I found Seman hotel is only Uyghur style decorated hotel in Kashgar. I highly recommend to choose this hotel. It was a Russion Consulate in 1890 and you can see the Old Consulate buildings and the envirement is very very good. Receptiones in this hotel speaks very good English as well.

Rather impersonal atmosphere, and indifferent staff. But the location is quiet and convenient, and very reasonable cost, On the site of the original Russian consulate, built in 1890. Rooms and standards vary, so check them out first, Rooms in the oldest wing are decorated in Uyghur style. I was intrigued by the dozen or more lavatories , which were neatly... More

This is an interesting hotel. We are attracted by its historical background, Russian Consulate in Uyghur style. However, according to modern day's standard, this hotel is a bit old and tired. When sitting in the lobby, many people will approach you asking you if you need someone to take you around. When walking to the room, the bus boy will... More

I've spent a total of three nights in this hotel as part of a tour I booked with Old Road Tours. The best thing about this hotel is the location, it's in the city centre and you can walk pretty much everywhere. It's a cheap hotel so don't expect too much - I stayed in the building at the back...

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
