The hotel seemed decent enough. The mattress was firm but comfortable. The tub had a high rim, making it a pretty high step to get in and out of the shower. The furniture seemed a bit dated but in good condition. Breakfast was a buffet with Asian-style choices and the food tasted fine. Note that unlike many American hotels, the doors to the rooms are not on a hinge, so they won't close on their own, and like hotels I've been to in Europe, you must insert the tag attached to the key into a slot near the door to activate the lights.
The location was awkward. While being across the street from the train station was convenient, having to pass through the station's paid area to get to the metro was a bit of a hassle. The hotel provides passes that let guests pass for free, but this doesn't help for passengers arriving by metro, as we were, since we didn't have a pass yet. What we did was get off at the Houyi metro station and walk the few blocks to the hotel from there. If there was an easier way to get to the other side of the train station (or if the metro station had a exits on both sides) it would be an improvement, but there's not much the hotel itself can do to fix the situation.
