Stayed here on 2 occasions this year in January and March 2015. Location Extremely convenient as it's surrounded by shopping malls and an underground supermarket available next to the hotel. It's located right smack in the old downtown area of Kunming and a very lively place. Easy access to food stalls and shops towards the right of the hotel and... More

Hardware is great - here I would rate it even excellent. Nice rooms, spacious, the bathroom too, best possible location in the city center and a gorgeous breakfast (havent experienced anything similiar in Yunnan). Heater worked (was there in Feb - so needed it) not a really charming hotel of course but all at its place for a good 4*-hotel.... More

The hotel is located in one the central business areas, offers many possibilities for shopping and eating, or simply for strolling in the large pedestrian area. The room was spacious and well equipped, and the twin beds were full size and comfortable. We stayed on the 25th floor with a magnificent view of the city. The breakfast buffet was among... More

I spent 11 nights at this hotel. The staff were always charming and helpful although communicating in English was occasionally a problem. Breakfast offered a wonderful variety of foods and the croissants were really excellent, amongst the best I have eaten anywhere. I had a comfortable room on the 18th floor. There were two problems. Firstly, logging onto the Wi-Fi... More

I stayed in the New Era Hotel for two nights in Nov 2014 at a cost of about $100/night. I thought it was a nice hotel and had no problems whatsoever. The room had all the amenities one expects in a normal hotel room, the bed was comfortable, and everything was clean. The hotel is located in the heart of... More

Here I found the best and largest breakfast during my Yunnan trip. I stayed at this hotel on two occasions. One night/room was perfect, the other had a problem with the shower which did not work. The staff was not especially friendly, no smiles! But the location is good, also not too far from airport.

The hotel location is great and the hotel staff were very helpful. It goes downhill from there. The air-conditioning barely worked, the WiFi was consistently weak, and the bed was too hard. The breakfast was mediocre, and it was difficult finding a staff member that could speak English. This hotel is advertised as a four star hotel. It would be... More

We stayed 2 nights here, occupied 2 rooms during a 3 week stay in China. The location served our purposes- near snack shops, restaurants, and a mall we could walk to- also the fabulous "Dynamic Yunnan' ethnic dance show. Our only complaint is the in- room safe in one of our rooms stopped working a few hours after we entered... More

We stayed 2 nights here on our 35 day trip around China and found it very comfortable. The location was good and on the first night we walked to a restaurant called 'Old House Restaurant' which was great. We found the staff friendly and very helpful in giving directions to places such as a supermarket etc. There was always someone... More

The New Era Hotel is located in the heart of the city. We stayed five nights in this hotel, in a room on the executive floor. The room is very comfortable, the bed was of good quality. The breakfast is not very interesting and the temperature of the airco is too high during the night. The staff is friendly and... More
