I booked this hotel after recently staying in a excellent Crowne Plaza in another part of China. I was hoping to have a similar experience but alas, I was disappointed. Walking into the hotel it looks beautiful but then you check in....
First let's start with the positives. Location was GREAT and the hotel was clean, for the most part. OK, now moving on to the negatives. Service was good but didn't seem as professional as it should have been. Arriving in the room I could see time had taken its toll. The TV was pretty run down and the reception was shoddy. The beds were a little sunken in and the desk/counter running along the wall had water stains. The easy chair also had stains but I cannot attest to what they were from. The pool is small and run by the Swimming Nazi. He was always telling us to stop something (nothing to do with safety). I could not quite figure it out but I think he wanted to make sure nobody had any fun, especially my 3 kids. Be sure to note internet access is $20 USD A DAY and the breakfast buffet is almost $30 USD per person. Overall, I have had better experiences at a Super 8. This hotel needs a renovation and customer service training.
