Gloria Grand Hotel Nanchang
Ranked #12 of 721 Hotels in Nanchang
Reviewed 18 March 2011

This is by far being a terrible hotel as some reviews have said. For a western standard hotel I would give it 3 stars. The rooms are very clean, but definitely dated. Furniture is old, but the carpets are newer. The beds are rock hard. Amenities in the room are quite good, as is the internet and choice of TV stations with many English channels. The food in the lobby restaurant is decent but uninspired. The Chinese restaurant located on the 2nd floor is very good. Service trough the hotel is outstanding.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week. The internet (by cable) is fast. The bed is large but very hard. The room needs to be refurbished (the wallpaper and the carpet need to be changed).
The air-conditioning is turned-off at night, staying only in the Fan mode. in the morning the room is very hot. Terrible...
the restaurants have few options that are not chinese food. if you want to eat a hamburguer or a pizza, you have to call the room service.
In the hotel we can see a lot of couples with chinese children being adopted.
I stayed in the 17° floor but i could hear during all night the cars honking.

We stayed at the Gloria for two weeks when we adopted our baby girl. I have to say after reading the reviews of this hotel from this site and other sites, I was seriously concerned. I was completely surprised when we arrived and checked in. The hotel was very clean, the rooms was not too small, and the staff was amazing. Being parents for the first time, we were sometime unsure of ourselves. The staff was wonderful. They catered to our every need. Most of, if not all the staff we dealt with spoke English, which made our stay a good one. Included in our room was free high speed internet (ethernet cable), that was faster than any of the other cities we stayed while we were in China (Xi'an, Bejing, Guangzhou, or Hong Kong). The beds are hard, but we found that is just the way they are in China. We stayed in 5 cities over a 3 week period and everywhere we stayed, the beds were hard. The linens were crisp and clean.

We only ate breakfast in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was adequate. The location was wonderful. A pedestrian only area with shops and restaurants was an easy 10 minute walk away. Teng Wang Pavilion was also a 5 minute walk away.

By no means is this a newer hotel, but we found it to be comfortable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The room was dingy and smelled like old tobacco, even though it was a no-smoking floor. The bathroom was slightly mildewy.

The internet in-room was free and fast - ethernet cable.

I did see one small cockroach around 4 am one night which crawled out from under the TV and then ran back into the TV after I tried to kill it with a shoe. Fortunately that was the last night of my stay.

The breakfast buffet is average but if you order from menu for lunch or dinner it isn't bad.

The hotel itself is convenient to the historic pagoda. The staff were generally pleasant although most had limited English skills at best.

We adopted a baby from Jiangxi China and did not have a choice in the hotel we stayed at. Our time there was for 5 days and the cigarette smoking was awful for someone who is allergic to cigarette smoke. I got no warning whatsoever so I was miserable.

The rooms are old but okay. The service there was nice and the people were friendly and the food okay. I had just a very difficult time since they do not distinguish between smoking and non smoking like they do here in California.

We also asked to be moved and ended up with more guests that smoked in our non smoking vacinity. We complained but there was nothing they could do rid of of the smoke. Our agency said the booked us a non-smoking room but that was just words.
If cigarette smoking does not bother then stayimg at the Gloria Plaza is fine.

We spent about 6 days here. It was very easy! Beds were extremely hard
but linen was beautiful and clean. Rooms serviced daily. Chinese food in restaurant was good to my western palate, plenty of Chinese customers too, smoking allowed while dining as per many Chinese establishments which i found uncomfortable.

Coffee just awful, take your own. English spoken but some difficulty at times, communication tricky with porters and service ladies. Staff seem sad, they work very hard. We gave our maid a tip and she eburst into tears...not sure this was a good response or not.

Laundry facilty is first class but expensive, use tiffanys over the road.
easy to get into the city, Teng wang Pavillion close by. Great views from the swimming pool and fish market worth an early morning stroll nearby.

All in all, a very easy place to be, but certainly far from 5 stars.
