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

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

The Shanxi Grand is our company's contracted hotel in Taiyuan, and I've stayed here about ten times over the past few years. I believe it was Taiyuan's best hotel at one time, and with no famous chain names entering the market this is still the hotel of choice here. In any other major market such as Beijing, this hotel would... More

Shanxi Grand Hotel was a five star hotel in Taiyuan town.Considering the Northern Loaction and its not so prominent position in the CHina map- the hotel was very posh, comfortable and located at a great place. We had stayed for two nights and we did not feel that we are staying in far off town. It was agreat surprise and... More

This was my third visit so I thought I'd share my views. I'm not a big fan of Taiyuan. First time I came, it was like walking into a coal plant because the air was so bad, and this hotel mismanaged the booking so I ended up with a twin room (with one of the leaky walk-in showers) which smelt...
