Perfect for a lazy afternoon on the gorgeous, cozy rooftop garden with a cocktail/book and some comfort food. I recommend the sweet potato fries. my GOD they are good. the sauces for all the burgers too are a delight. enjoy!


Disclaimer: manager/chef/decorator Pat & Sarah are my friends. Apart from running a lovely and affordable guesthouse, they are also working insanely hard at serving delicious tacos and cocktails and more home-cooked goodness, organising community events at all hours (from craft markets to USA sports events to film nights to debates). The rooftop is a sunny roost where you can often find Kunmings finest chatting an afternoon or evening away. Thanks for creating this wonderful place Pat & Sarah! You're superstars.


3* for the food and the service (the sweets were good but the rest was not worth it) 5* for the room and the place itsself.


I've known their food for a while and it's always been excellent! (great for vegetarians). Had the chance to stay there for the weekend and it was perfect. Friendly and helpful staff, great location, clean and comfy rooms!

:) you can't go wrong if you stay here
