Silk Road Hotel Dunhuang Reviews
Overpriced, rude, unwelcoming except for the wonderful folk at the Massage centre Sep 14, 2012
NOT to be confused with the other "Silk Road Hotel" in Dunhuang, yes there are two! This one is located outside town centre backing onto the Dunes.
This was a bit of a splash/treat hotel although to be honest it wasn’t that much of a treat. The rates were 700Y per night for twin room for two nights, inc. breakfast which was anything from a large buffet to cook you an omelette or bacon and eggs. They were not very friendly or very unhelpful. Our room was superb, with Ensuite western bathroom. The beds were excellent. There was room wifi at 50Y a day.(Very expensive) Our room was cleaned daily. We also booked a foot massage with their “Health & Fitness” we paid 88Y for foot massage for each person. They started with feet soak, then shoulder massage then at least an hour on our feet and lower leg massage. Amazing! And great value too! And very friendly staff, not like reception which was more like an ice cave regards customer service. Unfortunately due to a very large conference (apparently) they could not accommodate us for a third night so we decamped to the Fe ti an. We never ate in the Silk Road, as we prefer to eat out and the restaurant always looked deserted, as did the rest of the hotel except at breakfast and when the tour groups were congregating in the lobby.
