I've read some of the other reviews of this hotel and it must have been renovated since some of them were written.
I stayed for two nights to allow me to visit the grottoes at Yungang.
The lobby is impressive and check in was efficient. They don't get a lot of foreigners but one staff member spoke excellent English and the others had some.
My room was clean and comfortable with complimentary water. The bed was excellent. There was free wired internet in the room.
I paid €25 per night which was excellent value.
According to Ctrip the location is 3 km from the railway station - it's closer to 7 km, 15 yuan in a taxi. (Agoda says it's 50 metres from the railway station but I never believe Agoda when it comes to location). It's very convenient for the long distance bus station - 5/6 minutes' walk.
Datong itself isn't anything to write home about. The hotel is in the business district. If you want to go out to eat, turn left when you leave the hotel and then turn right at the next intersection. There's a large mall there and some street food and a McDonalds further along.
