    An old saying goes, “Beijing represents the last 1,000 years of Chinese history and Shanxi represents the last 3,000 years”. Located in the centre of the Dragon City, Kempinski Hotel Taiyuan is a contemporary hotel that blends European flair with Chinese tradition. The hotel is close to the city’s main shopping centres, such as Tianmei Plaza, Fashion Walk, Wangfujing, Parkson and Lufthansa Centre, as well as upscale office buildings. It is only three kilometres away from Shanxi International Exhibition Centre and guests will need only 20 minutes to reach the international airport by car. The hotel features 363 rooms and suites, all of which are contemporarily designed and range from 40 to 217 sqm in size. Each room is equipped with a coffee machine, wooden floors, rainforest showers and bathtubs. Located on the 30th floor and the 28th floor, respectively, the Executive Suites and Diplomatic Suites offer a separate living room and a sitting area, in addition to extra-large furnishings and bath amenities designed by French designer Blaise Mautin. Guests in Executive Rooms have access to the Executive Lounge, which offers views of Taiyuan and valuable privileges such as a complimentary breakfast, weekend brunch from 7:00 to 14:00, complimentary use of the lounge meeting room for two hours per day plus afternoon tea and evening cocktails daily. Kempinski Hotel Taiyuan introduces global cuisines and brand new dining concepts to the old city as well. A selection of German, Austrian and Chinese delicacies and creative, freshly-baked cakes is offered in the hotel’s seven restaurants and bars. With a complete set of miniature beer brewing equipment and a German brewmaster, Paulaner Bräuhaus is the best place for enjoying homebrewed Paulaner beer and real Bavarian traditions. Grill & Wine offers diners authentic Western grilled dishes and the finest meats from around the world, all of which have been perfected by the Australian Executive Head Chef. Elements restaurant, with views of the hotel lobby’s dangling crystal droplight, features imported seafood, tastes from around the world and Shanxi noodles that are freshly prepared in the show kitchen. Long Yuan is a high-end Chinese restaurant with a touch of Western tradition, designed by a chef from Hong Kong with more than 20 years of experience. Kempi Deli, the signature delicatessen shop, offers freshly-baked breads and cakes in addition to personalised homemade wedding cakes.
