“Acceptable for a 3 star hotel not 5 or 4 stars as they claim”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

The hotel is not that nice located. The view was a good one, on the city wall, but it was very, very noisy starting from 7 o'clock in the morning. A big junction is near so the horns sound right into your ears.The taxi to the center was not expensive.
The room was very large, old furniture, but ok. A problem - as in most of the hotels - is the smell inside. Here the carpet I believe was the problem. The most annoying thing was that after the first night there I had some itches on my body and some small red dots on my legs. The next morning I found the cause: some small insects in the bathroom that looked like flees with wings. It took me 2 weeks until I managed to get rid of the itches.
The towels looked like rugs - not all of them, but most of them.
The staff was ok.
Don't give them the card for deposit, give them cash! They unblocked my money after one month even tough they gave the receipt upon leaving as the money were unblocked.
Go and take the taxi from the street, don't order it at the reception.
The breakfast was one of the best we had in China: a large variety, American/European breakfast, fresh products, helpful waitress. We also had one dinner: very expensive, and disappointing not because of the food (the food was ok) but because they actually took what we ordered (duck breast) from the containers that were on the designated tables for the persons that had the dinner included in the hotel rate. And they sell it to us at a triple price!

Room Tip: If they have, ask for a room that will not front the street in case you want to sleep well.

This hotel was more basic than others we stayed in on our tour. Still comfortable and a good nights sleep was had. This was the first hotel where we were bitten while we slept. Free wifi in lobby area.

Good variety for breakfast.

Big hotel at a very busy junction....with a big name! Even with a room at the back of the hotel and on floor 17 the street and traffic noise was huge andvthe room was very hot. Ancient furnishings of course. The radio was a time piece as was the TV. Breakfast was a rammy. Handy small, very small shop next door to get water and beer. Hotel is close to the spectular city wall which is splendid at night.

Room Tip: Hmmn. Maybe they had exceutive rooms tucked away some where

This hotel would pass for a 2* as it was generally very grubby and their health & Safety needs a review as our room had 2 exposed electrical cables joined with tape. The staff could speak very little English, not even understanding knife, fork, spoon, cup etc. The were also very badly trained (At breakfast I caught one blatantly picking his nose, both nostrils, then flicking it on the floor!). The bed was more of a board but apparently this is normal in China.
The best thing about it was he roundabout in front of the hotel. Many spare minutes spent in amazement as the Chinese dice with death going around it, both ways & on foot!

Stayed here for 2 nights on a Wendy Wu "wonders of china" tour last month (Sept 2013).

Was in a twin room which was rather large.

Beds are hard but that's standard in China, but wasn't a problem for a great night's sleep.

Supermarket within 10min walk.

wifi only in the downstairs lobby.

Hire a bike and ride along the City Wall. A lot of fun.

Room Tip: room overlooking the city I liked.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a Wendy Wu tour. The hotel on face value looked ok when we arrived, but it was downhill from there.

Whilst I expected the beds to be hard, and I like a firm mattress, I think it would have been softer sleeping on the floor. Luckily I was in a room on my own, and could sleep on the doona with the other 1/2 to cover me. Not ideal, but it was a bit better.

The first morning there, my toilet flooded, not pretty or nice, and whilst they sent someone up to fix it fairly quickly, I'm not convinced they cleaned the bathroom very well afterwards. Several other members of my group had similar issues.

The food was very average, but ok. Don't expect anything exciting there unless you want Chinese food for breakfast. Their idea of western food leaves a lot to be desired.

Overall, the hotel was tired, not particularly clean feeling and as others have mentioned, in need of an overall.

This hotel was probably once very grand but sadly it no longer is. The room was huge with a very large bed (firm but ok) and a large bathroom, the breakfast was ok, and the hotel is close to the city walls but this is where the positive ends.
The rooms are all very tired and badly need a makeover, the carpet was filthy and there was a significant amount of mould in the bathroom which could have been improved dramatically simply by replacing the silicone around the shower and bathroom fittings. The shower leaked and flooded the bathroom floor. The air conditioning was useless. The place stunk of cigarette smoke and the windows and curtains were dirty.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone not on an organised tour and therefore has a choice of where to stay. Unfortunately we did not have this choice.
