes walk from The Bund and opposite the Russian Embassy. Easy to get taxis to and from. Large room safe for laptops and free Internet in executive rooms. Breakfast is OK, but the overlit dining room loops the same song by the Chinese Kenny G over and over. If you can, get a peek at their famous Peacock Ballroom and imagine the swinging Shanghai parties that took place there once upon a time. No problem for same-sex couples if you book a double room.
- Metropole Hotel UTOPIA VERIFIED MAY 2012
The Bund, Utopia Map. One of Shanghai's classic old art deco buildings, although the interior has been modernized without much thought to period decor. Fantastic location just two blocks from the river. Low price for a mid-range hotel in this city. Hotel policy states no visitors in the rooms after 11pm.
