My family stayed at the IC Kunming for just one night during April 2019 and it was an absolutely terrific stay. I had already completed the IC post-stay review, but feel obliged to complete another review on TripAdvisor to share my positive experience. Firstly, huge thank you to Bobbi Zhang for the excellent reservation process and recognition of my Platinum Ambassador status. Coincidentally, Bobbi was also the one that checked us in to the hotel upon arrival, greeted us and provided lots of information at and around the resort. Special thanks to Smulin Li as well for providing guidance of attractions around Kunming. This was our first ever night in Yunnan so the detailed information was much appreciated. The hotel is beautiful, with a stunning lobby and a garden that you sit around or casually stroll across the bridge. It is located next to the Dianchi Lake, about 10-15min walk around the hotel. The Longmen on Xishan and Ethnic village are all nearby and we went to both of them on the same day. We stayed in the 190sqm Garden Suite which was modern, with a very large sofa and a very large spa bathtub. A children's bed was also nicely set up for my 8 year old girl. The only disappointment was that the pool or hot spring in the backyard had no water in it, apparently due to maintenance repairs. Our Garden Suite was very close to the Club Lounge situated on the south west side of the Resort. The Lounge was split into two sides, spacious and comfortable with a decent outdoor area as well. Both the Club Lounge and Breakfast restaurant offered a wide range of delicious food and snacks. At night, we enjoyed the free drink vouchers in the lobby lounge, whilst listening to a live band. The singers looked like they were from the middle east, but had a good voice and created a lovely atmosphere for guests. Our first ever stay in Yunnan at the IC was a terrific experience and I hope we can come again to stay for longer next time. Sijia

What a terrible stay here never be back for a Sprie Ambassador. Far away from this hotel. So terrible service Ketty Zhang from the front desk and Chris Xu on duty. Should avoid this two guys! No good experience at all. Should stay at the Hualuxe and crowne plaza, which have a great stay there, not this ic! Or stay at the Sofitel also much better than this intercontinental. What a shame for that!

I stayed there just one night for the 2019 SCO Kunming International Marathon. This is the best location for any races I participated in before! The start/finish line was right at the back of the hotel. It took me literally 8min to get there from my room! Apart from the marathon, the location is also very convenient for other Kunming’s attractions. The hotel is very good. The staff are very professional and helpful. The only problem is a heavy traffic around the hotel. So, allow yourselves a lot of time for getting there from the airport!

It is Located on Dianchi Lake and away from the centre of Kunming. Huge Hotel, with appropriate service, and Plenty of space in the Lobby. The GArden is Great, and on the Clear Night , you can see the stars.

Beautiful hotel whether on business or vacation. Incredibly large and if walking long distances is an issue, ask for a room closer to the front desk. The restaurant staff should be more attentive. The lounge was quiet and not crowded. Despite a nonsmoking policy, inconsiderate guests smoke in the hotel.
