"That was a heavy raining day in Kunming so I decided to stay at the Hostel~ The room is comfy and clean although there s a slightly smelly as my room is closed to the garage outside~ I guess it only happens to Room 105~so I jus closed the window and its fine~ and most of the time I spent on reading book at the Western style Cafe~the atmostphere with the soft music there s welcoming and comfy~I also had my dinner and breakfast there~ abit higher than the average price in towns in China~ however they can handle western cusion well and there had vegiterian choices~which s surprisingly good!"

"This boutique hotel is only a 25-minute drive from Kunming Airport. Together with highway tax, the cab fare is almost 100 RMB. We alighted in front of a big signage with the hotel's name. However, the building next to the signage is not the hotel. We walked about 8m to behind of this building and found ourselves in front of a neat glassy building similar to the one in front. We were allowed to check in at around 11.00 am. The male staff was helpful, English speaking and gave us a good advice to take breakfast at the hotel cafeteria. The breakfast was just 100 RMB for two. It was nice of him to give us this advice as it turned out to be our right choice. The breakfast spread was not wide but it was substantial for us and the food was nice and of good quality and standard. The room was neat and clean, and with a big toilet. The hotel is near many eateries and once out of hotel, after a short walk we were in front of a new mall, Joy City, that have familiar stores like The Alley, Adidas. "

"When arriving at the hotel at 5 AM because of a late flight we where told, there was no booking. The Agoda Voucher did not mean anything to the receptionist. It took two hours of discussions to be checked in. Contacting Agoda for help was quite impossible. At check out two days later we had another hour of quarrelling before the reception contacted Agoda for the first time and found out, there was a problem with the hotels booking system."

"We don't normally stay in backpackers but we actually stayed here on numerous occasions during our travels in and around Kunming. Michelle in reception was extremely helpful! She wrote down destinations for us in chinese which proved to be invaluable! The room was fine, with most things you need. There is a great bar/lounge area on the 3rd Floor which is also where all the rooms are. The only criticism I have is that the bar staff can be quite rude and tried to move us from a table we'd been sitting at and drinking at I might add because some more important chinese came in and wanted our table!!! Then they tried to overcharge us and got very rude and pushy until 1 of the girls explained that 2 of the drinks were free!! Thank you to her. It probably didn't help that none of them spoke very much English, don't get me wrong I know I'm in China but someone in the bar area needs to have a better grasp of English!!! And need to learn about customer service!! Besides that we would stay a"

"This is one of the best boutique hotel we have stayed in China so far. The location is near to MRT station, tourist spots, shopping and eatery. The staff is cheerful and helpful. Although the too is without air-con due to their local authority restriction, it is still cooling. Although we stayed on Lev 2, facing the road, it is still quite after closing the windows. We fully recommend this boutique hotel to all travelers looking for a affordable stay. "
