Silver Chest boutique hotel is located in downtown Kunming. It's belong to one part of the only remaining old street in the city. It's not only the best but also the only boutique hotel in Kunming with amazing location. You can walk into one of the most attractive place to visit in town called birds and flower market in 3 minutes. The biggest shopping district in Kunming is 5 minutes away by foot. You can also walk to Green Lake Park in 20 minutes from here. Kunming International Airport is also only 40 minutes away by car. The building of the hotel was built in 1924. The building itself is a piece of art. The combination of local Yunnan Bai minority courtyards and the influence from the western architect in early 1900s made it the most unique architect left in the city. The street where this building located on was used to be called "small silver chest alley", that's why we named it "silver chest" today. The hotel is fully furnished with old Shanghai antiques furniture and well designed to meet the demand of modern life requirements. You can still enjoy the luxury 5 star experience in an old style building in downtown Kunming.

The hotel is conveniently located along a pedestrian street. Get the hotel to provide specific directions as it can easily be missed. Feels like stepping into the past once you enter the premise. Full of old world charm and character. Very peaceful and quiet among the hustle and bustle. Manage expectations with regard to cleanliness. The staff do their best but the building is old. Ok for a one night stay.

The wooden door, the golden lock, the library ... the staircases to our room.. all with history! all look amazing! Locating at the centre of the prosperous area, u won't feel creepy staying at this over hundred years' hotel. Yes,there's only a ceiling fan in each room, no air condition provided , but we didn't feel any hotness at all, maybe because of its ancient and smart architecture structure? Combining with its stylish interior design and up to date equipment, make our stay quite convenience and comfortable.

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.
