Historical Traveler Reviews Hoi Tak Hotel Urumqi
Bad bad bad...but inexpensive
The Hotel was not what I expected from reading some reviews. The walls were thin. Heard neighbors talking, walking, showering..etc. Pipes were loud and made weird noises. Cheap on the towels, pillows...if you needed more..you had to pay. Need an IRON?....expect to put down a deposit for it. I will never stay there again. I do not recommend it unless you really cant afford to stay somewhere else.
My husband and I ended up staying here by chance, and were very satisfied with the value. I travel for a living and my company typically pays for me to stay at Marriotts or other high end hotels on the concierge level so I was skeptical, but in the end, thought this was a good value. The most important thing to me was that the hotel was clean. For those frustrated with the fact that the hotel is not fancy, come on people, it's $50 -$60 a night. If you are paying that much anywhere, you will not be getting a honeymoon suite. My room looked just like the stock picture -- a slightly dated style of room, but suitable if you want a bargain. The breakfast was good and staff was nice and the location is central and convenient.
Nice place to stay
My family stayed here for a few months while my husband worked at a temp. job. The rates were excellent compared to most. The rooms are clean and the people are friendly.
Pleasantly surprised !
We stayed at the California Suites Hotel for 4 nights in April with our grandchildren and were very pleased. For the price, the rooms were clean, the pool was wonderful, the breakfast was adequate, and the people were helpful and friendly. The inner courts give a nice athmosphere and contrary to our fears it was quiet . The windows do not face the street.We will definitely go there again and recommend it to our friends.
Better than Expected
I was also very nervous about our stay at the California Suites from looking at previous reviews...but I found it a very enjoyable stay. The location is just off the highway, very easy to find (not residential), enough restaurants close by, only about 20 minutes from the ocean, the atmosphere is wonderful (layout, landscaping, cleanliness) and the staff is better than any I have dealt with before - anywhere - they actually cared and gave their attention to the customer. I usually stay in the Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn type hotels and those have been worse than the California Suites. I had a group of 30 teenagers with me and there were no problems whatsoever. I suppose it's all about your expectations going in; I highly recommend it.
I stayed at the California Suites in June of this year. My overall experience was good, no complaints. Standard size room, middle class neighborhood and decent variety in the continental breakfast. For a budget hotel I would recommend, and I will be returning later on this year.
Worst than 1
O.k it was worst than 1 .I mean it was horrible it was louder than new york. I thought because we rented a suite that was $200 it would be great it suked. O.k lets try to tell the truth. It was horrible.
You've got to be kidding
One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. The best thing about it is that the beds are comfortable. The walls are way too thin. There is too much noise around also. You can hear every footstep and voice that goes by your room. Incredibly cramped. Too many rooms in such a small place. Didn't have a lot of things they said they did. My God how can you live without an iron. Not in the best area at all. It tells you something when every entrance to the place has cast iron doors that you cannot get through if you don't have the key. All in all, if you're going to stay in the area, the Motel 6 is way better.
We were satisfied
I was a little nervous reading the previous reviews, but the place was nice, clean, and quiet. I was very satisfied.
We stayed here one night in March. It's in a residential area and reminded me of an old apartment complex rather than a hotel. Calling the rooms "suites" is definitely an overstatement. There are not separate bedroom/sitting areas, just a small counter with an ancient microwave oven and a mini refrigerator that makes a lot of noise while you're sleeping. Dingy decor. Cheap, thin towels. The worst part was an air conditioning unit so loud that we had trouble sleeping. I wouldn't stay here again ... it has nothing to recommend it other than the low rate. Another example that you usually get exactly what you pay for...

... Monroe film "Some Like it Hot"......although in the film they are supposed to be in Miami. We had a full day on the beach.....the sea temperature is much cooler than Florida, particularly the gulf coast. That night we went to Ralph's (a supermarket) and got some food to eat in the hotel and went back for a dip in the pool and the hot tub. On the way to the hotel, we stopped at Walmart and picked up three cheap beach chairs.....these will be useful for ...
It was a bittersweet morning as we breakfasted with Laura and Patrick and then walked together to the Subway station on Markham St for the last time. Toronto had been like a tonic for us - family, fabulous food and fun in a safe and friendly environment. The whole missing luggage saga aside, we felt happy and rested but equally sad and emotional as we said goodbye and set out on our next adventure.
A long day in transit ...
... things I had once known to be true.
* The concept of being look at as a "Balloon Girl" is not a new concept to me.
* I have heard people describe me as whimsical to the point that I had been tossed by whims, inconsistent, and for lack of a better word weak in my convictions.
* The dark and honest truth is when it comes to the scriptures they were describing things that detailed that I was on the wrong side.
* I had given up ...
We left Yuma on the 30th of January and travelled through the mountains during a rainstorm. By the time we got to San Diego in the late afternoon, Stella's newly waxed exterior looked the worse for wear and the car was completely covered in a fine coating of muck. We spent the next day cleaning the vehicles and shopping for supplies.
February 1st was a cloudless morning that warmed up quickly. There is a cycling path that goes right around Mission ...

We left Yuma and headed for John and Bertha's in El Centro. They drove us to the cruise port in San Diego. The Statendam would be our home for the next 31 days. Our cruise will be taking us from San Diego to Peru then back to San Diego. We had a nice lunch on the Lido deck then we just wandered around, familiarizing ourselves with the ship's layout. The Holland America ships are laid out basically the same except for minor things depending on their size. ...
