Clean & comfortable room for a good price.
Staff was helpful and speak some english.
The hotel is ideally located in Tian He, 100m from the Shipaiqiao metro station (exit d). Despite one or two connections to go downtown, going anywhere in town is very easy and fast (connections are quick).
Several shopping malls are within 5mn by foot (Onelink, Tai Koo, Grandview, Pacific Digital, MoPark). Very good and cheap restaurants are located next to the hotel, or the Deluxe (more pricey) for good dim sum in the onelink mall.
Easy to find with a taxi.
We had daily complimentary milk and biscuits in the rooms for the Spring Festival. I did not pay for breakfast, as the soup restaurant next to the hotel is providing top meatball soups, and as there are several bakeries in the grandview mall, and a costa coffee in the onelink mall. Price on site was 15% cheaper than Book***.com (local price was including the 15% tax. On my second visit, I paid 238CNY per night instead of 273).
Very very cold in winter (february). The in-room ac system does not warm. Avoid the deluxe rooms numbered xx01 as they are at the corner of the building with two walls connected to the outside, and then very cold, prefer rooms xx02 or xx03.
We learnt on check out that the hotel was providing small heaters (learnt that too late, I had bought one for a cheap 200 CNY in the Gome shop across Tian He road, 100m away). No bathtub in standard rooms (large cabin shower instead), and bathtub is not that convenient in the deluxe rooms. No seating in the lobby.
