If you expect to find a Camellia Hotel on dongfengdong road, please check the new and right address. This hotel at that place doesn't exist anymore because of the subway construction. I give 5 stars only for this precious information :)

As others have said the hotel is dated, in need of a refurb. For the price is reasonable and in a decent area where you can wander around and get your fix of Crossing Bridge Noodles in a number of nearby restaurants back on the main road. Don't expect too much here, good for a quick stop off between trips... More

We stayed just one night after returning from Yuanyang and before heading home, but this hotel, although somewhat old and worn, was quite good for the price. The room was quiet and spacious and had obviously once been quite good, although when we stayed the bathroom was rather worse for wear. It had been reserved through an agent for us.... More

This review refers to the NEW Camellia Hotel. The old one has been demolished and the owners have taken over another older hotel. If you do stay here, make sure you have the new address written down in Chinese characters, otherwise you might end up at the demolition site of the old hotel. It appears that the owners are in...

The hotel was very dated. The rooms were spacious but the bathroom was average size. The bed was super hard and there's no AC in the room since the weather in Kunming is never too hot. However, I did find it difficult to sleep as there were mosquitoes around. It did not have much amenities in there but I didn't... More

We stayed at the hotel as part of an organized tour. The rooms are similar to something you would expect in the '60s . We tried two different electrical adapters and both times they shorted out and sparked when we plugged them in. No A/C, with the windows opened, the traffice noise is quite loud. The common areas of the... More

The hotel seems a little old and in need of a little love. However the room and bathroom was clean enough and reception staff were friendly. The breakfast was very disappointing not a lot of western choices. Not memorable but provides a bed for the night.

We stayed here as part of an organized tour (a 5 person group), so had no choice in the matter. I wouldn't choose to stay here. It was serviceable, fine, but nothing to write home about. Rooms & Cleanliness: OK, but not great. The beds are hard (yes, to be expected in China, but other hotels on our tour proved... More

Even though room is basic it is spacious and clean. Currently there is construction on going for a subway outside the main road of the hotel as such taxis have to take a longer detour to reach the hotel. But our room is still quiet. The only setback is there is no air-condition in the room. The night is cool... More

I stayed here for 2 nights - one night at the beginning of my trip and one night at the end of my trip (both pre-booked). The location is ok, not outstanding. The hotel is average - nothing stands out about it, but then again it is not terrible. On my first night there it was difficult to communicate with... More
