Crown Plaza is a very large, fancy hotel on the banks of the Yellow River - it is an interesting cross between an upmarket local hotel and a tourist hotel. As such the hotel caters to a wide cross-section of both local residents and group tours - both local and foreign. The hotel does a great job offering large clean rooms, big breakfast with a wide assortment, and fast check-in and out. But due to it's large size and varied clientele, service does suffer. Nevertheless, a great choice for Lanzhou traveler, though slightly pricey.

Room tip: River view, especially at night

We stayed at this Hotel as part of a group tour.
The location is just out of the main shopping area and too far to walk. Taxi's are very cheap. Nearby, some restaurants, and small food stores.
The room was very big with excellent views towards the city and the Yellow river. Comfy bed, however, the aircon did not lower the temp of the room below 21.5 degrees C so it was quite hot for sleeping - need to take the doona out of the sheet and sleep with the sheets covering you. If aircon worked, then we would have rated the Crowne Plaza a 5.

Our basin would not drain until I removed the plug mechanism. Excellent hot water. The bathroom area could be sealed off and it made for an excellent clothes drying room at night.

Excellent selection for breakfast, however, staff were slow to replenish food.

The hotel has a large lobby with good spaces for guests to sit around. The rooms are a good size, well designed with an elegant decor. Beds are large and comfortable with soft pillows. Bathrooms are spacious and well equipped. Breakfasts are very good with a range of food to satisfy many tastes. Noodle soup made on the spot was a breakfast highlight for many guests.
Highly recommended

Located on the north bank of the yellow river, on the side of Lanzhou city, the city is not big so it is still convenient to get around, however there is nothing around the hotel, everything is on the other side of the river, room was good, breakfast was good but the beef noodle was nothing to compare with other local restaurants.

My parents stayed at Crowne Plaza for 3 nights in a club room, I joined for one night before we headed off to a 10d Silk Road trip.
Rooms were as expected, quiet, clean, tidy, good amenities, spacious. We booked river view rooms, view was also great as expected.
Breakfast was very nice with both Chinese and western options.
Facilities (pool etc) were very nice with reasonable opening hours.
Staff was ok. If you don’t speak mandarin the service level is acceptable but not great (e.g. missed to communicate evening cocktails and other benefits of club room - if you don’t know you’re out of luck), easier to communicate in mandarin.
Overall still very good stay, recommendable to anyone looking for nice stay in Lanzhou.
