This was a typical Chinese 4 star (divide by two and subtract 1). If your expectations are low, then you will be pleasantly surprised. Location is okay but hard to find the front of the hotel which is on the side (makes sense in China). Rooms sparse and only marginally clean. Bring your own toiletries.

Positives: Clean rooms (don't forget to ask for a non-smoking floor) Inexpensive Good, central location Free wifi in lobby Negatives: Breakfast buffet Smoking in lobby Tired decor For the price, I guess I would stay there again.

Stayed three nights and had no major complaints. Was disappointed with the old look of the room and mediocre service, but it's hard to find a better location in the heart of Kunming. Note: taxis are very reluctant to drive out to the new airport from this area. There are shuttle buses around, or you can take a taxi to... More

Rooms were simple but clean. No western-option for Breakfast. People at Reception spoke very little English. Location was good. Walking distance from the Lake and small restaurants and bars. Overall, good value for money. We paid around 300 RMB per night.

The good news is the hotel is well located to the lake and the great restaurants and bars close by. Also its cheap - I think I paid 300 rmb for a clean but small room with a bed like concrete! The rest of the news is not great - breakfast is very local, very little English spoken at reception... More

This hotel is close to the Green Lake and many shops as well as small restaurants. We walked in the early morning to see those exercising to Chinese music and doing Thai Chi. The hotel had no one who spoke English.. The room was comfortable and the breakfast Chinese with a few Eastern breakfast items. Adequate for us. Staff were... More

Green Lake View Hotel is a four-star hotel in the downtown of Kunming city. It's better to book on line in advance because it will be much cheaper than usual ways.

I have stayed here many times because of the good service, English speaking staff and excellent rooms. The hotel is good value (330 RMB) for the standard of the room and amenities. The shower and bath is excellent as are the beds, TV and cable internet. The breakfast which comes included is a bit of a let down as far... More

No axe to grind here as I am 100% travel with over 60 country experience almost none of that on cruises or tours. Yes I am on a 35 day Asian 'tour' at this moment but that's the way Asia is done in my books. To the point, I am at this hotel AT THIS MOMENT and happened to review... More
