A very fine hotel in an excellent location in Kunming. Walk across the street and there is a lovely park and lake. The amenities at the hotel are first class. The hotel was originally built in the 1950's but has been totally refurbished and so you have big rooms and modern services

Really enjoyed our stay here. The service was good and unobtrusive, the buffet breakfast was well presented and excellent quality. Room even included a dvd player. Most importantly, the location is superb as it faces the lake. Also, close to Western restaurants and coffee lounges.

I truly loved the Green Lake Hotel. Situated across from Green Lake, this hotel is a great combination of old world class and new world amenities. In the morning, out front, you really don't want to miss the group of people doing Tai Chi. They are really great. The rooms were spacious, and include the baseline of things I need... More

Located in the heart of Kunming, across the street from Green Lake, this hotel excels in all ways. Beautiful architecture, attentive staff and quiet, comfortable rooms. Breakfast buffet is outstanding. Location is great for those who enjoy walking. Overall, a real "touch of class" and a great choice as a destination hotel.

Your first impression is the faux-Egyptian lobby in purple, gold and dark woods with huge floral center pieces, a rotating golden lotus fountain and live music--a bit over the top. Stayed for a total of six nights on different floors, rooms pretty much the same whether you opt for the executive or standard type, probably not worth the upgrade. Beds... More

It's tough getting high quality service in this part of the world. I arrived very late and was treated well as a Westerner. The room was excellent. The breakfast delicious. The location by Cui Hu is beautiful. My only complaint is that to keep the room lights on you have to keep the key in the slot, but with the... More

The room was somewhat cramped but very nicely appointed with a window through to the bathroom to add light and openness. The service was excellent. On our first night we asked for recommendations for a nearby restaurant and the doorman explained where we could find a nice, casual restaurant just a block away, right on the lake. He came running... More

Rooms are very well appointed with lots of amenities, clean and quiet. The heat seemed to malfunction on day 2, leaving us too warm at night (in contrast to most of the "outdoor" restaurants in Kunming). The lobby is a bit pretentious and not very charming. The staff were pleasant but there was some arguing over the details of our... More

Located directly across from Green Lake, the hotel is nicely situated with boutique shops, old temple and shopping center nearby even a Walmart. The rooms are comfortable with all the ameneties including toothbrush/paste, shaving kits, sewing kits and hairbrush. The beds are comfortable but not plush with nice down duvets. The restaurant is OK with a decent breakfast focused primarily... More

The hotel was centrally located and near to many restaurants and tea house. From the back entrance of the hotel, guests have access to a few renowned tea houses. In fact there is a very well-known tea house located at the 4th of the hotel quiet and tranquil and renowned for its collection of rare teas. From the front entrance... More
