We stayed at the Huaqiao International Hotel for three nights in July 2010. We had been booked into the California Sunshine Hotel, but our guide changed our reservation in advance because that hotel is located in an out-of-the-way location.
The room was clean. Beds were clean and hard (Chinese style). The room was roomy enough for the two of us---my 11-year-old and me. Fridge in room worked, but is not set up as a mini-bar. It was empty and unplugged, but we turned it on and used it for cooling drinks and keeping snacks. Complimentary water bottles were provided each day.
Bathroom was fine. Not much toilet paper provided, but it was easy to get more from the staff. The shower is located in the wall between the toilet area and the room. So, if you're into it...you can put on a show for your roommate(s) while you shower! There is a working shade, however, in the shower that can be lowered when needed. No problem with water pressure.
Hotel staff speak almost no English, so it's important to have some rudimentary language skills or a good phrasebook. Our room rate included buffet breakfast, located in a pleasant room on the sixth floor that had a cool koi fish pond in it. Food was good. Mostly Chinese food...if you're looking for a "western" breakfast, this won't be for you.
We ate dinner there one night, served in the same room. We were the only diners in the room. No wait staff spoke English. Trying to convey our wishes was challenging (and pretty funny for both them and us!). It worked out in the end, and the vegetables, rice, and dumplings we ordered were really tasty. The staff was very nice, especially in trying to negotiate the language barrier.
Hotel is in a pretty convenient location, near a shopping street that had a good selection of shops. Despite its location, noise was not a problem for us.
This hotel didn't offer the "extra" amenities that westerners typically expect, but it was a reasonable, clean hotel with friendly, helpful staff in a convenient location in Gaoyou.
