The room allocated to me is decorated in a mix of Chinese and western style. Room is clean though might feel a little small for 2 persons.
Breakfast is typical Chinese style - can get quite busy with tour groups.
Overall, alright for me - room is clean, modern and fairly comfortable and attractive
This hotel is located near city centre, price is reasonable, room is clean and wider than average, there’re good amenities, breakfast was complimentary and could enjoy various foods.
Most of staff can’t speak English, but very kind and hospitable. They willingly accepted my request early check in and keeping my baggage after check out until evening.
I personally won't consider this as 4* hotel . The room is small and all furnitures were very very dated . Bathroom is sooo basic and not that clean . We must be the only couple staying in the hotel for that night because there was no other guest at the reception at all . For breadfirst we were the only two people in the restaurant at 8 am .There were no buffet breadfirst , we were served 2 bows of rice congee , buns , 2slices of bread , 2 eggs, 2 slices of apple and banana . Don't expect too much . However you do get free internet .
We stayed this past Saturday night in Marshall after visiting Jefferson, then the Fire Ant Fesitval. The room was clean, the people were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good. We would stay there again.
Dunhuang is a pleasant small town (small by Chinese standards) that is easy to walk around. The Grand Sun is close to the center of town and a short walk to the night market. It is an excellent hotel with very pleasant staff, although very little English is spoken here. Our room, in the VIP wing, was fine with nice new furniture and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was clean. The included breakfast buffet was good but mostly Chinese. Since we are not Chinese, one of the staff brought eggs and toast and coffee and then remembered the way we liked our coffee on subsequent days. There is a strong in room free wifi signal. The hotel has an excellent value laundry service. In all, The Grand Sun is a great place to stay in Dunhuang and is staffed by very nice people.
