As the other reviews state, the location is ideal. That is where the advantages stop. Prostitutes great you at the lift, there is no wireless in rooms and the cable connection doesn't work (at least in my room), and press the wrong switch and you'll blow the circuit board leaving you in darkness. Breakfast is very ordinary, with cold grissle... More

The hotel is not the luxury one but it is a really convenient for us to visit the city we could walk to may places near by. I stayed in the room on the high floor, it is clean and quite comfortable, i liked the view over the area. Breakfast with plenty of foods i tried Chinese food as well... More

Large hotel in good location. Nice room with comfortable beds .Tea and coffee in room, robes and slippers. Very nice breakfast with both Western and Eastern style food. Plenty of fresh fruit. Helpful staff. Better than expected from a city hotel. No complaints

This hotel was a huge disappointment. The lobby has exactly two chairs which is a problem as the only wifi is in the lobby. Also makes it difficult to wait for someone or socialize. The rooms are small compared to the other places we stayed. The breakfast was very average and the seating inadequate. The worst experience was the massage.... More

Location is a few blocks from the Jian Temple Metro station. You have to cross the pedestrian overpasses. There is also a mall next to the temple and tourist 'friendly' restaurants. The hotel itself is OK. I think it needs more lounge chairs in the lobby area though since it is the only place where they provide free WiFi. Usually,... More

After reading some of the reviews for this hotel I was expecting the worst, thankfully I did not get it! We were expecting firm beds, which is what we got but I think its fair to say they are not so uncomfortable that you cannot sleep, we actually slept very well. The air conditioning worked fine, the rooms were spacious,... More

We stayed here in September as part of a Gate 1 Travel tour package. The beds were hard-luckily I had been warned about hard beds in China and took a small backpacking air mattress which made all the difference. The included breakfast was fine- combination of Western and Chinese selections. Location was just a few blocks from the subway, so... More

The rooms are very tired with stains on almost every piece of furniture. The bathrooms were covered in mould which is not unusual in China but I rarely have seen it growing down from the sinks. Air conditioning did not work and in the middle of summer this made sleeping almost impossible. Breakfast is below average with pastries stale, everything... More
