Great place, preserved architecture and refined ambiance. Rooms confortable and elegant. Friendly staff. I strongly recommend this place. One of the loveliest I've seen in Yunnan. Located in the very center of old town.

About
Description
Silver Chest boutique hotel is located in downtown Kunming. It's belong to one part of the only remaining old street in the city. It's not only the best but also the only boutique hotel in Kunming with amazing More location. You can walk into one of the most attractive place to visit in town called birds and flower market in 3 minutes. The biggest shopping district in Kunming is 5 minutes away by foot. You can also walk to Green Lake Park in 20 minutes from here. Kunming International Airport is also only 40 minutes away by car. The building of the hotel was built in 1924. The building itself is a piece of art. The combination of local Yunnan Bai minority courtyards and the influence from the western architect in early 1900s made it the most unique architect left in the city. The street where this building located on was used to be called "small silver chest alley", that's why we named it "silver chest" today. The hotel is fully furnished with old Shanghai antiques furniture and well designed to meet the demand of modern life requirements. You can still enjoy the luxury 5 star experience in an old style building in downtown Kunming. Less
