Joycity Hotel & Apartment

Reviewed October 7, 2009

Typing this review from my hotel room as it has free internet access!!

We were upgrade to a 2 Bedroom suite so you can say that our stay was great! Our suite consisted of 2 bedrooms, a hall with a kitchen (complete with electric kettle, washing machine, microwave machine, full-size fridge and a stove top cooker)! There is a 60" HDTV in each bedroom and also in the hall. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms lovely. We had our 5-night stay so we REALLY made use of most of the kitchen, right down to washing our clothes for the long stay.

The hotel is right next to a hugh shopping mall - Joy City Shopping Mall. That's great as we can find good and cheap food on the 6th, 7th and 8th floor. The mall has many shops which sold many good quality products of international brands.

Breakfast spread was really quite good and a great way to start our day of fun and shopping!!

TIP: The mall is connected to the hotel via a security door on the ground floor. You just have to swipe your hotel room card at the security detector point (on the mall side) and the door will lead you to the hotel lift lobby.

My husband and I stayed there for several nights right after Chinese new year. I asked my brother to book through http://www.ctrip.com/. The rate was 398/night, quite reasonable for standard room and we were upgraded to a business suite. The suite is modern and clean. There is a bedroom and a living room with open kitchen. I actually invited friends to come and have a cup of tea before dining out. Location is perfect, close to subway and airport bus, 5 to 10 minutes walk. There are several shopping malls around with nice restaurants. It was a perfect stay and great value for the money.

I stayed there for 10 days in May. I had a large & bright corner room but the place is not as clean as one would expect. Mildew around the tiles in the shower and dozens of greassy fingerprints on the door were the most obvious. I complained to reception but didn't see much difference. By the way, reception was not the most efficient except for a young german lady. It took them 2 days & a lot of explanations to understand I was not checking out but only moving from a solo traveler status to part of a group.
It's too bad because the nearby subway station & the adjacent huge shopping mall with 3 storeys of restaurants make the location interesting.

I booked this hotel though a china travel website. We stayed 4 nights in there. The hotel is better than our expectations. First, it upgraded as business room for double bed. The room is clean, big and good in fecilities. The services is acceptable. At least, they respond quickly to my request. The quality of breakfast is fairly good, the staff pick off the dishes as well. The kettle is dirty and carpet is dirty. Location is excellent. The bell-boy can speck English.

We found the staff to be very friendly, room was comfortable however more attention needs to be taken with cleaning the floors as there were black hairs everywhere. Unfortunately the bed was VERY hard something you don't need after a 20 hour flight. Great location with access to a shopping centre and ATM's via a walkway on the 6th floor. Great breakfast with heaps to choose from both western and asian style cuisine. Also, love the bar in the lobby - the barman is a gem and a pretty good snooker player.
We had fun.

TIP: If using the fridge in your room leave the cupboard door ajar so the heat from the motor can escape - we found it worked better that way.
