“Moved to this hotel with good dining places in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Rooms roomy and clean, you get a good night sleep. Breakfast buffee is everything what you are hoping for, nice hotel in quiet location, not that much shopping nearby but good for a relaxing evening in one of the bar/restaurants nearby

Room Tip: I stayed at the 19th floor and the room was very nice, clean and quiet

The stay here was far from the usual China 5 star hotel experience. We stayed there over the May Day weekend so of course it was busy with local tourists but it was as if the hotel had never been full before and they couldn't handle it. There were LONG lines outside the cafe in the morning for breakfast. The first morning staff just shrugged their shoulders until a manager came through and plucked several foreigners out of the line and sent us up to the executive floor lounge. You would think this would be a perk but the selection up there was abysmal and it wasn't until our last morning (we were sent upstairs multiple mornings) when the crowds had thinned and we could eat in the main restaurant that we realized how cheated we were since that was clearly the good buffet! The pool was constantly out of towels (again just a shrug of the shoulders) even though there was never more that 10 people in the pool every time we went. The shallow pool was a constant murky yellow water (It seemed to be used as a kid's pool but it was gross). Room furniture was worn in weird places (strange divets in the chairs) and a constant battle with the front desk over little things. The one positive was the concierge who was extremely helpful with train tickets. Overall though not the usual Traders/Shangri La experience.

Dear Ms. Cathy C, we are terribly sorry for the displeasure you experienced at our hotel last May Day. I would be so much disappointed if I were there as a guest. Actually the management reviewed the operation of that day and learnt a lesson in order to improve our service. We sincerely hope you are able to give us another chance whereby we can show our Shangri-la's hospitality. And we look forwards to welcoming you back in the near future.

Looking for an excellent hotel? Look no further, Traders Fude Hotel in Changzhou won my heart! I am here for business and Traders has met all of my expectations and others that were not expected.

I have stayed in Traders Fudu a few times and I love to eat at the Sushi bar! Very recommended!

It's a good hotel. Cannot fault the rooms or service or breakfast - all good.

The checkout is the issue, every time we stay it takes an age to check anyone out. Get there when there is a large queue and expect to wait 45 minutes - not the best when you have a train to catch.

If you venture out of the hotel - beware to the left of hotel as you walk out are the girly bars and you will get ripped off. Best to turn right and walk around to the back of the block -where there is a great pub with good food and beer.

I stayed in this hotel for meetings in the industrial zone nearby. It is not new, but well maintained. Every facility is rather large here, including the huge reception cum lounge area, its Chinese restaurant on Level 2, and bedrooms. The Executive Club Lounge on Level 31 is not well used, and is rather small compared with other facilities. There is a bar with live band and cigar room on Level M, accessible by staircases next to the lift lobby on the ground level.
Yes, my bedroom was clean, spacious and comfortable for both working at its desk and sleeping in its bed. But I cannot help wondering why most hotels, like this one, choose to place "mini-bar" items like bottle of wine, sweets, biscuits, and nuts on top of the fridge. Do they know warm temperature will cause the quality of such food/drink items to deteriorate rather rapidly?

This is a very good hotel, particularly for the money, I paid RMB 600 (£60). The staff on checking in were very friendly, and the facilities were good quality, finished to a good standard. If I am honest I was expecting the WOW of a Shangri-La hotel, which is probably an unfair expectation even if it is part of the group.

Two problems that will stop me going back. On checking in my company credit card was not accepted, now this was not a problem with the card as I phoned the bank, this was a problem with their system. This has never happened to me before and was embarrassing, although the staff were good. This was in the middle of a 10 day trip and no other hotel had a problem with my card. Secondly the internet connection across the hotel was below average to terrible, and as a business traveller this is vital.

Generally the staff were good, the room a good standard.
