Located out of town this small hotel has a nice ambiance with very pleasant and helpful owners. The rooms were comfortable enough however are in need of fixing especially the bathroom. The food was good and we loved the fresh watermelon juice.

An unusual place set in the grape vines just outside Turpan, the Silk Road Lodges was very comfortable. On the edge of town, it had a village guesthouse feel. Ashkar and Mukaram, the managers, looked after us very well. They spoke excellent English and were...More
