Holiday Inn Express Zhangye3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Travelers to Danxia National park and Great Buddha Temple do not have much choice for international standard hotels in Zhangye - the Holiday Inn Express we found quite acceptable for a night's rest. In general, the hotel was relatively clean though "sparse"; breakfast was very local but enjoyable and filling. Other than the rooms and breakfast area, the hotel does not have other amenities, and as other have noted, is relatively far from town. So meals should be taken elsewhere before returning to the hotel. One other issue to note -- the hotel does not accept int'l credit cards so either pay before, have cash or get help.
We asked our travel agent to switch our Zhangye hotel to the Holiday Inn Express based on the reviews we read. This has got to be the least desirable hotel in our Silk Road Trip. The hotel rooms were clean. Breakfast is lousy. Hot food is served cold even for the steamed buns. Coffee machine was not working and the breakfast area is small. We picked this hotel because it is an international brand hotel. Just hope they can improve on their breakfast food.
When we are looking for hotel in Zhangye, we can only find Holiday Inn Express as the only international brand in that area. And since it is new, we decide on it. Luckily there is a nice Beef Noodle restaurant next to the hotel where we can have our dinner. But it run out of noodle pretty early. The breakfast is good for us, we like it. Cleanliness wise is negative, the two cups in the room is filled with blackish water, and I have to bring them down to change new ones.
Hotel is still in very good condition. Rooms are spacious. Coin laundry on the ground floor. They have dedicated smoking and non-smoking floors. The only downside is the location; it's in a new development area, so not much around and not close to the city center or high-speed rail station. But the front staff said they'll arrange taxis/DiDi rides for guests. The hotel has a breakfast area, but not sure if all rates include breakfast.
I enjoyed my stay here, except the people on my floor were a little noisy even late at night I had to tell them to be quiet a couple of times. Overall the hotel is nice and the staff is very friendly. They even have staff who speak very good English. The breakfast is okay. They had enough food to my liking, though it was still a Chinese breakfast and not Western. The hotel is a little outside of the city center, but it is convenient to a bus line and taxis. There are a few small family restaurants in the area, and even a Muslim one probably 1 km east of the hotel. Although there are parks near by, I did not have the time to visit them. I would recommend staying here. The room was clean, comfortable, smoke free. There was plenty of hot water in the morning. The area around the hotel can be a little noisy because at least while I was there, there was a band and activities outside at another nearby hotel, closing the window was sufficient, Also the thermostat in the room works well. I was able to keep my room cool even when it was warm outside.
