This exquisite property is perfectly located in Kunming’s ancient city, literally steps from numerous restaurants and shops. We loved the movie set-like hotel atmosphere and wished we could have stayed more than two nights. (BTW, if you’re looking for closets or commodious drawers, you won’t find them here.)

There’s one huge deficit, though, brace yourself: Our room did *not* have a private toilet. The toilet was prominently placed in full view of most of our sizable room. Our friends in other rooms had varying degrees of toilet privacy. Not fun.

The Silver Chest is located in the ancient town part of Kunming. Very well located for dining, shopping, having a drink.
Here again: super helpful and friendly staff.
The hotel itself it quite impressive inside: it is an ancient property ('house' would be too minimalistic) that has been quite well preserved. There is a superb library.
The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Bathroom is very well equipped. All amenities present.
There are two terraces with sofas to relax.
No airco though, as the building is too ancient, but there are fans on the ceiling.

Great place, preserved architecture and refined ambiance. Rooms confortable and elegant. Friendly staff. I strongly recommend this place. One of the loveliest I've seen in Yunnan. Located in the very center of old town.

Friendly staff but hotel facility is very disappointing, Unless for those really want a worn out reminiscent old house type. The reply from hotel staff for my questions of why those peeling paints at building facade, why Guest has to walk through pouring rain without a shelter after checking in (of course hotel staff saved me with an umbrella but still got wet), why there is no aircon so that we smell mold in room ...is that “ this is a hundred year old building and we have to preserve it!” Come on, using this idea, we supposed to see peeling paint at forbidden city in Beijing, or Louvre in Paris ? I do not think the owner has sense of how morden will meet history, at a facility for travelling Guys, not historian!

酒店员工友好,但装修很失望!外墙油漆脱落,没有空调,房间很小,地毯霉味儿,下雨去前台要打伞……内饰毫无创意,墙上几张花鸟画,铝合金的推拉窗尽显敷衍的设计(如果还算有设计师), 房间设备没有方便之感……自称百年文物(一百年的房子对中国好像也不算什么), 但既然做酒店,还叫自己精品,价钱超五星的昆明其他酒店,就应该有尽心的设计,融合现代。把自己当文物就别改酒店,况且北京故宫的大门难道也别刷漆了?

您好,感谢您入住我们酒店。很遗憾给您的旅途带来了不便。酒店是六合同春的三进院的大宅,也是云南省唯一的一栋六合同春的院子,所以是文物保护单位。酒店经过了几百次的反复修葺之后才呈现了百年前的风貌,外墙的油漆已刷过,但是也是要显示以前的风格和年代的变迁。如果这样的保护让您觉得不够现代,那么我们深感抱歉。酒店是木质结构的房子,故不允许使用空调。但是房间内装有德国电机的超静音风扇,比空调的效果更好,冬天每间房也都准备了取暖设备。房间内及公区内的匾额和字画都是出自名家之手或是乾隆笔墨,或者古董。房间的工笔画也是很昂贵的艺术品。当然,可能这些对于您都不屑一顾。酒店也会在努力提升酒店的品味,让所有游客都能满意而归。

1, the hotel has no air conditioning. It was warm when we were there, about 80F degrees. We experienced the same problem as a previous reviewer. It was difficult to sleep because our room was too warm and there was no way to ventilate it.
2. We had a king room and it was very cramped. There was no closet. There were no drawers.
3. While we were there, most of the time no one on the staff spoke English. Part of the time, one staff member spoke limited English.
4. While the hotel is atmospheric, due to the downsides I would not recommend it.

Room tip: Avoid upstairs rooms due to no air conditioning
