I stayed here for 8 nights and it was great. We saved around $800 by choosing this hotel over our other choice. We were a bit worried as our travel agent advised us it only had a 2 star rating but we checked out their website and it looked ok so we went with it, mainly because my daughter now works in China and lived only 200mts from the Hotel. It turned out to be a fantastic choice. The room was modern with a private bathroom, something not all hotels in China have. The restaurant was good with great food available for breakfast lunch and dinner. What it didn't have that brought it down to only a 2 star rating was; no room service, no bar area, no mini fridge in room. However we got around this easily. The main thing we wanted was to keep our drinks cold and we were able to get limitless amounts of ice from the restaurant and we put it in the sink each day and it worked fine. The ice at the hotel was also edible which was a bonus. There were lots of restaurants within 200mts of the hotel in any direction. In particular if you go right out of the hotel then left at the lights at the next corner you will come to a couple of reasonably priced western style restaurants, one does burgers and the other called The Big Smoke is Latin style food. You can safely have ice in your drinks at both these places. There is also an Italian restaurant which is ok but it's a Chinese Italian restaurant so don't expect too much. If you go to Sunlitan Village I can recommend the Union Bar and Grill, it had good food and atmosphere but was a little pricey. Be warned though, China is very noisy so be ready for that. Car horns are beeping endlessly all day long.
