Other reviewers say this is the best hotel in Datong - I think that's a bit of a backhanded compliment. I'd go as far to say it's possibly the best hotel I've ever stayed at (and I've stayed at a lot of hotels). Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, great location, nice prices. Don't miss the Latin restaurant - while the buffet... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. We didn't pay the rack rate, instead we paid 360RMB which included breakfast. This got us a large and very comfortable room. The hotel had lots of nice touches like leaving you a bowl of fruit each day, complimentary mineral water, chocolate on your pillow at night. This was luxury for us as we... More

It's such a wonderful hotel- especially for this price! (we paid 360RMB incl.breakfast)! The location is great, the room is big and tastefully decorated. The staff can't speak too much English, and the girl at the tourist information desk couldn't give very simple and updated infos easily (if we can take a bus to the caves), but she was trying...

We stayed here for just one night and it was enough. The hotel is supposedly one of the best ones in Datong, but there were too many issues to give it more than 3 stars. It seems like no one speaks English here, so we had a very difficult time ordering food for dinner at the Chinese restaurant on the... More

We stayed two nights in this modern and classic hotel, perfectly located in the center of Datong. The room is big and clean, the facilities are very good. The only thing is that the room had a slights smell of cigarets even if I asked for a non-smoking room. But it went away after few hours of running the A/C.... More

Yup. This is a well-run hotel. Clean and comfortable. Tasteful and unique furniture. Incredible value (240 RMB)! Wifi in room. Reviewers who have posted negative reviews are the kind of people you do not want to come around for dinner.

Good hotel located in downtown Datong, 15 minutes by taxi from train station. We didn't use the restaurant for any meals, but expect to pay 48rmb for Chinese breakfast and 70 rmb for a western breakfast. We reserved our room on elong for 240 rmb (w/o breakfast) while rates posted at hotel indicate the room price as 1080 rmb! Spa... More

Did a driving trip from Beijing to Datong to visit the Yungang Grottoes and Xuankong Hanging Temple. Did a search for a suitable hotel to stay in Datong and Garden Hotel did not disappoint. It was value for money. The hotel has a carpark located behind the hotel and it is free for hotel guests. Hotel staff is friendly and... More

This place is fantastic...service is the key...staff could not be happier or friendlier if they tried. This hotel has provided the best service in my 8 months in China and did it for a bargain basement price. The location cannot be beaten...50 metres from the drum tower...400 metres to the city walls...400 metres to the pedestrian street and 500 metres... More
