This is a good hotel for staying especially if you are catching train to Lhasa.
First, if you are flying in by yourself, the most economical way to hotel is as follows.
1. When you exit the airport, there is a booth that sells public bus ticket to town.
2. Purchase a ticket for RMBb 21.
3. Go outside where the public buses (express) are located and make sure that you get onto the bus for Yinlomg Hotel. (Ask in English as it seems like all the helpers who load the luggage understand and knows the correct bus.)
4. Get off at Yinlong hotel stop (first stop) and note that there will be taxis waiting behind the bus on the street.
5. Take a taxi; but negotiate price in advance and know that it should not be more than 10 RMB to hotel.
6. Taxi will drop you off at taxi stop which is a short distance pass the hotel.
7. You must walk back up the street to get to the entrance of hotel.
Note: the manager speaks excellent English and she will ask you to
endure you have train ticket, Tibet permit, etc.

For meals, there is new mall across the street (major street) with reasonable choices of restaurants and decent prices. If you want cheap street food, there is the pedestrian mall behind the hotel.

Taxi to the train station is reasonable, get the approximate cost from hotel staff. They gave me the high side as my trip cost less. Staff will help you get a taxi from the same taxi stop area where the taxi dropped you off. Strange, but taxis are not allowed to drop off or pick up in front of hotel. All legal taxis are metered; strongly suggest only use metered taxis.

Enjoy the hotel, it is clean and has a decent breakfast. Staff is very helpful and if you think they do not understand, ask to speak to manager, she will take care of you.

Quite a good hotel in Xining with good location and fairly acceptable price. It is located at the city center. Rooms are big with good amenities and snacks! Only problem is breakfast, limited choice of western breakfast while the taste of its Chinese breakfast is slightly disappointing

Clean hotel with a bit outdated decor, however stuff is really helpful and english-speaking. They can support with organizing tours (i took a private one to qinghai hu). Windows are badly insulated and you may here the noice from outside.

First note that hotel goes by 2 names: San Wang & San Want which may cause some confusion. We stayed for 4 days to acclimate to the altitude before heading to Lhasa, Tibet on the train. There is plenty to do to keep you busy while you hang out there. The hotel staff mostly do not speak English, but it seems everyone has a translator app on their phones which is very handy. Rooms were clean and more than adequate. Breakfast has mostly Chinese options but there is plenty for westerners as well, even eggs cooked to order. I would definitely stay here again as it is in a very central location.

Nice, but not great. Spotty WiFi.
Good breakfast with nice Chinese and western offerings.
Fair location -- had a nice alley with good restaurants beside it. Long walk to parks and points of interest. Convenient to supermarkets and shopping.

Room Tip: End suites are double rooms with one being a nice sitting area.
