The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel (Dunhuang Shanzhuang) is a Chinese-Hong Kong joint venture and is the most luxurious accommodation option in town. The hotel captures the spirit of the Tang Dynasty with its unique architectural design - the large rooftops and long corridors of the Han and Tang dynasties; the typical enclosed courtyard style design and mud walls of the northwestern part of China; and the replica of the late Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties furniture. All these work together to recapture the flavor of a bygone era with their simplicity and use of natural building materials.
The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel is situated against the backdrop of the picturesque Mingsha Sand Dunes. It is 25 Kms from the airport and 130 Kms from the railway station. It provides convenient access to the major scenic spots such as Mogao Grottoes and Mingsha Hill. The hotel is located 3 kilometres south of Dunhuang's city centre, a convenient 20 minutes' drive from the airport, and 30 minutes to the stunning Mogao Grottoes by hotel bus. You can watch the sunset over the great Gobi desert from the comfort of your hotel rooms.
The Silk Road Dunhuang Hotel offers different rooms ranging from ancient courtyard villa to modern style western rooms that blend with Chinese architecture. The Suites are furnished elegantly in the Ming Dynasty style. All rooms allow you to enjoy an ever-changing view of the great Gobi Desert under the sun.
