“Nice Hotel - Good accomadation - Would stay again”
Reviewed 30 July 2011

Nice hotel, along the lines of the holiday inn standard. We didn't take food and didn't see a bar, that said we had travelled 20 hours from UK.
Staff polite and helpful, english is spoken but simple normal tasks only.
Beware of TAXI's plying trade on the Hotel parking lot. We were "picked up" by a women taxi driver, it was a half red taxi (different company's have a different colour), and the witch we reckon had left her meter running from the airport. It cost 90 yuan for 5 miles tops, she badly ripped us. We found it best to hail caqbs from the street. It gives them less time to think. Make sure, the meter is at the starting rate, e.g.9 yuan, then listen for the ticket machine, any different then stop. Hotels slightly to blame, only in that the concierge should have eyeballed this persuasive lady. It's a simple beware, most taxi's are honest, but beware the lady in the half red at Hotels in the morning (after the airport to hotel drop).
Good hotel though, aircon worked well, nice view too.
20 mins walk to the shops at Jusco (like Tesco/Karstadt/) etc.
