“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Hotel is good.
I was in Nanjing for a visit, the location of the Hotel is good.
Friendly staff with good english knowledge and very helpful.
Rooms are good and clean.
Getting a taxi could be a problem - the hotel needs to improve this.

Nice hotel, room was a big small, but comfortable. Rooftop revolving restaurant was good for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Next to a mall which had a number of choices for restaurants if you didnt like the hotel food.

I and my wife visited Nanjing in July -12. We had made a hotel reservation from Shanghai via Tripadvisor. With high speed train, on a regular basis, it took only 1 1/2 hour to reach Nanjing from Shanghai (distance 300km). We had the name of the hotel written only in Latin letters so the taxi driver had great difficulties in finding the hotel. At the hotel we were very well met at the door and at the reception. The reception is a nicely decorated exclusive great room. Our room was clean, normally large with modern furniture. The staff was very friendly and helped me when I had forgotten my credit card in the ATM machine at the hotel. At the business center at the hotel, the staff was very helpful in helping with reservation hotel room in the next city we were going to. We prolonged our stay at the hotel from two to four nights mostly because the city was inspiring. The hotel is situated close to a metro station and outside the hotel there are a lot of busses running. A visit to the nearby Lake Xuan can be recommended as well as a visit to the temple of Confucius and a boat trip at night in the canals and a visit to the river Yangtze. Nanjijg duck is a salted duck with is a speciality in the city. Nanjing duck is a salted duck witch considers as a delicacy.

The Xuanwu hotel is a good five star Chinese hotel. While not as luxurious or international as the international chain hotels in Nanjing (Westin etc), but it tops other Chinese owned hotels in service and quality; the quality can't be beaten for the price. The rooms are clean and well equiped, internet (both wifi and wired) is free and fast (at least in my deluxe room). All staff are extremely helpful and friendly, breakfast buffet is excellent. Location on top of the subway station is good. Overall, a very good place to stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have travelled to 10 countries in total and stayed in 3 to 5 star hotels in most countries depending on where we are.
We found this hotel to be exceptional in all aspects and one of the best in which we have stayed.
In 4 and 5 star hotels we always choose to stay in the executive rooms with club benefits. These rooms are dearer but usually offer good value overall if you use the complementary inclusions.
The room was very spacious and tastefully decorated with everything you could need including a TV in the bathroom. The bed had a mattress topper on it to make it softer for the non Chinese. It was heaven. The furniture and fitting were of a very high standard.
Although the executive lounge was closed for renovations for this month, everything was done by the staff to ensure that all our needs were met. We do understand that hotels do need to be updated and renovated but would have liked to be advised prior to arrival. However saying this, the extra's provided during this month of closure including free laundry, snackbar and milk and cookies sent to the room each night compensated for the lounge closure. The room was very comfortable and we were happy to relax in it.
Room service and restaurant meals were very good at reasonable hotel prices. Breakfast was the usual full selection.
The staff were exceptional. There is a large number of staff that speak english which we found of great assistance.
The location is within walking distance of a wall gate and also the lake.
We can only speak from our experience of the executive rooms but this hotel should satisfy the most fastidious traveler and offers good value for money

I enjoyed my 10 day stay in Nanjing at this hotel. The service was very nice. The breakfast was great. I did not have any other meals there so I can't speak for the service or food quality outside of breakfast.

The bell staff is top notch. The front desk staff is great most of the time, but sometimes they just don't know what the heck you're saying and they don't try to work on it. My favorite part, though, was when they realized in an accounting reconciliation that they had converted my money based on Euros rather than USD. That made them come up short a few bucks. They about had a cow calling me and trying to get me to hurry up and come back to the front desk to take care of it. It was kind of irritating, really.
