This was my third stay (this time from October 31st til Nov. 2nd) at the Yinlong Hotel and I was never disappointed although I would rather prefer to rate the hotel with 4 instead of 5 stars. Since the weather was cold (it snowed one night which is unusual for mid autumn) I enjoyed the fresh air and strolling alround the South River park.

The Yinlong is a very good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Its location is top just opposite the South river, a big public square and the park. I was given a nice and spacious room on the 30th floor from which I had an excellent view over park and river. The room was quiet - no noise level from neighbors or from the floor. During my stay I had breakfast and once dinner in the western restaurant on the ground floor. Food was tasty and there was a good selection of meat, fish, pastry, noodles, bread and fruits.

In my opinion the hotel can be recommended without ifs and buts. I'm sure everybody enjoys the stay after several weeks on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau.

Room tip: Try to get a room on one of the top floors.

The guide told us that It is the only five star hotel in the city. It is very beautiful, the rooms are clean and cozy. The only problem is that the walls are very thin, so you 'have to ' listen to what your neighbor is watching on TV. I had dinner at Paris Time. I enjoy eating in restaurant with the buffet system because as nobody speaks English it is easier to choose your food.
But you have to go early because at 20.30 hs they start to take away the plate's sign and clean the room.

Recently stayed here one night prior to catching the train to Lhasa. Room was clean and well appointed and it was an easy walk from the hotel across the river to a shopping area including a supermarket. Good range of options for buffet breakfast. Overall a pleasant surprise

We wanted to go and visit Qing Hai Lake and we had to go to Xi Ning first. So I looked through the hotels in Xi Ning and Yinlong would be the best there. I have read some reviews from other people saying how average it is and how poor the service is, but now I have stayed there and I can share my experiences there.

A super busy place it is first of all! Quick check in, nice rooms and very comfortable beds!! My room had a great view of the central park of the city where you see people jogging and exercising etc. The location is unbeatable. Breakfast is catered to more Chinese than western, but they have fried eggs, bread, toast, cereal, fresh fruits..not the best coffee in the world but they have it. A nice gym they have as well.

We ordered pick up by hotel and then also used their car service through out out time there to Qinghai Lake and Taersi Monastery. The driver was very friendly and drove very carefully!!

The staff really don't speak much English. So if you don't speak Chinese you may have some frustration if anything goes wrong, but I speak Chinese so no problem at all.

It is about 200$US per night for a room, a bit expensive!! But that is the best hotel of Xi Ning. I would stay there again if go to Xi ning again.

Room tip: Non smoking rooms, park facing away from the elevators.

I can't complain about the room - great view to the huge park - you can watch all kinds of dancing in the morning. Good bedding, but overall it is a Chinese 4* and the service is more or less non existent since nobody understands a word of English. Which is a PROBLEM if the toilet doesn't work but in the end we managed by pointing at it. a local agency booked for us and we were surprised when they handed us the bill for 2600 rmb which is about 300 Euros which is for what you get a scandal. But it is still the best in Xining, therefore if you want to sleep well you need to put up with certain thing. enough outlets in room yes. the fridge was locked and the girl who came when we pushed roomservice emptied the contents out and left - which was kind of funny. I rang again to order for a snack which I thought was easy since the menue was in English too, but 3 items I chose were 'mayo=not available' - after have an hour a noodle dish arrived and the waiter had already the change for 100 rmb in his hand - he wasn't lucky, I didn't have a 100 and wrote my room number on the bill and sent him off which greatly upset him - if looks could kill. BUT in the morning at checkout - there was the bill all of a sudden. Breakfast with a lot of choices but mostly chinese since I guess most guests are chinese at least when we were there.

Room tip: You can try but they won't understand you : park view
