Rooms are large and comfortable with clean bathrooms but the food and drink service/selection was poor. Have stayed here twice now but probably not again. Don't try to check out before 7a.m. because the reception power/lighting is off and the computers don't work.

The rooms were very comfortable in this hotel. Nice large rooms, very clean. The breakfast was average. Some western food but mainly Chinese. The service was satisfactory, reception staff were helpful.

We have traveled extensively in China, and we put this at the bottom of the ranking of Western hotels that we have stayed at in China. Biggest problem: The air conditioning in the rooms did not work (although the rest of the building was comfortable.) We tried three different rooms, but were unable to get one in which the air...

My wife and I live in China, and a quite used to regular Chinese hotels, but for our trip to Datong, we had a friend along, so we decided to "splurge." We found a great deal at the Holiday Inn: about 36 USD a night. This is a great price for a name brand hotel. When we arrived, we were... More

I stayed here for two nights whilst in Datong and was pleasantly surprised at how well appointed the room was. The bathroom was large and spacious and the shower was excellent. I slept really well as the hotel is set back from the street and is therefore really quiet. This was despite the fact that I had to sleep with... More

1. Went there during winter (before X'mas). 2. The reception was very helpful. 3. Breakfast still need to be improved. 4. Was having tough time to sleep as the non adjustable centralized heater was too warm. End up have to open the window to let some cold air in to try to improve the situation.

I spent 9 years in the Army spending many weeks in the "field" so can handle "roughing it" when I have to. I did not expect we would be roughing it at a Holiday Inn. When we arrive April 1 I guessed they had an operating expense problem as all the lights were off in the lobby...when I saw the... More

By the time we got to the hotel, we were exhausted. I was surprised that there was a holiday in and expected it to be a motel kind of extablishment. I was very surprised that the hotel was clean, the room large and it seemed to be very upscale as far as expectations. There is even a spa on the... More

This is a great Holiday Inn - large and well appointed rooms. And, incidentally, incredibly inexpensive massage. I think I paid under Yuan 70 for an hour - about a third of what you get charged in other hotels (the company is independent of the hotel). The Guest Service Manager Zooy treated us wonderfully and really made the difference. We... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Datong for two nights in October 2013, while visiting the Yungang Grottoes and the Hanging Temple. Our experience at various Holiday Inns had never been great, but I was told that this may be the only acceptable place to stay in Datong. We had a delux room, which was actually a huge suite... More
