I was glad that I did. The location is excellent, about one third the way down Nanjing East Pedestrian Street. The location is popular for 5 star hotels with the... More

Room and amenities weren't new but clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable. And on my birthday night, the hotel nicely prepared a birthday cake in my room for... More

The hotel lobby was over-the-top and... More

After backpacking around China for 3.5 weeks we were treated to 3 blissful nights at this wonderful hotel. Cannot fault it. Perfect location, staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, beds were like sleeping on a cloud...... I could go on and on and on. Honestly if you can afford it just stay here. You won't find a better hotel in... More
