Great location near the airport: it took me only 7 mins to walk from the door of the guesthouse to the entrance door of the airport - this was important to me as my flight was at 6.30am and I did not need to arrange transport. This is not a good location to explore Kunming; it is far from the city center and public transport there is difficult. It is a place to sleep when coming or going via the airport.
This is a very basic budget guesthouse - what is expected for such a cheap price. My room had a bed, a chair a mirror and a fan (there are air con rooms)..didn't need anything else. This guesthouse is the ground floor of a house. There are communal showers and toilets at the end of the corridor. There were flies in the shower room, this was because there was a door open to the garden - didn't bother me as it is what to be expected in such a climate.
There were 8 rooms though there was only one other person staying when I was there, so it was very quiet.
There is a small reception area with sofas to sit and read the variety of magazines. There is a microwave and kettle with complimentary tea/coffee in this area.
It is kinda isolated, but come out of the driveway and turn right. Walk for 10 mins along the road. You will get to a shopping mall adjoined to the bus station. It has several of your normal shopping mall type eating places, a big supermarket, and many other shops including a bookshop with English language novels.
The manager and his brother in law, the owner were so friendly and helpful. I mentioned I was a vegetarian and he drove to around the city to find a vegetarian restaurant. They were very helpful and if it were not for the fact that I was going rather than coming, I could have picked up a lot of hints as to how to explore the area more cheaply. The attitude and helpfulness of the owner is excellent. I ended up having dinner with him discussing our mutual travels. He and his wife have traveled a lot since retirement, and having encountered difficulties in their own travels, want to provide a reliable and trustworthy service to others.
This is an excellent budget option for those who just want a place to lay their heads right next to the airport.
