“Blecchhhhhh......don't stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Check-in: staff speaks minimal English; if I didn't have a bilingual friend with me it would have been terrible.
Rooms: nice size, stained carpet, dirty walls, OK furniture, grubby stained bathroom. Old TV. No wireless internet in hotel rooms, unless you are on the executive floor. Everything stinks of cigarette smoke. Bed was hard. Linens and towels OK. Bath products OK.
Ambience: long dim hallways, with stained carpet, reeking of disappointment and cigarettes.
Location: far from city center.
Breakfast: decent choice of Chinese food; Western food was awful.

This is a hotel that probably was nice when it opened but the management has let in become exceedingly shabby and run down. Needs a top to bottom renovation.

Room Tip: Make a reservation at another hotel.

Pretty gardens and large grounds with ample trees and bird life but, for western travellers it is not a great destination. You will find lavish conference facilities, spa and other amenities with nice rooms. Service is fine and staff can manage some english bu, there are many hotels in Changsha that will wow you. The prees resort does not! Rooms not so tidy and clean and carpets in corridors worn and dirty. Like in many lavish chinese hotels the lack of maintenance and substandard housekeeping soon erodes the immage of the hotel, and experience of the guests.

Coffee and tea in the coffe shop is overpriced as are the drinks.

The distance from the city is also a problem.

Not real bad but, I am not impressed and will not recommend at all.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Preess Resort & Hotel is a huge place far from the center of Changsha and the airport. Actually it's in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are big and clean. As usual in China the bed is too hard to be comfortable. The internet connection in the room (by cable) is very good. The wifi connection in the hotel is extremely poor. There is only one restaurant. I don't know why it is called 'western', because it's not. There is no western breakfast at all. Only toast, some marmalade and a fried egg is available. Oh, you can have coffee, but (by the taste of it) it is made hours before. For chinese people there is a big variety in chinese food. The hotel has a big indoor swimming pool, sauna and spa. These facilities look very Spartan.
Some of the staff members do speak a bit of english. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Don't expect a western five star hotel.

If you are not Chinese, you have a lot problem in this old hotel. Staff is nice but have a very big diffuculties to communicate in english. The basic things as asking for seperate bills in restaurant or another room is very difficult. There is no any Nonsmoking room. Climatisation system is not working properly if your neiber in next room is smoker you are sure that air in your room is same as in lowest level pub. You have very pure possibilities how to get out the hotel to city or other place. On the street you can not find any taxi regular taxi, you can use hotel taxi which are more then double priced. All equipment inside is old, curtain, carpets, beds. I will never come back to this hotel
