“Boutique and civilised is Urumqi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This hotel also goes by the name "Musbox Hotel". It was by far the most comfortable of all the hotels we stayed in at Urumqi.

The rooms are decorated in a modern style and the bathrooms are big with heated toilet seats. The beds are soft and there is an iPod dock on the alarm/radio. The breakfast is Chinese style and a bit limited.

The hotel is in walking distance from many of the bars and clubs. The staff were great and genuinely helpful from time to time. You won't need Mandarin to be able to stay here if your requests are straightforward.

We tried the deluxe and the standard business rooms. The deluxe gave you a bigger room and a sofa but the fittings were more or less the same so go for the standard business single room unless you really want to stretch out.

This was the only hotel we stayed at in Xinjiang that had wifi. It was a bit patchy at times but was generally running.

This hotel would be my first choice again if staying in Urumqi. The hotel has an airport shuttle service but you need to give 24 hours notice to use it. The staff can otherwise arrange a private car for you if you don't fancy wrangling a taxi.

There is a very nice Chinese hotpot restaurant just next door to the hotel.

The unlicensed taxi driver took us from the airport to a karaoke box about 3 blocks away from the hotel with a similar name to the hotel so watch out for that one!

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

I stayed here coz it is #1 reviewed hotel in ctrip.com. The location of this hotel is among the e-products--so if you want to buy accessories for cell phone etc, this hotel is very close to them.
The room is small, but very clean. Bed is comfort. Bath is very new, modern and toilet is the wash-let. Service people are extremely responsive. There was a little AC problem when I stayed in hotel for the whole day watching TV coz I was tired. My son enjoys the theme of this hotel-music very much. He like the music box most.

Amazingly modern hotel (may-be new), beautiful room with floor to ceiling windows and view on the many high buildings in the center of town, very good bedding, exceptionally vast shower, automatic toilet-flushing; good restaurant, friendly service. The communication in english was difficult at times at the reception, but the staff was helpful and things went well.

Have just spent a couple very good nights in Urumqi. This hotel is well situated on Wenhua Lu; it is elegant as well as fun (with a 'music' theme); very clean; well kept rooms; and hospitable staff. It is a hotel that I would highly recommended.

Room Tip: Also reasonably close to the Texas Cafe (10 minutes walk), if interested in good western food. And a...
