This hotel left a lot to be desired, certainly is not a 5 Star hotel more like a 3 Star hotel and not an International Hotel as the name implies. The first issue was my Visa Card was rejected, for a 200 Yuan deposit, the room was paid for by voucher through my tour company. I believe the desk clerk did not know how to run a US card. We had to call my bank, they said there should not be a problem, finally got the card to go through. The room did not have either a refrigerator or safe as stated on websites showing amenities. The room itself was well appointed and clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel also advertises a Western restaurant and Western Breakfast. The menu was limited I ordered spaghetti, was simply tomato sauce with unseasoned spaghetti, the staff for the most part does not speak English and Chinese often do not use salt. That dinner was bad. As for Breakfast there were not any Western style foods other than eggs, so settled for fried eggs and a banana, the only fruit available, no bread neither; my wife did not go on this trip, she is Asian and would've been fine with the food, I do eat Asian food but I have to also be able to communicate with the servers and I don't eat spicy foods. There was also some type of Chinese convention going on and I was the only Western Guest in the place. I would not recommend staying here. I told my tour coordinator and local guide I would have preferred to have stayed at the Jinjiang Hotel in Kunming both nights and simply left for Yuanyang at an earlier time. Stone forest was so so not as I had expected; this was the only disappointing place of my 15 days in China on this trip.

if you have a choice, don't stay in this hotel. AVOID AT ALL COST !!! it is more suitable to tour group who can not complain nor do anything after they arrived. The hotel room temperature is 27 degree celcius, There is no aircon, it is turn off, and the lady technician dare to say the aircon is ON if the blower is set in the mid position, setting to high or low will not make the room cooler. A Logic raised from stupidity and ignorance. While I arrived, the door room is opened and windows are opened and the room temperature is 24 degree Celcius, at night, the temperature outside is comfortable breezy, but hotel room temperature rise to 27 degree celcius. There is NOTHING the staffs or the technician can do to lower the room temperature. They said all rooms in the same condition. It feel better you camp outside the hotel with cool breeze than sleeping in the hotel.

Quite an impressive hotel. Accommodation was good but it is located away from most things. We were there for Stone Forest. Ate in the restaurant as a consequence. Food was average only but had little choice.

Why this hotel is called “international” is a mystery. It might be hard to find a more Chinese and less international hotel. Starting with the gigantic marble-clad lobby everything in the public areas is very Chinese. Apart from a few words at reception no members of staff seemed to speak any English. There are no smoking signs everywhere as required by the law, but the policy is not enforced. Even members of the staff smoke openly indoors, even while providing service. The hotel is conveniently located for visiting the Stone Forest, but there is nothing else nearby, so visitors are dependent on the services at the hotel. The breakfast is very Asian, with only a few western breakfast items available. The worst part of the breakfast is the coffee. The only “coffee” available is a terrible sweet liquid with coffee, milk and sugar mixed together. No black coffee available. You would think that decent coffee would be the bare minimum requirement for offering breakfast at an international, or even Chinese, hotel. All this said, the room was actually by far the best part of this hotel. It was spacious, quiet and comfortable. Even the bed was relatively good by Chinese standards. You can get a good night’s sleep here, but don’t expect a good breakfast or great service.

Stayed a night here, we had a triple room which was still spacious after they placed the third bed in. The bathroom was big as well with a walk in shower and a bath tub and plenty room for us to move around. The room is clean and completed with all necessary amenities like toothbrush, comb, shower foam and shampoo (even though I don't need). The breakfast served at the western restaurant is nothing close to western cuisine as expected by the folks. They served traditional Chinese breakfast which includes rice, noodles, bun, congee, stir fry dishes. Overall, it's a spacious and comfy stay, it's also nearby stone forest.
