Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Highly recommended gorgeous boutique hotel tastefully decorated to the little detail. It is built in a traditional Chinese courtyard style. The rooms are spacious and have all amenities that one would expect from a good hotel. The breakfast was a mix of Chinese and Western, and nicely served in the courtyard restaurant. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the center of Datong old town, and within 5 to 10 minute walking distance to all attractions in the old town. Various good restaurants are just a few meters away. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, always super attentive and quickly assisting us with anything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay at Yunzhong and the only regret was that we had to leave after our two nights there.

What a gem of a hotel. Definitely the best hotel in Datong and is worth every $ and coming to Datong to just stay here! It is located less than a minute walk off a main road in a non car street and short walking distance to a number of sites in old Datong. Tucked away off the main tourist street but still only a walk minute away. It is definitely a boutique hotel architecturally designed and decorated. to look like one of the old homes or inns from ancient China but with all the modern amenities like hot cold running water, AC, heat, electronic room keys. The only thing it lacks is an in room safe. It is a quiet oasis. Beautiful courtyard where you can quietly sit and relax with bonsai plants and flowers all over. Everywhere you look is a feast for the eyes with old relics, Chinese and western art and furniture. Very tastefully decorated - someone definitely know what they were doing. The bedding and mattress was definitely imported and internationally 5 star hotel standard! Very comfortable mattress with the right amount of firmness and the bedding is clean soft and comfortable and no musty smell. I like the fact that the hotel is quite exclusive in that the doors are always closed and only allow hotel guests to come in. The rooms had absolutely no smoke smells. The staff and hospitality was amazing. Warm and dignified. A special thanks to Marcos at the front who was always looking out for our needs. English is spoken by most of the staff - and If not always a smile and a greeting. The owner actually spent some time in PEI Canada for his schooling. The breakfast was pretty incredible and delicious with real coffee and a choice of Chinese or western breakfast. The supper there is also very good and better and definitely cleaner than most restaurants outside. You have to let them know that you are coming back for supper and suggest what you would like to eat. They will try to accommodate you. What started out as a 3 nights stay ended up to be 5. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Datong to stay here. It is probably one of the most expensive hotels in the area but international standards and 5 star service = international pricing. So if you are looking for somewhere cheap to stay and cheap food with local prices - this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for an authentic experience and enjoyed staying in a classy boutique hotel - Yunzhong is the place for you. The main tourist street is still under construction so a lot of the shops are not open yet but everything looks like it will be up and finished soon. Love the nights here - feels like you are an honored guest at someone’s home.

Excellent service, comfortable rooms with regional decor, all in a charming central location. Walking distance to the City Wall and major temple sites. You will not find nicer tourist accommodations in the region. Highly recommend.

I was born and raised in a 200 old house in Macau, that was almost more than half a century ago. Staying for 2 nights at this traditional Chinese building brought back some memory. The hotel is a boutique hotel with beautiful courtyard and decorated with historical charm of Chinese culture. Yet the amenities are up to date. Breskfast was a combination of east and the west. Well worth to stay just to have the experience.

In the middle of Datong ancient city wall, the hotel brings you to the old imperial China with all modern facilities ever. Superior room was massive with living room and separate studio. Amazing bathroom with everything you may need. Décor incredible and a little museum inside where you can even buy the finest antiques. Breakfast very nice and served close to a beautiful cigar bar. Highly recommended.

Lovely small boutique hotel modelled on an old style Hutong. Peaceful and quiet, large rooms opening out onto a very beautiful courtyard, full of flowers and areas to sit and sip tea. Highly recommend a stay here if visiting Datong. The staff are friendly and attentive. Breakfast was simple but delicious.

We will simply echo the other reviews—charming oasis with superior and friendly service. Our room was so relaxing, clean snd comfortable. We have been to Datong three times. It is a rapidly modernizing city, but this courtyard hotel maintains the ancient ambience. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed two nights in this hotel and could not have been happier. The room had a great ambiance and style. It was not a "typical" hotel room and we were happy for that. The hotel has that interesting "new/old" style of the renovation that the city of Datong is undergoing (hopefully it will be completed for the rest of the city.) The dinner, wine and tea that we had at the hotel was wonderful. The biggest factor for us loving our stay here was the staff. We felt like we had personal attendants while we were there but in no way felt we were constantly being watched. When we checked in I asked if they had a laundry service and they said "absolutely." I am not sure they actually do but they happily washed my clothes anyway! Later we expressed we would like to buy a nice tea set. When we returned later that day from touring we were asked if we like to go shopping for the tea set we mentioned. One of the staff then walked us through the city to a wonderful tea store that we never would have been able to find on our own. We were treated to tea and bought a lovely tea set that the staff member was actually going to purchase for herself. She insisted we take it instead because she lived in town and could always get the next one that came in stock. Do yourself a huge favor and stay at this hotel. You will be glad you did.

This is a truly amazing hotel! Having stayed in numerous 5 star hotels in China or around the world, this is one of the few, which really made great impression on us. The location is excellent, within the modernized old city with many good restaurants and shops nearby. What impressed us the most was the constant good service we experience throughout our stay with very friendly staff. We had complimentary airport pick up with fresh flower, water and smiling staff. The room is very clean, the bed is comfortable. We had a room looking into the yard, so it is very quiet during the night. The courtyard is beautiful. The breakfast is a set menu with either Chinese or western types of food. It was tasty and more than plenty. It is highly recommended for visitors in Datong.

We stayed with the family for 2 days to visit the amazing sights of Datong. The hotel offered us impeccable service and hospitality at a level not easily found in China. This small family run hotel is located in a pedestrian only area and from getting greeted personally at our drop off to a free shuttle service to the airport the hotel anticipated any of our needs. The rooms are lovingly appointed by the owner family and offer luxurious accommodation. The courtyard style layout and location inside the ancient city walls provides for a serene environment. We plan to visit Shanxi province again and we will definitely check to stay here again.
