Spent 2 nights at the Grand Park Hotel in Kunming about 2 weeks ago. The hotel is very well located. From the hotel, it took me 5 minutes to walk to the Yunnan Art Theatre, where the fabulous Dynamic Yunnan show is performed, and 15 minutes to walk to the shopping district downtown where modern department stores and the Bird and Flower market are located. Of course there is a park (forgot the name) which is only 2 minutes away from the hotel. I went there on my last morning in Kunming for a very relaxing stroll.
The room that I had was on the 27 th floor with a panoramic view of at least part of the Kunming city. It was very spacious and comfortable. I didn't find the room expensive. I paid a total of about $212 Canadian which included one breakfast (ordered from room service menu). I would recommend making advanced booking on line via Grand Park's own reservation website as you would get the best price this way. Travel agent's special price was higher than the advanced on line price.
The bell boys were very helpful. The only criticism that I had was that the staff at the reception were rather cold. They were polite but hardly ever smiled. Not sure what's wrong. Staff who are in a customer service oriented industry really ought to be more personable. Despite this, I would recommend this hotel to visitors in Kunming.
