...with all amenities including hot water/tea kettle, safe, bathrobes, but very poor, inadequate lighting for evening reading. Avoid Room 525 (very noisy central a/c fan). The main street the hotel is on has many local shops, but a real find were the two small shops about a 10-minute walk up the street offering beautiful, tasteful calligraphy brushes, scrolls, ink and...

The property didn't look its age at all. We were also pleasantly surprised by the breakfast buffet, which featured a good spread of both Western and Chinese food. The service was excellent as well. The travel desk assisted in arranging for a taxi (¥460) to bring us to the Hanging Monastery and the Wooden Pagoda. Mr Yang also waited for... More

Forget the UNESCO walls, grottoes, hanging temples and other city sites. It is worth coming to Datong just to stay here. Good red wine and cold beer in the atrium/courtyard with background grand piano followed by retirement to a large room with opening windows, extremely comfortable beds and good air conditioning. The rooms even have a humidifier. It was a... More

My original contact by email was easy and clearly outlined in English. Our overnight train from Beijing arrived at 7am. The hotel allowed us an early check in. We were so thankful to be able to have a shower and use a clean bathroom and to top it off, a nice complimentary fruit platter was delivered to our room. The... More

The stay at Garden Hotel ended up a great experience beyond any expectation. The humble look of the building would have made you think that it's just one of the 2 or 3 star hotels in China. But it isn't! This hotel is simply outstanding! It's location is great, within walking distance of the city wall and other tourist spots.... More

Very nice hotel - neat, tidy, clean. Certainly 4 star. Restaurant very good food and variety- had donkey and roasted rabbit - bit peppered dog was not available. In Datong in winter most shops close early and open late. So apart from the 24 hour McDonalds around the corner there was not much open late at night or early in... More

Love the hotel, nice Brazilian BBQ buffet every night!!! Great service, good English, fantastic Chinese food. The manager organized all tours, perfect timing. The whole city is under construction, so everything look destroyed. But it was a great experience. I have been. In the hotel 5 times!!!

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. We took an overnight train from Beijing, so we were pretty exhausted when we got to Datong. Luckily we were able to check in to our room right away for a rest. The room was super clean and lovely -- the bed was so comfy! After a nap, we went downstairs and spoke... More

Our stay at this hotel was above expectations. Staff were incredibly helpful, arranged our taxi for the day and could not do enough for us. Buffet breakfast was exceptional and extremely good value. We cannot fault this hotel and highly recommend it. Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer.

The Garden Hotel was booked by our travel agent (not our personal choice as we prefer boutique places) and has no garden, but was above expectation. The rooms were available at our train arrival at 7 AM in freezing cold Datong, with fluffy pillows, bathrooms with tub and walk-in shower, and an amazing Chinese & western breakfast buffet with delicious...
