“Location is great.....for Haining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Normally stay at the Royal Palace when on business in Haining. However, the location of this hotel is much more "western friendly" and is very close to Mediterranea - Good italialn restaruant with good pizza, ok pasta and excellent tiramisu. Hotel has a bit of a plantation feel...which is a much appreciated departure from the overwhelming stark, unfamiliar environment of Haining.

But there are some drawbacks...dig a little deeper beyond the warm inviting exterior, and the picture changes...the main hallway has marble floors and all hard surfaces which gives it the acoustic qualities the grand canyon....closing doors sound like friday night at a bowling alley...

The room, though nicely appointed with high ceilings, comfortable mattress, good sheets and pillows....is yet another example of "China nice"....a perfect example is the bottom of the bathroom door...apparently, it had to be modified for proper clearance,and whoever sawed it off, did so incorrectly, so that the veneer ripped in 3" to 5" spikes along the bottom...it looks like an unhappy EKG readout or a failed lie detector test. Then there is the air conditioner....it has been on for 9 hours and the room is somehow half a degree warmer than when I arrived....which is no small feat, since the windows were open at arrival and it was +40 degrees outside....
But the biggest drawback is this strange smell in the room....at first I thought it smelled like fresh hay...but actually, it's more like sawdust...which is weird...China is an odd bouquet of smells...but sawdust...why would a hotel room smell like sawdust..and the windows be open.....(light bulb goes off)....of course, someone got sick in this room the night before, and they are trying to air it out....refreshing...
I could ask for another room....but I was unsuccessful getting a wakeup call...the 3 people I spoke to didn't speak a word of english...not even "thank you"....
Successful traveling in China is all about managing your expectations...Iphone's have alarms so stressing over a wake up call is a waste...the hallway is noisey..but only during the day...its 3 in the morning right now and I havent heard a sound in hours...and as for the smell and the weak air conditioner....you can't put a positive spin on everything...but the tiramisu at dinner was amazing...the kind of amazing that makes sweaty stinky rooms in Haining managable....

Room Tip: Learn to say "May I please have a room that does not smell like vomit?" in Chinese Also...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Chose the hotel because of its proximity to Lake Hills Golf Club in Haining (approx 20-30 mins away). New faux Spanish style hotel located in low rise southern part of Haining. Looks good while new, quality is decent but, as always with local 2nd / 3rd tier cities, service & maintenance is quite poor. Rooms spacious, big comfortable bed and well appointed but already getting dirty (particularly the carpets). Breakfast was quite poor and service non-existent. Front desk staff nice and helpful. (As of May 2012 there is a building site to the north - give it another 6 months before taking a north facing room. Nice low-rise Buildings a finished but still a little noisy in the morning.)

Room Tip: South facing rooms over look the pool not the building site next door (nearly finished)

Visited the hotel in march 2011. It is part of a new build area that should look like old Italian style village. But the neighborhood is dead quiet so the targeted atmosphere did not arrive yet. The hotel itself looks very nice, well maintained and the rooms (beds) are great. But the hotel does not "live". No word English at the tiny reception which is not a problem for me but also not really good attempts to get the messages across. Stayed there for 2 nights and was almost happy to leave this ghost town. But for sure the potential is there.
