During my stay, the room heater was not working. The room was generally Ok. Bed and the 2 pillows were soft enough for a good night sleep. Bathroom was ok, just do not look at the silicone joints! Breakfast buffet was the standard chinese fare.

One of the most established hotels in Lanzhou. Rooms are old, small for China's standard and badly need a refurbishment. Breakfast was at a small restaurant. The restaurant staff clears your seat even before you are done, causing you to lose your seat.

Given the traffic in Lanzhou, if you are doing something at Lanzhou University this is the place to stay. It's a 300 yard walk to the University and the Hotel seems to be in the center of things. It is an older hotel with lots of aging elegance. The restaurant is good and the staff are helpful. Not a lot... More

It's the best hotel in Lanzhou, which makes sense since the hotel is centrally located and the lobby is spacious and grand. The breakfast area serves pretty good food, but when I was there a few tour groups were staying there too, and they ran out of food the first day. Plus, there were crazy lines to get eggs and...

Our deluxe standard room room with a view was nice. The location was good; next to a bank, across from the post office, and near a department store where we bought items for the train trip to Lhasa. We heard the buffet dinner was good, but after paying, we discovered many empty serving dishes and lots of food mislabeled in... More

The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre, and is generally well equipped and clean. The standard of hotels in China is different from what we might be used to in Europe. The rooms are a good size, with furniture in a good state of repair. The bathroom was ok, but could do with some refurbishment. The shower worked... More

Overall the hotel is OK. BUT needs some refurbishment, carpet needs help, toilet was not flushing properly and it is better not to look at details (shower curtains, silicon joints etc.). My room was on 19th floor, windows to the main road, giving a nice view on the crazy traffic, can be noisy from early in the morning. Lanzhou is... More

No complaints about this hotel. For China, it is clean, everything is working although the air condition is suspect and very moody! The Chinese breakfast is excellent. The staff in general very helpful although I had problems getting stamps for my postcards. Yes, everything is very dated and the hotel needs a refurbishment but this is China and you are... More

this hotel is conveniently located, near shops, restaurants and in the centre of the city. Is one of th few hotel in this area of china where you can get a western breakfast, believe me it is NOT that easy.
