Qinghai is an extremely poor region of China so it is best to keep your expectations low when traveling in this area. I stayed at the Huang He Hotel for a night on my way to Yushu and was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is just a couple of years old and it located in the middle of town. The rooms were spacious and clean, had 24 hour hot water and electricity and the breakfast was decent. I absolutely would stay here again.
