I was just doing an overnight in Hohhot China. My train was arriving about 9:30 pm and I was leaving the next day at noon. I reserved a non smoking room at Pengcheng Hotel, 100 M North to Dazhao Plaza. $13. It was not a long taxi ride from the train station, and when I arrived I was thrilled to see I was next door to a large temple. The entire hotel smelled like a huge crowd all chain smoking cigarettes. When I opened the door I am sure a cloud of smoke came out of my room. I went back to the desk and showed my reservation for a NON SMOKING room. The man came back to my room with me, and I was expecting him to move me to another room. No, he removed the 5 ashtrays from my room! I guess it was then a non smoking room. It was late and obvious I was not going to win that one. I had to run around in the shower to get wet in the morning – not much water. Location was worth the problems, I was able to visit two big Chinese temples in the morning before I had to return to the train station.
