I recently stayed at the Hami Binguan (Hami Hotel) on a business trip to Hami. It was recommended by a local business associate as the best place in town to stay, as there aren't many good options around Hami.
The setting for the hotel is very nice, with lots of big trees and gardens, and it backs onto a small park along a creek. It is located at the end of a dead-end road, so no traffic noise at all - very peaceful location. The hotel is located about 1km (10min walk) from the city center, but it is a nice walk along the tree-shaded lanes. There are a few mini-marts and restaurants in the immediate hotel area. BTW - the hotel location on the map is wrong - I will look into getting this fixed.
The room was decent, roomy, typical Chinese business style with bland furnishings. The room was a bit dark due to big trees outside my window but it was comfortable nonetheless. The carpet was a bit stained and the room had a faint smell of cigarette smoke, but not too bad. The beds were hard but comfortable enough and there were a few rips in the sheets. The AC didn't work all that well, but it kept the room cool enough for sleeping. It was clean, quiet, and I had a good sleep. The bathroom was on the small side but everything worked fine - except there was no toilet paper and I unfortunately found this out a few minutes too late! There was a good, fast internet connection but you have to rent the connecting cord for 10RMB (unless you have your own). Bottled water was provided in the fridge.
Service was pretty ordinary and we had to quibble with the staff upon check-out as they tried to overcharge us, but we got it sorted out in the end. As usual in China, the customer is always wrong. No English spoken here. The free breakfast was fairly average, just typical Chinese fare.
Overall I felt this hotel to be average value for the price (about 300RMB, I think). I gave it a fairly high rating as it is the best hotel that I've found in town. I will continue to stay here in the future and would recommend it to other travellers.
