“A difficult night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

I book this hotel thru e-long and I would like to say it is my wrong decision to do so. If you really want to book this hotel do it directly at their webpage. Originally my stay at this hotel was from 27/10/11 - 30/110/11 but to my horror when I get there they did not have my booking record, so after few exchange of words, they gave me a room without windows but could not promise to give me a room with windows the next night. The hotel manager was sorry about this blander and offer to compensate us with breakfast, but the problem is that we don't want breakfast, we want a room with better ventilation. My grandpa, aunts and mum complain that the room smells and there is lack of air, which cause them headache and giddiness, they can't sleep for that night. In the end we went looking for a hotel that very night and found a good room opposite the hotel, therefore we check out very early the next morning and move there.

Room Tip: Get a room with windows or else don't stay at all

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

when I first booked this, I was expecting the worse but when I entered, this hotel surpassed my expectations. However, don't expect 5-star service or luxury appointed rooms.

Rooms are spacious and clean, in my opinion similar to the chain of Orange Hotel in China but not as good but not too far off.

Bed is comfortable in Chinese standards

Location is just 3-mins walk from Zhongshan Rd which is a plus.

I would recommend this hotel to those who goes budget but still want something decent.

Room Tip: double beds rooms are bigger according to my experience.

The facilities in the room looks new as I heard it was opened in 2009. Overall impression of the hotel is good as it is well located beside the vibrant Zhongshan Lu. The price is also reasonable for my 4 nights stay, breakfast at only 15 RBM per person.
