This is an excellent hotel. The room was spacious and clean. It was bit dry; I should have use the humidifier in the room. Good selection of toiletries, good shower and hot water. Wifi worked fine. Their location is very practical as it is only a short taxi ride from the train station (10RMB). From the hotel you can also... More

Tried hard to accommodate even though few staff can competently speak English. Room chosen had sitting area, bathroom very well constructed and modern. Bed very comfortable. Only con was the difficulty controlling the temperature. The hotel is located in an area slated for reconstruction; the hotel probably located here as part of that effort Food choices could be expanded in... More

It takes around 10 minutes and 10 RMB by taxi from the railway station. Location is convenient because within the old city walls, walking distance to most of the city attractions and many restaurants. Good rooms, international breakfast with real Italian coffee, helpful staff. Business center staff can help you plan your visits, book a tour or hire a car.... More

Datong is not a popular tourist attraction. They recently started upgrading the town to becoming a tourist destination. However, there are hardly any English signs or people that speaks English. It's best to stay at Garden Hotel because most of the staff speaks English and very helpful. We took the Train ride here from Beijing to Datong and arrived around... More

Stayed here with 6 people (4 adults and 2 kids) in March 2015 as a base to see the hanging monastery and the Yungang Grottos. We were very happy with our choice. Traveling as a family of four (plus grandparents), we booked two twin deluxe rooms for us and one business suite for the grandparents. All rooms were clean, in... More

The location of the hotel is great as it is inside the old city walls right next to the drum tower. We spent two nights and enjoyed being able to explore the old part of town by foot. It is also conveniently located to the Feeling restaurant (5 min walk) which I think is a must in Datong. Booking -... More

I was there for 4 nights and the rooms are good size, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are delightful people willing to help and be of... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in May of 2014. The drum tower is about a block from the hotel. The Huayan Street can be reached on foot in less than 10 minutes. Shopping and restaurants are also close by. The airport by car is about 30 to 40 minutes. I arrived by bus from Beijing and it... More
