During my 8-day trip on China's Silk Road in Xinjiang and Gansu provinces, I stumbled with a fantastic Silk Road Dubhuang hotel that greatly impressed me. The strengths of this hotel include 1) excellent service that has far superior to other Chinese hotel in the far western area of China (Xinjiang and GAnsu); 2) well decorated hotel will many details that makes the hotel become a remindful cahracter of Silk Road and sensationally reflects the outstnading history of Dunhuang's world's class attraction, the Mogao Grottoes; 3) great location outside the city yet has porximity to and with the great view of the famous Ming Sha Shun desert. However if you like to walk inside the centre of the Dunghuang city, this hotel may lack that given the location is quite far from the city.
For the room the decoration is up to standard but may not be called "luxury" hotel that you can find in major cities of China. But remember that in the western states of China, this hotel has much better service and decoration than all other hotels that I have stayed.
