Remember to ask for rooms with cooler air conditioning facilities. The thermostat in my room was broken and keeping the room toasty at 29 degrees Celsius. Combine this with morning sun, i was literally roasting! Fortunately the morning duty manager gave me access to a different room, sadly the staff in the night didn't think it was necessary to change...

Given this hotel is run by an American conglomerate it's not unreasonable to expect a modicum of English to be spoken here, particularly at reception. But this is the major problem at the Howard Johnson hotel in New Kunming. There's little to see in this part of the city, it's a fair taxi ride to the old town but we...

I was on a group tour here in late May. The rooms and general ambience are appropriate for a mid level hotel, but as a coffee drinking tourist, I really struggled, as this place is coffee-less until 8:30, at which time you can buy coffee at a nearby McDonald's. Also, the breakfast buffet reminded me of my high school cafeteria,...

Maybe it's because they are new or maybe it's a management problem. Checking in, even at a non-peak time with an advance reservation was like re-inventing the wheel. Frantic running around, scratching through stacks of paper. Finally got it done. Room well furnished, but tiny. No in-room safe. At least I could open a window for fresh air. But outside...

This is a decent hotel - nothing fancy, but also nothing to complain about. Rooms a functional and clean, breakfast is ok, gym is large and well equipped. But be aware that this hotel is located in "New Kunming", which is a completely new city pretty much still in the making, there is absolutely nothing to see and to do...

What everyone said about the hotel's air-conditioning is true. It's useless calling room service as all they do is to come in and turn the thermostat to 16C. Spent 3 nights in April with warm and stale air. Fortunately, my wife was smart enough to insist in having a standing fan in the room. It was just bearable with the...

New and Grand Property but far away from the City. I have invited there with my family for dinner. Very large Buffet dinner and separate corner for Yunnan Specialty Rice noodles. Overall good place but far away from the city centre. Also, you can go to the Kunming's wholesale market (Losiwan LITC) from this hotel. If you are planing to...

This hotel is located in the outskirts of Kunming, about 45 minutes by car from the Kunming airport or 30 minutes from the city centre.

It is a good hotel hotel meets international standard although its location is about half an hour away from Kunming city centre. Room is spacious and comfortable. However, aircon is an issue but not sure if this is apolicy or norm for the hotels in Yunnan. Believe there is a pre-set room temperature which is very warm for visitor from...

Under the instruction of the GM to cut cost, aircon only effective a few hours a day, the room temperature constant at 27C-28C, you are unable to lower the temperature coz it's control from central.
