Close to parkland and the city center, this hotel is a convivial and lively base for exploring Luoyang's sites. Situated on the busy Zhongzhou Road, the Luoyang Peony Hotel has easy access to buses and cabs and lies within walking distance of Wangcheng Park, site of the Peony Fair. About a ten-minute drive from downtown Luoyang and the train station, this property has been recently redecorated and is now as aesthetically pleasing as its namesake. Rooms are nicely furnished in natural tones and bathrooms are slick and modern and provide bottled toiletries. English TV channels are available as is Western food, although it would be shame to miss the onsite restaurant's Cantonese cuisine. From here, the Longmen Grotto is less than 30 minutes away by car.
