The exterior of the hotel does not do justice for the interior.. hotel rooms were nicely design and mainly for the comfort for their guests. Beds were comfy, nice shower and has a heater which is important since the weather has been really harsh these days.. provides bedroom slippers of pretty good quality.. shower has hot water instantly... it wld be great if the bathroom is heated as well.. wifi is available in room if you get a router for them.. router rental is free but will need to place a 200 yuan deposit that will be returned upon checkout.. there is a 24 hr macdonalds just opp the hotel though it will not be easy to cross the road definitely..

We (myself & my wife) visited Kunming, China in the month of September 2013 and I am pleased to say that our experience in Long Way Hotel was really excellent. A very good four star property,
behavior of the staff members were good, especially the Assistant Manager Mr Su Yong Gang requires special mention. Double bed room and toilet was nice. Buffet breakfast was superb. So many varieties were there. Above all everything was moderately priced. The location of the Hotel is good, the market place is just behind to it and only a few minutes walk. Considering every aspects, Long Way Hotel, Kunming, China deserves strong recommendation.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2013.

Room: Looks new, clean & modern.
The bed is comfortable. The air-conditioner works well and fast. The water pressure & heater works great.

Breakfast: Good spread of both Western & Chinese-style breakfast. Very good pastry & great coffee (which I find is very rare in China hotels).

Overall, I am happy and had a comfortable stay.

This hotel was arranged for us by our tour operator. We were told the Kunming Longway was four star, but in our opinion it is closer to 3 star. We stayed there on 2 occasions in June 2013, the first for 2 nights, the second for 1 night. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city with no tourist attractions within close proximity unless you want to visit the Exhibition Centre or the WallMart store. The room was small, basic but clean, however the staff on duty on both occasions we stayed there had an extremely poor understanding of English. The restaurant caters mainly for Asians, and although they advertise that they provide western style food, this was basic (hamburgers, fruit pizza or chips/fries) and bland in taste. Room service was poor, we telephoned on a number of times for ice cubes for our drinks and staff hung up on us. Would certainly not stay there again.

Room Tip: If you stay at the Kunming Longway make sure you room is not at the back towards the back of the hot...

Travelling independantly and arriving late in the evening we booked this hotel because of the airport pick-up service. In fact a person from the hotel picked us up from the airport exit but we had to walk almost 1 km with luggage to get to the car as the transportation was not handled by a professional driver or hotel car as expected but by a private car which had been arranged by the hotel clerk. It took about 40 minutes drive to arrive at the hotel together with two bus loads of Chinese group tourists which made check in a fight for a little space in the chaotic crowd at the front desk. The room was spacious, clean and furbished in a modern design. The hotel is located directly at a very big road and an huge area under construction it was too noisy for a rest as the windows did not close properly. After some serious complaints and under pressure the hotel reluctantly offered another room, with small window on the backside of the building with view to a messy parking lot. In contrast to all other employees of the hotel we had contact with was the staff in the restaurant friendly, polite and helpful. The food they offer for dinner is good, we ordered the Thai style hot pot. Because of the location of the hotel it is very difficult to get a taxi, so we asked the front desk to provide transportation to the airport. They offered of private ("black") taxi for a ridiculous overpriced rate of 150,- rmb and finally after some aggressive negotiation we could convince another regular taxi, having dropped just another guest at the hotel, to take us to the airport for 100,- rmb without meter, also a rip off in view of the regular price of abt. 60,- for that distance. Obviously this is common practice and mutual understanding with this hotel and the local taxi company to make best use of guests as victims trapped in the unfavorable location of this hotel .

I stayed overnight between flights from Kunming Airport. It is about a 40 minute drive but I found it well worth it. It is modern, spacious, spotlessly clean and stylish. I had a king double room on the fourth floor which was fairly large with an enormous comfortable bed, crisp cotton sheets and a quality feather/down duvet and pillows. I loved the glass shower partition between the shower and the bedroom making the shower seem very light and spacious, again everything spotless, new and and shiny. I slept incredibly well, it was quiet and a perfect temperature. There was a nice touch of a cockerel crowing in the morning, (not too early) in the middle if the city!
The restaurant was good with a very large selection of beautifully displayed very fresh salads and buffet food and the menu was more than adequate with good service.
My only slight criticism was their lack of the command of the English language, although their willingness, courtesy and helpfulness made up for it in strength. All the staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet, spacious king room on the fourth floor

We stayed at this hotel primarily because of reviews about its proximity to the airport. That airport CLOSED in June 2012 and this hotel is 45 minutes (and 75 RMB taxi ride) from the new and only airport in Kunming. The lobby staff spoke only Chinese. However, some of the management staff speak English and went out of their way to be helpful. One of them even followed us into the hotel restaurant to make sure that we could order.

Breakfast is an extensive buffet of both Western and Chinese food with cook to order eggs and/or noodle soup.
Rooms were small, but clean. We paid extra for,the executive level which is on the floor of the business center. It offers free computers for your use and tea, coffee,fruit and pastry in the afternoon. None of the business center staff spoke English and the only English language newspaper was nearly a week old.

The staff arranged for a driver to take us to the Stone Forest and wait for us. It cost 800 RMB in a new minivan and took an hour and 15 minutes to drive there. Allow about 3 hours for the actual time at the forest. If you are over 60 you get a discount ticket but you need a passport to prove it.

There is a flower and commodities market right across the street from the hotel, behind the police station, which was very interesting.

We probably would not stay here again because it isn't convenient to downtown Kunming or to the airport.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a non smoking room if this is an issue for you. On the executive level, the even...
