“Definite language barrier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This is a traditional chinese hotel. Lots of lovely chinese details, paintings and beautiful courtyard gardens.The bedrooms are small but well equipped complete with wooden bath and your own computer. In the late afternoon there is a tea ceremony display held in the first courtyard followed by some chinese musicians. Dinner was a complete disaster. We were brought an Ipad for the menu and obviously expected to choose while the waiter waited. Unfortunately there was little we recognised other than crocodile and turtle. What we eventually selected looked great but we found it inedible. To add to our frustration we tried to order a beer but they didn't understand or want to understand. They wouldn't bring us anything to drink at all with our meal and despite being guests demanded we pay the bill when we weren't finished. We wondered later if it may have been a liscensing issue. Still no reason to be so offensive. There is not a bar in the hotel and we saw the Chinese bringing in their own takeaways. If you fancy a drink with the local trendy youth head to Bar Street in Happy Mall across the square at the back of the hotel.
On the positive side the hotel has a wonderful location beside the Big Goose Pagoda and surrounded by lovely squares and gardens with fantastic fountains and scultures.
The breakfast and coffee were also excellent.
Probably not a good choice if you don't speak any Chinese as they don't speak any English.
