“Decent Hotel”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We came to to Jiayuguan as part of a hiking tour. This was the nicest hotel in

Pro
-clean room
-quiet - close to main street but quiet area of Jiayuguan


Con
- after 8pm, there is no food in the hotel. No room service.
- bed is very hard
- lack of double beds
- air con didn't work
- can't choose non-smoking room as it doesn't exist in China almost
- no wifi in the hotel. Only internet is in the room and is basically an ethernet connection


I think that they overestimated the tourism that would come to Jiayuguan. Skeleton staff in the hotel.

We spent only one night in this hotel. The hotel is luxurious chines style, that is with much shining marble and large reception. The rooms are good, with an exceptionally comfortable bed. One of the best I have had in (many) Chinese hotels of this class. The Western breakfast was good. Service friendly and helpful. Our room had a view on a sdleepy living quarter, but you could observe daily life developing in the early morning.

The Holiday Plaza belongs to the Holiday Inn chain. We chose this hotel after reading a few reviews (most of them are in chinese) and weren't quite sure about it but it turned out to be a good choice. It looks like a new hotel with impressing marble lobby. The room is large, bed confy but a bit hard, bathroom with amenities, complimentary bottle of water.
Although breakfast was included, we didn't take it since we left very early on both days to go to Zhangye and Dunhuang by train. Instead we made use of the electric kettle/cups to make our instant coffee, to drink with our snacks. I strongly advise to take with you instant coffee (if you're addicted to coffee) and snacks throughout the silk road trip!
The hotel is close to the train station (but not walking distance) and it's not in the city center, so you'll need a taxi, which is cheap.
The girl at the front desk didn't speak english as most people in town. If you're traveling by yourself, make sure you speak some mandarin or have someone with you who speaks.
We had a huge problem to get a taxi at 4:30am to go to the train station, since the front desk told us she could not help us, they didn't have any taxi phone number, which we thought ridiculous. We had to stop a taxi by ourselves, with another passenger inside, in the middle of a desert night! It was stressful but we took our train. It was possible only because my friend speaks mandarin.
The hotel was empty (low season) and we were the only westerners in it.
All we wanted was a hotel with a good room/bed to go back to after a busy day of visiting and traveling and it didn't disappoint. Visiting the western end of the Great Wall and the Jiayuguan fortress was worth it!
If you need to check out very early, reserve a taxi the night before:)
