We had the best hotel experience in this place while traveling in China for 2 weeks. This place is one of a kind. It's super clean and quiet. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. There are 5 rooms in this place and there is a roof top lounge area where you can hang out. I love that it's surrounded...

Such a beautiful part of china, rich in food, culture and sight seeing, So much to see and do in the Turpan area, it truly is spectacular, But as typical of most china Don't expect above 3 star service in anything, do your research before you go….

One of the best boutique hotels in Xinjiang. The rooms are comfortable, and the vineyard setting is beautiful. The owner speaks good English and is very helpful arranging a car to explore etc. The breakfast is a little quirky ... but overall very good!

Posting up amid the grape arbors and enjoying a couple days of calm while we visited around Turpan was the perfect cap set up for us by Old Road Tours, with whom we saw Xinjiang.

The boutique five-room hotel is lovely. The setting, amidst a grape arbor, adds to the serenity of the place, though it is a drive – by taxi or one’s own car – from the city. Breakfast is included with the room, and other meals – very tasty Uighur food – are available if ordered a couple of hours in advance....

Thank you for your kind comments. yes a near 100% occupancy for several months has hindered rectification of the small housekeeping issues. But there is every intention to correct these as soon as capacity allows. As you allude, a further 12 rooms and a larger restaurant/shop will be added this autumn - although bookings are already strong for next year.

Cosy hotel in a lovely enviroment. Nice staff and great food, the best I had in China. Still dreaming about those noodles and chicken with peanuts and peppers. The place is easy to reach and close to Emin minaret.

We arrived early (overnight train to Turpan, so no real choice) and, understandably, our room was not ready. However, there are no toilet facilities available outside of the guest rooms and this really needs to be rectified given the train timetables. The WiFi is poor and needs to be upgraded. It works fairly OK in the open space and dining...
