“No Complaints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Once in your room at the Jinjiang you could be in any generic hotel almost anywhere in any large city in the world. That is not a bad thing. Everything seems to work as it should, from reception to the plumbing. The airport bus is at your front door (every 20 min. from 5am to midnight.) and the train station is a 5 min. walk away. To go elsewhere, taxis are very cheap.

The smoking problem didn't cause me grief, but I am sure some guests just ignored the rules. Non-the-less, smoking in public places in China is rapidly vanishing.

This was a very nice hotel. The room was comfortable and clean. Get breakfast included as it's decent with both Chinese and western selections.

It is very easy to get to by bus from the airport. There is a bus terminal just 100m away and the train station is just down the street so it is easy to get to the sites you might want to see. Make sure you get the sites name and location in Chinese since not many people at stations speak any English.

This hotel was good value, we specified what time we were arriving so they wouldn't let the room go. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and seating areas. However,as others have said, we had two rooms on a non smoking floor and they stank of cigarettes. The check in lady was brusque and not helpful any of the times we spoke to her. Finally, since one of my family got sick I put the do not disturb sign on the door. The cleaning people for our floor came into the room three times after knocking to ask if they could clean!
Very noisy and difficult to walk around outside the hotel because of work on the metro. The hotel is in a good location though, about 20 minutes walk from the shopping areas and flower marker and some great places to eat in the streets around.

The hotel is located very near facilities like train station and transport hubs. The airport-city bus is just outside the hotel. (25 Yuan each way). The cheaper price quoted by most online booking are for rooms in the older tower block. Like most older hotels in China, there will be a bit of remnants of cigarettes smoke as 80 percent of Chinese still smokes. it is not overpowering unless you are hyper sensitive. You can only avoid this in top notch new hotels. We had a twin room for two nights on each occasion within a span of 8 days. The rooms are not big even by Chinese standard.

We can speak mandarin and hence language is of no issue but I guess the reception staff can manage with some simple English. Free in room wifi and two bottles of mineral water plus two apples were prepared for us. As Kunming city is undergoing the construction of the underground train line, several streets were either blocked or barricaded making the traffic much more chaotic and dusty. Overall, we are pleased with service, location and value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level floors if you do not want any street noise from the underground rail and road...

This is a large "Sheraton-like" level hotel with good basic rooms and amenities. It was good value for the price so no complaints about the hotel itself. Overall a decent stay.
We stayed here for just the night because of an overnight layover for our flight. The hotel is at least 30 mins away from the airport so perhaps not the most convenient location. Be warned that though it takes 30 mins at night with no traffic at all, it took us 1.5 hours in the middle of the morning with snarled traffic along the main roads and freeways. Another drawback (but this is likely common in China) is that our non-smoking room smelled faintly of smoke.

Eating tip: if you are hungry at night and feeling frugal, just around the left corner of the hotel is a road full of food stands where you can choose from various meat and veggie skewers and they grill it for you. Cheap and really delicious. Highly recommended. There is also a bakery where you can pick up some rolls for breakfast the next morning.

My extended family members comprised two grandparents, six middle age adults and two toddlers. We stayed in four rooms, simple and clean with basic facilities. December is cold but bearable; on one day when the mercury dropped to 1'C, the hotel had difficulty providing adequate heating to all the rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Beware touts who offer ridiculously cheap packages to tourist sites. Jiu Xiang is more exciting and fun compared to Xiling stone forest.
