Of course when you're paying in the 200rmb a night range you're not going to get luxury, and in Urumqi as a foreigner your options are limited. Green Tree is in a good location, the rooms are clean and well equipped, if not beautiful (there are some cracks in the plaster on the walls) and the staff are helpful and non-stanoffish. Since they're a chain you pretty much know what you're going to get. Our only complaint was that our room was a bit small, but we weren't spending a lot of time in the room anyhow. This is a basic 3 star Chinese hotel. People with experience traveling in China and know what to expect from Chinese hotels won't be surprised -- pleasantly or unpleasantly -- by their experience here.
I made reservations ahead of time on the Green Tree website and although our train was late coming in, Green Tree called and made sure we still wanted the room and held it for us until we finally arrived at around midnight.
I have 2 small kids so hostels aren't always an option anymore. For travelers that are on a budget but don't want the hostel atmosphere Green Tree is a solid choice.
