The hotel grounds are beautiful: expansive lobby with great furnishings. But everything good stops there. As an IHG rewards member I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, nor will I stay at another IHG hotel throughout my Asia trip. Let me explain: We booked our room through C-Trip and when we checked into the hotel they put us in... More

Brillant property - amazingly large in scale. The lobby was immense with a huge Christmas tree when we were there. The service was super friendly and generally efficient. Rooms were very comfortable with a large bath and shower. Bit downside was the lack of drawer space. The gym and pool were awesome - everything you could want. I loved the... More

The hotel is beautiful and both the room and the services are excellent. It is very much the Intercontinental standards. Dianchi is a high-end residential area with wide tree-lined avenues. The hotel is only a 10-minute walk to the lake. However, it is not as handy to the city centre (if it is, the room rate should be much higher... More

Had a chance of staying in Intercontinental Kunming. Its a marble extravaganza in an picturesque lakeside neighborhood. A huge structure, spacious rooms, excellent service ( though English is rarely understood by the hotel staffs, even in reception desk.

Stayed one night on a business trip to Kunming. As we arrived around 10 pm and left early the next morning, did not get to enjoy the hotel too much. From what I can tell, it looks like a large resort style resort with 7 or 8 different blocks and can get a bit confusing trying to locate your room.... More

This hotel is probably your only international option when visiting Kunming. The hotel is a conference hotel and while I was staying there was an ABBOT and VISA conference going on.

What a magnificent hotel. It starts with the size and surrounding. Bautiful parklike surrounding with enormous buildings. It starts when you drive up the ramp to the reception and there enter into the cathedral (literally) like first and central building. All is decorated very nice.
