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

Really good hotel. We were originally given a room without a bath even though we booked it but it was no problem to change rooms. Only issue with the new room is the air con didn't work... Besides that friendly staff, good breakfast, decent rooms.

We booked the hotel after reading many good reviews and I would agree with other reviewers on the good standard and value for money. The staff were very pleasent and spoke English which was helpful. Sheets, towels and room were clean and room was not noisy although facing the main street.

If you come to Datong for a business trip, this hotel is a very good choice. First of all, the price is very reasonable. You pay 2 stars hotel cost, but, you are getting 4-5 stars hotel service. Rooms are very big, up-to-date and clean. Breakfast is rich and you can find lots of western choices. Most staff can speak... More

Our family recently stayed at the Garden Hotel in Datong, recommended by other foreign friends who have traveled here. We were two families, each with three children (ages 2-10). Each family had two rooms, but we could have squeezed into a Deluxe Queen Room, as the rooms weren't all that small. The Pros: - Great service, and helpful, friendly staff.... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the Datong Garden Hotel. It was centrally located in an area within the city walls, with hutong style buildings. The room came with all amenities, there was even a fruit platter every afternoon and cookies around 5 pm. The only downside was that our room became rather hot because of the sunshine and the airco... More
