We stayed here for 3 nights in a double room with balcony. The room is really cosy, beds are very comfortable (a rarity in China) and the room was spacious. The entire room is pine which I think gives it its cosy feel and the bathroom was large with good hot water throughout our stay.
Staff were nice but some struggled with English, however there was always someone around who could speak English that they were able to fetch if necessary. We also noticed Rudi, the general manager was around the area every evening to help if you had any problems.
A good buffet breakfast was available on the site of their sister hotel, 2 minutes away, with a discount for hotel guests at either hotel. There are also many other breakfast options on nearby West Street if you prefer to try somewhere else.
The location is ideal. West Street is pretty manic in the evening and seems like a pickpocket's paradise so we largely avoided it and instead went to the street directly across the bridge in front of the hotel which whilst still a little busy, was much quieter and had some good restaurants. The hotel is not on West Street but in fact a few minutes walk away and the location is in fact rather peaceful with absolutely no disturbances to sleep. The company also owns a number of restaurants and bars just along the road from the hotel which offered good quality English and German cuisine for any Europeans missing the comforts of home! There are numerous Chinese restaurants nearby too as well as many bars.
They also offer several tour options as well as bike rental at pretty reasonable rates and can help you with hiking maps, adventure activities or even cooking classes and Chinese lessons!
One thing I would say is that there were no non-Chinese TV channels available. Apart from that though it was pretty perfect and I would most certainly stay there again.
