Yijing Garden Resort & Spa Hotel
Ranked #101 of 1,222 Hotels in Kunming
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The Yijing Garden was a perfect hotel for us to stay at during our time in Kunming. Very relaxing, pretty grounds and setting. It featured an exquisite spa that pampered us (although a little pricey) and the staff went out of their way to be helpful, despite my language difficulties with Mandarin.
Conveniently located just outside of the city and only about 35 minutes from the airport. I just wish I had more time to relax on the grounds and in beautiful Kunming!

Stayed here for a conference. Location is in the Dianchi Lake tourist area. This was my first visit to Kunming.

First, it helps to speak some Mandarin or have a really good translate app on your smartphone. Few people here speak English or other foreign languages.

Second, be prepared to pay bills in cash ( this goes for restaurants too) as credit cards are a new experience.

The hotel is in a nice location about a 10-15 minute walk to the closest point of Dianchi lake. There's a larger park about a 45 minute walk away, or a short bike ride.

Hotel staff are very friendly and service oriented. One saw that I had left a pair of my hiking socks in the sink to soak in soapy water, she was cleaning the room when I returned from a meal, and she refused to let me rinse them out. She did them herself. So that was a nice treat.

The rooms are large and have two levels. My quibble is that it'd be great of windows opened above the bed to permit flow through ventilation. It's warm but not hot in Kunming, but always seems to have a breeze. But since windows ironed only on one end, I had to run the a/c to keep the room comfortable.

Breakfast is a typical Chinese breakfast, but you can get an omelette if you ask.

Internet is via Ethernet and is the usual highly variable quality and speed. This is not the hotels fault. For example it took 20 minutes to load a page from the new York times in the Foxconn riot today. And then I only got the headline. Fortunately my al jazeera app in my smart phone had the full article. Seasoned travelers expect this weirdness and plan accordingly, but new visitors will think something is wrong with the hotels Internet and this is not the case.
