This hotel was in a good central location. all of the staff spoke at least a bit of English and were very friendly and eager to help us out. I agree with other reviews that the hotel could use a renovation, but it was clean and perfectly suitable. The bathroom in our room had been renovated and was quite nice.... More

This hotel is way beyond its peak. It must have been quite nice when it was built but now seems run down and shabby. I think some of it might have been modelled on the old Imperial in Tokyo as the corridors upstairs reminded me of FRank Lloyd Wright with rather low ceilings, being fabric walls and brown panelling. But... More

It should be noted that I could have gotten a better deal through the hotel's own web site than thru Agoda. The room was spacious, but things like the bathroom showed its age because it was not done with the best craftsmanship.The hotel is near the center of the city. There is a luxury mall one block away. A 24hr... More

The room we had was spacious, the bathroom was fine, everything was clean, and we were quite happy with it. We also only had one towel when we first checked in, but we mentioned it at reception as we went out to look for dinner and the second towel was there when we got back. After that they always replaced... More

As was said before it is clean, but it could use a little touch up otherwise. More important it was clean. They are a little frugal with towels (we had one hand towel and big bathroom towel in the room - for two people. But after asking they sent up another set. I just think for a room of two... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of January 2012 for two nights as part of a tour of Kunming. We mostly agree with the comments made by other reviewers. The hotel is becoming tired and could use a renovation. However the issues are mostly cosmetic, except for the bathroom. Our room was large, on a non-smoking floor (difficult... More

I go to Kunming at least twice a year. Have stayed at this hotel at least 6 times (laterly I have moved to a cheaper one for other reasons). I like it for its mainly Western style buffet breakfast. Rooms and services are average for this class. It's very close to the train station. Getting a taxi is not too... More

The Sakura is an aging hotel in a great part of Kunming. The hotel has definitely seen better days, but is still a decent mid-range option for the area where it is located. The hotel is just a short 12 to 15 minute drive from the airport. The staff were all friendly and spoke an acceptable level of English. The... More

Good sized room, hard-as-a-rock bed. After the first night sleeping here I awoke feeling like the "Princess and the Pea." The bruises weren't showing but I had to take Tylenol for the all-over body pain. Only one lady spoke English at reception; Jeffrey, the bellhop, was bi-lingual and extremely helpful answering questions, etc. The Chinese/American breakfast was a C+; on... More

Very Good Value for comfortable rooms, english speaking staff and an alright breakfast. Close to airport and city centre, although very hard for the taxi driver to find, likely due to limited signage. Sure it's not five star, but it's sufficient for a quick trip.
