This is also called the Dunhuang Hotel, not to be confused with at least two other "Dunhuang Hotels".
There are several sections and we were in the newer one. Usual large Chinese standard room, two beds with firm but comfortable mattresses. Average cleanliness bathroom but everything operating well including AC.
500Yuans during a conference.
Other conference attendees were in the older section, rooms do not always have windows and are smaller and mustier.
Free internet and breakfast.
The hotel is very well located close to the center of town, the night market, the restaurants and bike rentals.
Went for a drink at the Silk Road Hotel, with a view to the dunes, much more modern (but I did not visit the rooms) and while it is far from town it has a free shuttle.

Room Tip: ask for the new section

Definitely, it's not a guest house! It's just a traditional Chinese hotel, with double rooms and private bathroom. The price is a little bit expensive even for hotel. The room is up to standard, but not really worth the price. The location is good, it is close to the Dunhuang museum, and bus station and lots of shops around. If you don't want to walk around looking for places to stay, you can stay here, but, again, it's not a guest house.

Its centrally located, close to the bus station, the night markets, many restaurants. The room was small but clean and functional.

It has a large bathroom which doesn’t have a bath tub, only a simple curtain, so be aware that its one of those rooms where the shower wets the whole bathroom floor.

We paid 258 RMB/night for a double-bed room booked via C-Trip and that included breakfast for two people. The breakfast was not so convenient as it was at the restaurant down the street and started only after 7am. The breakfast is very Chinese, nothing western, not even a cup of coffee (actually you will be looking long and hard to find anything remotely like a cup of Coffee anywhere in Dunhuang).

The location is good for going to the Night Market which is a hive of activity in Summer - including some great outdoor BBQs. Its also convenient for catching a bus to Mogao Caves, or even Jiayuguan or further afield from the bus station which is only 500m away.

When booking a hotel in Dunhuang, there are so many hotels nowadays, however one needs to be careful with the names, since every hotel is called "Dunhuang ....", this one is FanDian which can be easily mistaken with BinGuan as both probably have the same name in English!

This was a great hotel, Chinese Govt owned I believe. We had new rooms in a new block very well appointed and comfortable.
The hotel is large so an underpass takes you form one area to another.
The location was great, walking distance to the town centre the restaurants and the night markets.A perfect tourist location.
Breakfasts were good we didn't have any other hotel meals.
