Best location in town
Loulan is the name of an antic city located not far from Korla. I stayed there in the 13th floor (they are not superstitious here! Me not as well, by the way. . . ). This hotel is located on the Northern side of the great square, which is optimal fort visiting the city and getting around. They have an external lift, which is nice when going to your room, you have a view over the city.
They have a nice (Chinese) breakfast buffet; I did not have dinner here, and nothing more can be told: it is not expensive for the comfort and service you get. The shower system is a bit strange, and I had no bath tub in my bathroom (I never take a bath, only shower, anyway!). Just a little bit noisy (had to choose between sleeping with open window and hearing noise, or close the window, which I do not like!), and I had the privilege to hear the early morning music for the people making their gym. Ah, and two times, late at night (12 or even 1 am, not sure as I wake up like a zombie) I had calls from female voices which I did not at all understand. . . A Chinese colleague explained me with great laugh, it was very common to receive “massage” calls in many Chinese hotels! I retrospectively think if I only would have replied with my more than very limited Chinese “shi” (yes), what would have happened. . . Well nothing bad probably, just one misunderstanding more. . . .
Overall good stay at Lulan Hotel!
