It looks, feels and smells like the best days of this hotel are way behind it. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't stink, but over the years it gets that specific smell especially since it is mostly smoking hotel. All rooms are "standard" which means that you have to upgrade your room if you'd like double bed instead of twin, or a river side view. Riverside could be a nice upgrade since the hotel is very close to famous Elephant trunk hill.
Even so, rooms are clean and there is enough room for all your stuff. Bathrooms haven`t been renovated in some time.
Wifi is free open access but with terrible connection speed.
Staff are struggling with english but you'll get used to it in China.
Hotel advertises to offer pickup drop off at the airport, but when we arrived there was nobody from hotel waiting for us. Later we found out that it is service payed extra.
Overall, we were satisfied and would recommend it as a sleepover place.
