Recent guest reviews

Sofitel Hotel in Kunming is truly a 5 starts hotel. It is quite new and everywhere you see so much detailing is done in the décor and finishing. It is a lovely hotel. A great hotel to stay in. The lobby is fascinating. Very beautifully designed and very welcoming. The hotel is very well managed and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast spread is insane. So much to eat and at 49th level, the view is also captivating. I walked around 2 to 3 times to look at all the food provided. It was very difficult to choose what to eat as there are so many good choices. I wish I was 5 kilos lighter so I can eat more. The bedroom is well designed. Very cheerful and modern. The only let down is the bed. It is simply too soft. We stayed for 3 nights and did not sleep well for even one night. Please provide harder mattresses.

It’s no wonder that all reviews rave about the same things - spacious and luxurious rooms, great breakfast spread and excellent service. But what deserves a bigger shoutout is the lovely Club Millesime. The spread is lovely during dinner, and the Manager Ilgiz is wonderful and attentive. We had a wonderful time here as a family, enjoying the view, the food, the drinks and the service. It’s definitely worth paying for a room with club access - you won’t regret it!

The rooms are spacious, clean and well furnished. The 360 degrees breakfast spread over an entire floor was exceptional with international and local cuisine. The staff are very helpful and served with courtesy and smiles. When I was looking around to admire the hotel, a managerial staff approached me and asked if she could be of help. I met Mr. Link Zhang, Front Office Manager at the elevator and he struck up a conversation to ask about my stay at the hotel. I asked if his hotel has been accorded 6 stars and he replied humbly that they do not grade their hotel by number of stars. I would grade this hotel as 6 stars or Diamond !

It is my favourite hotel during our trip to China. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable.The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Mr. Jack Wang and Mr. Idris. Coupled with the nice view, Sofitel Kunming would definitely be my top accommodation choice should I decide to visit Kunming again in the future.

Excellent customer service during our check-in, especially for the Accor member. A thumbs up specially to the front desk supervisor, Ms. Vitamin Li 李霞. However, we have been given a wrong information by others at the front desk on the requirements for the swimming cap for the swimming pool. A great variety of choice for the breakfast, which is our first encounter with so many type of breakfast among our experiences with other 5-star hotel. Overall, it is a very good experience for our family stay in Sofitel Kunming.

This modern hotel in the beautiful garden city KUNMING make our 7 days trip in YUNAN finished in a relaxing way. Their concierge services are excellent! They always provided right suggestions for dinner, walking area or shopping district in a very nice attitude.

Let’s make it short. Wonderful, excellent, fabulous!!! Very nice, polite and helpful staff. I’ve got a business card of one of the girls from the reception, she was ready to help me to print some necessary documents with smile, even though it was late night. Her name is Vitamin Li. You will not be disappointed. Christian, Czech Republic

I’m from Malaysia. During my stay in this hotel, their staff Mr Elvis 冯俊舒 has assisted me to purchase railway ticket from Kunming to Changsha, this indeed reduce my troubles, truly appreciate his efforts and excellent service. At the same time, I’m impressed by the hotel breakfast and amenities, one of the best I have experienced!

I spent 3 nights in Sofitel Kunming with a very good experience. The staff is very friendly and Professional. The hotel is well situated in the center of the city and closed to several shopping malls. The rooms are large, very comfortable and the view is amazing. The breakfast was excellent. A special thanks to Izgil and Caroline for their kind attention and advices.

Five days and four nights of wonderful time in Sofitel Kunming. The staff were mostly friendly and warm, which was a big relief, as we had not been to Kunming for some years. Most outstanding was GRM Ilgiz, who devoted a great deal of time and attention on us, happily and willingly helping us plan sightseeing tours and entertainment programmes. Room Division Manager Tina Xiong was equally helpful, if not more, extending every courtesy to us, to make us feel comfortable and at home. Food-wise, there is no lack in Sofitel Kunming. We enjoyed each one of its three top-rating restaurants - Le Chinois on 2nd floor, Kwee Zeen on 49th floor and the LAN Restaurants right at the very top 50th floor. Excellent food and tip-top service attention; praise-worthy. Sofitel Kunming is truly a gem for business and leisure travellers. Its central location in the heart of the throbbing city is a boon, providing easy access all directions. Fifty storeys high, it stands out prominently in the sky, affording a good view all around. We enjoyed our stay this trip, and would not hesitate to recommend this eminent Sofitel to all who needs a good and safe place to stay in Kunming.
