We stayed for a night at the Shanxi Grand and were just looking for a place to lay our heads. The hotel exceeded our expectations, which were quite low, based on reviews and pictures.
What was good: very friendly staff, flexibility with check-out time, good breakfast, large room, good location, decent view from the room, adequate wifi.
What wasn't: dated lobby, garish light-up, staff speak only Chinese, tired rooms and decor.
The positives were all important to us, while the negatives weren't, so we were quite happy.
One odd thing, though: we booked a room that said it came with "one breakfast", thinking it meant one breakfast for each of us, but it turned out one of us had breakfast included while we had to pay for the other. It wasn't too pricey and the spread was good, but we felt it was an extraordinarily strange package to be selling.More
