We travelled end May and beginning June 2014 through the Xinjiang region. If you take the heightened security measures for granted and respect the authorities (as we did), you can have a very interesting journey in this region (Urumqi, Khotan, Yarkand and Kashgar. Although it is possible to travel without knowledge of Uyghur or some basic Chinese, we would not... More

We came to the Seman and were offered a larger room with four twin beds. The price was not too bad, but I expected that the front desk manager would at least bargain a little especially since the season was the slow season. The lighting was pretty bad all over the hotel, and although the carpets were a nice touch,... More

Service dreadful. Staff disinterested and dismissive. We put laundry in and had to ask repeatedly to get it back. Breakfast appalling. Dont do it. Go next door to Johns cafe. Decor horrid and the stench of cigarettes in most rooms. Never again

Yes, this hotel is certainly grimy and rundown. But there's nowhere else in Kashi I would have preferred to stay. Not least because of the pastel pink and baby blue painted room - felt like sleeping inside a kitsch wedding cake. The rooms themselves vary greatly in cleanliness and size, so it's worth checking a few out before you make... More

This place is run down and smells faintly of boiled cabbage. It is also oozing with character, so as long as you set your expectations accordingly it can make for a pleasant stay. It's well located, quiet and fairly priced. I had a room overlooking a leafy courtyard away from the city bustle. The bed linen was clean and while... More

The hotel is really rundown. The rooms were satisfactory. There was a bad smell in the lobby. The room was on the third floor and there were no elevators. The Air Conditioning was good. The shower was a hand held. John's restaurant was just downstairs and had excellent western food at low prices and good service

We stayed at Seman Hotel a long time while waiting for our package that would arrive there. The only reason stayed there and kept staying there is because it is the cheapest option for a double room with a private bathroom. There is however nothing athmospheric about this hotel. We stayed at the right side of the hotel. The room... More

A good surprise as I read some averages advices about this hotel. I slept on the left side of the hotel, near the cafe, closed at night. The bed are ok, the room not big but,so quiet. It is possible to catch the wifi from the cafe from some rooms. The only bad thing is the bathroom which need some... More

On first glance, most Western travelers used to 3-4 star accommodations may be a little taken aback at Seman Hotel's shabby front and slightly dirty bathrooms, but after your first night here, you may be grateful that you're living here instead of one of the other hotels in Kashi's Old Town. Seman Hotel has a lot of character, unlike some... More

The best thing about the Seman Hotel is the decor -- each room has very interesting plasterwork on the walls and it is nice to stay in a place that has a bit of local flavor. The second best part is the presence of John's Cafe right there on hotel grounds. We visited Kashgar during Ramadan and it was impossible... More
