Three reasons not to stay at this hotel:
1. Dishonest staff
2. No hot water
3. Poor room heating
Stayed here on Nov 27, 2011 for one night. On check-out, they witheld my 100 yuan room key deposit claiming I burnt their kettle - the one that sat on the shelf unplugged and unused throughout my stay. I did not touch the kettle at all yet their staff member adamantly claims she saw it plugged into the bathroom outlet when she came in to fix the heating unit while I was out - note that I had the room key with me that turns on the power to the room so not only was she lying about seeing the kettle plugged in, even if it was it wouldn't be on. I suspect they switched the bad kettle in when they came in to fix the AC unit or on checkout.
My guide argued with them and finally gave them 50 yuan so we could go. This is definitely a scam.
The AC heating unit was inadequate for the size of the room so be prepared for a very cold night.
In addition, the hot water was slightly less cold so forget about taking a shower.
