For the price they charge, the hotel is a very good option, especially compared to the Sakura just across the road which has deteriorated drastically over the last couple of years. The room was clean and the towels were new. There are a variety of restaurants and surprisingly, the western food was quite good in the first floor restaurant. The hotel rooms are quiet and away from the traffic and in spite of being an old hotel, it is quite well maintained. Avoid using the hotel transport to the airport for which they charge eight times the average taxi. I wouldn't mind if it was a luxury car but the car that came for the price was a very old car with a bad suspension. Note that public taxis are not available at around 5 till 6 in the evening as that is the time when their shift changes so it is easier to use the bus system which is not too bad if you get an air conditioned service. Subway works outside the hotel on the main road means that you can expect traffic jams during peak hours. Service is an issue and the staff sometimes appear bureaucratic and unfriendly. But on the other hand, the waiters in the restaurant were brilliant.

Comfortable, with a range of eateries, clean rooms and reasonable service - and only 10-15 minutes from the airport. What's not to like about this hotel?
OK, it looks like it comes from an era when customer service was not a high priority - and some of the staff may still adhere to that old ethos - but generally this hotel is fine, at least for a few nights. The rooms are large, clean and have quite comprehensive lighting controls. Whether this is a feature in Yunnan (it appears to be!), but the beds in the hotel are remarkably hard. Not quite like sleeping on a board - but not far off. That said, sleep came quite easily! There is a decent range of in-room tea-making options: green. black and jasmine tea-bags.
The buffet breakfast was very comprehensive - with something for all tastes, Western and Chinese. We also had the buffet dinner one night. This was okay, but it proved impossible to actually get someone to serve us a beer to go with it! Another night we ate at the Korean restaurant (next door, but part of the hotel's wide range of eating options). The food was excellent - and very reasonably priced (as was the beer!). A pictorial menu, with English as well as Chinese descriptions, helped enormously.

All in all, this is a perfectly decent hotel, offering everything you are likely to need at a reasonable price.

Room tip: As with many hotels in China "non-smoking room" seems to be more of a suggestion than a demand. We had no issues in this regard - but you might.

I stayed for one night only. The hotel is convenient for the airport and appeared to be doing a good trade in weddings when we arrived. The rooms were of a reasonable size, and fairly clean, the beds though were very firm as indeed were the pillows, We had to leave early the following morning, but a well prepared breakfast was made available - perhaps one of the better ones we experienced in the next two weeks

I am really surprised to read so many negative reviews of this hotel. It may be that the hotel has moved in the past few years as the original 1950s style Kunming Hotel is now the Thai Embassy next door. This would easily be a 4 star western standard hotel and at about 350RMB for a fantastic room it is great value. Spotlessly clean and 10-15 mins walk to downtown its well positioned. Many staff speak english which is great.
The two downfalls were both in the Tour office:
1. We went to visit the tour office at 8.00PM as its open 8.00AM -9.00PM but it was closed one hour early, the next morning we turned up at 8.00AM to book our tour to the stone forest to be told the tour left at 7.30 being 1/2 hour before they opened.
2. We wanted to experience the 8 hour train ride to Lijiang and were quoted 1050 RMB each which sounded expensive. I asked for a second person who spoke better english to confirm. She came in and said 1050 for a seat or 1850 for a sleeper. We went to the train station and bought exactly the same class of seat for 90RMB each. This is a blatant rip off.

Arriving late on my final nite in China after 3 rough weeks of travel, I wanted a shower that didn't flood the bathroom, cold beer and a warm bed. I got all the above and a pretty good breakfast in the am, as well. The hotel is obviously geared for Chinese business travelers, so a gringo felt a bit alien (English was a rare commodity). There was a convention of police at the time, which did add a sense of security ;-)
