I enjoy the Hongyadong area of Chongqing, and have stayed in other hotels in this area, but this was my first time here. The hotel is located just to one side of the Hongyadong Cave complex, overlooking the river. The reception is surrounded by nice gardens, and the front desk staff were polite, helpful and efficient. We were on the 7th floor which meant taking two lifts to our room. The room was a delight, a magnificent view over the river, nice bed, Flat screen TV, well equipped bathroom, desk, free WIFI, in short everything you would expect of a hotel of this standard. They even provided free earplugs in case the road noise disturbed your stay. The location allowed us to walk to the nearby bars and restaurants so everything was perfect until breakfast time arrived. The cafe restaurant on the 5th floor was staffed by somewhat surly staff, the breakfast was limited to a set choice, steamed bread, sausage,and fried egg. My partner cannot eat pork so asked for an alternative. There was none and the staff were quick to point out that he couldn't have anything extra either. This plus the lack of tea or coffee somewhat soured our stay in what was otherwise a very good hotel. I would have preferred that they hadn't offered any breakfast and then the review could have been so much better.
