We were in Taiyuan to adopt our sons. The Shanxi Grand Hotel was convenient to the park, a bank and some shopping. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. Although the language barrier was present sometimes, we were surprised to meet a waiter, at breakfast, who was studying English. His language skills were quite good. I was amazed at... More

Sadly, we only had one night here whilst travelling in the Shanxi Province. Upon arrival we were greeted in the friendliest and warmest manner. Reception staff were brilliant. Our room , although not spacious was certainly well designed,spotlessly clean and had the most comfortable bed we have slept on in China. The Chinese restaurant meal was really good and breakfast...

It all starts well as you enter a huge and grand lobby, pianist tinkling the ivories and friendly staff. But then you look for your luggage only to find a helpful bell hop has moved it to some remote storeroom because it was cluttering up the entrance. So to the room. It all looks nice but then shortly after midnight... More

Spent 5 nights in Taiyuan. Unfortunately, I don't think there are many quality hotel options, even though Taiyuan has 4 million people in it. Service was good, even though we had a moment or two of cultural language difficulty. The lobby is pretty nice, but often smelled of smoke, since a large percentage of Chinese smoke. Was tough on our... More

This hotel fails to live up to the promise of its name. It might have been grand when was built – perhaps thirty or forty years ago – but it appears rather dated now. My room was small and it seemed cosy after the sub-zero temperatures outside. I had two large suitcases and had to open them one by one... More

We enjoyed two nights at this well run hotel. Service was good and we had great help from their travel consultant to help sort out airline re bookings Would certainly reccommend this hotel and this city

Another impressive foyer. Loved the statue outside of a pianist, music from a pianist inside is piped outside to it. Free Wifi in the lobby is an asset, room was big enough and breakfast had a good range of food. Coffe was expensive from the restaurant but we enjoyed sitting and listening to the piano.

We spent a night in Taiyuan on our way to Pinyao. The hotel is in fairly good condition and everything in the room works. The internet speed is very fast - 75Mbps download and 50Mbps upload. The breakfast buffet has a wide variety but there is limited sitting in the dining room. We had a very good lunch in the... More
