“Hard beds cold and noone speaks English”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Be advised when traveling in china, even the people who work at the concierge don't speak english. Make sure to buy a travel book before leaving the states. We traveled here in December and you absolutely must bring a hate, gloves, scarf and puffy jacket. Unlike the US chinese hotels don't heat their common areas. You must eat inside with your jackets on. bring some capilene under layers and you'll be fine. THis hotel had drop cloths allover the carpet, and the beds were like sleeping on a pice of wood. They don't have a western breakfast, but there is toast. Good luck and be prepared and you'll be fine.

Reviewed 22 September 2013

One of the many hotels we stayed in during our wendy wu tour of China and one of our favourites. Sparklingly clean and beautifully appointed rooms, superb bathroom, comfy beds.

Breakfast buffet was well presented, lots of choice and an opportunity to try a few typical Chinese breakfast dishes if you're feeling adventurous!

Room Tip: Pool isn't always available - chech in advance if it matters to you! TV channels all Chinese...

Reviewed 17 May 2011

+ Quite modern, well maintained and clean hotel
+ Bathroom clean, good shower
+ Safe and hairdryer available, flatscreen TV, bathroom service kit with shampoo etc.
+ Receptionists spoke enough English to cope with check-in and -out and our question to call a taxi
+ the inner court was really beautiful, with a pond and nice flowers

- main problem: the bed. Applying Western standards I would not call it a bed, as it didn't have a mattress, but just a wooden plank covered with 1cm thick lining...it was therefore EXTREMELY hard
- no babybed available (which we knew beforehand)
- the hotel-restaurant did not seem attractive, it was quite empty and prices high. Yet we discovered almost opposite the hotel a truly/original Chinese, really crowded restaurant, which served delicious food at low prices. The menu is purely in Pinyin, though, no pictures.

+- located 200m off one of the main east-west roads of the city, roughly 40minutes to the airport without traffic
+- walls are not sufficiently isolated against noise, however, this is a problem only for some of the rooms, so mention that you want a quiet room when you book
+- room was not big, but sufficient to feel good

Summary: If you manage to sleep on the hard bed, I recommend this hotel, as it is clean and relatively modern for a very decent price
