Travellers' Choice
The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel is founded in 1995. Situated against the backdrop of the picturesque Mingsha Sand Dunes, the hotel captures the spirit of the Tang Dynasty with its unique architectural design - the large rooftops and long corridors of the Han and Tang dynasties; the typical enclosed courtyard style design and mud walls of the northwestern part of China; and the replica of the late Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties furniture.

We were very happy with this hotel. It is a bit more expensive than some of the other places in town, but we felt like we got a very good value. The staff was extremely helpful. Part of the room stay included pickup from the airport which was very nice. The hotel has a great view of the dunes and the staff were happy to give advice about the best time to visit. From the hotel it is only about a kilometer to the base of the dunes park and you can see them from the roof top restaurant where breakfast is served. It should be noted that while the hotel has an elevator the rooftop restaurant appears only accessible by a slightly step set of staircases. We arrange for the hotel to drive us to Mogao caves, and the valet captain, who drove us over there really went above and beyond to make sure that we got tickets for the English showing and made it there in time. When we asked about leaving our luggage at the front desk until our early afternoon flight, they just gave us late checkout which allow a much needed nap. We were really glad we decided to stay here.

The Dunhuang Silkroad hotel is fantastic way to experience the Silk Road. It’s very close to the sand dunes, has just beside the show and has the best roof top terrace EVER! It’s great that they serve the breakfast on the roof top and it’s great for star gazing with a beer late at night. Breakfast could be improved with some fresh juices, but the freshly done noodles compensate for everything.

We stayed at unique Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel (敦煌山莊) when we made a trip to Dunhuang. The hotel has a splendid entrance, gorgeous and well-decorated lobby. The Hotel followed a unique architectural design of Tang Dynasty. Our bedroom was adequate, well set with two beds, decent/simple sitting area, small closet, and modest bathroom. Service was great. Wi-fi was adequate. We enjoyed Hotel’s unpretentious but ample breakfast on the open rooftop of the Hotel with a brilliant view. We enjoyed the stay.
