Hotel Review : LV Zhou Holiday Hotel In Zhangye Gansu, Silk Road China

Zhangye LV Zhou Holiday Hotel is newly opened in 2015, upon entering you will feel the hotel is still very new. Outside the hotel, there are many restaurants and supermarkets, so it is very convenient if you are looking for something to eat.   I didn’t get a chance to really explore the nearby as I was too tired from a busy schedule.

Hotel Room Review 

When you entered the room, you feel that the room is bigger and more spacious than the usual hotel room.  The floor is well carpeted and the wall is decorated with a Chinese ink painting.  The bed is very comfortable, firm and with clean bed sheet.

There are bottles of  complimentary mineral water (not all hotel in China has complimentary mineral water) but there is always a water boiler in the hotel room.  Chinese people love to drink warm or even hot water.  They believe it will keep their stomach healthy with the very warm water.

You will also notice the furniture in the room are mostly are plain polished wood with carved lacquer which were common in China since Ming Dynasty.

Bathroom Review

This is one of the best bathrooms during my Silk Road Hotel stay.  The bathroom is very spacious and equipped with all the necessary things.

There are also complimentary free toothbrush and comb plus other usual toiletries. These days hotel don’t usually provide toothbrush and comb anymore as it is not environmental friendly.

The best part is the toilet and shower room are being separated with two doors.  Showers are running well with hot and cold water.

Hotel Breakfast Review

Complimentary breakfast started around 6.30-7.00 am.  Since it is in China and Zhangye City is a tourist spot, you will find there are already tourists waiting outside the restaurant before the breakfast start.  It is buffet style breakfast and you get what you like from the smorgasbord.  You can also ordered the famous Lanzhou beef noodles from the noodle counter, the chef will make you a hot noodles but sometimes the queue for noodles are slightly long.

Plenty of shops and restaurant outside the LV Zhou Holiday hotel, so it is pretty convenient.  The hotel is about 30 mins to Zhangye train station.  You may also want to catch the bus to the city, 2 buses (19路和附1路)to the city.

Final Thoughts :

The hotel room in  LV Zhou Holiday hotel is spacious and equipped with beautiful wooden carved lacquer furniture.  I also love how the toilet and shower are being separated with two glass doors, which make the bathroom very tidy.

Too bad, I was too tired to take pictures of facilities of this hotel so I don’t have much memory how the front desk look like.

    1. Dear Nancie,
      There are plenty of restaurants and shops and bakery around. In case you were hungry at night, just pop out and check on what is available. Not sure they have any fast food restaurants. 🙂

  1. You found a really nice hotel in Zhangye Gansu. I love all the pictures. It seems like you really had a great time.

    1. Dear Keisha,

      Not a bad hotel I would say in Zhangye Gansu. Probably not the best but good enough to stay for a night. Convenient to restaurants and shops. Most importantly is clean and quiet at night.

  2. I love that the bathroom is spacious and equipped. It’s always the first thing I check upon entering my room. Thanks! Hope to visit China soon.

    1. Dear Kevin,
      Yes, I am quite impressed with the bathroom as the shower and toilets are being separated with two glass door. Clean and equipped with all the stuff you need.

  3. This is such a good review about this hotel. It really looks like a good place for a stay, it looks so clean and the ambiance looks very welcoming.

    1. Dear Christina,

      I guess the most important thing a traveller look at is how clean the hotel is. The noise issue is another thing that I look at. But the hotel certainly did not disappoint me as it is quiet and peaceful the whole night.

  4. That is a beautiful hotel. I think that if i ever traveled the Silk Road i would want to stop there. Great amenities and the breakfast looks delicious!

    1. Dear Chris,

      Thank you for your comment. The breakfast has a variety of spread but more on Chinese style but still you can find some western such as sausages, bake bean and ham. I give it 7 out 10.

  5. This looks like a really lovely place to stay. I like how well maintained it is, the facilities looks really looked after.

    1. Dear Mattie,

      Who doesn’t love the freebies. I am impressed that these days hotels still providing toothbrushes and comb. I don’t see these free items in the US and UK hotel but quite common in China Hotel.

    1. Dear Aduke,
      Haha, I guess that is the culture difference. It is common for Chinese to eat noodles as breakfast. Lol. But I am not sure eating noodles with “plenty of chili”! People in Gansu seem like to eat their noodles with tons of chili.

  6. This looks like a really nice and affordable place. If I ever get to the Silk Road, and I really hope I do, I will take your recommendation on accommodation 🙂

  7. The hotel room looks nice and spacious and I love the noddle bar as well. If I ever head to Silk Road, I would love to stay at Lv Xhou Holiday Hotel

    1. Dear Yeah,

      Yes, the noodle bar serve great noodles for breakfast. The chef only prepare when the customer ordered so the noodles served hot. The noodles in Zhangye is one of the signature dish as people in the north of China usually eat noodles/flour, rather than rice.

  8. This looks like it would be such a great place to stay when you are visiting. Sounds like it is an amazing time!

  9. Wow, what a great review! Thanks for the recommendation, whenever I am in the area, I’ll be sure to check them out. Bookmarked!

    1. Dear Hill,

      Yes, these days hotel usually dont provide toothbrush and comb anymore. But in China, there are still many hotels providing toothbrush. I didn’t use them as I brought along mine 🙂

    1. Dear Fabiola,

      Not many people know where is Zhangye, it is located in Gansu. It is one of the famous stop along Silk Road China. Marco Polo stayed in Zhangye for one year, can you believe that? I guess he liked it so much that he spent a year in Zhangye!

  10. That hotel is beautiful! I love the very modern but homey and traditional feel it has, especially with the ink paintings and the wood colors. And those noodles look so good!

  11. It’s so interesting you can’t use facebook and whats app. I wonder if Instagram and twitter are included in there. I love that they have spare tooth brushes. Surprisingly a lot of hotels do not have that along with toothpaste.

    1. Dear Tanisha,

      You are right, IG and Twitter can’t be used too in China, unless you have your own data roaming set up before going in China.
      Well, most of the hotels in America and UK and Europe do not provide free toothbrush anymore these days but in China, most hotels are still providing free for their guests.
