Nice hotel in the center of Datong. The restaurant offers very good Chinese cuisine. The 6th floor (top floor) is non-smoking, which is a great plus for a Chinese hotel. The rooms are a little old but clean and well furnished. The breakfast offers a wide selection of both Chinese and western choices. The staff is very pleasant and makes... More

What a pleasant surprise when we arrived here. The staff were excellent and friendly a beautiful hotel. The indoor courtyard with all rooms around it and the spectacular lighting, the glass lift down to the restaurant, piano bar area. Just loved the feel of the whole place. The breakfast smorgasbord was the best we had on our whole trip and... More

I am pleased to echo the positive reviews of my fellow travellers. The Garden Hotel is located in the centre of Datong, walking distance to Huayan Monastery, the Southern Gate of the reconstructed city wall, the mosque and pedestrianized shopping area. The structure is probably from the 90s but is tastefully decorated in Chinese style. The lobby benefits from beautifully... More

Stayed four nights here and must say the hotel deserves its ranking. Room was spacious and amenities plentiful, clean and well serviced. Breakfast was a choice of Western and Asian and the food was delicious. Hong Ya Court Restaurant was superb, menu in English and food was superb. Staff were friendly and helpful and I can recommend this hotel to... More

This hotel is a gem. Hotels in China can lose out in the cleanliness department but this one is very clean, room curtains and fixtures were all well cared for, they had plenty of hot water, a great buffet breakfast (with eggs made to order). Most notable is that the staff are very well trained to go the extra steps... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. the location is also good being adjaent to the Drum tower. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Datong.

After 7 days of go go GO, this comfy, quiet hotel with over the top East/West breakfast was a very short but welcome overnight stop. I think every room was booked, breakfast room was busy but buffet was replenished quickly. Thrilled to have option of 'real' coffee or fancy lattes! a rare treat in mid price hotels. Wait staff quickly... More

This hotel is as central as can be. The room was spacious and very clean. Facilities were excellent. There was even a water vapour ioniser which could come handy if one has some respiratory problems., for example as a consequence of the AC. The staff were most helpful and kind. Sleep quality was excellent and the Breakfast superb. We stayed... More

We walked into the Hotel after learning the airline lost our luggage. The staff at the Hotel were already aware of this and assured us it would be ok. They helped us make tour reservations to the Hanging Temples and the Grottos. They provided an excellent driver and simple transportation service for a decent price (no shopping etc). For 3... More

Do not hesitate to stay in this hotel, in the center of the "old" city center of Datong. Its comfortable beds, clean rooms and silence rooms will make your stay a very pleasant experience. Furthermore, the price/quality is unbeatable, above all for its western/eastern breakfast that will allow you to drink coffe and milk in China, something very strange in... More
