Hmm...We happened to be in Jieyang for one night. Local people said it's the best and the only five stars hotel in the area. So I asked my Chinese colleague to book the rooms for us. CNY481 per night with breakfast for two people.
The lobby looks grand and promising. Staff are nice, speaking only Chinese. We booked two non-smoking rooms. Once we got to our floor - the 19th, the smoke odor was overwhelming, too much. If you like to smoke, this is the right hotel for you. If you're not the smoker, stay away from this town or maybe China (I don't see any other hotels that look better than Rong Jiang but I was there for only one night).
The rooms were dated with stinky carpets. One room was fine but the other (next to it) was terrible (my room). I'd say this is a good three stars hotel.
The breakfast wasn't great with limited Western dishes selection. I had toast, butter and eggs.
If you can't speak Chinese (Mandarin and etc), don't bet on that they will be able to communicate with you in English. I was so frustrated at check-out, they couldn't understand English and I can't understand Chinese. I guess it was my bad to stop for a night in Jieyang and stayed at this hotel.
Thanks goodness, we're now in a better hotel, the real five stars in Shantou - The Meritus.
