Where to Stay in Jiayuguan | Recommended Jiayuguan Hotels 2020/2021

People would like to stay in Jiayuguan for one or two days to visit the Jiayuguan Fortress, the Xuanbi Great Wall, the First Strategic Post, as well as other attractions. Influenced by the geographic environment and climate, the overall accommodation condition in Jiayuguan can not be compared with those luxury hotels in developed cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, and its capital city- Lanzhou. However, there are still lots of starred mid-ranged hotels including comfortable guest houses, hostels which offer a nice stay during your Jiayuguan Tour.

Main Place and Area to Stay in Jiayuguan

The main attractions of Jiayuguan can be reached from the downtown area by car within half to an hour, and there are barely any accommodation facilities around the scenic areas like Jiayuguan Fortress and the Xuanbi Great Wall. Therefore, travellers are recommended to stay around the downtown area of Jiayuguan City where you can have more and better accommodation choices.

Tips: It’s suggested to visit the Jiayuguan Pass/Jiayuguan Fortress in the daytime and return to downtown for accommodation because there is not any tourist accommodation allowed in the fortress area.
