Went for a short, 2 night break from Beijing to visit the Western Xia Tombs just outside Yinchuan. I caught the shuttle bus from the airport (20rmb) to the terminal in central Yinchuan. It was a 25 min walk to the hotel, Later discovered a very convenient 28 bus which stopped nearby. The hotel staff were efficient, friendly and welcoming but with limited English, so I used my "survival" Chinese throughout my stay. Whether they could speak more English or were politely humouring my attempts at their language was difficult to say. The second night I ate at the hotel, which turned out to be better than the local restaurant I had used. Breakfast was a limited Chinese buffet but sufficient.
A good choice for someone who wants a clean basic hotel and comes to China to see China not to pay a high price for non-room ammenities that they would not use anyhow. Like the Home Inn chain this hotel does not have carpets in the room which I which other Chinese hotels would follow as the floors are much cleaner without a carpet.
