After some messing around with a booking at another hotel we were guided to the Lakeside Holiday Inn. The location is good with The Bund and Nanjing Road within easy walking distance, but the corridors could do with a good clean. The corridor carpet on the third floor was filthy and had a musty smell. The rooms were clean and... More

Located right next to the motorway and beside an underpass, this has no lakeside view at all, although it is next to some water way. We suspect our floor was recently renovated so our floor had a thin layer of dust and a view of neighbouring buildings. Breakfast was very local Chinese- thin water congee with pickles, pumpkin, soya sauce... More

we stay only for one night at this hotel, and everything is standard. Nothing special and nothing worst. Located only for 3 block from Nanjing shoping area, about 10-15 minutes walking from exit Metro station at Henderson Mall. Not to hard to find this place, just follow the direction and you'll be found easily. They are located just front of... More

Where do I start - there is no English traveler information such as Metro maps or tours. The reception staff speak very little English. The Internet pc is in Chinese and I couldn't work out the control panel menu to find the correct panel to change the language. Of my six day stay I had maybe three days of hot... More

We were shocked to see how dirty the bathroom was, especially the shower stall, it had lots of hair, grime, tiles seemed to have never been cleaned. (Changed room once, we were given a bigger room, but condition was about the same.) Same condition around sink faucets. Dirt and dust everywhere else. Shower didn't work properly, with no consistency in... More

Booked through hotels.com, seemed an ok option for the price. Stayed for 3 nights. Rooms were clean and fine. Overall hotel could you some more cleaning. Breakfast doesn't have much too offer, but we booked it upfront as a part of package so we tried to eat some dumplings and toasts. Staff is ok. The best thing was location- close... More

At $25 a room (we booked through Hotels.com), you cannot beat this hotel for its location. Only 5 minutes walk and you're at the Nanjing East metro station on Nanjing Road. But don't expect too much at that price. The hotel's common areas need a bit of Pledge and some elbow grease - you can write your name in the... More
