Kunming Jin Jiang Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed 2 nights here on a 2 week trip to Southwest China and Tibet. This hotel was our least favorite of our trip. I don't have any positive comments about this hotel. Our check in took over an hour as they could not find our pre-paid reservation for a non-smoking room. We were given a smoking room - on and on and on with more negative experiences. If you have a choice, choose another hotel.

Tired but value for money This hotel is rated 4 stars and the lobby is fairly impressive with the biggest chandelier I have ever seen.Reception speaks no english so make sure u have everything pre printed in chinese. Room are well appointed and clean. bathroom is a bit dated with bathtub and scratches, small patches of peeled paint. but for the price US$50/night you cannot complain, it's similar standard to a US$150/night room in singapore or US$100/night room in Manila. Despite lack of english the staff try hard to please. Rooms on 9th floor have seriously bad air conditioning, with hardly any airflow. when we complained, the staff showed us 6 other rooms but all were as bad. so he brought us 2 fans and extra bottles of water as he saw we had 2 kids. It is very near the train station, many local restaurant and breakfast places within 5 minutes walk and RMB10 taxi ride from malls, Jade Lake etc. Taxi from airport around RMB80. the airport bus also stops at the hotel - Route 2B. I would stay here again if I am ever in Kunming again. Tip - the restaurant next door to the hotel is EXCELLENT

Stayed here twice during our China trip. Hotel is a bit outside of the city centre. I would recommend taking taxis to green lake area. Up on arrival we got an old dumpy style smelly room. We asked for non smoking but in that room clearly someone must have had some cigarettes before. At front office they wanted to simply spray the room but I insistent on a new room. Finally we got one near the rest of our family whitch was much nicer. (At first we were told nothing nearby would be available) When returning to the hotel they gave me a room which wasn't made up yet. Breakfast is very Chinese and the "revolving restaurant" wasn't moving at all. They do have a small gym on the ground floor witch is good for a little work out. Make sure to get a room on the lower floors as they seemed to be renovated (12th floor was fine, 18th really bad). Personally I would pick a hotel closer to the centre where there is mire life next time.

Hotel located in the center town and easy to go everywhere. Staff are friendly and helpful The room is smell of smoking, even we have stayed at the nonsmoking room. The price is a bit high for what we have.

This was the last hotel on our Chinese holiday and it was one of the best. We had a lovely room and the bed was the softest one that we had (out of 8 hotels). Therefore great nights sleep. The air conditioning worked, but was very slow to drop the temperature in the room and the breakfast in the revolving restaurant (which was not revolving) on the 23 floor was good. The hotel had a bar and it was the only hotel in China where BBC World News was available on the TV (instead of CCN or the Chinese equivalent). We went out for a walk and went in 3 different directions from the hotel and didn't have much luck in finding any shops worth going into.

The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was well appointed. Both room and bathroom were far too dimly lit.The 2nd floor Yunnan Restauarant was as good or as bad as anywhere else. There are shops around but frankly China City life is not for me - I came for the sights and the culture.

Stayed in April in 2 separate rooms on level 11 and 12 in Tower A. Hotel was ok. The bathroom was quite old with shower over bathtub and a shower curtain. The carpets were a little old and marked. Pillows were not the most comfortable. We were told the rooms we booked (executive rooms) were already all taken so we were upgraded to these rooms. Not sure what the condition of the other rooms were then?! There was centrally controlled air conditioner in the room and it was very warm around 23 deg and we could not make it cooler! We paid for the hotel buffet breakfast for one of the mornings 50 cny pp. It was ok and view was nice from the 23rd floor but as some people mentioned, it was not revolving. It is about 30 min drive to the airport. There is a night time hawker food lane to the left of the hotel and some small restaurants. On one day, we booked a private driver to take us to Shilin Stone Forest and Jiuxiang Caves which is about 2 hours drive away. On the next day, we decided to go to Dayuan Park. The young man (concierge) at the hotel entrance was very helpful. He advised us to take the taxi instead of the bus to Dayuan Park (after checking on his phone) and even went out to the street to help us hail 2 taxis. Best customer service from this man out of all the dealings with the staff. Hotel price is good but maybe have a look around at other hotels if you prefer a more upmarket hotel.

The staff welcomed us with no greeting and had a frosty attitude. Then they demanded 200RMB for deposit but didn't tell us for what reason and just repeated "200 deposit" couple times. Only when we didn't want to pay without reason it was explained the deposit is for the room key. The staff speaks English good enough. When we asked to book a tour with the hotel's travel agent we got told that they don't deal for English speaking guests.

clean rooms, comfy beds, clean bathroom. Most of the staff dont understand much English but there are one or 2 who can speak basic english. abt 5-10 mins walk to tthe train station, lots of restaurants near the hotel.

This large typical Chinese hotel offers good value for most things you need for the hotel - clean room and bath, shops, ok breakfast. However some rooms have strong smoke smell even it is a non smoking room. But its location is good just 5 mins walk to train station and major shopping area and night food bbq stalls.
