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.

... in Beijing. On travelling around Beijing I noticed that public transport in Beijing is very cheap compared to London. For as little as 2 Yuan you can have a one day travel allowance. At the time That I was in Beijing the government was trying to improve public transport so that more people use less of the road. Tienanmen square was a one of the places that I visited that had prior history that has led China to become what it is now. It has great cultural significance as it was ...
... keenly anticipating the grandchildren’s reaction to many things. The different people, buildings, food, customs – not to mention the noise, smells, rubbish, crowds, spitting, smoking - in fact general chaos. I’d imagined horror at the squat toilets and mortified embarrassment at the split pants on the little kids. In fact they took it all pretty much in their stride, with the exception of the smelly drains and rubbish in the streets. ...
... roads for transportation. The families rely on communal toilets which are dispersed between the Hutongs every 100 metres or so. However, it is obvious that they never expected anyone over 5ft to visit the dilapidated alleyways as the toilets have very low windows no doubt to assist with ventilation. Walking down a Hutong my eyes locked with a lone female squatter. Her face reminded me of mum's cats when they looked up at you from the litter tray. ...
... route. Lanzhou lies at the entrance (or exit) of the Hexi Corridor, which is a string of oases in between the Tibetan Plateau to the south and the Gobi desert to the north. This route was the only way to get to Chang'An (now Xi'an), China's capital during the Tang dynasty (618-907). Though the Silk Road predates the Tang dynasty, it was in this time that trade along this route really got going. The Tang dynasty was a golden age of ...
