The best part is the location, the downtown is just a taxi ride away (wouldn't cost more than 15 rmb). The hotel offers a decent breakfast spread but it's available only after 7:15 am.The receptionists doesn't speak English
this is a great hotel for westerners in china. they nearly have it all right! reasonable prices and pretty safe. not the best views but a good place to stay for running round visiting the sites in kunming or as a business stay.
Typical chinese style hotel. Rooms are decent and spacious. Air-conditing which is centrally controlled. Bathroom has a bathtub and hot water supply is good. There is no shower curtain and the whole area is wet after bathing. Decent price at 208 yuan for a business room without breakfast. You need to pay extra 20 bucks for Chinese style food consisting of porridge and noodles. Hotel is situated away from main shopping area. Nothing much around the place. No restaurants nearby, so ended up eating breakfast at hotel. The only redeeming factor is that the airport bus stop is 200 metres away from the hotel, and you can purchase the bus ticket at 13 yuan from the hotel. I paid 94 yuan for a taxi from the airport at midnight, including toll charges. Not sure whether staff can speak English. Didn't test them out. …
The new address is "Huan Cheng Bei Road (east)". The new owner and stuff isn't professional but mostly friendly. Breakfast is very simple but ok, breakfast time should ends at 10am but stuffs starts removing buffet at 9:30.... in total the new hotel is a typical chinese 2 stars hotel, only the prize is above average. Nothing special, also missing the flair from the old one. Internet (Wifi) everywhere and for free, beds are very hard, hot water 24hours
furnitures in the room are dated and so is the elevator (one of the 2). We stayed at Block B which was supposely the new wing ? but yet still appears dated in general. Reception area is bright but the gallery leading to the elevators are dim and errie (due to most shop lots are closed and locked but no sign of renovation going on...). Nothing interesting to visit around the hotel area. Staff are not friendly and room is not completely kept clean. Definitely not my choice for my next visit.
