The hotel is fantastic. Excellent standard and the rooms are big and perfect. The bath is factional and I miss nothing. I stay only one night but it is impressive. The location of the Hotel is only few steps from a nice river park. I can highly recommend this hotel! Great place

modern, clean all the signs of a new hotel. Good location in front of the river park with night illuminations. You have just to cross the park to visit a typical market. the breafast is good with a large choice of western and chinese foods.

This was my third stay (this time from October 31st til Nov. 2nd) at the Yinlong Hotel and I was never disappointed although I would rather prefer to rate the hotel with 4 instead of 5 stars. Since the weather was cold (it snowed one night which is unusual for mid autumn) I enjoyed the fresh air and strolling alround... More

The guide told us that It is the only five star hotel in the city. It is very beautiful, the rooms are clean and cozy. The only problem is that the walls are very thin, so you 'have to ' listen to what your neighbor is watching on TV. I had dinner at Paris Time. I enjoy eating in restaurant... More

Recently stayed here one night prior to catching the train to Lhasa. Room was clean and well appointed and it was an easy walk from the hotel across the river to a shopping area including a supermarket. Good range of options for buffet breakfast. Overall a pleasant surprise

We wanted to go and visit Qing Hai Lake and we had to go to Xi Ning first. So I looked through the hotels in Xi Ning and Yinlong would be the best there. I have read some reviews from other people saying how average it is and how poor the service is, but now I have stayed there and... More

I can't complain about the room - great view to the huge park - you can watch all kinds of dancing in the morning. Good bedding, but overall it is a Chinese 4* and the service is more or less non existent since nobody understands a word of English. Which is a PROBLEM if the toilet doesn't work but in... More

I should preface my remarks by saying 'when in Rome'. The first thing to understand is that this is Xining; its not Shanghai or Beijing. The government has had a policy in place for some years of developing the east coast of China before the western regions. Fair enough; you have to start somewhere. What makes a hotel 5 star,...

This hotel has really varied reviews but I was pleasantly suprised by it. Maybe my expectations are lower than others as I have alot of experience on hotels in China and also I am an english speaker but I was travelling with a mandarin speaker. The rooms are nice, good modern facilities, and not so hard beds that you usually... More

The hotel is relatively new. The rooms are nice, the elevators work well, lots of outlets in the rooms, plently of hot water, but the hotel staff is subjected to an outrageous management policy. They are fired after 3 months to prevent them from receiving a pay raise. As a result they are poorly trained with attitudes that lack any... More
