As long as you get here by midafternoon, there's really no need to stay in Linxia, but if you find yourself stuck here, the Linxia Fandian at Hongyuan Lu 9 (tel. 0930/623-0080; fax 0930/621-4412) is a reasonable option with twin rooms in the old wing for ¥180, and better rooms in the new wing for ¥258. Head east from Xi Zhan along Minzhu Xi Lu, then turn down the first street on your right (south).
