We spent four nights in this excellent hotel. The desk staff spoke English and were very helpful. The room had a desk, love seat, Chinese style decor and included a western style bathroom. The bed was incredibly comfortable unlike many in China which are hard as a rock. They brought in a complementary fruit plate daily and always put a... More

After 3 weeks travelling in China we stumbled into the Garden Hotel. What a pleasant surprise! Great staff and high level of personalized service. Kudo's for the staff and manager! And...real good espresso and cappucino at breakfast. What a feast!

I stayed at the Garden hotel recently, returning after having previously stayed here 6 years ago. The hotel was clean and comfortable, as I recall it being on my first visit. We enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Chinese restaurant on the 2nd floor, which was very busy. The hotel is in a great location, a short walk from some... More

I stayed just one night in Datong to visit the Hanging Temple and the Yunyang Grottoes. I paid 360Y for a private taxi from the hotel. The location is perfect in the center of Datong and the hotel is beautiful. The rooms are nice, comfortable bed, good pillows, excellent bathroom... They provide you all you need. The breakfast is really... More

Even before we stepped into the Hotel, a young man wished us in good English a warm welcome and asked if he could help us. Did you maybe made any reservation, no we didn't just let me check if we have rooms available, he came back with a smile, yes we have. We really do understand the recommendation for this... More

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
