We got to this hotel after 2 weeks in Xinjiang, where it is often a challenge to find good accommodation up to Western standards.
This hotel in Dunhuang represented a major shift in quality. The hotel is generally up to the expectations of a good vacation spot: clean, spacious rooms, nice hotel decor, free wifi, several amenities and pleasant courtyards where to stroll.
The real added value, though, is the location in close proximity to the dunes (very tall dunes). You can enjoy your breakfast, your dinner at the cafe', or a beer, with a gorgeous view (of course this becomes a temptation not to go into the city for dinner).
I recommend staying here.
