“----- Dirty Place, But The Staff Members Are Nice ------”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2008

The place is very dirty and looks like it's falling apart. The worst thing was that they didn't clean the bathrooms a single time in the 4 days we spent here. In China you don't throw used toilet paper in the toilet, so you can imagine how it stunk.... Staff members were helpful and nice. The only plus.

Staying at Bob's was a strange experience indeed. To start with I need to say that everything was "acceptable" with the room. Nothing was too luxurious, but everything was clean. They were obviously trying to get everything right at the time. To be honest it was a little bit like Fawlty Towers watching Bob's interactions with the girls that work there and one day there was a, close to, emotional mutiny when they were mopping the carpets?!!?! It is a little bit outside the centre, but excellently located for the station and visiting the wall. Bob was very helpful, but his man-management skills are hysterical. We have a more "frank" review on our website if you check our profile.

  • Liked — Watching Bob's increasing issues with his working staff
  • Disliked — It needed more work doing to it
  • Stayed April 2006, traveled as a couple
