First. the Sihai Location map is wrong ...it is show as "Tag 9" on the Anshan Hotel Map, ..it is more likely Anshan Inernational Hotel. SiHai is further up towards the top of the page, it is a good ten minute drive to the city centre.
...Beware of the mini bar, most travellers would think, this means beverages and other treats left in the room. ..At the Sihai everything in your room is the a mini bar item, plastis shower caps, sachets of coffee and tea etc ..the benchtops are loaded with things that would be complimentary in any western hotel but here it is all chargeable.
Upon registering you are charged more than double the accommodation cost as a deposit. (my accommodation was 1938 yuan and the deposit required was 5000 yuan).
I was told I would have the difference refunded. I understood that to mean they would take an imprint of the Credit Card and only charge the actual cost when checking out. ....No no no? they actually draw down the 5000 yuan and then they credit the balance to your card, they tell you that the money is back on your card and you can now use it ...no no no? you have to wait the 2-3 days for your bank to process it before you can use any of the money credited back on your card ....make sure you have a fat credit card that can take that sort of hit.
The inconvenience this caused me on my return journey home was nearly catastrophic. That portion of funds locked up, formed my return cost home.
I only became aware of the lock up when I arrived in Hong Kong and I went to withdraw some Hong Kong Dollars for a cash purchase. The wihdrawl was rejected as I had insuffient funds I checked my balance and realised the 3000 yuan had not yet been updated on my card. ...This left me in position where I had to re-think my return journey home. ...Being Christmas Eve, I was left feeling quite humble, as I had to consolidate the remainder of my money in order to get home.
One thing I have learnt about China and the translation of Madarin to English ...don't accept the first logical meaning of a translation, question the meaning for your precise understanding, as you will be caught out. The broad meaning of the translation is correct but as westerners we read more into the meaning of things than what we should.
I have a few more trips to Anshan coming up, but I will avoid SiHai ..."bu hao SiHai"
