This was our first stop on a Wendy Wu tour. Upon arrival we were originally given a smoking room on the 9th floor- smelt like an ash tray and was small and gloomy. After speaking to reception we were upgraded to an executive non smoking room on the 13th floor. Amazing views of the city from huge windows full length of the room. Well worth paying for an upgrade if you dont get allocated one. Only problem was that the room was noisy due to the traffic, but ear plugs did the trick. We discovered from other wendy wu guests, that if u had a room even higher, the windows had a second layer of double glazing, which shut out any noise.
Very comfortable kingsize bed and modern bathroom,with lots of complimentary items. Tea and coffee facilities and mini bar( all chargeable but very reasonably priced.
As i was waiting on my lost luggage from Air China, we chose to eat in the hotel restaurant, as we had booked an extra night before our tour started.
There was no english menu but pictures of every dish , so easy to order. We chose 4 dishes plus rice and 2 large bottled beers. The bill was aprox £20, and the food was tasty and generous portion sizes.Staff used google translator to communicate with us, which we appreciated.
The restaurant and bar closes at 10pm, which is typical throughout China. The guy behind the bar was not particularly friendly, but it had good wi fi reception and prices werent bad. Dont expect to get wine in China, its not common, mostly bottled beers and spirits on offer at bars and restaurants, with a few exceptions.
Breakfast room was nice, cornflakes,fruit,yoghurt,croissants and jams. Bacon,boiled eggs, beans,frankfurter sausages. Huge selection of chinese dishes if u fancy that for breakfast.Also there was a station for fried eggs and omelete and a toast machine.Fresh orange,coffee and tea, although i couldnt find a decent coffee anywhere but international coffee shops throughout China.
Dry cleaning service available . Tv was large flat screen but only CNN in english.
