There are so many grand hotels and buildings springing up in China that abound in every city. This is a wonderful exception that I hope will portend more old buildings being conserved and restored for commercial use.
This was an old building that was extensively renovated and equipped with all the trappings of a luxurious 5 star hotel, minus the modern outer shell.
Rooms were compact but very well equipped with a very comfortable bed, fine linen sheets, a lovely bathroom with period tiles, a very efficient aircon/heating system and quite decent sound proofing, wooden walls and doors notwithstanding.
The reception kindly pointed us down the street to an excellent local restaurant for dinner and the hotel breakfast was also excellent.Lovely courtyards, a tea room and a library complete the experience of what a local noble or wealthy merchant would have experienced 100 years ago. Well worth the experience!

Beautiful original hotel in the center of Kunming.
The staff and manager were very friendly and helpful.
The organized all our visits and transfers very well.
They can even provide a local mobile phone for foreigners who need it.
One thing which can be improved though is recommendations on local restaurants.

I compared Silver Chest to other highly rated skyscraper modern hotels before making a reservation. We definitely made the right choice in selecting Silver Chest which oozed old world atmosphere. Our only criticism was lack of space to store clothes. We also appreciated Superb communication with an English speaking staff member prior to trip and again after arrival when we needed help with arrangements when our plane was delayed over night in Beijing.

What a lovely place. Restored in the right way, with comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Not big, but adequate. Service was good as well. Breakfast options a bit limited, but the food was good. Can't beat the location. No aircon, but fan was enough to cool the room.

Stayed 2 nights. Great location but off street so needed to coordinate arrival with hotel. Located in tiny remaining old section of town. Good restaurants nearby. Highly recommend. Great change from mainstream hotels
