“"Smelly Rooms"”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

We arrived at this hotel late at night after a 15 hour train journey from Xi'an. The room was freezing the remote control for the A/C was in Chinese, fair enough but there was no English instructions or guide to it in the room. The staff were unable to help us with anything as none were able to speak English and we had conversations with them through Google translate. Very funny but frustrating.

We made a booking for three days but checked out after two even though we had pre-paid for three due to the smell and condition of the room. The overwhelming smell of garlic coming from the drains and stains on the carpet were unbearable. Wasn't in a great location but only stayed to see one of the three gorges and dam.

Over all if you can't speak Chinese and don't like over whelming smells of garlic avoid at all costs. Great hotel across the road called the great wall, not sure of prices of rooms but the restaurant was fantastic, great food, worth checking out.

But don't expect very much from them, just a few words but very friendly. The rooms are new and clean. Is located a bit far from the city center but taxis in the city are very cheap (flag-fall 3yuan). You can arrange a visit to the three gorges dam for 150yuan per person and they pick you in front of the hotel. Also you can use the cafeteria-restaurant, is expensive (25 yuan per dish) and no too much good but is the only option for eat in 500m arround. If you don't know chinesse and you need a cheap place, even for bussines, is a good idea book here.

Stayed December 2009, travelled solo
