Only 2 Western hotels in Nanning and they are a block away from each other. Right next to a large shopping mall with excellent western and Chinese restaurants and a movie theater.
Room was decent size with a western style comfortable mattress. Also, included the largest flat screen TV I've seen in a hotel. However, no English channels except Asia News. The TV does have outlets where you can plug in your computer and there is free internet.
There is a decent gym with newer equipment an an indoor non-heated pool. (For the summer only)
The restaurant buffet is mostly Chinese and the western menu is overpriced. Walk to the mall next door for meals.
Service is rough though. English is not spoken well and I was given wrong directions for a restaurant.
Here's a secret for this hotel though. Don't book with Best Western or any of the U.S. based hotel sites. You will get an overpriced room with the only advantage being you get some English channels (like HBO) and a DVD player. These luxuries will run you about $75 more a night.
Instead book with Chinese site elong.com (Owned by Expedia) or ctrip.com. Both sites can be viewed in English and do not need a credit card to book a room. The best part though is you can get a room here for half the cost of the American site rates.
At about $70 a night, the hotel is a decent deal on these sites.
