This is a typical tourist hotel that caters for large tour groups where most will stay for a night or two. My Iocal driver said it is the best in town but I would rate it 4 stars to manage readers' expectation. The rooms were smaller than the typical 4/5 star local hotels but well decorated, depending on your taste.... More

The location of the hotel is great. Near the river. Central. One of the few tall buildings. The lobby is grand big, waiters are friendly. Room and service are all OK. But not really qualify 5 star. I am satisfied, as this is is in DunHuang, a not so big city. The toliet flush was not working well. I repaired... More

The first impression was a good one: huge lobby, friendly staff, everything I would expect from a five star hotel. However, once we got our room, we were really disappointed. Our room was on the second floor and when we looked out the window, there was nothing but a big white wall blocking all view. Basically it was like a... More

Excellent breakfast buffet with items labelled in English and Chinese. Good location. Only issue was I had a non-smoking room yet an ashtray and matches were in the room (as was the case with most non-smoking rooms I had in China) but no smell of cigarettes. Comfortable room. Would stay here again.

One of the best hotels in town! Really loved the stay here and the BUFFET BREAKFAST! The decoration pieces are richly cultural and the services are excellent. One example: I felt tired and cold at that night and asked for a small barrel so that I can give myself a little foot massage with hot water. I dialed the phone... More

This is one of the better hotels in town- clean, nice size rooms, attentive employees. The location is excellent. There is a nightly light show in the small river/body of water behind the hotel, which really adds to the ambience. At the same time, the nightly outdoor market in Dunhuang is a 10 minute walk from the facility. As some... More

This hotel is in a good location. The room is well appointed. There was a unpleasant smell coming out of the floor drain in the bathroom that I had to cover with towel. The breakfast buffet is average and there is not much selection. Service is horrible from the front desk to buffet breakfast to room service. HARDLY anyone spoke... More

Good clean decent sized rooms with comfortable beds. Check in/out was smooth but could be faster. Breakfast a bit hit and miss. Why supply cups for coffee that are the same size as you would use for espresso ? I ended up filling 6 cups and using a plate as a tray. All in all, a good hotel that is... More

This hotel is part of a Chinese chain and goes by several names. It is usually listed in guidebooks as one of the two "luxury" choices for hotels in Dunhuang. I had reservations at another highly rated hotel, was very disappointed, and decided to try this one instead. I'm glad I did. From the rooms I was shown, I would... More

Judging by just the room, I would personally rate this hotel a 3 or 4 star, when compared to a 5 star hotel in New York City. The room was small but appeared new and pleasantly decorated. The splash of rich colors made it look modern. The cleaniness of both the room and bathroom were up to par. Free internet.... More
