I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights recently and I have mixed feelings about it for the following reasons;
My superior room was a good size, well maintained and clean and had a comfortable bed.
Excellent location; you can walk to many places from the hotel.
The hotel is within walking distance of a subway to get to and from the main train station.
The staff are friendly although not much English is spoken (not that it should be however it would be helpful)
Smoking is permitted in the hotel and stinks in the corridors. They try to mask the smell with copious amounts of cleaning fluid - which makes it smell worse! This is after China introduced the no-smoking policy!
My room was at the back of the hotel and had 2 double glazed windows which unfortunately did not drown out the bass from the nightclub(s) underneath/in the alley alongside the hotel and was annoying! I was on a high floor too!
The swimming pool was not open and there was no outdoor space to sit when I just wanted to read my book for an hour. So I sat at the front of the hotel and being a 'foreigner' was stared at the whole time I was there.
The hotel was eerily quiet and didn't really have an atmosphere, with no one in the lounge or restaurant on both evenings I was there, or at all through the day to be honest. Although breakfast seemed to attract more people. This hotel seems a hotspot for those staying 1 night whilst on a tour.
While my room was nice the noise from the nightclub(s) and smell of smoke/cleaning products throughout the hotel were a problem for me and for that reason I wouldn't return unless they did something about it.
