This is a very nice hotel. Room is spacious. Beautiful lobby with an amazing lobby lounge. Location wise, its a bit far from the city, but its not necessarily a bad thing if you want to avoid the heavy traffic in the city area.

The Kempinski is by any standard a large sumptuous hotel, shaped as a elongated "s" shape. It is located in a development area of Xiang and thus its location is not that good. Taxis into city OK but out can be a problem, especially on the weekends. The "s" shape results in a variation in room sizes. Those rooms on... More

If you've travelled much in China, you've probably slept on a few beds that seem to be slabs of wood covered in sheets. Not here! Best bed ever. Soft, without being soggy. And the cover and pillows were as light as feathers. Felt like sleeping in a cloud. OK - what I imagine sleeping in a cloud would be like!... More
