“Honesty Would be a Better Policy”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

This hotel is rated 4 stars by the Chinese tourist bureau. I saw the award in the lobby. It is reputed to be the best hotel in Linhai, occupying a commanding position over the town square with a view of the ancient gate and wall. But while the view is true, the rest is hogwash. This is a two star property. The carpets are stained, the lights don't work in the fitness room, the coffee at breakfast is undrinkable. But, the view is real, the air conditioning works, they have at least one channel on the TV in English and the breakfast buffet while not "Western" as advertised is very good by Chinese standards. Simply put, this a hotel the Chinese stay in as a value property. So while it's perhaps poor by Western standards, it's good value by Chinese standards. I got a room here for the price of a bottle of wine at my last hotel. I would recommend this property for budget travel. But by billing the property as a luxury location, I have to downgrade them from average to poor. If they had been honest, and advertised two stars, I would rate them average.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view of the lake and wall.
