“Almost a 4 star hotel”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

Hotel is conveniently located near the ring road for transport to East Bus terminal ( bus 197) and the new airport. Several restaurants and shops around the hotel. Hotel facilties are not up to a 4 star rating, no WiFi except in a remote corner of the huge lobby. Rooms are large and clean and a non-smoking room has no smell ( exceptional in China). The beds are hard , the hardest we had in China. Breakfast is purely Chinese, but you can find some items to fill you stomach. Overall the hotel is good value for money and I would stay there again.

Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

The hotel is situated in the first ring road, and it is quite convenient for taxi/bus/airport transport. Around it you will find plenty shops and restaurants.

Hotel's facilities are average as you would expect from 4 star hotel.

The breakfast buffet is poor. Food quality is bad for both Chinese and western food.

Above aside, one thing it really lacks is its service. Staff members seem not interested in what you after in general, in stead they push sell additional service such limo services etc.

The hotel is okay for a short stay in kunming and you speak Chinese. But don't expect more from it.

Not worth the 4 stars IMO .

Reviewed 11 June 2013

I've been here for 3 nights for a Conference.
I didn't expect a lot, but a Telecom International Hotel with no wifi and no personnel speaking english is a bit a non-sense.
It's a typical chinese 4s hotel, i.e. apparently everything is there fo being a 4s, but 2s is generous.
I asked to change my room since also cable internet was not working. So, repack everything, new room with internet, working at stop and go, actually not working. I had to use my 3G telephone as a bridge.
No wifi. Only a remote corner in the lobby has wifi. You have to go there and stay in that corner for having a decent signal.
Restaurant very chinese, average.
Personnel cannot speak english, very disorganized, you can spend aboput half an hour for checking in, same for checking out.
There are better hotels in Kunming. Not recommended

Not a good choice as a host hotel for an international conference. Lobby area doesn't have adequate space for informal gatherings. Room decor a bit on the old side. Non-smoking rooms are furnished with ashtrays and matches. Lack of English speaking hotel staff is not ordinarily an issue, but for an international conference, it made things more difficult. Room rate was cheap, though. You get what you pay for...
