Reviewed March 21, 2012

The room was comfortable. The breakfast was adequate and catered for both western and eastern visitors. The evening buffet is good. Very few staff speak English. Choice of drinks and the service at the bar is bad. Many Chinese restaurants in the area. Across the street are two good ones. A hotpot restaurant on the first floor of the mall, and the other on the right hand corner of the mall building, ground floor.
Use the pedestrian crossing to the right of the hotel exit and carry straight on down the side street. After about 200m you will see a Home Inn hotel on your right Attached to that is the Soho Bar. A big lively bar with western music and good atmosphere.

Above average hotel, but in a great location. Central to restaurants, shops, buses, etc. Good service as well.

Room Tip: Great location

We booked a room at this hotel based on its lofty ranking but we seriously overpaid. The hotel's name is confusing -- it is Sanwang on Tripadvisor but San Want in most other places. Based on our stay, the facility's top ranking is bewildering; perhaps other hotels in Xining are even worse! A rural two star motel near a US Interstate typically has better amenities and costs one third as much. The Sanwang's friendly staff made us feel welcome, but communication in English was a problem. Our high-floor room was sparsely furnished, the bed was thin, and the carpet and windows were dirty. Our room was on the quiet side so we slept well following a day of traveling. Still, it would have been nice if the hotel had lived up to it's ranking. Xining, the capital of Qinghai province, is located at a high altitude. With its clean air and very friendly people, the city is a major summer vacation spot for the Chinese. Xining is growing at a ridiculously rapid pace. Hundreds, if not thousands of construction cranes dominate the city's landscape. I can only hope that a few of those cranes are helping build some modern new hotels.
