“Eva Inn is nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This is a nice hotel, and somewhat romantic since it is near the Li River(just across the road) You can see folks dancing and enjoying the park near the river from your room. The rooms are small but clean. Be careful of tourist traps nearby.

Room Tip: Just be careful in the restaurants nearby. There is an internet cafe just down the street.

We thought it was a very nice and clean hotel. We really liked the rooms. The restaurant was delicious and very well priced. It was well located too. Staff were OK but I didn't think it was great service. They had a travel agent onsite and was terrible. They didn't speak at all English and didn't try to help either. Great value for money!

The location is convenient found after searching. Booked the hotel through travel agent CTS. It was tween bed double room. After checking in found the carpet was dirty, Lamp shed was old and marked. Surprised that complelementary free bottled drinking water are not available. We were charged for using the botled water. This hotel has policy to make money from travellers purchasing in room utilitis eg snacks, condom, crisps, etc - It is like mini convenient store inside hotel room, not seen in other Hotels in this catagory. Never have this experienced.

Room Tip: You have to pay for bottled water.

+ve :-
*Locatoin is good to all amenities and places to eat and see.
*Food on the 7th Flr Hotel is reasonably priced which is quite surprising IF you want a quick meal and NOT wanting to walk to the pedestrian mall behind.
-ve :-
*Foreign tourist/non-speaking Chinese will require guide service to get around or else get duped by over-zealous scalpers waiting outside the hotel.
*The female front desk personnel needed to do some PR courses in interpersonal skills to improve their attitude towards foreign non-speaking Cinese customers. One female staff(Cant read her name tag) was rude and loud to me whilst I was checking in on 25th Aug and since then, HAS NOT attended to me thusfar when I am the front desk. Almost everyone except the supervisor and mgr are unable to converse in English.

Room Tip: Great Location hotel ,BUT female front desk staff need an Attitude ReAdjustment course

you can tolerate the smelly lobby (from smokers), depressing corridor carpets, and waiting for the local tour groups to finish their round during breakfast.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

This hotel is pretty good, but just a few small things let it down. It’s on the river, tick. It is located close to decent restaurants, bars, shops and massage, tick. It has clean and comfortable rooms, half a tick. It has LAN Internet in the room, tick. However, it doesn’t have any English speaking staff. Also, the checking in and procedure takes a very long time. There is the usual key deposit issue which we encountered all over China and there was an obvious staffing deficiency. It’s a 40 room+ hotel and at the time of our check out (8am) there was one person at reception who isisted on trying to check three separate groups of people out at the same time and answer the phone every few minutes. Very frsutrating.

The rooms are nicely done for the most part. Ours had one very prominent spit mark that had slid it’s way down the wall, but hey we were used to that after being in China a week, so we just asked house keeping to give it a wipe. The funny thing about the room was that it had all this stuff for sale in it. It was like a mini-mart. First there was the well stocked mini-bar, including instant noodles. Then there was the manicure kit, some nice shampoo, a shaving kit, two condoms, some “man sex oil” and some “lady sex oil”. So, it was nice of them to try and anticipate our needs. The instant noodles were certainly appreciated.

Breakfast was a basic buffet with some surly service staff. We ate it and then had to pay for it when we checked out. Best to eat brekky at one of the many nicer places near the hotel I think.
