Could anyone reccomend a hotel near or even on the airport in Kunming? I have done a google search to no avail

Does it have to be right near the airport? The airport is quite close to town.

We stayed at the Camellia, twice, and paid the same (180 yuan) for a grotty room once, and for a nice room once. Ask for a room at the front of the building if you stay there. A lot of travellers end up here. I was also recommended the Cloudland hostel which is a bit cheaper I think.

Apologies if there was a specific reason for being right at the airport - thought I'd post the info anyway.

It depends on your budget. The Camellia is the classic backpackers and is ok. Clean enough and with a nice bar attached and a great restaurant just down the street that does quite a bit of western food.

I've also stayed at the Green Lake (when someone else was paying) and it is great. Lots of other choices too.
