Do not be put off by the website for this hotel which to be honest is pretty poor and does not do the hotel justice. This hotel was recommended by our son who is currently working in Kunming, I would have probably booked the Crowne Plaza in the centre had he not had a little local knowledge. The hotel is... More

A successfully remodelled local hotel set in a tranquil environment opposite the Green Lake Park. Buffet breakfast was good and we also tried the dine-in and hotel restaurant which served quite good food. However, we encountered a little problem while placing orders for our western food as the service staff had limited English proficiency. We booked both the executive standard... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on 1 + 2 June 2015. It's an impressive hotel with good service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's situated in a lovely part of town and just over the road from a large park. It has a lovely pool and good gym. Plenty of food options for breakfast on the buffet.

Attentive staff not always English proficient. Good wifi Restaurant serves limited menu at night,average in quality. Air conditioning bringing wafts of smoke even in... More

We were lucky to stay in this hotel on the first night of our 12 day visit to Yunnan. We arrived late and had a very so-so supper by the Lake (perhaps we should have braved the hotel prices and eaten in!) but we enjoyed the buzz of the jugglers, singers, kids and joggers all enjoying Friday night, and all...

Stayed in Green Lake Hotel a number of times and always like the hotel and the location. It is very nice to walk around the lake in the evening to hear and see the locals sing and dance. The rooms are of a high standard clean and comfortable. Would recommend a stay but be expected to pay around 1100 RMB... More

Green Lake is a beautiful hotel located right next to, you guessed, Green Lake (Cuihu). The common area is very grand, with a string quartet in the lobby bar. Our room was extremely comfortable, with super comfy bed and the best water pressure for the shower! The bathtub was also lovely after a long day of travel or sightseeing. The... More

We enjoyed everything about this hotel.We loved being so close to the park and being able to see the exercise classes and dance classes there. Our room was comfy and the mattress was firm. Breakfast buffet included a nice selection of noodle soups as well as cappucino (not included in the room rate) .All in all, I would be happy... More

Grand lobby with classical string quartet music each evening is a nice touch. Sumptuous Asian and Western breakfast buffet. Rooms average size, quit and comfortable. In house Chinese restaurant was very good although waitresses, who aimed to please, spoke little English.
