When we opened the door to our room (#24) on the 21st floor - first thoughts were WOW!!
The decor on first glance was stunning - for a low cost hotel.
However on second glance the carpet was old, worn and dirty and there was a large dark stain right in the middle of the seat on the arm chair. These two things really spoilt the awesome decor.
The bathroom was large and all marble.
The view was absolutely incredible as we looked straight out over a stunning view of the inner city which at night was awesome!!!!!!!!! Great for photography!
We enjoyed the location as we had come to see how China really is without the facade. The old markets were wonderful and you can witness how China is and has been for hundreds of years.
Breakfast was okay. Local restaurants have good food - although all Chinese.
The room was very well equiped - even with bath robes and slippers.
Very few people understand or speak any English.
The staff were efficient but surly and cold - no smiles from anyone. But this is common in China.
I would advise all travellers to give the 'steamed buns' (which are the staple diet) a miss. Western stomachs cannot digest these and my friend ended up in unconcious in hospital with blocked intestines! NOT nice :(
