  Culture Hotel - The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel, Dunhuang




The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel
was founded in 1995. Situated against the backdrop of the picturesque Mingsha Sand Dunes in Dunhuang, Gansu Province, the hotel captures the living taste of the Tang Dynasty with its unique architectural design - the large rooftops and winding corridors of the Han and Tang dynasties; the typical enclosed courtyard style design and mud walls of the northwestern part of China; and the replica of the late Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties furniture. All these work together to recapture the flavour of a bygone era with their simplicity and use of natural building materials.

Cusi: Bactrian Camel

To journey through the fabled Silk Road and experience China's ancient culture could have been your dream. Now, this dream can be realized with the completion of the Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel. It combines modern facilities together with a touch of classical architectural design to provide comfortable accommodation to Silk Road travelers.

Thanks for your message. My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel. It is a really beautiful place, and the staff were exceptionally helpful, particularly the Assistant Manager, who provided us with very helpful information about how to get around in Dunhuang.

实际上我们在贵酒店住了3晚。
 
第1晚(8日)我们就入住了,是在携程订的房间,因为我是携程的钻石会员。第2晚和第3晚由于携程没有客房,所以与你联系直接订酒店。
 
酒店很不错。不管从外观上还是内部装饰上,尤其喜欢在摘星阁看景色美的令人陶醉。
 
只是觉得如前台送机服务和客房清洁方面可以做的更好,也可能要求过高了,供参考。
 
如果下次去,还是会选择贵酒店。
 
谢谢!

We had a fabulous experience in Dunhuang.  We learned that less than 3% of the visitors are American yet more should go to experience the richness of the area. Truthfully, it was The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel website and link to your tours that piqued our interests to visit.  As seasoned, independent travelers who have never utilized a tour company, we were immensely gratefully that we chose you to coordinate our trip to Dunhuang.  The customized 4-day tour with a private driver and English speaking guide allowed us to enjoy the incredible historical sites, vast Gobi desert ventures, fun camel ride and authentic Chinese culture, cuisine and life, which we would never have experienced on our own.  Our guide, Ms Fan, was knowledgeable, compassionate, friendly, and flexible to adapt each day to best suit our interests and desired activities. She was absolutely fantastic, and we give her five stars for her extraordinary skills as a guide. Mr Lee, our driver, was always reliable and a safe driver.  Thank you for employing the best people to serve your clients.  Also a note of acknowledgement for the wonderful stay at The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel.  Our suite was beautifully decorated, the beds were very warm and comfortable, and the staff were always gracious and helpful.  Eric Huang, Assistant Manager, was definitely a key resource person and we appreciated his help.   We dined at the Chinese Restaurant because Western foods we could eat at home.  All the meals were attractively presented and tasted outstanding.  Hot Pot was a favorite dining experience.  We traveled to China solely to visit Dunhuang, to stay 6 days at your hotel, and to take the 4-day personalized tour.  Standing on the roof top cafe to enjoy the sand dunes and walking around the large hotel grounds are memorable experiences.  We were never disappointed, and would highly recommend the hotel and your tour services to others traveling to Dunhuang.  We will definitely share our experiences with family and friends, and hope more travelers will make the journey to Dunhuang.
Again, many thanks to all the fine staff who made our trip memorable.

We stayed at the Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel during June 2012.

The hotel is a beautiful building and fantastic to explore. Even better the staff are warm and friendly, and everyone we dealt with was very helpful. I was surprised at how many staff spoke such excellent English.

Located near the Crescent Moon Lake as well as being only a short ride to town, it is well located. To town is only 10rmb by taxi, however the hotel has a shuttle during the evenings that runs every half hour too. The Dunhuang Night market is great to explore and we loved some of the local restaurants.

To celebrate my birthday, my wife and I had a great meal of local specialities in one of the hotel’s Chinese restaurants. The service and presentation was excellent, and we really enjoyed it. It was great value.

Our room was both comfortable and well-appointed and we were more than happy with it. We also enjoyed the roof top garden for lunch and drinks. The hotel offers a great breakfast, also on the roof, and this was one of the better breakfasts I have had in China in the many months and visits I have made there.

I totally recommend The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel to anyone coming to Dunhuang. I can’t wait to go back myself.

Very good stay.  We will post on trip advisor.

We recommend that you put in a small pool in the courtyard.  It gets very hot in the desert.

I am a history teacher and I recently stayed at your wonderful hotel -- from July 14-16 -- with a group of teachers from the United States.  We were travelling with the "EF,"  EDUCATION FIRST Tour Group.  These days in your special hotel were my favorite part of our trip to China.  Your hotel staff was kind to let us hold a meeting in your reception area.
 
…we traveled to Dunhuang in mid July with a group of 25 fellow teachers from several different states in the U.S.  She writes, "For me, and many others in our group, Dunhuang was the high point of our study tour.  All members of the group found The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel to be of lovely architectural design, with a beautiful lobby featuring  a lofty ceiling and a large, dramatic historical mural. We commented that the designer of the hotel took a lot of care to craft such an attractive yet usable and practical structure.  The layout resembles that of a palace complex, with several buildings and subsections framed in light colored wood that seems at home in the desert surroundings.  The top floor of the main building features a comfortable indoor dining area fronted by a good-sized wooden deck overlooking the desert dunes.  The deck is shaded in the morning when breakfast is served, and the view is breathtaking.  Teachers in the group were awestruck to actually be in Dunhuang on the edge of the Gobi, which to some had been just dots on a map before this visit.  Early risers could view a lovely sunrise, and those who could stay awakee until 9:30 p.m.  were treated to a gorgeous sunset over the dunes.  
 
Our adventurous group opted to go on a camel ride into the dunes in the high, dry heat, and rode on to lovely Crescent Lake.   The ride was bumpy but great fun.  On another day we went to view the nearby Mogao Grottos - "the Caves of the Thousand Buddhas"  -  which house beautiful Buddhist shrines with statuary, paintings, and inscriptions from the Tang Dynasty.  We were also able to visit Dunhuang High School and meet with several of the teachers and students.  We were impressed by the students' poise and English language skills. After their last day of final examinations, they generously showed us around their large, impressive campus.  Every evening we returned to the cool and comfort of the spacious, welcoming Silk Road unhuang Hotel. This was the trip of a lifetime and we want to thank the skilled and helpful staff of the hotel, the teachers and students of Dunhuang High School, and also the kind Mayor of Dunhuang, who helped make our trip to the school so meaningful and special.  Many thanks to the people of Dunhuang!"

西安是丝绸之路的起点,由河西走廊向西,汉唐时期的敦煌,则是这条走廊的西端国门。‘羌笛何须怨杨柳,春风不度玉门关’,‘劝君更进一杯酒,西出阳关无故人’。咸阳-宝鸡-天水-武威-兰州-张掖-酒泉-瓜州–,一路往西,过了秦岭,绿色渐少,天苍苍地茫茫。到了敦煌,继续往西160公里,雅丹地质公园,已近新疆,是塔克拉玛干沙漠的边缘。天地之间,浑然灰黄,人车都是那一小点。车抛锚,人搁浅,随时晒死。人和自然,张力紧绷。
 
敦煌在汉唐时期,已经有13万人口,是丝绸之路上客商信徒往来不绝的大都市,莫高窟的出现,并非偶然。唐代以后,政治中心东移,海上丝绸之路开通。敦煌渐而凋零,如今也只有18万人口。在茫茫沙海之中,王先生独具慧眼,他于1993年起筹建敦煌山庄,如今是敦煌一流的旅馆,那各种档次的客房院落、培训中心、学生宿舍、饮宴表演、健身娱乐和独院住宅,沙漠篝火烧烤场等等,到处壁画雕塑、景观绿化,每一个细部都设计得妥帖。他本是文艺青年,每栋楼、每个院都由他题名写联,‘宏远楼’(客房)、‘丰国祠’(饭庄和表演)、‘摘星阁’(屋顶咖啡茶座,远望鸣沙山日落),因为有了物质文明和文学想象,这肃杀的世界才雅致起来。如今,客人近悦远来,半数以上是欧美和港台客人。
 
学生分为文献组、摄影组、媒体组和测量组分头工作。第二期用地2000亩,相当于一个大学校园。这样大的尺度我也没有弄过。基础投资会很大。房子尺度大了无用,尺度小了则很散。一张白纸,可以画最新的图画。画得不好,会很俗。
西北地区严重缺水,年降水量40几毫米,蒸发量2400多。一小片阴影就是珍贵绿洲。 敦煌除了旅游业,也种棉花和葡萄,本地人和农民收入不错。我和当地的同志们广泛交谈,大家觉得,这地方的经济和南方当然不能比,但房价和物价不贵,小日子过得也不错。敦煌山庄的天台咖啡厅,一杯饮品,20几到百元不等,都有些本地居民开车来消费,也有香港理工大学旅游系的学生在实习。中国过去二十年来,城市人民逐步奔小康。在任何一个角落,都可以直观地感受到。

I stayed at the hotel last summer. It was a very positive experience for me. I loved sunrise on the roof and breakfast overlooking the dunes. The staff were friendly, and I was able to book a private tour into the desert which was so informative and wonderful. There is so much to see and do in Dunhuang. I recommend a visit to there and your hotel to everyone I speak to about my vacation.

We found your hotel to be an extraordinarily elegant accommodation with a wonderful staff. Eric, one of the managers, helped us every day and we felt very much at home because of his kindness. We were able to enjoy all of the cultural sites--the Magao Caves, the Dunes, and the Dunhuang Museum and night market. The food was wonderful. The room was beautiful. We love your hotel and hope that we will soon be able to visit again.

I did want to email and say that we had a wonderful stay at the Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel. We have great memories, the rooms we had were excellent and the service was also exceptional which included utilising the hotel service to go to the Mogao Caves and the 1000 Buddha caves. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a wonderful way to finish our trip in China.

Thank you again for your help in booking the accommodation as well, as it helped to deal direct with the Hotel chain and to know that the reservations were made and that there would be no issues when arriving at the Hotel and checking in. 
I would certainly recommend to my family, friends and others to stay at the above hotel or other Silk Road hotels.

Kind Regards,

It was truly a pleasure to stay at your Culture Hotels along the Silk Road tour, which offered superb service and much appreciated sensitivity to the local environment. This was a tightly organized tour, and many of my fellow travelers have reported to me that they had a wonderful time, which exceeded all their expectations. We would highly recommend your Silk Road Tour to anyone.
