Have a very comfortable two night stay at the hotel. It's quite far away from the main attraction like baazar and CBD. Few good local restaurant nearby and quite close to subway. The reception service is quite slow
This hotel is now known as Universal International Hotel, or U-Hotel. The twin-room that we got was spacious with a bathtub and large bathroom. The lighting was good and there were ample facilities. Contrary to my expectations, there was a BBC channel. Breakfast was good too. There were plenty of choices (for Asians) and the restaurant was pretty amazing. Loved the warm soya milk and croissants. The only gripe I have was the security check and scanner placed at the hotel entrance. Be prepared to pass through the checks each time you enter the hotel. Security checks seem to be common everywhere in Xinjiang.
Been traveling in Silk Road in Western China for the last two weeks and trying to stay in the best hotel each city got to offer. So far this is the best. Starting from Lanzhou onwards, this is closest to true near 5 stars. Mind you, this did not say much. Do not expect this to be like Peninsular in Beijing or Ritz Carlton in Pudong Shanghai. But after you have stayed in some losers in Zhangye or Jiayuguan, you will think you have reached Nirvana. The service is good and they tried to find me a person who can speak some limited English whenever I talk to them. Dinner and breakfast buffet are good. Bedsheets are crisp and thick. I was told that hotel was recently redecorated. It goes by the new name of U-Hotel. You will have trouble finding it in TripAdvisor whom I think should have updated the name and information. One word of extreme caution. The air conditioning in the room is not very effective and have difficulty keeping it at 22 degrees Celsius. In October now in Urumqi, this is not a major issue. But if you going to Silk Road in summer, which you shouldn't, I will advise you not to take a west facing room if you want to survive the fierce afternoon sun. …
The Huanqi Hotel has some of the most luxurious rooms I have ever seen in China (12 years living, working & traveling in the Middle Kingdom). Tasteful décor in every way. Bathrooms well appointed. TV English language selections were adequate. Location in the City Centre near the Medical University.
It is a modernized western hotel within the city The lobby is nicely decorated with a huge glass dome,with a ten foot gold color painting on the wall The room is nicely decorated Some of the guests told us their room is too hot and there is no air condition,they were told to open the windows(though there is none to open!! We were lucky the AC works The breakfast buffet have lots of selection However most of the food though it was left on a heated tray which reads "100" but the food contents are Luke warm or cold There is not enough staff to handle the huge volume of group tourists e.g.to fill up your coffee,clean the table etc I order a noodle soup and watch the chef bring the noodle and dipped in the hot water bath for literally less than five seconds and told me it is ready The concierge offers excellent service The bed,pillows ,and bedding are very comfortable They have two options Of taking baths....the traditional bathtub or the California shower heads…
Hotel quite new, modern and clean. Big room, silent and well organised. The breakfast is for everybody: you can have Chinese, European or American food. Personnel prepared, even if not all of them speak English. Good trade off between quality and price.
This hotel is called the Universal Hotel Urumqi now. A grand hotel with a luxurious room, with floor to ceiling windows in both the bedroom and bathrooom. The room was very hot, the air conditioning didn’t work and the fan moved the hot air around. We left the windows open over night to cool the room with the cool outdoor air, but if anything the air was blowing out. In the morning I asked our guide to explain at the front desk that we wanted to move to a different room if they could not repair the air conditioning. Front desk staff assured him that a portable air conditioner would be installed in the room to cool it off during the day. The guide called during the day and confirmed that all was OK. When we got back very late to the room, the air conditioner had been delivered to the room, but never plugged in and the room was as hot as ever. The writing on the machine was Chinese and no English instructions were provided. We put the machine on a setting that seemed to be « fan » and never figured out how to get « cool ». The machine made a sound of small cartoon animals chatting that was muted when « fan » was on high. We slept on top of the bed on our second and last night. When our guide asked about the heat in the room we also got him to ask for instant coffee packets, as there was only tea. We were told that the coffee was very black and I said fine, we take the coffee black, no sugar, anyway. The coffee packets left in the room had powdered milk and sugar mixed in and the coffee was undrinkable. Our neighbours checked in late, let their three boys use the hallway as a shouting playground, until I told her that this was quite unreasonable after 11 p.m. There were a lot of strange-looking options at the dinner buffet – the red wine was included and generously topped up – while some staff shouted from the dining area, over our heads into the not-so-nearby kitchen. Not relaxing.…
The hotel room is very fancy, good for the lovers. The room is clean and big. The breakfast is OK. There are several restuarants nearby. It is not located in the really busy area, not easy to get the taxi.
We enjoyed spending two nights at the Universal Hotel Urumqi. Security is good and staff is very helpful, even though there is some struggle with English which is to be expected in this part of China. The hotel has nice decor and we were able to order room service a few times. Very good food and quick service. Hotel is on the north side of town, so not close to the Grand Bazaar should you choose to visit, especially with the traffic. The standard rooms are a little small compared to other hotel rooms in China. It is one of the few hotels that allow children in the same room, if that is a concern. We do recommend this hotel.
Nice clean professional hotel with strong international cousine, would be better if they had better options on local Uygur cousine as well. Some staff speak english not all. Free internet . Would definetly recommend for international traveller, safe and clean
