Silk Road Dun Huang Hotel
The Silk Road Dun Huang Hotel
One of the oldest and the best hotel in Dun Huang. Build in 1995, rated 4 starts. Very interesting design like a fortress. The room is quite old and a bit small, but still well facilitated.
No swimming pool.
Unique Quality: walking distance to Yue Ya spring, and next to Singing sand mountain.
Directions: South of the city center - 10 mins by TAXI
After leaving Dun Huang, we spent a night at Silk Road Dun Huang Hotel. This hotel has a sprawling complex and infuses traditional Chinese architectural concepts into its design. Although only a few floors high, it has lift/elevator access and reasonably large, comfortable rooms.
One particular thing that stood out was the food-- what a variety! Each dish was well seasoned and well prepared also. All in all, I'd say that this is a great hotel to set up camp after a tiring journey. Recommended!
The Silk Road Hotel is built in the style of a Tang Dynasty palace and so looks amazing.
There is a roof top bar and Chinese and Western Restaurants. Maybe it was because we were there in low season, but we didn't actually get a choice of restaurant. Breakfast (a rather disappointing buffet, in which the hot dishes were rather lukewarm and congealed) was served in the Western restaurant, but at dinner time we were directed to the Chinese one. The food there was very good though (although we didn't try the 'assorted slivers of camel hump')
There is also a spa offering various sorts of massage, which I can't vouch for as I didn't try it, a business centre with internet access and a souvenir shop.
This hotel was booked as a part of a package so I can't comment on the actual room rate.
Unique Quality: The hotel information folder contained a list of rules in addition to the usual description of amenities. These included:
