We stayed in the twin budget room, which turned to be a very cosy little room. Yes it is a small room, but it was well furnished, clean, with everything you need, including a great bathroom. Best shower we had in China where we frequently had problems with the hot water. Best value for money we found in china (Kunming... More

I stayed here in March and was very happy with my stay. Only a few minutes walking to the lovely Green Park and near shopping areas/restaurants, Lost Garden's location is very convenient. The staffs are extremely helpful and are good English speakers. The room was a nice size and clean as was the bathroom. The food was very good and... More

We had three nights at the Lost Garden Guest House and really enjoyed our stay. It was very centrally located being close to Green Lake which was lovely to walk around and see all the local people playing their old musical instruments and doing exercise every where. The room was just big enough for two after moving some furniture to... More

We were very fortunate to come to the Lost Garden when we first arrived in China. The staff speaks excellent English and were very helpful to us with orientation and onward travel plans. Pleasant and convenient location near Green Lake Park, temple, rail/bus ticket booking office etc. Our double room (201/301) was small, but attractive and comfortable, with a large... More

The location is very closed to the beautiful Green Lake. Restaurants, stores and supermarket are within walking distance. Staffs are helpful and also English-speaking. An approximate 15min walk will get you to one of the airport pickup and drop-off point. The price is reasonable as well. Highly recomnended!

Three of us stayed here in January 2014. The first night we were there, we were told the room we reserved was occupied (a 3-person female room), so we were given a bed in a 6 person co-ed room. The next day we were moved to the room we had reserved, but on one day we had no cold water,... More

About the water issues, we had indeed some problems during 2 days back in January because of the pipes and pressure in this old neighborhood, but it has been resolved. Too bad you couldn't experience normal conditions at the guesthouse, our showers facilities are really good, you were pretty unlucky to stay exactly when it happened. More

The location of Lost Garden is really good - in a small alley very close to Green Lake (take a print out of the instructions and map on their website). We stayed in an executive double room (208 RMB per night) on the top floor, and found it to be a nice room for the price. It was very clean... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in October for a few nights. The rooms were very nice and clean, with excellent stone work in the showers (both shared and private). Also, the food was very good in the restaurant. Most impressive was the staff there. Snow truly bent over backwards to help us with booking trains, buses, and daytrips. As... More

Coming from Lijiang, I looked for a place where I can easily get to the airport afterwards, 5 minutes taxi ride from the Lost Garden brings you to where the shuttles to the airport leave. But the close location to the lake, which is my favorite place each time I visit Kunming (twice so far) is a big plus. Stacy,... More

Though staff helpful, and some areas of the guesthouse good, Rooms 104 and 103 in the basement were not so good. When we arrived, both rooms permeated with the smell of bad plumbing, and with little in the way of ventilation, we could not have slept in them. There was a large patch of black mould growing on the bedroom... More
