We were told this was the BEST hotel in Changsha. While reasonably located, it has no grand driveway or lobby. The room is reasonably sized and the beds are firm. Breakfast buffet spread was abundant but with so many tourists haggling for their share of food (especially the Korean tourists who persistently nudged the quequers out of the way) and the lack of waiting staff to cope with the morning rush, it was a difficult environment to enjoy a peaceful morning meal. Perhaps what annoyed us most was that we were told that using bathroom amenities like shampoo, bath gel, tooth brush would attract additional charges to the room bill. Shocking, isn't it? Apparently the local council deemed the rule necessary to tighten hotel guests usage and limit waste (the wierdiest green policy I have ever come across!). We had to go to the nearest Watsons to buy our bathroom supplies.
No concierge, receptionist, bell-boy, waiters, waitress ever greeted us on our first and return visit within a week. Strange place - perhaps some early success has gone into their heads and they think they are the best. Don't believe it!
