Great location. It's within 10mins walk from Yuanshan station and it's convenient to travel around using the metro. There's a small convenience store just beside the hotel in case you need anything and a larger 7-11 if you are willing to walk further. My room didn't come with breakfast, but if you need breakfast there's a Si Hai Dou Jiang store near the hotel (opens from 4pm to next day 11am) - cheap and good food. It's also just one station away from Shilin Night Market and about two stations away from Ningxia Rd Night Market. Overall I would say the location was really good.
Mine was an Executive Double room. The room was large and spacious. Safe, iron and ironing board, mini bar, robes, slippers, bath tub etc. - everything you suppose they should have, they have it all. Large and clean beds too. They have wireless internet, so it's good for business travellers I guess, but the internet speed isn't very fast and it tends to drop off at times. No swimming pool and spa service but the executive garden kind of makes up for it.
But the thing that let me down though was the service. It was reasonable service to expect from a 4 star hotel, but nothing exceptional. Generally helpful and polite, but after that you run out of good things to say about their staff. Sometimes they seem kind of understaffed to me. Also, there was a day when housekeeping made up half the room, but forgot to do the other half. It was kind of disappointing.
