We are 2 couples from Malaysia visiting Dunhuang. When we arrived by train from Lanzhou, we will surprised by the hotel with a free pick up from the railway station at 6.30am. When we arrived at the hotel, we were given a complimentary buffet breakfast while they prepared our rooms for an early check in. The room were clean and staff are very helful and friendly. We stayed in room 1030 and 1055 for 3 nights, when we asked for information on getting to the railway station for our onwards journey to Jiayuguan, they again offered us a free drop off. Great location, good food and a very wonderful experience for us. We will be back again next years with more of our friends. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Had just spent about 12 days on a train from Moscow touring Central Asia and this was the first hotel we had stayed at and I literally loved everything about. From the quirky fort like design, to the friendly professional staff, the comfortable locally themed rooms, the magnificent Chinese restaurant for dinner, the splendid rooftop restaurant for breakfast (with glorious views of the dunes) and the fact that had smoking rooms. At night the hotel and its grounds were gloriously lit up. Highly recommended........

Room Tip: If possible get a room facing the sand dunes. They have a smoking wing if you are a smoker.

The resort is very large and offering various type of accommodation from dormitories to private villas.I refer to the hotel, which is a professionally managed of international standard. The rooms are homely decorated and furnished with a local touch. The beds are not local but comfyly soft. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful - particularly the concierges Eric and Michael helped me with a very unusual request! English is patchy with many of the staff, though. There's Chinese food and some western food -like pizzas, pasta dishes and sandwiches- available. The western food is not haute cuisine but comfort food - I loved it after 2 weeks of roughing it in the country side. They even do proper Gin Tonics that you can enjoy as a sun downer on the roof top terrace with a fantastic view of the dunes. I did this three days in a row! Breakfast has a wide selection of western and asian favorites, the only set back: the cheese was processed cheese slices in plastic. The baguette bread was fresh, eggs would be cooked to order, a selection of real juices as well as coffee was available and there was real butter and good jams and marmelade (I can't deal with Chinese breakfast, I'm afraid, even after 15 years in the country.). Breakfast was included in the room price. The resort is easy to reach by car (free parking for hotel guests) but rather far from downtown. It's within walking distance of the dunes and sits right next to the venue of the folklore show. To the airport it's a 15 minutes drive, the hotel offers free transfer. I visited in off season and had a calm and pleasant stay - I could imagine that the area becomes buzzing in main season. Next time I will be in Dunhuang I will definitely stay here again.

Having left the smog of Xi'an, we were delighted to see the blue skies of Dunhuang and the cultural hotel called the Silk Road. The dunes area was lovely, quiet and cold! - cozy and warm in the spacious rooms of this interesting hotel. The service was good, food was fair, the views from the terrace roof - stunning.

Stayed here as part of a long, 18 day, silk road trip. This hotel gave us a very relaxing 2 days while we visited local sites. Nice room, good wifi access throughout the hotel (though not the fastest). Stunning entrance lobby and very comfortable room. They also let us check in early following an overnight train trip. Very good breakfast on roof top terrace with a superb view over the dunes. Evening on the terrace was rather spoiled by the noisy theatre show next door; not sure if that is part of the hotel or whether it happens only at weekends.
