We reached at 12 midnight and depart the next day noon so practically didnt have much time in the room. Taken the family room and it consist of 2 double bed. Check in, wifi, room facilities and everything seems to work smoothly. Great to take a morning walk around the lake in autumn. Near shopping centre (ard 500m) with some... More

Compared to other Chinese budget hotels this one is much nicer. It has many locations around the city. If I come back to Nanjing I would book this place again. Close to the metro, great wifi, helpful staff, clean rooms, and a good price.

A bargain priced hotel perfectly located on the edge of Xuanwu Lake, right beside the Ming Dynasty city walls and only a short walk from one of the city’s main shopping areas, Grand Metro is a bit of a gem - but only for confident / experienced travelers (and / or those that speak Chinese). The hotel has certainly seen... More

Overall I was impressed with the quality of the room for the $40 it cost. The location is great! It's right next to Xuanwu Lake and Park, the gate is about 200 feet away. It's also only about a minute walk from the metro line. If you're into some higher end shopping there are two large shopping complexes not far... More

The hotel has flaws. But it has all you need at a very affordable price (around $40). The location is nice, next to the metro station.

Simple small hotel. Rooms simple and adequate. A little shabby around the edges. Staff speaks limited English. Located right at the entrance to the beautiful Xuanwumen Lake with fascinating activities day and night - flying kites, Tai Chi, Opera Karaoke, Chinese checkers, dancing, boat rides. One block from the Xuanwumen subway stop. 2 blocks to a small supermarket and Starbucks.... More

We came after 9pm. The bar/karaoke that was just next to the hotel seems to be dominant. You can smell the cigarette smoke in the lobby. Difficulties that we had was the language barrier. There was a misunderstanding on whether the room has already been paid or not. But two thumbs up for the patience and friendliness of the staffs... More

This is one of the many hotels in the world which are calling themselves "upper class/5star" and while nothing is wrong with them, they aren't absolutely the best. Still, nothing to complain either, you're in good hands here. The hotel does have quite a lot of foreign guests, so they're used to speak English and "Foreign wishes" everywhere in the... More

It was so convenient. I arrived at the railway station. Took the Nanjing metro to Xuanwumen station. Got out and the hotel was just 100m from the station. The beautiful Xuanwumen lake is just at the doorstep. The shopping and eating district at Hunan Road is also within walking distance. Hotel is clean, and meets my expectations of a 3-star... More
