You will find below a selection of hostels and hotels in Kunming, Yunnan’s capital and which will probably be your first access point to Yunnan. These are hotels we have been working with for many years. Each of them of course has its own specificities, which we detail quickly below.
Hotels around Green Lake
Let’s start with the Lost Garden guesthouse, the Home Inn Plus, the Grand Park Hotel and Green Lake, all of which are in the Green Lake District of Kunming. This is a nice neighborhood that we recommend for first contact with Yunnan and China. Upon arrival at the hotel, you can stroll around the hotel and the Green Lake, then to the nearby Yuantong Temple. The heart of the city remains available not far away, on foot or by taxi. The Lost Garden guesthouse remains an interesting economic choice, however the rooms are of uneven quality. The Home Inn Plus is a standard hotel as there are many, but again the value for money is very good in the category of 3 * hotels in Kunming. For higher comfort, you will opt for the Grand Park, very well located and with a very reasonable rate for a 5 *, otherwise the Green Lake 5 *, a category still above.
City center hotels and flower and bird market
For a stay in the center of the city, in the shopping area but also right next to the old district of the flower market and birds, you can opt for the hotel New Era 4 *, beautiful hotel with comfort and impeccable service . Last address opened in Kunming in 2015, which is to our knowledge the first true boutique hotel in the city, the Silver Chest is the best address in terms of comfort and charm in Kunming, located in a beautiful renovated old residence, with a price however quite high.
