Aili‘ is the Chinese transliteration of the name ‘Alley’.   

This modern 4-star hotel was opened in August 2014.   It forms a prominent landmark on the northern entry to Shandan city, visible at night from some distance away.  It is a cornerstone building in the ‘New Zealand suburb’ that is being constructed in Shandan.

It is able to host foreign travellers.
