the Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport is the nearest airport and the nearest train station is the Anyang Railway Station

convenient Hotel(s)
Anyang is not a big city, so any hotel won't be too far from the sights. From the SUPER 8 ANYANG HONG QI ROAD Hotel (find it here along with other hotels in Anyang) it's a fairly nice walk to the Yin Ruins (but not a short one)
