Lost Garden is the perfect place for a little getaway. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and the service is exceptional. The location is a short stroll from many of Kunming’s sites, bars and restaurants. The rooftop terrace is the best spot to while away the hours for brunch, lunch or dinner over a few cocktails or wines. Even when the weather isn’t so good the rooftop is a lovely place to spend your time.

We actually returned to this Guest house as we finished our tour of Yunnan because we felt we could not do better in terms of location, comfort and most importantly food. I was delighted to see a vegetarian burger option with lots of vegan choices on the menu, a good wine menu and for breakfast, delicious homemade muesli with seasonal fruit and Yunnan coffee which is just perfect! There are lots of lovely green terraces to have tea and relax, the fabulous Green Lake Park is just across the road and the owners are exceptionally warm, friendly and welcoming. It's budget accomodation with everything you could possibly want!

although the room is quite small, it is very cozy for a reasonable price. also the location is great; only minutes of walking to the green lake park, the most pleasant place in the city, especially early morning or late afternoon.

After spending more than two weeks on a fancy package tour throughout China with its high end hotels emphasizing comfort and luxury, it was a bit of a disappointment coming back down to the "budget" end of the accommodation spectrum for our final stop in Kunming. However, I must say that this modest hotel more than makes up for its "basic" room environment with spectacularly great service from its attentive and most helpful staff. The fluent English speaking management (not always found even at the high-end hotels) went out of their way to provide a variety of services that enhanced our stay in Kunming - arranging an airport pick-up at 1 am, briefing us in detail on many Kunming sites, transport options, local eateries, etc., doing our laundry at a very reasonable cost, even accompanying us to a nearby restaurant to provide translation services to help us order an excellent meal. In addition, we learned more about real "life" in China from our discussions with staff members here than we gleaned during the extensive time spent on the package tour for the prior 16 days. And the room, while a bit dark and cramped, turned out to be quite comfortable - it must be added that the hotel is undergoing some renovation in an adjoining building, so that may have contributed to our initial negative impression. And it's location, while hidden away on a back alley, is actually in the heart of the city near the amazingly beautiful Green Park. And there is an old fashioned 5-star hotel right around the corner for those who need to get their fix of luxury (just by walking through it of course).

Here is my review on Lost Garden Guesthouse: - This guesthouse earn a very high review and I should give thumb up to the guesthouse as well. The room is nice and clean and the shared bathroom is clean and nice too. But the only downside is the location deep inside the alley and it is quite difficult to find during the night. Hotel Environment: Guesthouse is located deep inside the alley and it is no way to locate from the main street. Train station is quite far away but can be reach within walking distance around 20 minutes toward the south to Wuyi Road train station. There are some local cuisine restaurants along the Green Lake road within 10 minutes walking distance. Location can bring down the reviews but looking at the guesthouse I don’t mind the walk. There are 2 attractions near the guesthouse which can be consider for those have extra additional time e.g. Green Lake Garden and Yuantong Buddhist temple. Hotel Service & Staff: Staff is great and all of them speak good English. There are only breakfast served and there are no lunch or dinner which is another downside of the guesthouse. I reach the guesthouse around 11pm+ and the staff waited me for the check in. Room comfort: Room and shared toilet is clean and nice. The stay is perfect at Kunming.
