For some alternatives, look at the Grand Boss Hotel and the YUDO Excellent B and B. They are 35 kilometres and 30 kilometres respectively from the center. Wotif also suggests the Parplay B&B and the Mandy's House B&B. The first is 30 kilometres away from the city, while the second is 25 kilometres away.
If you'd like to check out some close by cities, check out Sanxing and Yuanshan. Head 20 kilometres to the northeast from Datong and you'll find Sanxing. That said, Yuanshan is 25 kilometres to the northeast. Accommodations in Sanxing include the In Lulls and Sportshome B&B. The Phoenix beetle ecology homestay and Spa Minsu are some of the better ones in Yuanshan.
If sport gives you a buzz, go to Xinzhuang Sports Complex. It's to the north of Datong. Those wishing to hit the hay close to the action can select from the Four Points By Sheraton Taipei, Zhonghe and the Taipei Garden Hotel.
Hotels in Datong start at AU$103 per night. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
