“Pretty Bad”
Reviewed 1 June 2009

We got a cheap rate for the Overseas Chinese Hotel - Rmb 218, but pretty soon wished we had paid more and got a better hotel.

Location is pretty good, right next to central bus station and some restaurants nearby. Reception is fairly efficient, but not much English spoken.

Problems included - yellow tap water; tepid to warm water from shower;very noisy and cold air conditioner even when set on 'low' and 30C; as fairly normal there was a lack of English TV channels and very slow internet (although was free); also no hair dryer in bathroom.
