As has already been said in other reviews, the AC is central and is turned off, though the weather is still warm. Yes I'm American, so I tend to run hot. It's 25 or so outside, but much warmer in the fifth floor. Opened the windows at night which had a thoughtful magnetic screen and sleeping was pleasant. But, the...

The Expo Garden would be rated 4 stars except for one issue, that is prevalent in China. Lack of English speaking staff... and when I say "English speaking", I'm especially concerned with comprehension or understanding what is said in English. Other than that, its a really clean and good hotel to stay while in Kunming. The famous Expo Garden is...

Better rooms than the rating and what I had expected. Breakfast too was ok, not enough to select from I'm teens of fresh fruit but what they had was good. Yunnan is the real gem of china, to see kunming, xushuangbanba and surrounding areas is amazing and essential for any tourist. The local people are very relaxed happy and friendly,...

We had a very bad experience with Yunnan Expo Garden Hotel in Kunming. We enjoyed our stay in March when the main building on Shibo Lu was closed for renovation, and we chose a Queen View room. We tried to check-in at the newly renovated hotel, but were informed (in Chinese) we had to go up the hill to same...

A lot of positives about the hotel, especially the buffet breakfasts and evening meals. Major downside is that manager refuses to switch on air-con until some upper temperature outside is reached leaving his guests sweating and unable to sleep at night. Check-outs take far too much time and risk missing flights so begin process as soon as you can. There...

The rooms are really nice, with a balcony overlooking a garden, they bring you a fresh plate of fruit and the bathroom is lovely. The restaurant serves an extensive buffet, but we did not sample it. The beds are hard, but comfortable.

The Expo gardens hotel is situated within 20 minutes of the airport; is close to Yuan Tong Temple and only 5 minutes walk from the entrance to the Expo Gardens. It is however quite a way from the centre of Kunming city. It is a curious place split over two sites; about five minutes walk apart, with an electric buggy...

We were firstly impressed by the position out of the town centre (which is a big building site), close to the Garden Expo- Not to be missed even if you don't garden. The indoor tennis courts, swimming pool and yes- 3 lane ten pin bowling alley - were all in first class order and woefully under-used when we were there,...
