"No wifi, little English"
But still, I gather, the best option in Kashgar. Biggest problem is that few people, if any, at the check in desk, speak even passable English, making even the basics of checking in a huge hassle.
There were 100's of Gobi March race folks staying in the hotel, and it's possible that that is the reason there was a freakishly high level of security, or maybe there'd been a threat on the hotel? but in any case it was unsettling to see teams of army men with submachine guns and big clubs parade through the lobby -- or sitting around it in a glass room just off the entrance -- all day, every day, doubletiming with 6-8 person SWAT teams, and on our first day there a 24 hour "drill" with three firefighters on our floor (the 8th) (at either end) and a firefighter on the first floor standing at attention by the elevators, again, for the entire day. Very creepy.
The room's AC didn't work very well, an issue because there was a continuously barking dog in the courtyard below the windows requiring that they be closed.
And finally, their expedia ad says that they have free wifi when in fact there is and never was NO wifi in the entire building, with, instead ONE computer at the front desk listed as the "business center" for which one might have to wait 40 minutes to use, not to mention that the keyboard and browser were lined up in and for Chinese. EXPEDIA SHOULD DEMAND THAT THEY REMIVE THAT FALSE ADVERTISING!
Recommend it only because it's the best in a town of even worse options.
