My wife and I Went to Taiyuan intending to seek out the local sites for a day and use it as a base while doing a day trip to Pingyao Ancient City. Our plans changed when we arrived at the Jinci Hotel. When we arrived nothing seemed extraordinary, in fact the front of the hotel looked a little dated and... More

We have stayed in a number of 'Chinese' hotels over our year in China so far, this was by far the least welcoming. Granted, it was 11:00pm and I suspect the staff had already worked a long shift but these appeared to be the least tolerant of our limited Chinese and I don't think we saw a single smile. Not...

Environment is none to second. big lake give me a break for hot summer, beyeond which there are also enchanting pavilions and terraces. the historical Jinci park is not too far. can easily access and enjoy not only fantastic ancient architecture but also attractive natual scenery. Also tasted many local specialties in restaurant.

"Treated like royalty", comparisons to Western hotels, approval of Chinese hotel only and if it compares to Western hotels and has English decoration or serves Danish pastries, lack of appreciation of Chinese culture, delight in finding a Disneyland-like "Chinese park" built last year, complains over anything going less than perfect so that some redneck from Texas does not feel like...

I visited the Hindi Hotel with a plan to stay there for Christmas; however I received a phone call from trip saying the hotel had been expropriated by reg givernment. Too bad, the room I checked seemed to be modern, in a quiet setting, very nice decorations. I did try the buffet lunch which was nice, and I lingered over... More

This is definitely the best hotel I have stayed in China. I travelled with my parents, they are very old and the staff was just great, so caring, polite. The hotel is not in Taiyuan, is in Jinci, a preserved site, with the beutiful Jinci temple.. The hotel surroundings and landscape are breathtaking. The rooms are very spacious ( we... More
