Beautiful resort, only about 10 minutes away from downtown. The food in the Chinese restaurant is excellent. The rooms are very spacious. there are 2 American twins in each room. Big enough for 2 adults and 2 children. There are flowers and many fruit trees in the resort. you can see beautiful birds fly among the trees. Love it.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2006

This hotel is located about 7km outside of "downtown" Dunhuang, about half way coming from the airport. The location therefore is very quiet - but also quite isolated. To get to town you need to use the hotel shuttle (which runs at an unknown schedule) or have the reception call a taxi, which takes about 15 min for a cab to come out of town. Costs are about 15-20 RMB. While the hotel rooms are spacious and rather well equipped (no internet, no safe) cleanliness lacks in certain areas. The main problem, however, is the lack of English - none of the staff members speaks sufficiently well to respond even to the simplest questions. Having said this, everybody is extremely concerned and well-meaning towards western tourists (we were the only ones during our three-day stay). Laundry is cheap and quick. One evening there was a rather doubious visit of two young ladies in serious white doctor's coats offering massage services - which we declined. The next day we were offered a fruit basket as a compensation for the Chinese breakfast - they did not know what a Western breakfast would be like. All in all not a bad experience, but nothing for the average western tourist who expects a certain standard when reading "five-star" hotel (this is definitely only a 3-star). The location makes you feel isolated from the real life. Nevertheless, Dunhuang and the surrounding sights (the desert, the Mogao caves) make a visit very worthwhile!
