Nov 15, 2013. Based on a short overnight stay, no opinion on location. The lobby areas are kept up and suggest a 4 star plus past, the rooms not so much. Our room was quiet, and I assume they provide good value (room was booked as part of all inclusive package - no specific charge). A few minor things didn't... More

Kunming is a lovely city. The hotel is well located with bus--and soon to be subway-stops at the front door. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Food is OK, breakfast buffet is a good way to start your day. The front desk staff has limited English but will somehow manage to get you what you need. If you take a... More

This hotel is OLD, it seems to have been allowed to run down. While the rooms were as clean as they could be, the carpets were showing need of replacement, and were almost threadbare in places, the tapware in the bathroom was corroded, there were watermarks on the bathtub, and worst of all half the rooms in the hotel overlook...

Please do not use this hotel, especially if you are a non-smoking female. The online images of this hotel are many years old, it is actually badly run down in a state of disrepair. The beautiful pools in the advertising are cracked and empty. The foyer staff will not communicate with a female and have no concept of a non-smoking... More

Comfortable and well appointed rooms with great shower. Staff helpful as long as the English didn't get too complicated. Meals good - breakfast catered for european as well as Asian although clientele predominately asian. Evening meal excellent - wait staff keen to help but English limited

Located on the Beijing road in the heart of Kunming, the hotel actually is within walking distance from Kunming Bus Terminal and Train station and about 15 min drive from Airport. Its very conveniently located for stop-over travellers to other China cities. The hotel itself is a little dated but okay for brief stays. Room tariff and amenities is reasonable,... More

It was interesting to see businessmen and tourists from all over the world in the lobby here. The room was nicely appointed, but not as fancy as one would expect from seeing the lobby. The carpet was dirty or stained, the walls stained. The room was otherwise clean and had a trouser press. Great view of the city. What we... More

We stayed at the Golden Dragon for a couple of days over Christmas on our way to Lijiang, Dali, Shangrila and found the service excellent and the included breakfast was a banquet of East and West with everything imaginable. We stayed there again on our way back ten days later and it was exactly the same ...only unusual part was... More

Recently refurbushed the hotel has very decent rooms- free internet (cable) small bathroom staff is well trained and willing restaurant has not bee refurbished yet and is too small when hotel is full. Food offerings are ridiculous (very little choice during their buffet dinners)
