Hotel is relatively new. Rooms are decent sized. We were given a two bedroom suite. Comfortable sleep. Toilet is good enough as compared to horrible ones I have stayed in. Breakfast has a good spread - the best so far in my 11 day vacation and among the 8 hotels that I moved around. Free wifi too..

For Americans traveling to China, this large hotel with large guest rooms represents a great value. I did find the carpet in my guest room was very stained, the air conditioning didn't sufficiently cool the room, and housekeeping was inconsistent. One guest in my party couldn't adjust the water temperature in the shower. Very few staff members speak English so... More

Found the hotel on ctrip with the help of a local colleauge in China. http://hotels.ctrip.com/hotel/436531.html Price for a room with three beds was 550Y/night in the October holiday which must be considered good (being a public holiday!) The breakfast was ok and even had western alternatives like cereals, espresso and others. Good indeed! Would not hesitate to stay there again... More

Who knows exactly how we ended up in Datong, but being there you couldn't do better than staying at the Great Palace. For the price the room was palatial, we did Pilates on the (very clean floors) with room to spare. English downstairs wasn't fantastic but the willingness shown by the staff to do whatever was needed to make our... More

Booked a standard room via ctrip and got an excellent deal on this 5 star hotel. Hotel itself is presentable, so were the rooms. The entire staff were very hospitable, from the bellboys to the managers, all provided us with the utmost service, were some of the best I've encountered in China. Agreed with the other reviewers, housekeeping needs work,... More

Not bad for a 5 star hotel in China and we were told that this is one of the best in Datong. Interestingly it didn't have a very grand lobby but the room was chic and great for a couple, we loved it. However, just poor house-keeping, there was no hot water and they sent someone work on it in... More

This is a luxury hotel, by American standards. Hotel and room decor are quite elegant, with all the amenities that Americans expect. (Although the room rug was fairly dirty -- not surprising, given the level of air pollution in this city.) Our room had problems with adequate hot water. I can't address the question of whether the staff spoke English,... More

I LOVE the design of the rooms in this hotel, they are simply gorgeous. It is also very clean and comfortable. The staff here are extremely courteous, always attentive and ready to act immediately to help you and greet you enthusiastically with beautiful smiles as you pass by. This hotel is HUGE and it's easy to get lost navigating through... More

Datong has built too many luxury hotels in the last two or three years. This has led to prices being low during non-peak times of year. I had a large room on the 22nd floor with a partitioned sitting area for under 400 RMB/night. Good breakfast and friendly service. The location is rather far to the south, a long 13... More

This is definitely not an "international" hotel. There are 10 girls behind the front desk but not one understands simple words like "hello" or "luggage" what turns every little request into a nightmare. Nobody seems to be in charge of anything or trying to help you. Our "non-smoking" superior room was very dirty and was definitely used as a smoking... More
