Reviewed 22 July 2016 via mobile

Spent 2 nights here and was so glad to find a spacious room, clean comfy bed and a good shower. I was a little miffed they didn't provide complimentary bottled water...but they more than made up for it with the very thoughtful housekeeping...to the extent of washing the pair of socks I had left beside my sneakers. Impressed.

One thing we liked is the breakfast. It's more on the Chinese side but the taste was very delicious and authentic. Datong's food is well known and our breakfast confirmed it. Recommend the daoxiaomian, among many others. The room was nice and the price was very affordable with breakfast included.

Good price for nice familly room with breakfast included but no one at the reception speaks english! So you won't get any help here. We gave our reservation all was there (2 room for 2 nights, dates) first night was OK just to hot in the rooms - there was no way to lower temperature. Next day after we came back to hotel rooms were locked. Hotel checked us in only for one night... We hade to go down, try to explain for next 15 minutes, pay extra deposit for the next night. It's not easy whe you are with children.

Room Tip: In Deluxe Family Suit one room has no windows. Bathroom is small.

We stayed for 3 nights and most of the staff doesn't speak english. We tried to order food but the room service attendant didn't speak english. Until we found the customer relationship manager Victor, we had a hard time trying to communicate at the hotel. But Victor was very helpful in every little thing. We need to go to a supermarket, he got the cab, told him to take us there an wait for us. From that day on, everything we needed Victor was there to help. So if you go to Datong, look for him. He was very pleased to have an opportunity to practice.

Room Tip: Hotel looks like a business hotel for local ones. Not many tourists, specially westerns.

We visited Datong from 21st- 23rd December 2014.

On the 1st night of our stay at this hotel, we were complaining about how hot the hotel room is and the svs staff heard it and brought us barley drinks that she brewed to help cool us. The next day I left my torned trousers on the desk in the morning, wanting to sew it in the evening after we come back from our trip to yungang and the hanging monastery. We were amazed that my pants were already sown by their svs staff when we were back and she left the note so as we were not surprised that some mysterious person has done the job.
Amazing service and kudos to the mgt of this hotel.
