We only stayed here two nights. Nothing about this hotel "wowed" me. It was just so-so. The room had an electric kettle and refrigerator. It had a hairdryer, but it was such a low speed that there was little drying power. At the buffet breakfast there was not enough food for our group. When dishes were empty they were not... More

This hotel is okay but I would not give it a five-star rating. The hotel was clean but the rooms did not match the great looking lobby. Yet, I would return there because the staff is so accommodating and tries very hard to please.

Right on the River LI with wonderful views of the old city and river. Walkable to the old town across the river. See the fisherman at the river's edge and laundry being done too. If only wifi in the room.

Stayed here one night following a Reliance tour package. Hotel may be ranked 5 stars locally but would rate it 3 stars at best by international standard. Exterior of hotel and the rooms are very dated though fully equipped. The hotel lobby looks very grand but the rooms did not have the same look. What was off putting was the... More

Stayed there a couple of nights in January - very obviously the off season, as we saw very few people around. The room we had doesn't appear to have been updated since it's inception and was definitely in 1980s decor. That aside, it was clean and tidy, though definitely not a 5 star even by Chinese ratings. We seemed to... More

Our room overlooked the Li River and the river walk. Great view of the river and the mountains. Although the hotel is older, the room was comfortable, clean and the service great. The breakfast buffet options were both Asian and Western with an omelet station. The hotel has wifi available in the lobby. It was within walking distance to town... More

I consider several factors in choosing a hotel, then rating it afterwards. I also try and get hotels that have character or a feel for where we are, or the type of trip I am on. In other words, when in Prague, I don't want the Hilton. 

Reviews by others are very important, and we do our homework. Also considered... More

The hotel is in a convenient location, and we enjoyed our stay here. As others stated, the beds are firmer than many like, but we found them comfortable. Wifi was available in the lobby, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Our only complaint/concern was the electrical wiring, which we found to be substandard and franklky looked dangerous.

Our Smartours trip booked this hotel on our trip in May 2013. The hotel is conveniently located and directly across from the riverwalk area where we enjoyed the locals exercising in the morning and strolling at night. The service was typical of a hotel during Mao's reign. The Wifi was free in the lobby, but the signal cut in and... More
