This is quite a well located and secure hotel. Typical for a Holiday most things are "middle of the road"
Staff were OK, knowledgeable and attentative. Hotel foyer and rooms were a bit old but reasonably comfortable. Price paid was about 502 RMB + tax per night so OK value.
Local metro station is Taojin (about 10 min walk) and the Metro is in fact as easy to navigate as Singapore or Hong Kong, English signs every where, although the queue for ticket machines was long. To get to the Padzhou show you have to change lines a few times but no more than London.
I would stay here again but would also like to try some of the surrounding hotels?
Two negatives although. Give the buffet restaurant a miss, it did not look at all appetising and there seem to be a lot of local restaurants around to choose from. The foyer seating is inadequate, when waiting to meet others many guests just had to stand.
