This hotel is tidy and has most of what you want for a hotel. If they put you in B wing ask for and odd-numbered room - away from the restaurant as it can remain quite noisy until late at night. OK I was there during World Cup and it was on the large screen, but best to try the side away from the main area. Breakfast was included and had lots of variety. Reasonably prices at under US$75
EXPO GARDEN is not a bad hotel but its not a great hotel. The breakfast is free or added not sure, but its a bit expensive if you pay for it. Dinner is something like 140 rmb and it certainly a good dinner but not if your going to stay there a long time. It would be well worth it if you ventured down the hill into the little shopping area to find alternative options. The hotel has good tv.. with a few English channels including HBO Asia. The one thing I didn't like is the unenforced rules about smoking in designated areas..the rules are there but they (the people) either ignore the rules and/or they are not enforced especially in the elevators. The hotel does not have a lot of amenities.. and for that its not a good place for children. Staff and service is okay.. and the doors and hallways are not sound proof.. otherwise you can hear the drunk guy or guy on mobile walking down the hallway.. …
In Kunming for business, I had my booking made by our company. If the rooms are well designed, and the bed quite comfortable, I have to say this is not a hotel I shall visit again in the futur. It's almost impossible to find some staff member who could speak at least a little english. During my stay, the outside temperature was quite low. And it was very cold everywhere in the hotel. Impossible to get a decent temperature in my room. The lobby is huge... but empty, no seat, nothing to make you feel welcomed. I had requested a non smoking room during the check-in and I got a room with bed sheets perfumed with cigarettes...
As has already been said in other reviews, the AC is central and is turned off, though the weather is still warm. Yes I'm American, so I tend to run hot. It's 25 or so outside, but much warmer in the fifth floor. Opened the windows at night which had a thoughtful magnetic screen and sleeping was pleasant. But, the rooms are pretty warm. Apart from that, the rooms are very nice and comfortable. The bathroom is open marble and glass with many amenities available. Only one English tv channel. The breakfast was expansive, but don't look for any western items, really. The cook to order Yunan noodle station was delicious! All in all is stay here again. Good value. I'd just look for a cooler season for my stay.
The Expo Garden would be rated 4 stars except for one issue, that is prevalent in China. Lack of English speaking staff... and when I say "English speaking", I'm especially concerned with comprehension or understanding what is said in English. Other than that, its a really clean and good hotel to stay while in Kunming. The famous Expo Garden is right across the hotel and the Exercise facilities are great. Staff is very polite and many use translation apps on their phones so its good to have one also so you can converse.. Enjoy...
