“Yuyuan Listed as 4 star, maybe 3 star?”
Reviewed 2 March 2008

I would say this is an average hotel for a major city. Stayed one night. The lobby is clean. Dimly lit in the hallways. Dimly lit overall. You can tell it is an older property and as such is starting to show its age in the carpet and trim of the room.

Also it was winter and the heater could not get the room warmed as much as I would have liked.

Ate in the lower level bar restaurant. Food was very good though somewhat limited selection, likely due to it being the bar of course.

TV has 6 channels 2 are english BBC news and Cinemax.

Very upscale department store shopping right across the street, but unfortunately the poor exchange rate on the dollar made it hard to find a bargain during my visit.

Taiyuan is an sprawling city and seems to be in transition. There are countless high rise apartment complexes going up next to delapidated older style apartment buildings. Surprisingly many developments appeared abandoned altogether especially near the airport. The airport is small and a new terminal is under construction. Departing flight area was well lit and heated. Baggage claim dimly lit and no heat. Very odd. There are very few westerners in the city so it is not uncommon to be stared at, but you get used to it. Take great care in crossing the street. If you have never been to China you will learn that yielding the right of way to a pedestrian in a cross walk is a foreign concept so be aware of cars, bikes, and scooters coming your direction.
