A very comfortable room and bed on the Executive floor of this big hotel - at a very reasonable cost. All the staff are very helpful and speak sufficient english for easy communication. I dined in the Chinese restaurant, choosing on a well translated menu, and relaxed with cold beer in the airy lobby bar. Breakfast in the Executive lounge... More

I stayed 2 nights in Kai Wah Kunming Yunnan and I was firstly very impressed by their new International Airport. The design is not far away from the Calatrava style with its nightly illuminated picture to be one of the best I ever saw. At arrival, you are immediately informed that the real Shagri La is at a 40 minutes... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights based on our tour leader's recommendation. No major complaint about the room, everything is great, bed is cozy, bathroom is great. The only flaw in our room is that the heater is not functioning well, even after we set at 30 degree Celsius, and after a technician came and a few phone calls... More

booked 2 rooms for 2 nights. Check in was a breeze, very efficient and polite. Rooms were very clean with a great bathroom and toiletries. The concierge arranged great tickets, at a reduced price, to see the show Dynamic Yunnan. The seats were 5 rows from the stage and normally went fir 360 RMB per ticket. We got a price... More

The room was clean and the location of the hotel is not to bad - it's actually pretty good for when arriving by train. Unfortunately the staff speaks no English beside 5 to 10 standard sentences. The pool and the gym were horrible - especially the pool and it's surroundings. Half of the amenities were broken. And in the toilet... More

We would like to thank Assistant Manager Catherine Zhou for her amazing help with our questions about kunming during our stay here. The hotel staff arranged a day trip with a local taxi woman for 700kwai to stone forest, and then golden temple and back to our hotel. The hotel itself is great! Nice lobby area, good looking pool (so... More

Checked in at this kunming hotel for two nights. Getting to the hotel from Airport was pretty easy (airport shuttle no: 2, get off at the last stop - kunming railway station - take taxi or just walk if you traveling light). This use to be the Westin Kunming, though Westin left after a year of operation, but the 5... More

Caring staff, lovely rooms, good food, great location for seeing the city. Walk to indoor/outdoor bazaar. Beautiful mountain views. Management, front desk staff, business staff all went out of their way to help us when our daughter lost her passport.

The hotel seems to promise a lot with the marble, glass, and soaring ceiling of the lobby, but the watered-down, over-priced drinks at the bar, the aching air-conditioning, wavering wi-fi and worn carpets tell the true story. This place is getting by, more or less, and little money is going into routine maintenance. The pool is grimy, and swim at... More

Great location, 15 years old, mostly well maintained (pool has seen better days), rooms are very well appointed, so was very happy overall, with the exception of poor wifi that dropped out constantly and was slow when you could get online. Candy, the guest relations manager, was excellent, booked some train tickets for us and changed our room (twin to... More
