Liked: nothing

Disliked: The staff is not very helpful or friendly, in fact very impatient if you ask them several questions. Only the staff at the travel service counter is more friendly but that is provided if you are interested to book the tours. The place is run down and dirty. no toilet paper provided.

Liked: Check out

Disliked: The bathroom has not been cleaned for years, I am glad I have vaccination. I have been in China for more than a year, travelled around the country, stayed in different kind of places, but nothing beats this. Hotels in north east China for 40 Y per double room were much better than this place. The beds are very small, Chinese size. The worst is, that there is almost no other option to stay at, if you want to go budget. For around 15 euros for a double you can stay in Green Tree Inn which is located in the Uyghur part of the city.
