We stayed for a night at the Shanxi Grand and were just looking for a place to lay our heads. The hotel exceeded our expectations, which were quite low, based on reviews and pictures.

What was good: very friendly staff, flexibility with check-out time, good breakfast, large room, good location, decent view from the room, adequate wifi.

What wasn't: dated lobby, garish light-up, staff speak only Chinese, tired rooms and decor.

The positives were all important to us, while the negatives weren't, so we were quite happy.

One odd thing, though: we booked a room that said it came with "one breakfast", thinking it meant one breakfast for each of us, but it turned out one of us had breakfast included while we had to pay for the other. It wasn't too pricey and the spread was good, but we felt it was an extraordinarily strange package to be selling.

Although the hotel is old and the lobby could use a remodeling, our room was spacious, very clean, the windows were facing the street and offered a very nice view of the sunrise. The towels, the bed sheets and the bath gowns were immaculate, good soap and shampoo, hair drier, etc. The breakfast was very good and, altogether, we had a very good stay.

The Good: good location; clean rooms; efficient service;

The bad: ugly building; old lobby; dull lobby bar; duller shops; people smoke everywhere despite signs prohibiting it.

Seen there is not much choice in Taiyuan, this is probably the best value for money out there.

We were in Taiyuan to adopt our sons. The Shanxi Grand Hotel was convenient to the park, a bank and some shopping. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. Although the language barrier was present sometimes, we were surprised to meet a waiter, at breakfast, who was studying English. His language skills were quite good.
I was amazed at how inexpensive it was to order room service. Instead of trying to muddle through on the phone, I found someone on the restaurant area who took down an order and it was delivered to my room. There was also a restaurant down the street that was very good. Ordering room service was less expensive than the restaurant down the street.
Yingtze park was three blocks away and was fantastic. KFC and a grocery store are within three blocks.

Room Tip: If there is noise, ask for a different room! Beware of construction next door! Our twin boys were fascinated watching the construction crew.
