RAYFONT Hotel consists of 4 toers, each with ~40 floors. It is an older hotel but clean and comfortable. Well suitable for business visitors who use the room for sleeping only. There are only 2 elevators in each building. As the hotel is usually very busy, one needs to be patient when checking in and out. I will definitely come...

spent 4 nights here. 1 adult business traveler. booked through ANA package deal with my flight from Japan. Arrival was no problem. Checkin was a hassle. It was about 6pm and there were about 10 people in line and only 2 clerks at the front desk. Neither of them spoke either a little English, and both had bad, impatient attitudes....

This hotel was a bit of a let down, the room had wall paper peeling off the walls, Being English speaking made it hard to check in as the person serving me knew as much English as I knew Chinese, I was fortunate enough to have a Chinese speaking person who was able to come and help the check in...

The hotel staff was helpful and responsive when I reported my refrigerator was not working. Safe also not working and Heat/Air had not yet been turned on for the winter (so no heat for the room). The room was reasonably clean and cleaning staff was good. Breakfast had mostly Chinese offerings (well...we WERE in China after all)...but there were pastries,...

Decent room and service. Great city view at night. Convenient location. Close to Sun Moon Light center for lots of great food choices as well as metro station. Booked last year and this year again. Hotel is getting old.

Upon arrive the hotel looks very modern, especially the outside of the building. But when checking into our hotel, I was invited to a small room with very little to offer. The tv was very static, we had to fix our own toilet every other flush. The shower was moldy. The pillows was very thin and uncomfortable. No extra pillows...

So so so disappointed with this hotel. Upon arriving, an inexperienced and rude staff member told me she couldn't find my booking. She didn't try and help me or search for it- just said sorry bye. I then just stood there feeling rather dumbstruck and was wondering if the staff would have the decency to look into their computers to...

This hotel has very bad wifi. They also have violated the privacy of our travelling group because they exchanged personal information of passports to one another. The communication is a weak point for sure. The room is very small. Toilet doesn't flush properly. Look at the wallpaper of this room. It is not so clean here. Furniture in the lobby...

The hotel itself has seen better days, and is in need of a refurb - but this was reflected in the price. A six night stay set me back around £215 (but I could have had eight for the same price) through STA travel. No swimming pool as far as I could see, and had problems with aircon and room...
