“Full of cigarette smoke and no staff speak English”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This hotel would be fine if you were a Chinese businessman who smokes. We were a group of Americans on a business trip who had local contacts book this hotel. The check-in took forever because they could not find our reservation. All of our rooms had to be changed because they were all smoking rooms and none of us smoked. The checkout was the worst. We had ground transportation put under the telephone calls portion of the bill, which of course our employers would not pay for. It literally took at least 20 minutes for each person to checkout because the desk staff spoke no English, nor did the supervisor. The rooms were not very nice with dirty carpets and beds that were rock hard (and I mean seriously, about the hardest bed I've ever slept on in a hotel). People were smoking everywhere and we all had "business cards" for Chinese young lady "escorts" stuck under our doors in the evenings. I don't recommend the place at all unless you speak Chinese and smoke.

Room Tip: Make sure reiterate non-smoking if you are a non-smoker.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is avery large hotel, two separate blocks. Nice rooms and real nonsmoking floor, large gym and fitness centre very good equipment and huge outdoor pool. Breakfast is ok , normal Chinese fare but enough for those who like western food. The rates are very good, however it is a bit out of town.
