From Zhgngye Railway Station to hotels
We are considering XiYu International Hotel and Zhong Qi International Hotel. Which is closer to the station?
Answers (1)
Answered by Kala | Aug. 12, 2019 18:57

By distance, Zhong Qi International Hotel is closer, around 4km. XiYu International Hotel is around 10km away. Zhangye city is not a very big city so the distance may not be a big issue if you will use taxi for transfer. Personally speaking, I would prefer XiYu Hotel.
