The profile photo is an accurate representation of its neighborhood but NOT the hotel itself. Don't picture any views from your room as there are no windows (as I had imagined...) Spent 4 nights in this hotel/hostel. It is housed in a refurnished antique wooden house, offers 2 4-bed dorm rooms and other single, double options. Bookings can be made on its website http://www.srising.com/. We stayed in the largest suite for RMB399 on the first night. A lovely antique suite with incredibly hard 4-poster bed, but the chatting noise made by nearby residents rising at 5am was unbearable (it was like right next to my bed). So we moved to the smaller suite for RMB299 for the rest of the stay, which was facing the debris of mass destruction carried out by local government in an attempt to rebuild the city - hence much quieter at night - still incredibly hard bed.
Service was friendly. Reception speaks reasonable English and the place frequented by foreigners and backpackers. They can also help to arrange tours.
The location is excellent, on the tip of the peninsula and within walking distance to lots of sights and next to the river. It is hidden in a very old part of the town where traditional houses in desperate need of help, or destruction crowd the cobble steps. Can be challenging to find at first, but their website gives a clear step-by-step direction.
