Having spent 4 days at this hotel,2 at the start of a 16 day holiday and 2 at the end,firstly I have to say, I cannot fault the actual hotel..It is beautiful,well placed and very clean. My problem arose when I first arrived and needed to change English notes into currency.Having been in China previously I had no problem changing money in any of the hotels,but in this instance, although the exchange rate is clearly shown at the desk, they refused point blank to change my £50 note.My tour guide suggested perhaps to try a smaller note, but as we were on our way out I left this until later.I tried again later with a £20 note but was still refused...result being I spent 1.5 days with no cash, fortunately none was required, as the tour director went in his own time to stand in the 30minute queue in the bank of China for me.On returning 14 days later....still very disgruntled, I noticed that in the room the booklet of information clearly stated that All major currencies could be exchanged.With said information book in hand I headed back down to reception,with the intention this time of requesting the manager.However whether it was the blue leaflet in my hand I will never know,as when I presented my notes I had them exchanged with no problem....Upshot is, take some local currency with you to avoid this problem.
