I was on a group tour here in late May. The rooms and general ambience are appropriate for a mid level hotel, but as a coffee drinking tourist, I really struggled, as this place is coffee-less until 8:30, at which time you can buy coffee at a nearby McDonald's. Also, the breakfast buffet reminded me of my high school cafeteria,... More

Maybe it's because they are new or maybe it's a management problem. Checking in, even at a non-peak time with an advance reservation was like re-inventing the wheel. Frantic running around, scratching through stacks of paper. Finally got it done. Room well furnished, but tiny. No in-room safe. At least I could open a window for fresh air. But outside... More

This is a decent hotel - nothing fancy, but also nothing to complain about. Rooms a functional and clean, breakfast is ok, gym is large and well equipped. But be aware that this hotel is located in "New Kunming", which is a completely new city pretty much still in the making, there is absolutely nothing to see and to do... More

What everyone said about the hotel's air-conditioning is true. It's useless calling room service as all they do is to come in and turn the thermostat to 16C. Spent 3 nights in April with warm and stale air. Fortunately, my wife was smart enough to insist in having a standing fan in the room. It was just bearable with the... More

New and Grand Property but far away from the City. I have invited there with my family for dinner. Very large Buffet dinner and separate corner for Yunnan Specialty Rice noodles. Overall good place but far away from the city centre. Also, you can go to the Kunming's wholesale market (Losiwan LITC) from this hotel. If you are planing to... More

This hotel is located in the outskirts of Kunming, about 45 minutes by car from the Kunming airport or 30 minutes from the city centre. My hubby and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel for our Yunnan and Shangrila tours the following morning. Hotel foyer is massive with separate children play area section close to the restaurant and some... More

It is a good hotel hotel meets international standard although its location is about half an hour away from Kunming city centre. Room is spacious and comfortable. However, aircon is an issue but not sure if this is apolicy or norm for the hotels in Yunnan. Believe there is a pre-set room temperature which is very warm for visitor from... More

Under the instruction of the GM to cut cost, aircon only effective a few hours a day, the room temperature constant at 27C-28C, you are unable to lower the temperature coz it's control from central.

This is a new hotel in a massive new district in the south of Kunming (Chenggong) which is still under construction. About an hour from downtown, but have a map and Chinese address, as none of the taxi drivers know the area or the hotel - though that will eventually change. The hotel and rooms are pretty good, and the... More

A very nice hotel with friendly staff but it's a heck of a loooong way - like 40+kms) from the new Kunming airport. Taxi is the only sensible option from the airport (bus into Kunming first and then taxi can be done but wastes a lot of time, and only if you can speak Mandarin). Taxi takes an hour, costs... More
