The restaurant opened 20 minutes prior to the opening time ; 7:00 but it was not completely ready. Around 7:15, Omlet station, Noodle station and the other hot buffet were fully ready. Handmade noodle from the Noodle station was very very nice ;9

I stayed three nights in a room with a double bed, that was reeally comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated, but perfectly OK. Internet worked well. The breakfast is outstanding! Fshly made noodles are fantastic, and there is an excellent offer in general, even with relatively good machine coffee.

We came with a tour group so had no choice. Although we turned the A/C down quite low because it was warm, we were told that it was actually centrally controlled and the hotel didn't deem it warm enough to have real A/C for the rooms. There were no electric outlets near the beds, which is common in China but... More

We stayed while my husband attended at conference at the Lanzhou university across the road. The rooms are fine, clean, nothing special but nothing wrong. The food at the breakfast is also fine, but the restaurant was overcrowded and they don't control the number of people eating at anytime and therefore there is often not enough tables to sit and...

This hotel is ideally situated at one of the main intersections in Lanzhou, near the University. The rooms are a bit small by Western standards, but very clean. The breakfast buffet is the best of the hotels in the area (I was there for a conference, and compared notes with friends). The staff are very helpful with restaurant recommendations, car... More

Ideally placed for the University. The rooms in this hotel and comfortable and well equipped. The bathrooms are functional and superficially clean, just try not to look at the mould on the sealant. On my first morning although breakfast was allegedly on offer from 06:30 the restaurant remained shut till 7:00, on later mornings it did open on time. The... More

I stayed at the Lanzhou Legend in 2003 and again in 2015. Like Lanzhou itself, the place had a big facelift in those intervening years, turning it from a nondescript hotel in a nondescript and remote Chinese city in to something more. I stayed in an Executive Standard Room (Room 2111), which was plenty big, with two comfortable beds. It... More

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
