As other travelers have mentioned here I also came to Datong purely to go to the Hanging Monastery and the Grottoes (which by the way are amazing!!!! Really worth it). Mmm when I went to check-in, there was a lady having a problem with her room and the 3 staff members behind the desk were all looking after her problem. I was ignored for about 10 minutes... the staff kept walking from one place to another in a rush.... and yeah...check-in took a long time, but I'm young so didn't really affect me that much, just saying that check-in needs to be faster and they have to make eye-contact with all guests!.
The room surprised me... I was expecting a basic room like the ones at Melbourne/Sydney airport but this one blew me away....it was very modern, had a window separating the bathtub and the bedroom (pretty similar to some rooms you would find at Westin, W and Marriott)....and it was very spacious.
I also got a birthday cake in the afternoon after coming back from my tour.... it was awesome!...Although it wasn't my birthday :) hehe.
The hotel is a bit far from the city centre but you can definitely walk there and back if you want to explore.
