You go to Taiyuan and you would expect some well built but somehow grey hotel. In fact this was a total surprise. Marble and columns everywhere, a room bigger than the average apartment in town, windows in the restaurant higher than the full size of a giraffe , acquarius with lovely fishes staring at you. But most, the number and... More

The hotel location is not so far from airport, it takes 15-20 minutes by car. The lobby is very impressive with its decoration and structure. And the room is super big for business traveller like me. It would be very convenience for staying with family because it has a big sofa and terrace, big swimming pool, but I don't think... More

We stayed at the Chateau Star River hotel in Taiyuan for one night in October 2013, mainly because we had to catch an early morning flight from Taiyuan to Hong Kong, after spending several days touring the Pingyao area. Chateau Star River is a fairly new hotel and immaculately clean. Our room was huge, and there was even a small... More

The whole hotel is more like a garden park, very beautiful and graceful, a lot of European construction and style, lobby is nice, rooms are all suits, big and comfortable, banquet room looks very fantastic, everything looks so nice here, the best hotel in Taiyuan. But unfortunately, service is sucks. No greetings from the very beginning you entered this hotel,... More

The year-old Chateau Star River is part of a massive development that encompasses the hotel and an adjoining residential apartment complex which is still under construction. Restaurants and other public areas appear expansive and somewhat labyrinthine but the hotel's shopping arcade was not yet open during our stay. No expense is being spared by the Guangzhou-based developer to create an... More

It is the newest and nicest hotel in Taiyuan. Rooms are clean and big, no tv channels in English. There is a distinct strong amonia like smell from all the new paint through out te hotel. The cafe has a nice ala carte menu and the food was actually very good. Beds are big, soft and comfortable. Staff is friendly... More

I booked this hotel through a large third party website and was able to get a room with three beds for three adults, breakfast included for a very reasonable rate. The check-in was very quick and efficient and the staff were very pleasant. Our room was on the 11th floor and there was a marvelous security feature on the elevator... More
