This was the best hotel of my jaunt through Xinjiang, and my family and I had a great experience. We were lucky to be given a lovely, big corner room on the 28th floor with a stunning view of the Tianshan mountains and downtown Urumqi. The fast and reliable plug-and-play broadband internet access was very welcome. Little touches like a turn-down service and bite-sized Kit Kats placed on our bedspreads while we were out provided a pleasant surprise and reminded us what we were paying for. Additional pluses from the hotel included RMB100 dining vouchers usable at the hotel restaurants and single-scoop ice-cream vouchers at the hotel's Izakaya Japanese restaurant. A very clean, professionally-run tourist/ business hotel with welcoming and efficient service (staff speak very fast, though!).

The rack rate is rather steep by Xinjiang standards but we booked through Ctrip and got a very good deal. I guess it helped as well that we were just there in June, before the peak season hit.

Urumqi is one of the farthest, if not the farthest, point of land from an ocean, yet this hotel which clearly is targeting Hong Kong business travellers (the Cantonese word "hoi" is "hai" in Mandarin Chinese and means "ocean") still decided to give it a fish theme--from the wall-sized aquarium in the lobby (which attracted little local children who pounded on the glass terrorizing the fish) to the "western" buffet that was anything but western and featured fish in every dish (I'm sorry, but did they have to put tiny, newborn eels even in the fried rice?). Ill-advised fish theme aside, the hotel is OK. The room was good, the bathroom less-so with a shower-in-the-tub, but the $20 double Gordon's gin martini was world standard. There were even flower petals in the toilet (which after squatting in desert sand dunes for a couple of days was a very refreshing sight). This hotel really tries to get it right with its numerous restaurants, karaoke night spot, bowling centre, health club, sauna and massage facilities, etc. and China Tourism has given it 5-stars, but we gave it only 3-4 stars during our stay. With a standard room rack rate at 1200 RMB for a single and 1400 for a double (superior rooms 1300 and 1500 RMB respectively), we'll try another hotel next time we're in Urumqi.

The Hoi Tak is a wonderful hotel. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The hotel is in a great location. Very central to the downtown area. We had a great view of the people's square. Roomservice was great and very reasonable. There were some draw backs though. The bed was definately on the hard side, and the western buffet breakfast was certainly lacking "western" items.

China Tourism rates this a 5 star hotel, but it's not on the same level as those in Beijing or Shanghai. Although I'm used to hard Chinese beds, the beds here were the hardest I've found in China. The TV was small (CNN, ESPN and HBO in English), and the room was also on the small side for a 5 star. I was surprised when we approached the concierge on Sunday and found he didn't speak English, but he did offer to summon someone to help right away, and we didn't see him on duty again, so I assume he was just filling in that night. The breakfast buffet was below average: Western and Chinese, but on the Western side there were no pancakes/french toast; fruit was both fresh and canned; and minimal pastry, not very good. Eggs and omelets were cooked to order. For Chinese, a good selection of congee, also noodles and rice and one choice of dumpling. We also ate lunch and dinner there one time each: the Sunday brunch (which I think is also the regular lunch) was excellent, the dinner was not very good. I made the mistake of booking the room directly with the hotel; if I'd used eLong it would have been 60Y per night cheaper, and they wouldn't match eLong's rate. It wasn't a bad stay, but I'd look at another hotel next time.
