    An excellent find in this far-flung city, modern Atour has well-trained staff, cheerful contemporary decor, and bright, comfortable rooms. The breakfast offers well-made western and Chinese selections and lots of fruit, and instead of the usual complimentary Chinese tea, there is Twinings Earl Grey. It's 900m from Guyuan Museum, a 10-minute jaunt along Xicheng Rd.

    Yinchuan Hotel

    Yes, it's an old-school clunker. Yes, a pompous grand classical portico greets you. Yes, a vast dusty chandelier hangs from its capacious lobby ceiling. But the location is excellent, and the rooms are huge and a bargain. For ¥148 you acquire a colossal room with swirly carpet, flat-screen TV, and more-than-acceptable beds. Note that lower-floor rooms facing the street can be noisy.

  • Lodging in Zhongwei

    Flourish International Hotel

Despite the hotel's aesthetic eccentricities, the service of its staff, from front desk to the servers at breakfast, is laudable, and the rooms on all of its 18 floors are very comfortable.
