“Standard and adequate hotel”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This is a hotel at best 3 stars with western standard with all the necessary amenities. Complimentary water with hot water pot, basic slippery, basic linen. Flatscreen TV with only local programs. Bathroom was clean but old and no sewage smell which is a major plus. Room size was OK, bed is hard for western standard. Overall, the room was clean and decent furnished.
Buffet breakfast was Chinese standard but provided coffee! Staffs were friendly. Wifi in the room was adequate, sometimes surprising fast. Overall it is an OK hotel for short stays. This is one of the best hotel in Karamay according to our guide.

Photos on this website definitely flatter hotel rooms or were taken of the luxury rooms. Our room was clean and well organized. The beds were hard as we had anticipated. Linens were adequate, however, not luxury. We did have complimentary bottled water in our room and coffee/tea making facilities. TV was flat screen.

The bathroom gave a nice appearance until I closed the door. Unfortunately, the shower curtain was not waterproof and all of the finish on the door was pealing off. Our observation was that maintenance is not done to keep the rooms to a higher standard. Too bad.

Breakfast offered a variety of foods. Egg station was nice.

Wifi in lobby and breakfast room. Nice staff.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

Was quite surprised to see the ratings for this hotel, but then this is Western China. Stayed in the Bo Da Yindu Hotel for one night during the month of January, so the first thing I can be happy for is the fact that it was nice and warm, considering it was -20 deg C outside. Hotel check-in was very efficient and we where in our rooms within 1/2 hour. Rooms themselves are large, however they have seen better days. The carpet was pretty grubby, covered in stains and certainly could have done with a good wash. There was no in-room safe and no bottles of water in the room - not the best of things as you certainly don't want to have to drink the water from the tap. As mentioned in previous reviews, the beds are hard, very hard, but then that is something you get used to traveling around China.

Breakfast is buffet style in the lobby restaurant with a huge selection, and definitely enough there to cover all tastes.

All in all an adequate hotel to stay in, was my first visit to Karamay, so can;t compare it to others in the town.

My colleagues and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and we all got king beds. Room is really clean, exactly like shown in the photos. Sound proof in the room is excellent. Each room comes with LAN line (100Mbps) and wifi is only available at the lobby. There is none of the awful smell of sewage in the bathroom like in a lot of Chinese hotels, so I'm giving it a big thumbs up for that.

A draw back might be the bed is hard for most westerners and you can feel the springs but it's comfortable to me. But the bed sheets are really clean.

We had free breakfast everyday and it comes with a variety of western and chinese style food. Western would be the usual - eggs, sausages, bread, yogurt, apple and orange juice, milk, cereal and fruits. Coffee is instant coffee but very watery. Chinese would be vermicelli, congee, fried noodles, fried rice, egg in tomato soup.... pretty good for breakfast considering you're in the northwestern part of China.

Location is very good too. Taking a taxi from the hotel to the Karamay airport costs about 26RMB. There are plenty of restaurants and a supermarket.

Credit cards are welcome.

I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: For those who are used to soft mattress, don't be picky - it's really hard as in other hotel...
