nice hotel with good service; the breakfast buffet had good coffee and plenty choice and starts at 6. so great for an early start. Its a pity more expensive hotels like to charge for use of internet where it is free in cheaper hotels.

Reviewed 6 November 2010

The room itself is not bad, but there are many problems: 1) no English TV, not even CCTV 9 (now called "NEWS"), 2) very few electric plugs, 3) bed is hard and full of old cigarette smoke, although I stayed in a non-smoking room, 4) you cannot open the windows, which actually might be a good idea as there is a lot of construction outside of the hotel (Nov 2010), but the AC makes trouble - in the evening to hot and in the morning the room was a fridge...

The Internet is free of charge, but as the system looked like wanting to install something on my Mac - which it failed of course, I preferred to use my wireless 3G China Unicom card. Really do not use Windows in China, too many viruses and bug around here.

Breakfast was only Chinese, except for toast that had plenty of sugar inside. No bacon, sausages etc. And the orange juice consisted out of water, sugar and some orange flavor.

If there is no other hotel in Nanning, this is an OK place to stay at. Shower is working and the rooms are quite clean. But if you can stay in another hotel, do yourself a favor and do not stay here.

There are two sections of this hotel. I suspect the unhappy reviewers on this blog were staying in the old section which rooms start at about 80 yuan. (There are 2 separate entrances even)
I stayed on the 6th floor of the new section for 318 yuan for a twin room. (singles were 368)
It is quite lovely, has a computer in the room, a refrigerator and a BATHTUB/shower! Very large bathroom with lots of counter space. Probably 6' with also about an 8' bathroom mirror. I couldn't be happier! No sewer smell either! A very nice breakfast is included with the room rate & has enough western food. A McDonalds right down the street, KFC also & Pizza Hut. Just past Pizza Hut on the left is a big Walmart where you can get just about anything. VERY close to the train station too.
Photos follow.

I picked this hotel based on its excellent ranking here. I guess rankings are relative so maybe the others are worst.
This hotel is old. I initially thought the room had some charm. Actually it is not bad although the bed is really hard. but the bathroom had a foul smell. Also the buffet was the worst I have ever seen in China (and i travel a lot there).
The location is good. Free ingternet and free mini-bar were good thought. and the price was right. But not a great experience.

I have been to the hotel three times now and each was great. The staff was doing everything they could to ensure that my statement was good. My wife would book the hotel each time I came, as she is from Nanning.
The rooms were always very clean and if I needed anything, they would quickly bring it to me. The rooms have a small refrigerator with various drinks, and if you stacks. You are allowed to drink and several things a day without payment. They have a clean water was for you to drink
The morning buffet, was ok, but my wife preferred to eat at other places. My wife is from Nanning, and we would eat at places she liked there. Across the street is a great little restaurant, with the best dumplings.
You may have one article cleaned and ironed each day free of charge, which I used. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
Before you leave and they came at the they will send someone to check the room for damages, you will be expected to pay for all and any damages. I had to pay ten Chinese dollars for glass that my wife broke. Which is OK.
