“Nice, but walls are thin!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

I stayed here for two nights. Its about a 15 minute walk to the main center area in Kunming, which is interesting to explore. I didn't mind the hotel, however, the walls for the rooms are super thin, therefore, if your neighbour wants to blast their television and talk until the late hours, you will hear it! Something to consider if you are a light sleeper and you need to get up early. One staff member could speak some english, but otherwise you'll have to know some language or have your language book. Kunming is an ok city to explore for a day.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2011

I have no complaints about this hotel and would recommend it for a business traveler or anyone looking for good value.

Its entrance looks small but inside is a meandering series of rooms. The staff is polite, if not too friendly. One disadvantage is that the rooms are small, with bathrooms with see-thru doors, which may be awkward if you're traveling with friends. Location is good - around 15-20 mins walk from the main city centre (or a short cab ride).

We stayed here en route on a layover, and it is only a 15-min cab ride to the airport. I would stay here again.

Kunming is a nice city, and this was the perfect hotel to explore it. Staff speaks zero English which made life fun, but they were always forthcoming and even hailed cabs for us.

good-size room to street, not 100% up-to-date but very passable building maintenance,
when we had a internet connection problem, staff would mobilize people from our of nowhere to try to solve the mysteries, and they did.

Would stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we were very happy about it. Yes, the staff doesn't speak english but they are doing everything they can to help you and understand you if you need it! They helped us organize our little trip to the stone forest in Kunming, by writing in advance in chinese on a paper some indications for the taxi and the bus, which was very nice from them. The room are spotless, the bed very confortable, and they have free internet with a fast connection (no wifi). The hotel is not really in the city center, so if you want to go around, be ready to catch a bus or a taxi (very cheap, but write down in chinese where you want to go).
Very good value also, double rooms are even cheaper than in some backpackers!!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2009

We stayed a couple of nights in the Fairlyland Tuodong on separate occasions. It is a business type hotel with several locations in Kunming and Yunnan. For the first night I booked through elong and got quite a good rate (189Rmb). What you get is a small but comfortable and clean room. The bathroom has glass walls - something to consider - but all fittings worked well. There is also a separate tap with drinking water - good for brushing teeth. No hair dryer. There is free internet - cable. The air con controls are all in Chinese and can be a little hard to work out - you can have heating or cooling.

The second time we made no booking. The hotel was full with only a suite available (289 Rmb). You get a discount from rack rate. The suite is big - living room and bedroom with big bathroom. Probably better value than many hotels.

The hotel is well located in the city. walking distance to the Government Square and Jinmabiji Square. Rooms are quiet, modern and clean. Staff at the reception is very helpful. The lady called information to help us find the local bus to go to the Golden Temple. Domestic long-distance telephone call is free and there is free internet access. The reception staff also call our Dali hotel to arrange pick up from the train station since we would be arriving Dali very early on the overnight sleeper train from Kunming. All in all, excellent accommodation and service for the price.
