A great choice for a stay in Taiyuan, Chateau Star River Taiyuan features free airport pick-up service (available 24 hours) and a nightclub. You can visit the health club for a workout or unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge. There's a children's pool and 4 indoor tennis courts, and rooms at this luxurious hotel get the details right with hydromassage showerheads and bathrobes.
Pros: Nothing good, all bad experiences!

Pros: Beautiful, large rooms. 15 min from airport
Cons: Far away from anywhere but airport--taxis hard to get and nothing is within walking distance.
