Chéng Lín Hotel
Spacious, well-turned-out rooms with en suite shower come with dark-wood furniture, TV and kettle and are great value after discounts. No internet in the rooms, but there’s an internet cafe (per hour ¥2 to ¥4) on the 3rd floor. Limited English.
In the more lively end of town, Dōngfāng has neat and tidy rooms that go for Y108 after discounts and some staff who speak a bit of English.
A decent choice if you need to be close to the train station, standard rooms are big, clean and comfortable and can be nabbed for Y198. Better quality rooms with internet access cost an extra Y70...
Offers large clean rooms overlooking a car park. Good value for money and they usually knock the price down to ¥100. From the bridge walk on the main road towards the monastery and make the first right turn; the hotel is down the street on the left.
For something cheaper, but grottier, try this OK place on Zhongshan Lu. Twins with bathroom usually go for Y80. Note, the common bathrooms don't have showers. It's on the left as you walk away from the bridge.
There are fancier hotels in town, but we like the old-school feel to this place with its gaudy maroon and gold carpets snaking through gloomy corridors...
This reliable chain hotel is in the heart of the city and has clean rooms and a helpful staff. Book well in advance in summer.
Has a bright lobby and decent double rooms that usually get knocked down to ¥150/200. The shared bathrooms are wretched so consider a room with attached bathroom (but running water is sporadic in either case)...
Náng Qiàn Bīnguǎn
This is a grim place with tatty shared rooms that don’t have a bathroom. There are some en suite doubles, but the owner was not letting them out when we visited.
Niǔ Ròu Miàn Dàwáng
A popular place for noodles. Try the zhá jiàng miàn (炸酱面), a sort of spaghetti with meat sauce. It’s a couple of doors down from Kāngbā Jiǔdiàn.

Sān Jiāng Yuán International Hotel
A temporary building made of white metal siding, located on the outskirts of town on the way to Xīnzhài (新寨). Despite the impermanence of the place, rooms have TV and (cold) running water. The hotel has an attached restaurant.
Sunshine Pagoda International Youth Hostel
More popular with Chinese travellers than Westerners, this OK hostel is in the thick of the action if it’s drinking you’re after. Rooms are basic but tidy and there’s a cosy cafe area.
