Zhongfayuan Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel has a pretty good western restaurant (pizza is good and you can get beer and wine despite it being in the Muslim quarter, and fried eggs seemed to be available in the morning for breakfast generally] and good location close to the train station and across the road from a great supermarket (to the left of the hotel when you exit ) where you can get just about anything. Chinese tours to lake Qinghai leave from across the road towards the train station about 730 in the morning. See separate review. wi-Fi in the room and in the restaurant is good. The beds are hard like all beds in China unless you're staying in a five-star. The city main mosque is a short walk away. Little English is spoken although a woman who is a manager type in the western restaurant is the best and quite helpful.

Easy access from train station, and close to Muslim quarter (fun market to walk around). Excellent value - we booked online and paid 370 yuan for a triple suite (2 rooms with connecting door) including a breakfast buffet. Staff speak some English, enough to get by. Wifi is poor. Good heating.

Along with 4 colleagues I stayed 3 nights in this hotel and could not have been more pleased. It is conveniently located at a busy intersection and just a few blocks from the main train station. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well-equipped (incl. free wi-fi). The staff is both helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet is expansive, with more than a nod to Western palates. With all this at a very reasonable cost, it will be my "go to" hotel when visiting Xining in the future.

Well known hotel with big name among local residents, but really needs much more renovation to maintain its 4-star standing! Rooms and facilities look so old like 1990s or 1980s, but not even quaint - just out-dated... P.S. super full booking during summer peak season, be aware of room change without notice ahead!

We stayed here for 1 night before we left for Lhasa. Our agency snowlion tours booked us here. Hotel location was convenient. There are restaurants, fruits stands across the street. We took a triple and a double room. It was spacious, clean and quiet. The beds were comfy. We had free wifi access in our triple room as it had a router. The double room didn't have this option for some reason. The breakfast was mediocre. If you're not used to the typical chinese or tibetan plateau cuisine, you might not like it. They had boiled or scrambled eggs so that is an option for the picky eater.

This is a well-known, high-rise hotel located on a busy street in Xining. We stayed here for a couple of days to acclimatize while we were waiting to take the train to Lhasa. The rooms were fine, nice beds, Western toilets, shower, bath, internet access, etc. The staff was friendly and efficient and you could usually find one that spoke good English. The location is near a couple of large, interesting mosques and within walking distance to the river and the local market. There are plenty of banks, restaurants & stores in the area. Xining does not have a lot to offer as to tourism, but it is an interesting place to walk around. He downtown parks seemed to be pretty lively. The breakfast at the hotel was OK, but nothing outstanding.

Zhong Fa Yuan Hotel is well located in business district of Xining City. Just 10-15 minutes walking distant to railway and bus station and few minutes walk to central market where you can buy a lot of things to take home. The single room is small and bath room is clean. However the floor carpet is old and need replacing. Breakfast is basicaly chinese and limited choices. There are three restaurants in this hotel that cater various customers:, Muslim restaurant, chinese and western restaurant. There is massage and sauna parlour at the basement and connected to beauty saloon at the ground floor. You also can get free internet connections. Difficulty in communicating with the hotel staff since they do not know english. Overall the hotel is suitable for everyone. The room rate is a little bit expensive and you can find other cheaper hotel nearby.

Ottima posizione per brevi soggiorni come nel mio caso. Personale gentile e disponibile, camere spaziose e ben pulite, bagno su standard europeo e colazione adeguata anche se fortemente indirizzata verso lo standard cinese. Qualche piccolo problema con le connessioni wifi giustificato con un maggior controllo antiterrorismo. La città non offre nulla di particolare ma la posizione permette di raggiungere con facilità ristoranti e negozi. Insomma tutto nella norma a garanzia della tranquillità.

hatten durch Zufall( ohne Aufpreis ein Apartment. betten waren zwar etwas hart, aber der Komfort war einfach herrlich. aufpassen muss man hier, da es gratis Wasser gibt, und in der minibar wassser, welches man bezahlen muss.personal korrekt aber nicht übermässig freundlich. die Schwierigkeiten mit englisch ist überall vorhanden. .

Останавливалась на одну ночь. Отель произвел хорошее впечатление. Расположен в удобном месте, легкий доступ к транспорту, окружающей инфраструтуре. В целом оценка пребывания в отеле твердая четверка. Один бал отнимаю за откровенно староватую мебель, и неравномерно ловящий вай-фай. Отличный ресторан, с хорошей кухней и приветливым персоналом уменьшает недостатки пребывания в номере. Ну, и что было характерно для Китая - персонал даже на рецепшен практически не говорит по английски, объяснялась жестами.
