“Nice scenic and quiet getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Nice quiet comfortable conference hotel facing a lake. Great for early morning walks or evening people watching. 30 minutes from new Kunming airport. Love the coffee lounge. Expensive coffee but well woth it ( columbian, blue mountain, civet...). Decent local and continental spread for breakfast (rice porrige-congee, dumplings, freshly prepared noodles). Love the japanese resturant near the lobby lift (kobe 5panyaki). Try the umesu plum drink with soda water! Great room. Surprised they even have flat screen near the bath tub!

Located on the small lake in the heart of Kunming, it is easy access to the various activities the Chinese people enjoy. One can see several groups of Tai Chi participants early in the morning as well as individuals going through the personal routines involving strenth, balance, and flexibility. Also one can observe badmittan practice (without a net), kite flying, musicians, and card games. Plenty of good restaurants and specialty shops circle the lake providing no need to venture too far from the hotel.

The hotel has all the amenities of a first class hotel. The breakfast is excellent with a wide variey of food with the exception of the juice which comes out of a carton. The staff understands English, even the cleaning staff and they are well trained. The hotel accomodates weddings and has a wide variety of conference rooms. WiFi is free and available in each room.

This is a spendid experience, nice public areas, good, well-appointed rooms with all mod cons (fast wi-fi, TV in the bath) and a butler service, all at a reasonable price. It helps to speak Chinese as English levels are not uniform, and there isn't a no smoking policy in the public areas (so I have avoided the Chinese restaurant). Breakfast is good but otherwise western food is just OK, although redeemed by very affordable pricing. It's on the lake edge, so a nice walk is east to do at any time of day (weekend afternoons are crowded though) and a good "over-the-bridge" noodles are only a few steps away

Room Tip: Get onto a no smoking floor as the smoking floors are heavily contaminated. And get high enough up...

This was my second stay and it was a very good experience once again. High quality place at at fair price for me. Room was clean with lots of nice bathroom items like shaving and hair and dental stuff. Breakfast was above average--good coffee!

The hotel is well located by the park with a nuce lake view
The rooms are very confortable with very good cable tv for english speakers.
The reataurant offers giid meals options besides Chinese food.
The only remark is the checkin and checkout services that are very confuse and not well organized.

We came to this hotel for a trip organised for us. The rooms are nice and clean, good for a few nights. The hotel has a lovely view of the lake, which I think is good for a short walk. The restaurant is OK, good breakfast but I tried going out to local places for dinner. I think this hotel would not be so great for couples and groups.

Room Tip: Rooms on a no-smoking floor are much better with cleanliness

I stayed in a few places on my trip to China and this was one of the better ones. Rooms were nice, spacious enough and very clean. The lake is a nice attraction for a walk or stroll.
Food was better than most places in China. The lobby is a nice meeting place. Very pleasant stay, I would recommend it.
