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

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
