We chose this hotel after reading some other reviews and it was perfect. We stayed for 9 nights, the hotel and room we stayed in was clean, modern and comfortable. Breakfast had a lot of choice both Chinese and western buffet style. The hotel staff were amazing, spoke good English, helped book trips and taxis and directions to places we... More

Stayed here 3-5 April 2015. The hotel had beautiful décor that emphasised its Chinese heritage. There are shadow art performances in the evenings, and staff were happy to answer queries on shadow art. We appreciated the way the hotel was actively promoting Chinese culture. The lobby was beautiful, with the shadow art stage and the glass ceilings. It was almost... More

Taxi drivers will drive to hotel, but don't pick you up there. I'd definitely stay there again. A chance to experience a bit of... More

It's not in a tourist area, so there aren't lots of tourist restaurants around, and not much... More

Although we knew beforehand this hotel did not have a restaurant we thought there would be no problem finding places to eat locally - wrong! The local area is very basic and not particularly appealing and we struggled to find somewhere clean and with meat we recognised. We considered getting a cab to the city centre but none came to...
