Arrived at the hotel lobby, only to be greeted by a freezing cold lobby. Apparently the heating was out of order and with the only wifi available in the lobby, it was a pain to hang around the lobby for more than 10 minutes. Only redeeming factor was the polite and courteous staff at the front counter. However, the staff turned down our request to call a cab on our behalf, citing that Ibis does not offer such a service. I mean, how hard is it to call a cab? There was no other way out of the dreadfully boring and drab vicinity the hotel is located in, and quite impossible to hail a cab out in the freezing cold. So the only dinner option was a Chinese restaurant located in a building that is connected to the hotel. The food there was cheap and edible, RMB180 for 4 of us. Breakfast at the hotel was simple fare, eggs and toast and some veggies and other carbohydrate options. Mineral water can be bought from the front desk in the lobby. Even though it is a non-smoking hotel, the local Chinese guests were obviously chugging away at their ciggies and we had to put a wet towel at the bottom of the main door to prevent the smoke from coming into our room.

All this being said, for the economical price of this hotel, Ibis did serve its basic function.

Very good value for money.Staff is helpful and kind. Front office staff very helpful.Some problem to convey a message in English,as most of the staff do not understand English.If one needs to have a dinner at the hotel on the ground floor, check and confirm the rates before placing the order.Or you may be overcharged by the cashier.

The hotel was relatively new but the condition of the room and bathroom was shocking. Big enough room with wide windows. But when we arrived, the floor was dusty and sticky. The bathroom and sink, downright dirty. It was as if someone had just checked out and the housekeeping gave the cleaning a miss. The bed was hard and bed sheet was spotty. Staff speak limited English. The receptionist even insisted on charging us half day rate for checking out 15 minutes past the normal check out time. Thank God for a gentleman who clarified the whole situation with a smile and gave us some tips on the city. Location wise, it's situated next to a busy street with lots of taxis passing by. Hailing one is a different matter though.

I stay with another colleagues here for 3 months, the servers are very friendly and helpful, esp. one young lady in the restaurant Ms.Gao. She's always welcoming us with a big smile. The hotel management team is also wonderful and providing us very personalised service. General speaking, the hotel is value for money, good location and staffs are very well trained!!!
