“Clean simple hotel, not the greatest location, but an excellent choice in crowded Xining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

These are simple rooms- think Best Western in the US- but they have wood floors (and if you've seen the carpets in many Chinese hotels you are jumping for joy), hot showers with good water pressure, clean western bathrooms and English speaking staff. They often have rooms with one large bed (also hard to find in China) the beds are western style and comfortable. They are well lit and kept in 'new' condition. Overall a very solid hotel that I'd give 3 points in the US but close to 5 in China, expecially when you are in the sticks.
This location is somewhat poor, but a tax is going to cost you less than $2 anywhere in the city, so no real worries about that. There is a wonderful muslim night restaurant down the street past the college ($5 simple delicious dinner for two) as well as a (Sichuan? style) chinese place called the something Family Restaurant ($15 for two with beer).
Xining is the gateway to Tibet, and in the summer it is nightmarishly crowded. You need to have accomidations before you get there, and this hotel or a hostel may be your only options. Definately the cleanest hotel I stayed in in Xining by far. Also, the only night in China I actually had a full/queen sized bed.
The rooms are "ikeaesque' decorated and reminded me of a dorm room, in a good way.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

My wife and I spent one night in Xining waiting to connect with the train to Lhasa. The Jinjaing is an older hotel, it is reasonably well kept. Not spotless but is clean enough. The bathroom was walled in glass which was a bit weird. I'm fairly liberal but I did not understand why actions that are usually private shoud be semi public. The mattress needed replacing as there seemed to be a "honeymoon slope" leading to a very cosy sleep. Even though the info said the hotel had AC we did not find any indication that was the case. It was not hot when we were in Xining so opening the windows sufficed for us. The staff was quite nice but spoke less English then we did Chinese. We still managed quite well with a lot of laughing, both sides of the conversations tried very hard. While in China the one meal each day I did not enjoy was breakfast. The breakfast here was mostly Chinese but I did find enough things of interest that I could start the day satiated.
