As other travelers have mentioned here I also came to Datong purely to go to the Hanging Monastery and the Grottoes (which by the way are amazing!!!! Really worth it). Mmm when I went to check-in, there was a lady having a problem with her room and the 3 staff members behind the desk were all looking after her problem.... More

This is a recently refurbished, modern and well-equipped hotel, not expensive. The major drawback is that it is located in a rather bland area, at some distance from the historic centre, though it is possible to walk over to the centre (about 1.5 km away). Friendly service and nice pool.

I'm not really a Holiday Inn kinda bloke - I really think this was the first real backpack they'd ever seen - but I was only sleeping in the bed. During the day I had a tour guide and was picked up and dropped off. The REAL reason I chose it was very close proximity to the Airport Shuttle. I... More

Although the name includes city centre - it was a good taxi ride to the old city. The rooms are good and spacious and the hotel is tucked in behind the Datong Hotel. The meals at the hotel are very expensive and as it is in the middle of administration offices and finance area, there was no place to eat... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. The property is new and modern which is great. The first room I checked into was WONDERFUL, then someone with a hammer was literally baning on the wall next to my room all afternoon, so I requested a room switch. My new room was not as nice, and they were gross wet stains... More

Stayed here for a month due to work. The room was great but carpet only hoovered once in a month. Washing was done very fast but expensive. Hotel food and drink was expensive £2.50 per 330ml bottle plus 10 percent. 640ml bottle was 40p from shop around the corner We eat out of hotel loads because of price. Can't knock... More

I stayed in the cheapest room available and it was a really good deal for the money. The room was spacious with a great bathroom and comfortable bed. The views were not particularly good, but that didn’t matter much. Other users noted the great bathrooms, and I agree, except that the shower floor was uncomfortable. The staff spoke limited English... More

Even at 5 star hotels in Datong, English ability is limited. Ordering room service can be an ordeal. The do not have 24 hour room service, and it is not reliable, but if it eventually arrives, the food was good. Be advised there are additional charges when you book this hotel. Currently 121 rmb service fee plus 56 rmb in... More

The room was quiet, the bed comfortable, the hot water wet. Dreadful restaurant offering indifferent, warm or room temperature Western or Chinese buffet food – until 21.00, well actually they were all packed up by then. The reasonable all-inclusive price appeared to offer as much wine or beer as you wished to consume. Yes please - no problem with room... More

The physical aspects of this hotel are good --big room, clean with normal Western services but we had endless trouble with the restaurant. Staff was not well trained and had difficulity with every request.
