The Shengyuan Hotel proved to be an excellent spot as a base for exploring the local area, particularly the Taosi ruins some 20km to the south. The hotel was a a very good standard and whilst the staff had no English they went out of their way to assist in every respect, always with a laugh and a smile. The hotel is convenient for the train station and easy to find.
Linfen is an unusual destination for western tourists but well worthwhile particularly historically. If you're going to stay here this is the place to stay.
I believe the hotel is also known as the Holy Origin hotel but the chance of finding anyone who speaks English to confirm this is absolutely minimal!More
