A vaguely Tibetan themed hotel in the downtown area. Very friendly staff and usually someone with some English.
We don't often eat dinner in the hotel preferring to venture out but a late return from an excursion meant we needed to eat at the hotel given that many restaurants close around 22:30. Very reasonable prices in the restaurant compared to many tourist hotels with service being some of the quickest we experienced and hot food actually hot! Be careful not to over order! Most dishes serve two if you add a bowl of rice. Two dishes plus rice per couple is plenty. The Snow beer at 20 Yuan was good value.
The main downside to the hotel is a lack of attention to detail with a safe that didn't work and the need for a ‘deep clean’ in the various areas of the building.
When a watch was left at the hotel on departure a member of staff drove to the railway station to deliver it – service above and beyond!
General notes on Chinese hotels
Chinese make little distinction between the type of food eaten at different meal times. Expect cooked vegetable and meat dishes at breakfast.
Milk is not often available automatically with tea or coffee. You may need to ask; try to make it clear if you want it hot or cold – good luck with that! :-)More
