We went to this hotel after leaving the Ying Ge Hai Holiday hotel. This hotel is located close to the subway, and train station. This hotel is located on a busy street, which could be a problem in finding a taxi. There is a little driveway on the hotel, where taxi's can pull into. This hotel is located near the Marriott China hotel.
We asked for a double bed suite. The room itself has a small kitchenette to the right as you pass the entry. There is no microwave or other method for serving hot food. There was no refrigerator. The bathroom is located across the kitchenette. We had a white tiled bathroom with a large shower. Not the cleanest bathroom. One issue was the hot water fixture did not work as would be expected. Instead the hot water was hooked directly to the water heater, which poses a hazard for being burned. To change the hot water setting, one must stand directly under the stationary shower head. Other than that, the toilet leaked badly enough that towels had to be placed down on the tile to keep from slipping. The living room is just after the bathroom. The furniture was quite worn, but fairly comfortable. There is internet hook up available, but the internet itself was quite slow. Beyond the living room, is a separate bedroom area. This is where the television was located. This room had a large picture window, but the view was average. The bed was hard, but all the hotels we stayed in were similar in this respect. There was a mirror located right next to the window, which was great for applying makeup, as the bathroom did not have good lighting. One other issue we had with the room was the heating system. Apparently, there is a fan for blowing air into the room, but the heating portion did not work. We went to the desk to ask about how to heat the room, and they provided us with a countertop heater. This helped greatly, but may be an issue with families who have younger children.
The staff at the hotel was average. We did utilize them daily, to get directions and ask about train schedules. They assisted us with writing basic directions when we needed a cab. Breakfast or food is not offered at the hotel.
Outside the hotel, one can find money changers readily available. If money exchange is needed, be sure to confirm the authenticity of the Chinese RMBs with the money counter at the reception desk. The money changers we utilized in the front of the hotel were ethical, and often insisted we validate the currency at the reception desk. The money changers also sold cards for cell phones, which we used throughout our stay.
