Poor location, difficult to find public transport, even hardly to find the taxi. The lobby, guest room are huge, very impressive, but the room's maintenance are so disappointed - dusty below the washbasin in the bath room, every coner in the bed room. You can't find the staff when you need help in the evening after 9pm and the morning... More

The room is spacious, 66 sqm. The decoration is grand, typical northern China rich people style. Price is very good. Unfortunately, carpet is dirty! All lobby, doorway green plants are faked! The door to balcony is locked, you need to ask them to open it for you! Need to walk a mile to the breakfast restaurant. Many local food that... More

The hotel is very nice. It has everything you could need at a hotel. The only thing it doesn't have is anything near by. Not being native to China I like to walk around and explore after my work is done but this hotel is not near anything by foot. I don't speak Chinese so it would be very difficult... More

I am a regular guest at this property, and it keeps surprising me on its amenities. A one night stay does not do it justice, there is so much to its grounds it will take you a couple of hours just to walk around it. You do need some private transport if you want to stay here, but it is... More

You go to Taiyuan and you would expect some well built but somehow grey hotel. In fact this was a total surprise. Marble and columns everywhere, a room bigger than the average apartment in town, windows in the restaurant higher than the full size of a giraffe , acquarius with lovely fishes staring at you. But most, the number and... More

The hotel location is not so far from airport, it takes 15-20 minutes by car. The lobby is very impressive with its decoration and structure. And the room is super big for business traveller like me. It would be very convenience for staying with family because it has a big sofa and terrace, big swimming pool, but I don't think... More

We stayed at the Chateau Star River hotel in Taiyuan for one night in October 2013, mainly because we had to catch an early morning flight from Taiyuan to Hong Kong, after spending several days touring the Pingyao area. Chateau Star River is a fairly new hotel and immaculately clean. Our room was huge, and there was even a small... More

The whole hotel is more like a garden park, very beautiful and graceful, a lot of European construction and style, lobby is nice, rooms are all suits, big and comfortable, banquet room looks very fantastic, everything looks so nice here, the best hotel in Taiyuan.

The year-old Chateau Star River is part of a massive development that encompasses the hotel and an adjoining residential apartment complex which is still under construction. Restaurants and other public areas appear expansive and somewhat labyrinthine but the hotel's shopping arcade was not yet open during our stay. No expense is being spared by the Guangzhou-based developer to create an... More
