            Jindi plaza is the best money for value deal we ever had! 60 square meters of luxury for just 60 euro's! Service is friendly, only some off the staff spoke english, but thats more than you would expect in China. Try the buffet diner on the 28th floor panorama restaurant!! Best buffet i ever had, and it's not only buffet as the chef comes up with different meats and seafood on à skewer. Excellent! The Korean restaurant is also nice. If you are going to datong, try this hotel!

            One of the bellboys went out of his way to help us organise our travel from Datong to Wutaishan. It saved us a great deal of time and effort.

            Amazing rooms, very well decorated, great value for money. We really appreciated the breakfast buffet with a vast choice of asian and western foods. The 24h room service choice is also good and the prices very reasonable.

            The staff isn't really up to the standards of the hotel, and it can be a hassle when you try to request something from the reception or room service. The hotel also isn't in the best part of town, but taxis are easy to find and even cheaper than in Beijing.

            Good quality rooms with clean bath rooms. Excellent staff.

            The taxi-driver arranged by the hotel was quite inexperienced and far more expensive than a similar taxi-driver independently arranged.

            Hotel is big, modern, a typical bussines hotel. Huge, very comfortable rooms & bathrooms. Very clean. Good breakfast, both Western and Chinese. Hotel has restaurant, gym, sauna, high standards, particularly compared with the provincial industrial and dirty town of Datong. Hotel can organize a taxi to the surrounding sights. Train reservation possible, but communication not too easy because of the limited English knowledge

            The City of Datong restructures the city centre partly. The hotel is located near the centre. Accordingly is the location at the moment not really attractive. Additionally Datong itself is an industrial town with quite some pollution (air), which all together makes the general place not too positive. Very limited English knowledge in the hotel available.

            5 star all the way. Our rooms were huge & wonderfully decorated and fitted out. Our rooms had gorgeous views of the new city walls (especially at night) and were very quiet and restfull. House staff were courteous & helpful. On our late night arrival our teenage children were hungry but at howard johnson no matter the late time, it wasnt a problem to call room service. Although the food was somewhat expensive, presentation and taste were delightful.

            Clean Hotel with great service, staff always tried to help. Great location with an excellent view of the city from our room. Great food at the Hotels various restaurants, and good breakfast buffet. Room service was great, enjoyed a nice steak, and pasta. Well looked after during our stay...great value & we would stay there again.

            If I had to be picky...only disappointment was room service breakfast, bacon fine, eggs fine, toast was nasty chinese style french toast :( and the cereal was a blend of three types and the milk was hot lol. Please Jindi Plaza...I Know this is China, but if someone orders toast, its just plain toast.

            The room and the nice view from it, the friendliness and the non-smoking section at the restaurant.

            It is a pity that smoking is allowed everywhere at the hotel, like in all other Chinese hotels. The system of pre-authorisation of the credit card in all Chinese hotels, is confusing.

            Rooms are nice and comfortable

            Dont be fooled by the fact that this has an American name and is a five star. The staff don't speak ANY English at all. We ordered room service by pointing to the menu. The orders often came with missing items and we wee shocked when the waiters babbled at us in Chinese and making a fuss when we tried to sign the bill to the room. Once again we were not told by reception during check in that this would be a problem. They needed us to pay the dinner room service by cash there are then. We have stayed in many five stars (out of china) and something like this is unheard of. We requested same day laundry service. We waited until night time for the laundry to arrive, it. Didn't come so we had to call our tour guide who speaks english, to contact the hotel to ask about our clothes. An hour later the laundry came back but we discovered later that half the items were missing. The laundry paper which returned with the clothes had some alterations to my original so I couldn't even count all my items that we sent for cleaning. After a lot of thinking we worked out that 8 tops/t-shirts were missing. After another hour of making a fuss we got outer clothes back, this is not five star service. The next day at check out we found the reception staff very inappropriate, never looking at us and giggling a lot. We communicated to them through our tour guide. And to top it all off we saw the manager take our guide to one side and start to whisper, a private conversation, we knew it was about us and the incident with the laundry. Very unprofessional attitude, made us feel very uncomfortable, not welcomed and we would never recommend this place Also the back fast buffet is grand,but only if you like Chinese food. There is no western food! Maybe French fries, which the Chinese don't understand that westerners don't eat French fries for breakfast!

            - Luxury hotel at a good price. - 2 beds in the room, each bed is bigger than a aimple bed but smaller than a double bed - there is a swimming pool (inside)

            - Front desk: During the day there is only one person who speaks english and if you arrive early in the morning or in the evening, nobody speaks english! - They tried to charge us 2 nights stay because we arrived early in the morning! Be carefull! - Also, the lady who speaks english at the front make a reservation for us with a driver to visit de grottos for 150y. I confirm the price twice with her. When we arrived at the hotel after the trip, the driver asked us 200y. We refused to pay. The driver called the lady and she said, it's 200y. We had to discuss and be firm, we paid 150y. In the brochure that the hotel give, it's writen that the price should be 80y for the round trip! The lady at the front desk said that is was an old bruchure! The next day, we didn't trust that lady and we were able easily to find a taxi to bring us to the monastery (250y round trip, the same price that was in the brochure!) Be carefull!!! - carpet was dirty
