“decent hotel but terrible location”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

The hotel was much better than expected in terms of quality and service, but the location is TOO FAR from the airport to be convenient unless you have business in that part of the city. The 45 minute taxi ride from the airport was about 60 RMB, and you MUST order a taxi the day before you want to return to the airport because there are simply no available taxis in the neighborhood. Every single one that drives by on the very busy street next to the hotel is occupied - guaranteed.

It’s a 20 minute walk to the city center and on a hot and humid afternoon, it’s a depressingly long and uncomfortable trudge.

The room was comfortable enough except that the bed was as hard as the floor and there were only two small pillows.

The breakfast was adequate for the Chinese palate but Westerners will find it entirely lacking in what they expect for the morning meal

In all, it’s an acceptable value for the price, but the location is too much of a handicap to consider a return engagement.
