The hotel advertises several restaurants, but really there are only 2 with mediocre food (Japanese, Korean, and Chinese dishes only). Very few staff members speak English and it was very hard to communicate. Clogged drain, moldy bathroom, items missing from our rooms, etc. THe rooms are big, and that is the only plus. The hallways are very dark,elevators very slow....

It is a hotel of a very international brand, but every detail indicates it is a typical Chinese hotel. It is not strange because Datong itself is not an international city. We booked a room with two king beds - which was the main reason we chose this hotel. The room is big and clean. Hotel is not far from...

After driving to Datong on our motorbikes in bad weather condition it was a pleasure to arrive a this hotel. Well managed, clean, frienly, close to the city center, good service and quick something nice to eat and a fresh cold beer. The restaurants are good, the rooms are nice.

Dont be fooled by the fact that this has an American name and is a five star. The staff don't speak ANY English at all. We ordered room service by pointing to the menu. The orders often came with missing items and we wee shocked when the waiters babbled at us in Chinese and making a fuss when we tried...

We stayed for two nights while visiting the grottoes in Datong (highly recommended btw). We were impressed by the huge modern and clean rooms - a respite from the conditions of Datong as a city. And thought the rooms were good value for money at around AU$60 - $70. However, we had a number of bad experiences with staff. If...

huge room, lovely bed, breakfast ok but nothing special. Staff was very helpful booking taxis to sights, confirming flight, & offering help. Location easy for transfers to sights/ airport, but not much nearby. (taxi to city center was approx $1.50 US, 6-8 minute)

We had high expectations of this hotel after reading such great reviews. The hotel corridoor was dark (less lighting, dark wood panels on the sides and dark carpets). Had really hard time with the language problem and room service. What was sweet was that they came to the room to take our order two times,as we couldn't understand each other....

Overall, really happy with this hotel. We decided to splurge a bit, since we were only in Datong for 2 days.The service was excellent, and staff were really helpful. Would recommend checking out the buffets on level 28 for meals, we had a breakfast and lunch there and found there was an excellent selection of Western and Chinese food. There...
