I stayed here for two nights as part of a meeting with staff from the Nanjing mayor's office. I found the hotel staff friendly, efficient and helpful. Checking in was quick and painless. The food in the restaurant was good and plentiful. I had a room that directly overlooked the lake, which made for a peaceful setting. I only wish... More

While this property is dubbed as luxury it most certainly isn't. My room had a moldy shower mat, carpet with dust and hair along the perimeter (never been edged or thoroughly vacuumed) and the walls of the bathroom weren't cleaned (I'll spare you the gory details). No safe or wifi in the rooms. The front desk staff seemed flustered and... More

A true dinosaur from an earlier decade in China with poorly maintained 3/4 star hardware and design (by international standards) matched with no star service at 5 star prices (for a second tier city in China) make for one of my worst stays in a hotel in China (or anywhere in the world actually). When I checked in a 4... More

Decent sized and reasonably well appointed rooms (filthy carpet but lovely views of reservoir). Buffet is sadly lacking in both Asian and Western food types. During off-peak hours don't bother trying to get table service at the restaurant - it just takes too long and too much effort. BEWARE of the foot massage prices/offerings = expensive and kind of sleazy.... More

We came for the October holidays and stayed for 3 nights. In the course of the time were were there we saw 2 weddings a day happen on the grounds. I recognize that this hotel is set up for local guests as opposed to foreign guests, but we found that the breakfast buffet was seriously lacking in foods geared up... More

The resort is 12 min drive from Nanjing center. Rooms are comfortable, excellent service, fabulous view on the small lake. Special note for Mr. Nicholas Chen, Deputy Staff Manager of the lobby area.
