You do not have too many choices of hotels in Turpan, so this hotel might turn out to be on your shortlist.
The only positive thing I can say, is that it is extremely well located, right across the street from the bazaar.

Everything else was a let down, very dirty, I am not sure when the rug was vacuum last, dirty bathroom with chunks of hair in the shower. At least the bed was clean, this was the most important.
Hotel was very noisy, for some reason Chinese people like to hang out in the corridors and keep their room door open (for cross venitlation I guess) since it was warm already and the AC had not been turned on.

Turpan remains a great place to visit and I quickly forget that hotel, if you decide to travel to Turpan, I guess you are already a seasoned traveler and know what to expect in terms of accomodations.

Room Tip: Avoid getting a room facing the street, it will only add to the noise level

We paid 230 yuan for our room at the "Transportation Hotel", after the receptionist who could not speak any English called a tour operator called Ali Baba who translated for us. The hotel is conveniently located next to the main bus station and across the road from a nice market.

The room was quite nice, clean and well equipped (broadband internet included). The bathroom wasn't the greatest, but the Chinese seem to be completely incapable of building fully functional bathrooms anyway so that was no surprise. The beds were very hard, as is common in most Chinese hotels. The Chinese breakfast was fine.

Overall, very good for such a low price.

The hotel is right next to the busstation and on one of the main streets, so it's easy to find and in a good location. It doesn't look very good from the busstation side, but the rooms are fairly modern. The bathroom was okay, but a little dirty. There is a flatscreen TV in the room and there's A/C, but no refrigerator. One of our twin beds was missing one of its feet, so it wasn't entirely straight. I thought the price was a little high (238) for what otherwise was a fairly good room.

We walked in without a booking and were provided with a twin/standard room for 180Y per night with breakfast (after negotiations). The advertised price is 480Y/night; however, it is not worth that price, so negotiate.
The small room was clean and tidy with a modern style. Towels smelled of bleach, so no worry about cleanliness of those. Beds are rock hard, but have comfy, clean pillows and blankets. Room comes with a kettle, mugs and tea. TV appeared nice, but was all Chinese, so we couldn't even get out of the first menu! Gifts in the room included slippers, shoe shine mitt, soap, shampoo, body wash, toothbrushes, and combs. However, in the 3 night stay, we only received one more soap. We really didn't care as we had our own stuff, but don't expect refills if you are someone that relies on hotel freebies. Room service enters each day to make beds and empty trash bins. They leave the doors wide open when working, so don't leave valuables. No WiFi.
Despite recent renovation and the appearance of newness in the foyer and hallways, the room's condition was not exactly that. The sink was not connected to the drain and therefore just ran onto the floor. The tile was in poor condition, probably due to the sink issue. It was all functional, just not great.
The staff was generally friendly. There was one young woman that spoke English, so we usually had to wait till they could find her. One annoying aspect of the hotel was that our card key became unactivated each day. We had to have our card reactivated each afternoon we returned to the hotel, despite us paying for 3 nights up front. I'm not sure why they did this, but again, we usually had to wait till they could find the young woman to speak with us and reactivate the card.
Overall, we were pleased with the hotel, especially for the price.
Note: the front of the building says Transportation Hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in back room. It was quiet despite the bus depot.

We moved to this hotel after a rather unfortunate stay at the Turpan Hotel. While far from perfect, the Traffic Hotel is a much better choice than Turpan Hotel, and we had an adequately comfortable stay. Located by the bus station and the city bazaar, its central location is a boon for most tourists. Good restaurants are hard to come by in this part of town but the nearby night market offers a variety of delicious local food choices.

The room and bathroom are clean and quite generic - you get most of what you'll expect out of a three-star hotel. We were told the hotel had undergone a renovation in recent years so the furniture is more well-maintained than most 3-star Chinese hotels we've lived in. The hotel turns off air conditioning from October so you have to open the windows for ventilation. Unfortunately, the hotel is located in a rather busy part of town and the honking of traffic and noises from the nearby bazaar can be a real pain.

Breakfast was served in a separate building across from the hotel. Like most Chinese hotels, the breakfast isn't fantastic. It comprised congee and a variety of pickled and plainly-cooked vegetables. If you're not used to Chinese-style breakfast, head to the bazaar next door for fruit and freshly-baked naan instead.

Overall, we had no huge complaints about the hotel, perhaps because we had stayed in Turpan Hotel, which in our opinion was far worse than Traffic Hotel, the night before.
