The location is quite near most sites in the city and next to a large shopping mall.
The hotel is a highrise and many (if not all) rooms offer views and big windows. There are individual central ac/heaters in each room.
Free breakfast and reliable wired internet (cable provided - bring your own computer). The breakfast buffet is large but not too fancy. There is at least one restaurant and the lobby is big and nicely decorated. There is a bar as well.
English is spoken, a little, and the place has an upscale feel to it.
The rooms have a minibar, robes/slippers, electric kettle, shower, and are generally nice-looking. The linens are very clean and the amenities are sufficient.
The carpet was gross, clearly quite worn, and with a number of stains. The "easy chair" had seen much better days. The bed was comfortable and the hotel quiet.
You can smoke anywhere, including the elevator so you pretty much are always in the company of second-hand smoke.
It is pricey for Yinchuan, but not by Western standards. It's a good choice for this city.More
