They couldn't find out reservation via Agoda, but more than made up for it by placing us in one regular room and one executive room. The executive room is all you could ask for. Great layout, big TV, roomy closet with a safe and everything you could need or want.
The other room, however, was below par. Ignoring the ugly soviet era decor, the bathroom stank of raw sewage. This is not unusual for Lanzhou, since anywhere you go has whiffs of sewage and all public (and almost all private) bathrooms smell the same. But we expected more from a five star hotel. We would have changed rooms but they were full.
Besides that, the beds were very comfortable and the staff were prompt and attentive. We could always speak to someone who spoke english eventually. The breakfast buffet was above average. There is a great gym and pool. You can even get a fruit plate if you don't use the disposable bathroom products, and you can request one of a dozen different pillows so you sleep sweetly.

We climbed the wall and strolled along the top roadway getting great views of the city below as well as the moat that surrounds ...
... to visit Beijing stadium. The stadium lights were amazing and I am sure if you had the opportunity to visit Beijing from London you can see difference of presence between the two stadiums. I also found that the Beijing stadium was much more cheaper than the London stadium in relation to construction costs. It's amazing how the differences is so massive yet London stadium is no where near the spectacle of Beijing.
Beautiful city with good housing. The British colonized ...
The much anticipated family visit has come and gone. It seemed like ages since we'd seen them and I couldn’t believe they were really coming. I wondered how much the grandchildren would have changed. They’d grown a bit, but after a momentary reticence they all seemed pretty much the same.
Itinerary planning involved trying to find a tricky mix of things to interest the children while still letting the adults have a good time. I would ...
... clear we have paid too much for Wolfang's services" I replied. The doorman relayed my comments. With that the both chuckled and coughed up phlegm balls the size of oranges and spat them as if in sync across the pavement. If spitting was a National sport the Chinese would fill the podium. Men, women and children alike spit at will and consequently you need to take particular care not to get in the blind spot. Wolfang took off and the Starbucks ...
... and his Chinese wife, Tina whom he met just two years ago on his last trip to Tibet, we were able to tag onto their plans and secure a ride to the Yading International Youth Hostel. Tina with her ipad definitely enjoys coordinating the details. As a native she also managed to book us a discounted ride to Yading for the next day.
Based on a recommendation from another Chinese traveler in Shangri la, the five of us enjoyed a ...
