Howard Johnson is a beautiful hotel. The room was attractive and spacious with all amenities. The bathroom was really nice. Great shower. I found the wifi worked well in my room. In fact this was the only hotel I stayed in in Shanxi province where I could get wifi reception on my tablet. The only meal I had in the... More

It is Howard Johnson and it offers what is expected from Howard Johnson. We had no wifi in room but someone came to install a plug which gives very good wifi in room. So, I guess it is upon request or depends on the package purchased. The rooms are adequate and we ate breakfast and dinner in their buffet restaurant.... More

Hotel is clean and rooms are relatively spacious. Wifi at lobby lounge is much stronger than the one in room. There's supposedly a good restaurant around the corner of the hotel which we did not visit. Breakfast buffet was reasonably good. Strangely the lobby lounge did not serve local beer! Staff service was generally good.

I was disappointed in the hotel. The location is ideal but there isn't wifi in tr rooms and the staff doesn't speak but one-two words of English which made it very frustrating. My shower leaked all over and my room temperature was a bit chilly( they did supply extra blankets). Bar on main level too chilly to drink. Restaurant was... More

My sister and I stayed here in April, 2014 and while our rooms were large with lots of amenities; they were shabby. The carpets were dirty and the furniture was more than "dinged" up. The lobby is large, light and inviting but disguises what we found in our rooms. We arrived late and were leaving early so didn't ask to... More

We went to Datong by train after our Beijing tour. Check—in in about 10 pm, was quick. Our room was big and cosy, with nice view of the ancient city walls in lights. Breakfast was fine. The staffs were friendly, but their spoken English were just ok. Over all, it needs some improvements, however, is still a nice choice. Thank... More

I stayed at this hotel in early August basically to rest! The hall is very big, very opulent for Chinese standards and the rooms are also very well equipped! We had 2 queen beds along with a very big room and bathroom. Everything was cleaned, except from a bit of sewer smell, which I'll find out it's a common standard... More

The hotel advertises several restaurants, but really there are only 2 with mediocre food (Japanese, Korean, and Chinese dishes only). Very few staff members speak English and it was very hard to communicate. Clogged drain, moldy bathroom, items missing from our rooms, etc. THe rooms are big, and that is the only plus. The hallways are very dark,elevators very slow.... More
