“Average Service Apartment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Rooms have only partial seaview and reek of cigarettes even though I've requested for non-smoking floor. I guess in China there's no such thing as non-smoking areas. Things inside the room are aged...Need overhaul. Lobby is on level 7. Ground floor lobby belongs to The 3rd Space... another hotel/service apartment. Hotel is walking distance to the Olympic Yacthing place and cab to anywhere is less than RMB15. Also walking distance to popular food street Yun Xiao Jie, where you find loads of seafood and BBQs.Popular names doesn't mean they are good.

Nothing within the hotel. But as you come out, to the left is a shopping mall with supermarket, Starbucks, cafes, etc. To the right are 2 convenience stores and a Japanese bakery with good cheesecakes and coffee.

Room Tip: All the seaview rooms have direct afternoon sun... Room is very hot especially during summer.

Good Location in QD
Staff were Okay
Not great value for money, the block and the rooms smell.
Very Poor dirty carpet
Useless kitchen with little to no equipment.
hard to find even with a local taxi, reception on 7th floor with no access to building as its card entry only (secutiry just ignore you even though you are standing at the entrance with luggage (not a great start)
You will find better value for money in QD

Room Tip: Sea view is miles away dont bother.

I really wanted to like this place. It was difficult to find a service apartment in QD. We needed a kitchen and laundry. We booked the 52m Apt on Agoda for about $85 usd a night and reserved 11 nights.

The front desk staff was very polite, friendly. Very kind. The room and building were the problems. Great location, but the building is an office building. The apartments are on the upper floors. The building smells like smoke and is dated. The room we received reeked of smoke. Housecleaning had done their best, but the carpets were old, stained, the shower moldy. The kitchen was tiny and unusable with a mini bar fridge, microwave and no kitchenwares. Had we stayed, we would've had to toss our suitcases from the smoke smell. It was the worst I've experienced in china and I've traveled quite a bit here.

We booked another room in a hotel, cancelled and left within two hours. For the price, you can get a great hotel in QD.
