A general question to the community. On mobile we added an 'app-like' menu in the bottom of the page, as opposed to the previous 'hamburger-style' menu in the top left hoping we can make sections of the website more easily accessible and more in tune with how apps generally function.
Is this making access more easy and intuitive, apart from the time it takes to get used to the new location of the main menu? There's also a fold-out menu because of the limited horizontal space a phone screen offers. Would you change the order of the items or have any other feedback regarding the new mobile menu?
@Alexez Thank you for your feedback. We're doing our best with the resources we have to update the design and general functionality. As far as ads go, most of them are designed by the advertisers themselves, although we do assist them when requested. Not too sure how many flashing images you see. Are you referring to ads or main article section on the homepage?
@Napav Thank you for the tip. We'll look into it for sure. One thing that always worries me with using third-party software is that eventually it may get blocked.
Thanks for the feedback. Indeed it can be considered a canvas to add more layers to later. A dark mode for night time viewing sounds like a good idea.
We added "Get directions" and "Open in Gaode" links to listings. Would be great to know if they work properly across all different devices. Results will vary, as each phone's default map apps are different.
No results found.
Five stars for focussing on healthy foods. Homemade live sauerkraut, lots of dishes with quinoa, chia seeds, avocado, and tons of other superfoods mixed to create a tasty and healthy cuisine. I hope this is only the beginning of a new wave of alternative food options in the city.
One of the better options in Lijiang for a western meal. Had a set menu through meituan for only 99 yuan that included a very decent steak and onion soup. The environment is spacious and nicely designed with the restaurant being conveniently located in between the InterContinental and LUX hotel inside of the old town. We were not drinking, but they looked like having an impressive wine collection. 5 stars if they improve on speed and service level.
Sofitel is easily one of Kunming's top hotels now, featuring one of the best locations, in between the city center and the popular Dianchi Lake area.
The views from any of its rooms, as well as the buffet restaurant are quite stunning, offering previously unseen panoramas over the whole of Kunming.
There's a bar on the 50th floor, although currently it still has some work to do to be able to compare itself with similar 'skybars' in Shanghai or Beijing.
Pullman appears to be an exception to what the hotel chain is known for. What is generally a branded as a business hotel, in Lijiang has transformed into a true international resort.
The villas are spacious, beautifully designed and as Chris mentioned in the review 6 years ago, the espresso maker is a brilliant example of the Management's attention to detail.
Make sure to book a villa that features an outside hot tub to watch the stars at night in any season – hot or cold.
A 10 minute walk will bring you to the gates of Shuhe Old Town, while Pullman is also located right in between Dayan Old Town and the now more popular Baisha. The hotel itself also supplies stunning views of Yulong Snow Mountain, which never fails to excite my senses.
Summarized, the entire experience is rather amazing. If there would be any criticism, I would recommend reconsidering prices for both spa treatments and drinks in the bar. Compared to the relatively affordable rooms and villas, they're a bit outside most people's reasonable spending budget. Otherwise, highly recommended!
Still in their soft opening period, it already feels like the most high-end business hotel in the north of Kunming with a great touch of design.
Nearby Xuning Temple, 978, Botanical Gardens and Black Dragon Pool its location is actually quite interesting, especially for people who don't visit the north of town very often.
There's still points needing improvement, which is to be expected at this point, but altogether a great hotel. Make sure to stay at the higher floor numbers, as the Southeast-Asian room style will generally more suit the taste of Westerners.
