“Too bad it isn't in a better location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Stayed at the Kempinski on a business trip to Yinchuan in Feb 2013. Great hotel, breakfast was excellent, room are spacious and has everything you need. Only drawback was the location. There isn't much to do around the hotel that is from a walking distance.

I attended an investment forum in Yinchuan and we were hosted at the Kempinski hotel, a bran new establishment in the city of Yinchuan in the province of Ningxia in the north west of China. The hotel is superb with lovely rooms with modern furnishings and beautifil design. The spa was a dream featuring a large indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam ath, jaccizi and all the necessary ameties. The restaurant Berlin offers a lavish buffet breakfast with a great variety of different cooking both Euroean and Asian with fresh exotic fruits and all kinds of breads and vienoiseries . For lunch and dinner, the house was wide and varied including all kinds of meat, poultry and fish and see food. It was a real delight. The service was excellent and a German cook was delightful and so proud to show all the good cuisine the hotel can offer including some delicious pastry and ice-creams. I could not revisit the temptation o discover a new labour: the taro ice-cream with a lavender colour. It was a true delight. Would certainly love to come back to stay and discover this beautiful province, home to the famous yellow river and part ofthe ancient silk route where east and west meet in a successful and mst interesting mix of cultures and traditions. It was most enjoyable indeed.

This is a very nice and modern hotel in Yinchuan. The location is great, so are the views. Definitely worth a stay. There are members of the staff who are Europeans and speak good English. The food is great at the Berlin Cafe downstairs. It is a mix of Chinese and western food. For us, the breakfast was not included and the buffet turned out quite expensive.

Room Tip: Choose the front facing rooms.

Stayed here for a night whilst on Business in Yinchuan, the hotel is really very nice and I would have given it Excellent (compared to other hotels in the area) if the electrical outlets worked, if the Internet was not so poor, and if they served pork bacon and sausages at breakfast! I realise this is a mainly muslim area of China.. but we shouldn't enforce our religious beliefs and food choices on travellers, come on Kempinski, you can get pork in Muslim countries in the middle east!
The room was nice.. the bed very comfortable..

I enjoyed a 7 day meeting at this hotel. Service, hotel and room were perfect. The only challenging bit is that staff speaks hardly English. However there is always a western person around to assist you and to translate. Local head of departments do speak English as well, but it takes always time to search for them. besides language barrier this is a true 5 star hotel in a fantastic location opposite the governmental building.

Room Tip: Book def rooms facing the governmental side.

Finding good western food is often a problem for me in China, but the Kempinski was up to satisfying even me. At breakfast (included in the tab) the chef cooked my eggs to order and got them right (over easy, sometimes difficult even in the States, where it's sometimes taken to mean uncooked on one side, incinerated on the other). They provided a wide choice of bread, rolls, and pastry as well as fruit and fruit juices, and real coffee. For lunch and dinner the choice was between buffet and a la carte; I found both excellent, and appreciated that staff often anticipated my needs. The room was well-designed, comfortable, and attractive. When we checked in the counter was mobbed. Waiting in the bar, I stood up and waved my arms and in an instant a young man named Benjamin was there, getting the keys for me and getting me and my luggage to our room. Benjamin, a recent hire, spoke fluent English. He was an English major in his home country, Mongolia. I have only high praise for the staff. Footnote: If you're not familiar with Yinchuan, make sure to get cabbed to Xiayu (Sand Lake). We were ferried to the Visitor Center/museum, rode camels to another dock, and a speedboat back to our cabbie. Also check out the petriglyphs, another side trip..

Good I have chosen this hotel due to its name affiliation to the Kempinski group. The food was great throuhout my stay (5 days), the service was attentive and the staff could converse with some limitation of course, in English. The room was grand and well designed. I felt safe at this hotel and would recommand without hesitation.
