For me, my room is very clean. However, I don't like the glass door of the toilet. Not very comfortable if you're staying with your friends. Pros: Near shopping complex and easy to get muslim food nearby. Staff was very helpful. Cons There's no wifi and you have to use the computer at the lobby. Breakfast is very simple. Not... More

This hotel lacked customer service and other than that for the price you paid that's all I could say negative about it. If your a fashion market shopper it's smack bang in the district. You can walk to the jewellry market, Baima market, the underground tunnel market, the sex wholesale market. I took the executive suite and it was plain,... More

The place is definitely way over-priced and over-rated. Location is not necessary quiet and rooms are super small. Bathroom is clean but blanket is not. I do not like any spots on my bed or blanket. Wi-fi is available but slow. Breakfast is ok, definitely better than any other hotels I'd stayed at. The reason why I won't ever stay... More

The room was very clean in comparison to many of the nearby hotels. The beds were a little small. Apart from that, it was good, especially the security. The location is near to most of the prime locations for garment suppliers. You can find good seafood and noodle within a minute of walk.

Rooms are modern, clean and pleasantly appointed, Everything works, bed is comfortable, and nice bathroom. Internet access in the room is available but only works intermittently. Front desk staff do not speak much English. Breakfast buffet looked good for chinese options, but very limited western breakfast (which reflects the clientele in all fairness). I would not stay in this hotel... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel. The last time was many years ago and I checked in near mid-night. This time, I got a better look around and walked around the hotel a bit after checked in before dinner time. Unless you are looking for a budget hotel at a "budgeted" place in China, you... More

We stayed here five nights. The staff is very friendly. Most at the reception speak English. Breakfast is cool if you like Chinese food (not Westernized). During convention events the breakfast is better. Bathroom amenities and bottled water included. Close to the garment markets.

Visited this hotel a few years back and loved it. Rooms are very clean with complimentary water. It is located within walking distance from the train station which was convenient. Lots of places to eat near this hotel. After staying in many traditional hotels or B&B like hotels in China, it was a great change. Hotel staff friendly and answered... More
