This is a 3 star hotel.
I'll get straight to the point. This hotel was terrible! I had pre-booked this hotel for 5 days and when arriving at the front desk they had no record of my booking. After 10 minutes we finally figured everything out and I decided to pay in full. When getting to my room the floors were not very clean (had hair etc.) and near the bathroom the floor was wet. I later realized that in the bathroom the floor was peeling up and off from around the drain and the water was seeping under the floor and into the carpet. The room had a musty smell for my entire stay.
On the second day, I went to open my hotel room and the card was deactivated. I had to go to the desk to sort it out. I figured no problem these things just happen but it happened again on the fourth night and they refused to re-activate it unless I pay an additional 208RMB. Again needing to argue with them and refuse to pay more, they gave up. They reactivated my card and I went to my room to get my receipt to prove it was paid in full. When showing the front desk the receipt (I was holding it up for them to see but not take), they tried to take my copy from my hand.
In sum, the hotel was bad, poor customer service and I didn't appreciate someone trying to cheat me. This hotel is only 28RMB from the airport and the taxi driver probably will try to charge you 100RMB. Refuse any deals and point to the meter. Hohhot on the other hand, is a really interesting city. There are many things to do if you look in the right places. I would recommend visiting Hohhot.
Hope this helps.
P.s. I have been working in China for more than 1 year and have adapted to the differences in cultures quite well. I can speak enough chinese to understand and explain what I want so there was no language barrier during my vacation in Hohhot.
