This is by far the worst place I've ever stayed in: mosquitos in room, absolutely no AC, bed as hard as a board (not kidding). As a woman business traveler, I was most disturbed about the balcony door that didn't lock. The bottled water was cold, however, and the shower had great water pressure.

The Dianchi Garden Hotel & Spa in Kunming is totally unprepared for non Chinese speaking guests. As with Kunming itself, the tourism industry is geared up for a domestic market only so if you like to struggle over the bill, menus in the restaurant, long discussions on how to get your deposit back for your room keys or simply getting...

the room we had was really huge, clean and nice...but the rest feels like a place for elder people been on a insurance paid rehabilition trip...the hotel is endlessly huge, that maybe the reason why the management seems not be capable to renovate as fast as needed to keep such a huge place intact without the customer seeing that a...

This hotel was arranged by our business partner & a number of rooms were reserved for our group. I checked in late on Saturday evening & luckily my colleagues were there to help because no one speaks English. The hotel itself is very big but as mentioned in other reviews, quite run down. The rooms were spacious & seems like... More

On the up-side, the hotel is set in a very nice environment with view over great gardens and a lake from all the rooms. A lot of green..., very nice! There are many down-sides though, for non-mandarin speakers life is pretty difficult as only few of the staffs speak english. Staff is absolutely non-effective and slow, don't count on them... More

We were directed to this hotel by a relative who has a friend working there. Naturally we got a good rate and were already checked in before our arrival. This hotel may have seen some better days. It is a low rise structure with many buildings that sprawl out across the grounds. It was a 5 minute walk through a... More
