Hotel offers Changshui Airport drop-off three times daily at 0800, 1300 and 1700, and takes about 35 minutes. Must arrange in advance. Otherwise, the cheapest way to get to the airport is to take a short 5 minute taxi ride to Xiyi Hotel at XiaoXiMen for around 10-12 yuan, then airport shuttle bus no. 1 for 25 yuan, about 30-40 minutes duration. The shuttle bus stops in the parking lot of Xiyi Hotel. It doesn't run around the clock but does go pretty late (past midnight). If you're catching the shuttle at the airport after arriving in Kunming, buy a bus ticket first at the silver-colored booth located on the sidewalk to your right just after exiting the airport. The buses are parked in the street across from the booth. The subway from the airport to town is still in the works.
I've stayed in a business single on the 25th floor as well as an executive room on the 27th. Both rooms were nonsmoking but I could still smell cigarette fumes via the vents in both. The A/C in the exec room actually worked, while the A/C in the regular room never went below approx 75F. Breakfast included with the exec room was on the 26th floor, and had both an egg station and noodle station, but there was much less variety overall than the great spread on the 28th floor, where all non-execs eat. Stick with the 28th floor buffet. Happy hour is also included with the exec room, but doesn't offer much. Towels in both rooms were soft but not very absorbent, probably from too much softener. Price for the exec room was about 120 yuan more, worth it to me for the A/C.
