Location is great. Inside city wall, short (less than 10 min) walk to major temples, sights. Found Rooms clean, good size. TV, Internet work. Complementary water, turn down... 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

Great place to spend a night or two. It was lovely to come back to a warm room after a day of touring in the crisp air, and the bathroom heats up considerably if you use the overhead heating light. I appreciated the fresh fruit and chocolate on the pillow, as well as the humidifier provided. Toiletries provided include shampoo,... More

The review provided by Pete Beijing doesn’t leave much to add. We recently stayed at the Garden Hotel for two days. Check-in was a breeze, and the room was quite spacious with a good sized bathroom, providing good hot water although difficult to regulate. The bed was comfortable and the room well furnished with adequate lighting. The staff were extremely... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel in September 2013. It is located within the rebuilt city walls and in easy walking distance of the main Datong tourist attractions (Nine Dragon Screen, Drum Tower, etc.). Datong itself doesn't have much to offer as a city; the own centre is currently being rebuilt from scratch in a 'traditional' style, and... More

When you approach a hotel like Garden Hotel you aren't bowled away, it looks like any other Chinese hotel. However, nothing but praise for it, staff were pleasant (speaking Chinese is useful though), rooms were terrific and well kitted out, daily fruit and night time chocolates were a nice addition. Location is good and there's some great stuff in walking... More

The hotel is located within the rebuilt Old City Walls, and almost next door to the ongoing reconstruction of sections of the old inner city. For the "purest historian" it probably seems immoral; however for most tourists it probably is unique to be that close to what the city could have looked like a few centuries ago, even though today...

We booked this hotel mostly because it rated so high on trip advisor and i can positively say that it was worth all the praise it gets. The location is perfect inside the old city a short walk away from a lot of temples as well as the city wall. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The service was... More
