We enjoyed our stay here. It was our first Chinese hotel and the room was clean, comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom with plenty of hot water. Towels were changed daily even though not requested which was a nice touch. Breakfast was good, hot and plenty to choose from.

On first impressions this hotel looks the part. It has just been refurbished and looks very classy. However the attitude of the staff from the managers down was terrible. We found them unhelpful, rude and unfriendly. The language barrier cannot be blamed for this as most spoke English and its easy to smile and be happy in any culture. The... More

The rooms are spacious and clean. Our room was on a higher floor. The bathroom was huge with a separate tub and shower. The buffet breakfast had a vast array of choices with everything being delicious. The Chinese Restaurant on the second floor was also very good. It is very close to a neighbourhood park and The Jewish Museum.

Breakfast buffet was delicious catering for all tastes. We were able to access free wifi in foyer and lounge areas. This was a very busy hotel, but we were... More

Hotel is good but internet really sucks. They have only one LAN connection and that is only nearer to working desk. No free WiFi makes it even harder to access internet casually especially in your smart phone. subway is nearer. little far from the central area to go by walking.

Average place, walk to metro station takes about 10 minutes. The room and facilities were pretty good. But the counter service should be improved. 地點尚稱方便,距離地鐵站步行約10分鐘。房間以及相關設施都很不錯,但是接待人原服務態度有待加強。

Stayed for 2nights as part of tour. No problems clean and comfortable. Good breakfast considering catering for many nationalities. Staff very efficient. Fairly centrally located, short taxi ride to central area.
