Don't confuse this hotel with the San Want hotel where the rooms... More

The hotel is 5 mins walk away from Zhongshan mrt station (line 2 and line 3) and Songjian Nanjing mrt Station (line 4), which is very perfect if you plan to travel by mrt most of the time. The room is very clean and spacious, with both bathtub (bath salt provided) and shower. I feel that they have put in... More
