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

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
