Beds were comfortable. Pillow a little too soft to my liking. Room was clean except for the toilet which was a little mouldy. A very short walk from the carpark of the hotel to the nearby night market. A pharmacy also located next to the hotel. However, the hotel is located near a rubbish collection area. Strong odors could be smelt along the corridors as well as its restaurant where we had our meals at level 7. Something to consider before you book your stay for a long trip.
The room is great, there is free wifi and the hotel decorations are well done. The room feels a little small, especially when an extra bed is added to accommodate three. The shower feels a little dark, and lighting is an area I feel needs improvement. Service here is also extraordinary and the staff are very helpful. Overall, good trip.
Generally, it was a decent hotel. It delivered reasonably good rooms ( i had a single occupancy room) and nothing went horribly wrong. The showers worked. The wi-fi worked. The bed was not bad. Just that we had a tight itinerary and that did not allow me to enjoy the room more. So it mostly was functional. The eatery downstairs was alright and put out a decent spread that appealed much to Chinese appetites..so to those not accustomed to that kind of gastronomy, it was nothing to really shout about but this is a Chinese city that does not have the pedigree as the major ones, Long Way Grand Hotel ticked off all the boxes for me. Will give credit where credit is due. The staff had the right attitudes and delivered the necessary service required of them. A nice little detour from the hotel was the night market within walking distance. Although it was pissy rainy on the final night of our stay, we managed - with our umbrellas and coats - to visit. Verdict? It would have been a better and livelier market sans the rain. But it was business as usual for many vendors and it was just another working night in Kunming, undeterred by the inclement weather.…
One has to remember, you are in a 3rd or 4th tier Chinese city, so their standard often doesn't meet your expectation. When we checked in, only smoking rooms are available, we had to take it. We were told (by agent) double rooms have 2 large beds that could accommodate 2 people per bed. No, they are twin beds and no extra space for a roll away. We had to get additional room for the 2 kids. Toilet doesn't have enough pressure to flush properly and the faucet at the sink only drips. I was totally amused that the bath towels had large see-through holes...Breakfast was average, and the Yunnan restaurant was just OK. Service was unimpressive, very limited/ no English. Love the close proximity to the large night market, very interesting to see all kinds of food being served.
This hotel is also known as Long Way Kunming Hotel. We stayed 2 nights as it is quite near to the airport. Room was quite spacious. We didn't like the shower foam as it had a weird smell (individual preference only). Shower control wasn't easy to operate as it was either too hot or too cold. Breakfast was ok with fresh soya milk, pumpkin porridge and eggs station. No tea offered and only a Nescafé coffee machine. Check-out experience wasn't good as they just kept me waiting while attending to other guests. Overall it is still a good place for short stay.
